I may not be the best judge of character, but listening to the sister, and watching the McCoy kids tell their story on video, I'm convinced they are not colluding for cash, but simply getting the story off their chest with zero ulterior motive. All of the other "whataboutisms" can be easily dismissed. The hard evidence is first-hand testimony. Apparently, Gryder has an additional trove of "case closing" evidence that will be presented at some future date, and I trust he does. Case. Closed.

We'll see, Gryder was completely unaware of the extensive investigation the FBI did on McCoy, and how thoroughly they eliminated him as a suspect in the case back in '72. The results of their investigation are available on the FBI vault. The McCoy children have not presented any evidence, and nothing has been presented that wasn't already in the Calame and Rhodes book.

I would suggest searching Martin Andrade's previous posts on this topic. He does a marvelous job of using the FBI documents to prove that McCoy was no where near the Pacific Northwest on the date of the hijacking.

Gryder has studied this case for, what, 20 years? His doc film goes into great detail about the FBI investigation on McCoy, and reveals (1) the numerous errors made, (2) assumptions based on "facts" that were later debunked, and (3) flat out after-the-fact CYA.

The sister's new confession (2021) invalidates the FBI assertion. McCoy and his wife were not at home over Thanksgiving. The sister stayed with the kids as babysitter.

Unfortunately for Gryder, the FBI was able to prove McCoy was home on Thanksgiving. A non-relative put him at home at 10am on Thanksgiving, and forensic evidence proved McCoy signed a credit card receipt in Provo on Thanksgiving as well.

If Dan Gryder solved the case, how come no media picked up on it? Previous second hand confessions got a lot more attention. Why is it that none of the people who have extensive knowledge of the case agree with him? Why did Gryder lash out at his critics? What evidence did he present that wasn't in the book The Real McCoy? Why do you believe McCoy's kids, but not LD Cooper's niece or Walt Reca's neice or Duane Weber's widow or Jack Collins' son or Wolfgang Gossett's son or Ted Braden's stepchildren?

I was very aware of the doc before it came out, I had Gryder on my show and had lunch with him a few weeks before it came out. I was excited for it and I watched the live premiere. Hell, I'm even in it. Gryder promised me I'd be convinced he solved the case, and the entire DBC community would agree with him. I'm sure many others here have seen it. There are several people here that have over 10 years of documented involvement in the case and they don't believe Cooper and McCoy are the same person, but you watched one YouTube video and you're confident you know who DB Cooper was? Andrade1812 is the author of one of the best books on the case (Finding DB Cooper, you should probably read it) and is well respected among his peers. You shouldn't dismiss what his work.

I apologize for not being super friendly. Maybe if Gryder hadn't lashed out against me because I wouldn't publicly state he solved the case, I'd feel differently.
