FBI Accepts New Evidence in Cold Case of Hijacker D.B. Cooper

A day before Thanksgiving in 1971, a man only known to authorities as D.B. Cooper jumped out of a hijacked airplane with $200,000 and parachuted into the night.

After spending 45 years searching for the suspect, the FBI last year announced it had stopped actively pursuing the case.

That may change after a team of private investigators coordinated by a filmmaker found “an odd piece of buried foam” that they believe may be material from Cooper’s parachute backpack, the New York Daily News reports. Just weeks earlier, the team found what they think are remnants of Cooper’s parachute strap. 

The FBI said it received three other “unknown” fabric samples.

The discoveries were made by a team assembled by Thomas Colbert, a former media executive and police trainer. Former FBI supervisor Hadley McCann is overseeing the cold case team.

Colbert runs a website, DBCooper.com, that is dedicated to the cold case.
