    Fascinating story

    I've never heard about the challenges to the FBI that it mentions. Isn't the most likely theory that he didn't survive the parachute?

    No body found, no cash recovered. I think deeper conspiracy is the most likely theory.

    They did find some cash. Just under 6k.

    And a deeper conspiracy is the least likely explanation.

    They also said the money he stole never entered circulation, so i doubt it was that guy and was infact someone else, who died in the dense forests.

    Remember catch me if you can? Perfect example of how to make the best use of a criminals talents. If I were the FBI I’d want DB cooper on my side.

    No reason why he could not if he was SF trained. Fairly easy I'd say.

    With zero relevance to the DB Cooper case which was actually real.

    Sure. Very risky jump dressed as he was and in the bad conditions but it is possible that he survived.
