it sounds like he's saying "Goodbye


Do you blame him?

I do.

I believe Brent and Ross have an obligation to Lisa to help her find her father. One that overrides their effort to prove that her father is DB Cooper. They have taken Lisa's story, and used part of it - the Lepsy-is-Cooper angle - it to their own end. Okay. That's fair storytelling. But the family is still in need, and their present circumstance presents a compelling story of what they are going through to find their missing father. Brent seems to be backing away from that story. Similarly, Vicki says that she has received zippo involvement from Brent and WZZM about her search for her father. Zero follow-up. That is not okay.

And I get lambasted? Further:

I'm not the one saying to the world that Lepsy is the Best Suspect. Ross is. But he can't back it up at all. And he says that I'm outclassed by Brent. Really? Brent put Lisa on national TV shouting "That's Daddy!" and then backs away from her ordeal?

That's classy? Yougottabekiddingme.

Do you blame him? you pounced on him the whole time he's been here! the guy wrote a story about a missing person who seems to fit parts of the Cooper story. this is not Lyle Christiansen, these people have families who would like closure. they actually cared about him. they are looking for anything that will help.

I look at the whole picture. the story exposed two missing persons. how can this be wrong? is it worth running off the guy who did the story, or cause another to apologize, are you shit'n me?

Who is the best match for Cooper? Lespy, or someone that's been discussed for decades? they all have flaws. some more than others. personally, I don't have a favorite. I try to stay out of that area. I will comment on them, but I don't like to lean one way, or the other. just like the sketch, it's not a photograph. the description is probably the best bet.

Blevins keeps whining about the description being wrong so it will fit Kenny, but doesn't have a problem putting Kenny beside the sketch?

Perhaps, a little more help from us can help couldn't hurt. Ross has put a lot of his personal time into this. we can at least show some appreciation for his work.....

Thank you Shutter, I appreciate that.  I also appreciate your website.  I know you put your hard earned money on the line for this place, not to mention the many hours you put in to make this place special.  I truly believe that one of the best things to happen to the Cooper case was the closing of the "Dropzone" and the success of "thedbcooperforum".

Unfortunately, there are a few people here stuck in the past.  They stick to their opinions and are as inflexible as Robert and Jo.  The Cooper case has passed them by, and they don't even realize it.  The rest of us will keep pushing forward with innovative and refreshing ideas. 

If you are a guest looking at this website right now, I want to encourage you to sign up and join the fun.  You'll run into a few crackpots and cranks along the way, but for the most part, the people here are very helpful and knowledgeable about the Cooper case.

+1  :)  Hope you arent leaving - your thoughtfulness and insight are valuable here.

Bruce, can we be done with this please?  You're embarrassing yourself.  I'm sorry you are so hurt by all this and feel the need to lash out at us.  Brent has put images of Lisa's father and Vicki's father in front of millions of people.  His story literally has millions of clicks.  That's a very positive thing.  Instead of looking at us and asking what we are doing, look in the mirror and ask "what Bruce Smith is doing?"  Nobody is stopping you from solving this case, or trying to help people in need, or doing whatever it is you want to do.

He's also hopeful one of the stewardesses who were the primary witnesses to the hijacking will see the Lepsy photos and make a comment of some sort.


See if Storyteller can pull some strings to local news stations in the area's of the stews?

The basis for the theory? Dick Lepsy bears a strong physical resemblance in photos to the FBI composite sketch of D.B. Cooper and the hijacker was described as wearing clothing and shoes similar to what Lepsy favored. That and the fact that neither man has surfaced in more than 40 years.

So far, the media attention in Michigan, Oregon and elsewhere hasn't turned up any new leads on either the Lepsy or Cooper end of things. "Nothing has shaken loose yet," he said. "A lot of people are talking but no new information has surfaced."


From this new information about the Cooper case we must assert:
1. Cooper looked like Lepsy. All FBI sketches and witness reports are wrong.
2. Cooper dressed like Lepsy. All other thoughts/descriptions are out.
3. Cooper never surfaced anywhere in forty years ... all other claims are wrong.
4. Nothing has shaken loose yet.

Bruce and Blevins, change your damned books to record the "true facts" of the case as per the above media account!

 :)

 :-*  Happy Holidays everbody!  :-*
Now that everyone has calmed down a bit, I think it's a good time to reflect.  What surprised me most about all this media attention, is the response from the U.K.  There seems to be huge interest in the Cooper Case over there:

If I'm not mistaken, Marla's story originated from the U.K.?

Kind of.

What originated in the UK was the announcement that the FBI had their "most promising" suspect. This was written by the journalist Alex Hannaford in the Sunday London Telegraph. This info hit the streets on Saturday, July 30, 2011 - in London, but Hannaford didn't name any names. Intrepid (tipped-off news reporters???) in Seattle, most notably the guy from the PI, Casey McEarthney-something, got on the story and interviewed Ayn Dietrich immediately, and the name of LD Cooper hit the newsstands on Sunday, I believe, and Marla soon after. By Tuesday, Marla was famous worldwide. Remember, Marla had a "personal" relationship with the assistant news director for ABC-TV, according to TB, and it appears that an interview with Marla was ready to go.

I listened to that. It's a pretty good synopsis. The host seems neutral. It's worth a listen. Thanks Vicki.
