thanks for the photo. My only comment...and again I'm not arguing - just pointing out some things that Sheridan's defense attorney might bring up.
How can you determine that those are imitation pig skin leather loafers from a picture?  --and-- loafers are most often defined as low step-in shoes, without laces, resembling a moccasin (may be with or without tassels or penny).
I could be wrong but if I were on the jury I don't know that I would look at those shoes and think "loafers".

"SORRY TO KEEP POSTING SO MUCH "

Sailshaw, you post as many times as you wish sir. I don't think anyone would object. I would rather see multiple posts instead of multiple arguments  8)

You say:  " thanks for the photo. My only comment...and again I'm not arguing - just pointing out some things that Sheridan's defense attorney might bring up.

I say: "In those days Sheridan would not have had money to waste on "real pig skin" and they look like what we called "loafers" with no more laces than four and low cut and not oxfords. Sorry but some loafers had laces but not as many as oxfords. You are probably thinking about "penney loafers" that had no laces but that did not define what we called loafer. They had a slot for a penney to be inserted but all loafers did not have penney slots either. We really need to ask the Flight Attendants if the Sharidan loafers were like what they saw on DB Cooper. I don't think Tina is able to talk about the case but possibly the other Attendant might
Too bad we can't show Tina the photo of Sheridan's face and the scar/dinple on his left cheek.

Hi All
I think that I made a mis-speak in that I said Sheridan's loafers were "Pig Skin" and looking through the info I have the crew said they were "Pebble Grain Leather Loafers". So no Pig Skin in the description, sorry. My loafers that I wear daily are two eye lace-ups and low cut like Sheridan's so they can be put on and off without using the laces. Notice that Sheridan's socks are white which is not normal with a dark suit but some did it in those days to help with their athletics feet problems. Did DB Cooper wear white socks?

Hey Georger:

4th grade teach decided to ditch the book, Blast, and send all of them into the trash.  The kiddies spotted too many factual errors, too many made-up fables, and an author that kept repeating only one piece of alleged witness accounting that formed the basis for the entire book.  Smart bunch, those 4th graders.  They decided to go back to "cat in the hat" series which offers better information.
snoop.

Coopsnoop:  4th graders had this level of sophistication discussing the Cooper case?  All those insightful, adult questions posed earlier?  I don't buy it, it sounds pretty contrived.  Why don't you just come out and pose your questions and concerns, no need to hide behind a bunch of 4th graders.  We're adults here, we can handle it.  MeyerLouie

Compare my avitar of DB/Sheridan with photo of Duane. Hairline, ears, nose, lips, jaw and chin. Duane does not fit the description.

The post is dated 2011. Came out in response to the uproar with Marla's brush with fame no doubt.
I wonder if he ever followed up?
Looks like the blog hasn't been updated for a couple of years but the links are active and the CA PI license for his company is current.

I doubt anything came of it, just thought I would toss it out there.

After 9 months of looking into this case I've personally ruled out 3 suspects so far....
1. Duane Weber
2. Kenny Christiansen
3. Elvis Presley

Ruling out Christiansen is a no brainer. What are your reasons for ruling out Weber?

(By me asking that, please don't jump to the conclusion that I think that Weber may be Cooper....I do not. Just curious about your conclusions).

Are there any suspects you are intrigued by?

Mainly because I've read 3 encyclopedias worth of posts (from the only person who thinks he is Cooper) without any evidence of him ever being in a parachute, or in the area during the time of the crime.  Also, I have seen no evidence that he was even close to smart enough to come up with, let alone pull off, that kind of caper.  Not to mention he doesn't look anything at all like the sketch in my opinion.

As far as suspects that I think are intriguing.... Pederson (sp?) certainly looks like the sketch.  The father of the girl that posts here and dz(don't get mad if you read this.... can't think of your name at the moment....sorry...cheers) is curious to me.  I also thought Braden (I think that's the guy's name) seemed like a solid possibility.  Whatever became of that guy?

Braden is still a top-notch suspect, even if he is 5'8".  He's got the Cooper smirk in spades, plus the skills.  However, I don't think he's the guy, but I think that somebody like him is most likely Dan Cooper.

I find lots of flaws with all of the favorite suspects - Barb, Duane, McCoy, Peterson, Burnworth, Uncle LD, KC, and even List, who was touted here a few days ago.  I'm not a big fan of Gossett, either, even though he is reportedly still on the suspect list at Seattle FO. 

I think Dan Cooper is more from the shadows. If I had to make a bet I'd say someone from really secret ops in Vietnam - a super-trooper, elite commando guy - well trained, smart, fearless and able to keep his mouth shut.  Plus, he's got family and friends that don't need to blab about him.

In general, I feel that any suspect that has a cheering section or a family that wants him to be a skyjacker simply ain't Dan Cooper. That then begs the question of why so many folks want their brother, husband, uncle, etc to be Dan Cooper.  People like Lyle C want it bad, too.  That's a second mystery.  After all, 922 people confessed to being DB Cooper?  Whew! What gives, America????
