FBI Still Looking For D.B. Cooper

Some 36 years after a man who called himself D.B. Cooper parachuted out of an airliner with a bag of $200,000 in stolen cash.

Now, the FBI has re-opened the case and issued a new picture of what he looked like, in hope that someone would come forward with new information.

“Diving into the wilderness without a plan, without the right equipment, in such terrible conditions, he probably never even got his chute open,” Carr said.

Still, the FBI would like to know for sure, and Carr thinks the public might be able to help.

“Maybe a hydrologist can use the latest technology to trace the $5,800 in ransom money found in 1980 to where Cooper landed upstream. Or maybe someone just remembers that odd uncle,” he said.

That's interesting... on the show "Journeyman" - they copied this plot. The summary below doesn't quite show the bit about the plane and the money, but if you've seen the episode, you will see the similiarity.

Pft!... $200,000.00 is peanuts nowadays. They should stop looking for him, 'cause we all know he died in one of the Prison Break episodes. :D
