I would hope so but I do think its pretty late in the game for them to be still alive?  They did not shoot the letter down so they are at least considering it could have been from Clarence Anglin.  If he was terminal, it may be too late?  The FBI only needs to say, we grant immunity if you are by some chance alive.  And bring DB Cooper with you while your at it.  I really cant see 3 men in as good a shape as they were all drowning.  That swim has been made many times.  Its do able and if your freedom depends on it, hell I might just be able to get to the other shore.  I believe they made it.

It's possible they made it. the prison was considered "escape proof" the FBI had to believe they didn't make it so the egg on the face didn't get any worse than what it was.

The missing heavy gauge cord off the dock and the story of them tying a rope to rudders for rides as kids was interesting. imagine escaping off the island using the boat that brought you there  :rofl:

The problem I see now is the lack of anymore news. the belief of a family member murdered by the prison caused me to scratch my head because they seem to believe what ever is told to them..at least one body was seen in the bay. don't know if we will have an ending to this one or not?

CooperCon 2021

Former FBI SA Mary Jean Fryar from The Final Hunt for DB Cooper (2020) on History Channel has confirmed to speak as well.

Shutter, perhaps you can establish a separate thread for CC21 for all the updates and info.

Georger, of course you can post links from the DZ or from anywhere else. you seem to be missing the point. you attack nearly every post made here that's insulting to the person who made the post. often, it stops them from posting further comments.

Several have spoken out in your defense because they believe you do have knowledge that benefits all involved. on the other hand lots have voiced out against you due to your behavior. that's where I step in to try and get you to focus on the knowledge vs poking fun at every comment. I believe the term is "bully" I'm not forcing you to do anything but to work with this board.

We are not here for your approval. we are here to discuss the DB Cooper case.

Bullying is not my style or purpose. On the other hand two here are bullying people constantly and have for years - there have been complaints about that also! One example is today, again.

"I really don't understand the need for some to troll. It must be a jealousy thing. Frankly I could care less what TrollJack has to say. What has he contributed to the case other then theories such as: "  (EU)

You know the author. 

The post above is pure intimidation and most people don't like it. Some dont agree with EU's assessment!

If all we are discussing here are theories, then what is the need for INTIMIDATION by anyone ?  This forum is not just a HOBBY for some. This forum is deadly serious social competition with financial outcome at stake for at least one, possibly two. Its an un-even playing field Shutter. Most posters here dont even look at this forum in those terms which includes me! Fairness is as "fairness" does.

NOTE TO GEORGER:

If you consider it bullying to push back against someone who I have completely ignored but has made a cottage industry out of trolling me and apparently just called me a liar yet again, then I suppose I am guilty as charged.

That said, it is laughable for you to act as if you're some kind of a victim. Your reputation here on this forum precedes you.

GEORGER, a victim. Nice.

Well ........... we now find ourselves in the Cooper World where people (like Ingram) are charging/getting paid for their appearances in Cooper productions. That changes the whole Cooper equation, as a general fact, and it changes forum dynamics. Testimony in the Cooper case may now have a $ fee $ attached.  That's brand new. People are talking about this in the background. You asked me EU, what I had against 'people making money'! My answer is: my Cooper services are not for sale! 

Ingram said this or that. Gray said this or that. Some un-named TV producer said this ........... all theories? Nothing specific given! All theory?

Flyjack commented over at DZ about people 'leveraging' their Cooper work. I think its a real concern, and a fact of the Cooper world today, both on and off this forum or any forum. Cooper theories are as Cooper theories DO !

So dont preach to me Mr. Ulis. Please no COOPER CARD COUNTING HERE!   :nono: 

Why are most people here? Hobby. Financial gain? Social gain? .................. that's what people are discussing in the background and as Tom Kaye just said to me over the phone: "Georger! Its Cooper world. What do you expect!' Tom and I laughed. 

 :rofl:

Economics 101: You first need to offer something of value before someone is willing to pay you for it.

In America, if I have something of value (definition above) and decide to capitalize off of it, well that's called capitalism. If you don't like capitalism then that's your problem.

Unreal. The audacity to smear people like Brian, Gray or me simply because we offer something of value and accept someone's offer of purchase. Especially considering I have made my book available FREE of charge to many, yourself included.

No! This is NOT economics 101. This is a DB Cooper FREE FORUM. Nobody pays or gets charged for ANYTHING HERE.

That has been the practice in DB Cooper World for decades. At every free forum. Otherwise it is anarchy and innuendo and lies.

So, I got a weird facebook friend request over the weekend: Norman DeWinter.

If that name sounds familiar it should. According to Colbert, that's the name Rackstraw used when posing as a rich baron shortly before assuming the role of Dan Cooper.

Anyone else get the same request?
