FBI No Longer Investigating Case of Infamous Hijacker D.B. Cooper

The head-scratching mystery of D.B. Cooper may never be solved.

The lone agent assigned to the case has been switched to other mysteries, “effectively shuttering the 45-year-old case after the FBI – and troves of tipsters – failed to identify the infamous hijacker,” the New York Daily News reports. 

Cooper was a passenger on a Northwest Orient Airlines plane when he showed what appeared to be a bomb, put on a parachute and jumped from the jet with a bag of $200,000 in stolen cash.

“Unfortunately, none of the well-meaning tips or applications of new investigative technology have yielded the necessary proof,” FBI spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich-Williams said in a statement late Monday.

Many theories have surfaced about Cooper’s whereabouts, but none have been proven.
