D.b. CooperD.b. Cooper, “DB Cooper”, the mysterious man who hijacked a plane in 1971 with the threat of dynamite, and then parachuted on the state of Washington, with 200,000 and was one of the largest in the United States “unsolved mysteries. Cooper disappeared into thin air and was never captured. Now, the FBI says they have a very promising lead that could finally break the case for 40 years.
The researchers say they are evidence of the fingerprints of a new suspect. Authorities say the newest is the “most promising” a day in their efforts to fight the United States only solves the kidnapping.

The mystery kidnapper calling himself Dan Cooper or DB Cooper boarded a Northwest flight in Portland for a flight to Seattle on the night of November 24, 1971, and commandeered the plane, claiming he had dynamite. In Seattle, Cooper demanded and received 200,000 and four parachutes and then asked to fly to Mexico.

Cooper parachuted into southwestern Washington the departure of the tail with two ramps. He was never seen or heard from again.

The FBI is hoping to link the latest suspect to a tie Cooper left on the plane, along with cigarette butts in an ashtray with DNA evidence and fingerprints.

There have been more than 1,000 suspects in the past 40 years, but none more promising reports that the arrest of the latter suspect.

“We actually have a new suspect we’re seeing,” said FBI spokesman Ayn Dietrich.

“This is an advantage of credibility that caught our attention recently through a colleague of the police,” he said.

“Lead is plausible that someone who is possible to connect to the kidnapper is strong,” Dietrich told the Daily Telegraph. “And the suspect is not a name that has come before.” An element belonging to the suspect has been sent foranlysis in a forensic laboratory in Quantico, Virginia.

“We hope that fingerprints can be off of it,” he said. “It would be a significant advantage.

“And this is the look of our most promising to date.”

The FBI has refused to reveal whether the suspect is alive. “In general, most of the issues to look now deceased based on time,” said Dietrich.

In the 40 years since the case, many came to believe that Cooper was Richard McCoy, a veteran of the Vietnam War, experienced paratrooper who staged a similar hijacking several months later.

Authorities said McCoy, who was killed in a shootout with law enforcement after a prison escape in 1974, simply did not fit the description of Cooper by two flight attendants.

In 1980, a boy walking near the Columbia River and 5800 found the stolen money, in tattered bills and 20.
