I appreciated the clarity of the author and the facts used to make the case. It seems the FBI missed this one badly.
Of all of the Cooper suspects, only in the case of Christiansen:
Was a suspect known to have LOADS more money after the hijacking, than he did before it.
Did a Flight Attendant on that (in)famous flight, after viewing a photo of Christiansen, say that he looks more like D.B. Cooper than anyone else she has ever seen.
Was there found, right above his bedroom, a secret compartment, hidden where nobody else could find it.
Was the suspect a known paratrooper AND (disgruntled?) employee of THE AIRLINES THAT WAS HIJACKED (Northwest).
The case hasnt been conclusively solved, but Christiansen, based on the circumstantial evidence, is the most likely suspect.
And he looked like D.B. Cooper...only balder. However a woman who knew Christiansen said that he wore a toupee.
This book is a must read for anyone who loves a good true-life mystery, especially the mystery of D.B. Cooper.....one of the most fascinating mysteries ...ever.
P.S. The FBI says that Christiansen wasnt Cooper. However, the FBI had this man, Cooper, thumb his nose at them and get away with it...so they arent about to admit that the skyjacker got away with the crime and lived for decades, without the FBI being able to find him.
They want the world to think that Cooper died on impact.
Atleast in MY opinion, they do. And never say never...maybe he DID. The FBI enjoys relying exclusively on a DNA sample that may be irrelevant due to contamination (numerous people have touched the item where the DNA was extracted from)and as we have learned, even DNA evidence isnt always what it appears to be (definitive), although it is the most accurate evidence available today.
But it should never be the sole evidence in a case, but merely one piece of the puzzle.
Regardless...after reading this book you just may have no choice but to say.."S.O.B.,......he made it! He got away with it! He beat the system!"
While it is not definitive, it sure looks that way, thanks to the authors of this book, and the History Channel, who recently did an episode of the show "Brad Meltzer's Decoded" on Cooper and discovered new evidence, which seems to reinforce the theory that Christiansen and Cooper were one and the same.
But read the book and decide for yourself.
