Just thought I'd put up a link to a story which ran a couple months ago.  Just a friendly reminder, there is zero evidence linking missing person Robert Richard Lepsy to the D.B. Cooper case.  Some people think he resembles the FBI composite sketch of Cooper, some people think he does not.  Lepsy had no known skydiving training at the time of his disappearance (1969).

Lepsy. Candidate?
« Reply #288 on: July 15, 2016, 05:15:08 AM »
I am making a first post and have read for years about the skyjacker that vanished with the money. The leads pointing to Mr Lepsy as a candidate are compelling. If he left his home under duress and soon to be off'd by would be bad guys it seems like more than 2,000 would have gone missing from a grocery store safe. My question is other than foul play what other reasons would be given to disqualify Richard Lepsy from candidacy as the the "one". I gather he was an easy rider dreamer and maybe not to realistic about the laws of physics and survival.

Hello JonTaylor, and welcome to the forum.

I will be moving this post over to The Lepsy thread. since one has already been made. I like to keep the amount of threads down to a reasonable amount. I will keep this post in place until the end of the day so you don't think it was removed for unknown reasons. you didn't do anything wrong, it's just part of the process. people can continue to post here, they will all be moved at the same time anyway.. C:-)

Welcome to the forum.

I think you are taking the wrong approach. Instead of asking, "what other reasons would be given to disqualify Richard Lepsy from candidacy as the the "one"", the correct approach would be to ask instead, "what qualifies him as being a candidate". Other than being a missing person, I don't see much else.

He does fit the physical description (height, build, eye color, hair color, from the mid-west, etc.).  90% of the suspects presented don't even make it past that.  He resembles the composite sketch based on the opinion of someone who sat next to Cooper for hours, taking note of his physical appearance. 

People have been taking the  ;)"correct" ;) approach for 45 years now.  How's that workin out for ya?    O0    O0    O0

Hello and thank you to the administration of the forum for accepting me as a member. I very much enjoy your forum especially the links to so many informative sites. I have a question not so much about Mr. Lepsy being a candidate but more of may I propose the story of a new, never before mentioned candidate. And if so, which category would I use to propose such candidate. This such proposal would require me to relate a somewhat lengthy story of what I believe is the true story of the hijacking and events leading up to it as told to me by a close friend before his passing. This story was related to me more than ten years ago and has since been somewhat corroborated by new findings in the case (at least new to me) as per the titanium particles and profiles presented by Citizen Sleuths and others. The candidate I was told of absolutely fits this profile as well as being a certified pilot and known parachutist. If I am in the wrong forum for such a story would you possibly be able to direct me to a more appropriate forum or such. If you would prefer to communicate in some other means please let me know. I know this must sound pretty implausible but I really believe it would be worth your time. The gentleman that related this story to me never ever lied to me. Thank you again.

Hello, and welcome to the forum. I'm glad you find our forum informative. if you have a new suspect in mind the correct thread would be under "Suspects And Confessions"

Don't let some of these guys intimidate you  C:-) most bark, but have dull teeth  O0 O0 O0

I think it was Ole Miss Cub who awhile ago published a list of known missing persons from that time who fit the description.  There aren't many (around a dozen or so).  But, like Parrotheadvol says being missing alone isn't enough to make anyone a suspect.  However, it might make them worth a "look-see" if the FBI were still seeking suspects.

Point taken. I was talking more about the fact that there is nothing known about Lepsy that suggests that he would have had the knowledge in certain areas that he would require. Granted, perhaps he could have found this knowledge in the two years between his disappearance and the hijacking. The Lepsy mystery is intriguing, for sure. I'd like to know what became of him and I'd love to see his family get that closure as well. But I personally do not consider him to be a strong Cooper suspect. But, I guess all of the strong suspects have been ruled out.....

I totally get what you are saying.  I guess I can't figure out who a "strong suspect" is.  90% of the suspects presented don't even make it past Agent Carr's description test.  For 45 years this has been one of the most popular and researched unsolved mysteries in the country.  If there were any connection to anyone, we would have heard about it by now.  Maybe this mystery is unsolved because somebody with zero known connections (Ninja CIA parachute training, Aerospace engineer, etc.) commented the skyjacking.  But this someone has to fit the basic physical description given by the stewardesses. 

That being said, nobody has answered the question "what reason would be given to disqualify Richard Lepsy from candidacy as the the 'one'?"

And please let us know who the "strong suspects" are.

And please let us know who the "strong suspects" are.

That raises a real open ended question.

Who can we disqualify?

Kenny Christiansen, Duane Weber, Barb Dayton, LD Cooper, Mel Wilson, Sheridan Peterson, etc. -- just like Dick Lepsy, none of them can be disqualified either, because nobody can prove they were somewhere else.

That's why you can't look from that side.  If you go by process of elimination, you can't eliminate enough suspects.

You can't be a strong suspect unless something connects him (or her?) to the crime.
