New D.B. Cooper Theory

Saturday's first hour guest, attorney Galen Cook briefly commented on new research examining D.B. Cooper's loot. Three bundles of $20 bills (about $5,800) that were part of the original 1971 ransom were found along the banks of the Columbia River in 1980, Cook explained.

A recent KGW-TV report followed paleontologist Tom Kaye as he set out to examine how this money could have made it down the Columbia River to where it was eventually discovered. Kaye contacted the company that made the rubber bands which wrapped the Cooper loot and was told they would have held together no more than 4 months in the wild.

Cook said this finding supports his theory that someone purposely planted the money hoping it would be discovered later. Cook also pointed out that this would likely mean that D.B. Cooper survived his parachute jump, a view not held by the FBI.
