My point about the shoes is that this was not a skydiving event, it was a crime.

And absolutely no proof whatsoever that it was anything much more than a crime of opportunity.

If it had been as meticulously planned as some suggest, certainly he would have brought his own parachute. At the time there was no such thing as a bag inspection. It would have been trivial for him to carry it with him. Also, he would have worn appropriate footwear.

Can a skydive on a round parachute be made in the middle of the night without shoes? Sure. Would anybody in their right mind PLAN it that way? No. That's just silly.
