The mystery man known as D.B. Cooper, who parachuted from a plane in 1971 with $200,000 in ransom money, probably died during his jump, according to FBI agents on the case, Ronald Kessler of Newsmax reports.

FBI agent Ralph Himmelsbach was the case agent on the case, reported Kessler, who just authored the book “The Secrets of the FBI.” The case gained renewed interest when a woman claiming to be Cooper’s niece recently came forward, claiming she had heard her uncle talk about the heist. She has reportedly passed a polygraph test.

Kessler reports that Himmelsbach was the agent from the get go when Cooper boarded the Northwest Orient plane in Portland, Ore. He claimed to have a bomb and had the plane fly to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where he got the ransom money. He subsequently parachuted from the plane.”

“I chased his plane in an Army helicopter just for a while until the weather was so bad that they called us back, and then I continued working the case,” Himmelsbach told Newsmax.“Then when the money was found on a river bank, it was turned in to me, and five years to the day after the skyjacking I testified before the grand jury, and they indicted him for aircraft piracy.”
