History Channel Predictions:

I have no idea what suspect this cold case team has found, but I have some predictions for how things are going to be presented:

1) The suspect will be an "interesting character," someone who didn't lead the "normal life" of a job, a wife, two kids and a dog. He will be a skydiver or smokejumper, maybe a lifetime bachelor.

2) He will be wealthy, and his wealth will look inexplicable to an outsider.

3) Like so many suspects, he'll be a decent fit to the physical description and sketch.

4) He will be native to the Pacific Northwest.

5) There will be a silly or ridiculous explanation of the Tena Bar find.

6) The suspect will have cached a vehicle somewhere in the woods, or he had an accomplice.

7) There will be a mysterious injury of some kind, like a knee injury or he'll suddenly have a limp around the time of the hijacking.

8) He will be a loner, or someone very difficult to deal with, having only a few trusted friends.

9) The tie evidence might be mentioned, but they'll just say "he got it at a thrift store."

10) There will be an awkward confrontation with the suspect and an investigator, and the investigator will be certain the suspect is "hiding something" rather than the suspect just be reacting to some camera weirdo asking stupid questions.

I'd say you get more of these right than not. I'd put the over/under at 6.

Bigger Bets, Bigger Odds

Let's add more categories:

The History Channel docu suspect will also have:

1. A link between DB Cooper and another major criminal whodunit - ie: Altacraz/Zodiac/Black Dahlia

2. There is an eyewitness who was a child in 1971; now 50-something.

3. Speaks and writes French

4. His fingerprints and DNA have never been on file

5. Trained as a smokekjumper

6. Suspect has a prior claim to minor fame, ie: was a contestant on Jeopardy, swam in the 1960 Olympics, etc.

Side Bets

The FBI's response to the History Channel/Tom Colbert/James Forbes breaking the case will be:

1. Nothing official from James Comey.

2. Tacit approval by a non-response to Tom Fuentes' support for the TC/JF suspect.

3. Curtis Eng will say nothing.

4. In celebration for solving the case, the FBI will close off 3rd Street in Seattle and host a block party, with entertainment from Pearl Jam

Can anyone explain to me the difference between criminology and criminalistics? Thanks!

Yes: Criminology is an area of sociology that focuses on the study of crimes and their causes, effects, and social impact. A criminologist's job responsibilities involve analyzing data to determine why the crime was committed and to find ways to predict, deter, and prevent further criminal behavior. Courses in Criminology are usually taught in a Sociology Dept.

Criminalisticses is just another word for Criminal Forensics, which deals with evidence gathering, processing, interpretation, and presentation.

My bet is that Jo will quickly establish a connection between Duane Weber and the History Channel's new hot suspect... or completely attack/discredit the new suspect. One or the other. It's binary. No other outcome is possible.

Her and RMB will both go into damage control mode. Folks like Vicki, Nmiwrecks & Sailshaw will take an honest look at the new guy and not feel threatened by the idea that the person they think may be Cooper, may not actually be Cooper.

Thank you.  I consider that a very nice compliment.  I actually discussed this with another forum member a few nights ago.  I'm all about the truth, no matter what that may be.  If it's the new guy, an old suspect or even Kenny, I would be happy just to know the truth.  A couple of people aren't allowed to contribute to this forum because they only want  >:D"their truth" >:D.  And when others don't buy into  >:D"their truth" >:D, these folks can become pretty nasty.  That's not good for anybody.    O0

Speaking of the truth, if someone catches wind of a new youtube video that provides critical new information, and they pay to have the video buried, what does that say about that person(s) commitment to the truth?  Time will tell, I guess.    O0

Watching the sneak peek video, I will admit the older gentleman who answer's the door does look like Lyle, but once I seen the photo album had pictures of skydivers in it. that kind of debunked that avenue. they do briefly show the overlay of Kenny, and the Cooper sketch, but my guess is this will be part of the show where they go over the known suspects. "confidence is low"  ;D

Thanks Parrot  :D

Even in the DZ, I have said. If it is proven that Cooper is someone else then at least I know it is not my father.

On my way to the taping for this new Cooper show on History, I received a message through my LinkedIn from a detective in Colorado asking me to call him. A few days before I made a comment and linked a video on a newspaper article about an unsolved homicide 1981. This was a cold case and the victim was unidentified. The photo of the deceased man is in NamUs, and although ten years after my father disappeared, looked similar to what I thought my father might look like ,so I left a comment. Speaking with the detective he informed me that the deceased did not have a tattoo of an anchor on this forearm. So...not my dad.

I wonder if the FBI will say anything after the show in the following days? they have contacted them, so I'm curious to see if they will make any comments about the suspect. it would be nice, but I'm guessing that not a peep will come out of them  :'(

The FBI, the detractors. coming this fall to a theater near you!  O0 O0 O0 (according to the gripe site anyway  8))
