No one by the name of  DB Cooper ever hijacked a plane or was accused of hijacking a plane. The name of the hijacker was DAN Cooper. DB Cooper was a misprint by one reporter.

Absolutely true, but up here in Sasquatch country, DB Cooper is practically a folk hero, misnamed or not.

He probably packed the chute of the REAL Sandy Hook marathon hijacker, that's why FEMA offed him.  That sort of thing is against Sharia law.

Which is why they needed the chutes to bail out of the empty planes before they hit the towers and the Pentagon.

A tin foil parachute is called chaff.

That didn't keep Cossey from having fun at the expense of reporters who covered that discovery. He told some who happened to call him on April Fools' Day that year that the chute was, in fact, Cooper's.

Sounds like a fun guy.

Was Jimmy Hoffa's body found next to the parachute packer?

Have you told the FBI? They have spent the last 45 years looking for the wrong guy. "I was sure we had him this time, everything match but his name is DAN not DB."

"Sheriff's officials would not release the victim's name, but property records
show the house is owned by 74-year-old Earl Cossey."

So maybe the deceased isn't Earl Cossey.

"They keep bringing me garbage," Cossey told The Associated Press in 2008, after the FBI brought him a silk parachute discovered by children.... "Every time they find squat, they bring it out and open their trunk and say, 'Is that it?' and I say, 'Nope, go away.' Then a few years later they come back."

Love this.  Chute packer has a sense of humor and problem with authority.

Using whitepages I found there is an Earl and a Frank listed at the same address. So the victim is probably Earl unless Frank is his brother and not his son.

My deductive reasoning points to the reporter who is short on humor but long on memory. Reporters hate to be pranked.

Saw a car on the highway that had the words "Long live DB Cooper" on the back. That was a few weeks ago. He should have had time to make it from New England to Washington by then.

IT'S A FACIAL TISSUE NOT A KLEEN-EX!

1-What's the latest on Dan Cooper?
2-Who the Fark is Dan Cooper?
1-You know, the only successful plane hijacker that got away with the money.
2-You mean DB Cooper?  Cause I never heard of no DAN anyone.

You may or may not have it right but sometimes, you gotta learn to go with the flow . . .

Article says the guy suffered "head trauma", but if by that you mean "got his blown off with a 12 ga.", then you may be right.

The body is that of Mr. Cooper.  It is obvious that he hit his head when he exited the plane and it has take him this long to make it to his friend's house, where he died of his wounds.

Cool story bro:

Mr. Cossey taught one of my elective classes back in 7th grade.....and he was my younger brother's math teacher a couple of years later.  Very sad.....he was one of the best at that school.

Twin Peaks was set in Washington.  The lead character was also named Cooper.

Do I need to connect the dots? David Lynch has been employed by the CIA and the Illuminati since the 1980s; his 'art' has been warping our minds for 30 years.

Wake up, sheeple!

Also, water is wet, the sky is blue, and Richard Nixon may not have been wholly forthcoming about his role in Watergate. Which is actually the name of a DC hotel, apparently.
