Now the FBI is back on the case with a release titled, cheerfully, D.B. Cooper Redux. (The language is remarkably chatty throughout, actually; perhaps the bureau is trying on a new user-friendly image.)
The release includes some new details about Cooper:
- The FBI “lifted a DNA sample” in 2001 from his J.C. Penney necktie, which he removed before jumping. (It’s a clip-on!)
- He was not an experienced skydiver, as once thought.
- They feel sure he had no help on the ground.
The G-men also specifically reject Kenneth Christiansen, the man suggested by New York. Killjoys.
(Thanks for the tip, Mike Duffy.)
