really nice job, Bruce.  Of course, the good stuff I'm not going to release right now.  That is confidential and closely held.  The FBI knows some of it and they aren't talking about Gossett either.  Sorry Sailshaw, but your guy was not DB Cooper.

Sail, I give you the too short, but too young?  He was 41 in 1971.

As for the skills to be DB Cooper, I guess that will have to wait for Galen's book. Knowing how to jump a 727 was highly specialized and secret, and Sheridan Peterson sure seems capable of knowing that stuff through his technical work at Boeing.

I don't think that Wolfie is the skyjacker.  As Clyde Lewis told me, "Wolfgang was the biggest bullshit artist I have ever met."

To Coopsnoop:  You say: "really nice job, Bruce.  Of course, the good stuff I'm not going to release right now.  That is confidential and closely held.  The FBI knows some of it and they aren't talking about Gossett either. Sorry Sailshaw, but your guy was not DB Cooper."

I say:  "Why do you rule out Sheridan Peterson?"  What about him does not fit, is it his "Perfect Alibi" about being in Nepal? Your answer may lead us to  possibly why the FBI ruled him out and that is why the crime is not solved in 43 years.

Sailshaw, Bruce tells me that you are a really nice gentleman.  And you seem like it.  Bruce has his opinion and I respect Bruce's opinion too.  I only have this comment right now.  There was only ONE DB Cooper.  Others no longer have to be "ruled in" or "ruled-out."  There was only ONE.

Coopsnoop,
Regarding Gossett -- In Geoff's book, he said that Carr was looking for DNA to match with a suspect in Utah. Was the Gossett?  There was some speculation it was McCoy.

I know you don't want to leak much, but can you answer that?  Kind of goes to how the FBI regards Gossett.

Mark:

To be honest, I'm not sure who Carr was referring to. It could have been either one.  Eng has had the case longer than Carr.  Eng told me that the use of DNA "will not" solve this case.  He told me the reasons too, and they were plausible explanations.  The FBI "will not" tell me of the outcome of Gossett's prints, which I submitted in 2008.  There is a reason for this too.  Carr called me at my office in early 2008 and begged me for Gossett's prints.  I guess you can read between the lines.  But there are other ways to solve the DB Cooper case besides DNA and prints.  And the FBI continues to be interested in those other approaches.

I say: " Why do you continue with a poor suspect (too short, etc) and not open your eyes to the "Best Suspect" (Sheridan Peterson) who fits all the requirements and worked at Boeing in the "Manual and Handbooks Group" just to find out about the 727 and how it could be juimped. He  even started the Boeing Skydiving Club and jumped at the Issaquah Sky Sports DZ and knew Earl Cossey the rigger. He even got particles on the tie he left onboard the skyjacked 727 of both types of Titanium (Pure and Alloy) from looking into the scrap bins of the lab just below his office in the 9-101 building. Boeing was the only place in the North West where both types of Titanium were being used. I know because my office was also on the second floor of the 9-101 building. I also did some work in the M & P Lab with flame spraying which was being expermited with to flame spray pure titanium on leading edges of the SST. Pure titanium had better temperature and abrasion characteristics than the aloy titanium that the SST was made. The FBI thinks they have good DNA from the tie clasp, but it is most likely from someone else (helping to put the tie on) and not DB Coopers. The real DNA that the FBI needs to look at and compare with what they have of Sheridan's is under the stamps/envelope flaps of the four letters sent to the news papers following Norjak.
You are following the wrong suspect!

Sheridan's Google+ page. He references his "work' and his "story".   :D

Coopsnoop   You say:  "Good luck with your investigation, Sailshaw."

I say:   "You Coopsnoop are in the best position to break the case wide open as you are on a good talking basis with the Seattle FBI office and they are presently stuck on stop. Possibly, from dunb orders from above, but it is hindering the easy solution of the DB Cooper case. If you could talk the Seattle FBI into obtaining the DNA from under the stamps/envelope flaps of the four letters that they have  that were ssent to the newspapers following Norjak, and then compare that DNA with what was obtained from Sheridan Peterson by the two female FBI agents, the case could be broken. A match would prove that Sheridan was in Portland (the scene of the crime) and not in Nepal as Sheridan's perfect alibi goes. The FBI would have Sheridan in a lie to Fed's which is a Federal Crime and that alone could be traded for a confession to the DB case. Sorry for the rambling thoughts but I think you get the idea. You could be the hero for getting the FBI moving on the case and to a quick solution.

CoopSnoop:

The question posed by Bill Mitchell who sat in the same isle as DB, he has a Turkey Chin. So, if you look at the attached photo of Sheridan's chin you will see that he has excess skin under his chin and it laps over his shirt collar.

This morning...MSN.com and other news sources are telling the following story about NamUs and the missing/unidentified remains.

In May 1986, loggers clear-cutting an isolated section of Portland discovered the skeletal remains of a man who had been dead for at least a half-century. Marvin Clark went missing on Halloween weekend, 1926.

My point being...skeletal remains were intact after 60 years in the Pacific Northwest. There may be hope in finding the "Cooper" remains.

"I don't like the word closure, I kind of think resolution," said Janet Franson, a regional NamUs administrator whose territory includes Oregon.

I Say:   "Too bad you would like to think that DB died in the jump. Actually, my suspect Sheridan Peterson made it safely as he was a Skydiving Instructor/ Smoke Jumper  with years of experience and ability to survive and walk out from anywhere. He is alive and living in California today and almost 90 years old. Hopefully, he will write part 2 of his book and it will tell us how it was done. Note that none of the other skydivers from skyjacked planes died in the jump as it was a cake-walk for an experienced skydiver."

Bob,

I understand that you believe Sheridan Peterson was the hijacker. However, until the case is solved, Cooper either lived or he died. Why not explore all the possibilities?

I don't think it's that hard to go missing after all these years. based on such a large area of where "they think" he jumped, anything is possible at this point. Amazon likes to believe that every inch of Washington has been hiked. If he landed in brush away from the search area. there is no telling what happened from that point on. the further the time frame goes on the jump time. the closer the water hazards appear.

I want to believe he made it, but I just don't think he did. I could be wrong, but I haven't seen anything convince me of anything different. circumstantial evidence can't bring the dead back.
