The D.B. Cooper hijacking case remains one of the world’s great unsolved mysteries.
This was the case back in the 1970s where a man identifying himself as D.B. Cooper hijacked a jet liner, and ultimately made his escape in the dead of night over the pacific northwest, when he parachuted from the rear rank of the plane.
The case has fired the imagination of mystery lovers and armchair detectives ever since, to the point where last year, The History Channel had a ratings winner with it’s multi-part series, “D.B. Cooper: Case Closed?
The show examined the evidence, which it said pointed directly at one man, 74-year-old Robert Rackstraw.
Now, a letter has been uncovered that investigators argue confirms that the reason the FBI never laid charges is because there was a cover-up. The letter was obtained from the FBI through the Freedom of Information Act, was sent by “Cooper”, and contains information that only he could have known.
Investigators says it couldn’t be anyone but Rackstraw, while the FBI claims that it still doesn’t have reason to re-open the case.
The evidence is laid out very well in this article. What do you think?
