How do you decode something that really doesn't have a code?

Quote:
“And please tell the lackey cops” was decoded to mean “I am 1st LT Robert Rackstraw,”
I'd like to hear that explained...

Still interesting though...

Kind of looks similar to picture in Post $15...

I hope, if it is him...he takes the truth to his grave. It'd drive the fuckers nuts for years to come...

The perfect scenario, if in fact Cooper didn't make it after jumping from the plane, would be for somebody to find a bunch more of the money somewhere near where the other money was found many years ago, only this time they find skeletal remains (not enough to get a positive ID) and the remnants of a parachute rig.

That way, we'd know the outcome (maybe ) without ever learning his identity.

I really don't want to find out definitively who this guy is/was at this point.

Epithelial cells would probably result in a negative..a person as thorough as D.B. Cooper would have had his DNA surgically removed in Mexico before the flight...

Of he was so farsighted that he switched himself at birth, in the hospital.

Several times.

Although with the brave new world of discovering who somebody is by familial matches on genealogical websites like Ancestry, 23andMe, etc., they'd eventually track down an individual eventually. Although if he was a human chimera, that might be enough to muddy the waters.

After they finally catch DB Cooper they can start chasing the guy that shot Tupac and Biggie

This would be a good discussion in the medical thread. I am interested in learning more about this.

Imagine their surprise when they discover that D.B. Cooper was responsible for that, too.

Its actually pretty well established who shot Tupac, Orlando Anderson. He was killed in an unrelated shooting a short time later. Biggie is much more of an actual mystery although there are multiple stories about it.

He then headed back over to Thailand, where he settled down, married a Thai lady and used his Hijacked money to start up and small bar/restaurant in the sleepy little village of Kanchanaburi, then later moved on down to Song Khla.
Billy Waugh in the center of that photo. Let's just say it wouldn't surprise me if Billy was involved....LOL

Putting Tupac and BIG in the same thread as D.B. Cooper is an insult to D.B. Cooper.
