In reply to:
Jo, I do not "poke" at you, you just take every question personally.

There are many "Wavy Greenes", but it is not my job to prove Weber is Cooper, it is my job to call into question things I see or think are wrong.

I also see no "revelation" in Duane's fraudulent enlistment to the Army. He got caught before he could do much, so if there is a record, and it survived the fires in the warehouse, it would be pretty thin. But I also think the Navy record, IMO, would be thin, but to you it may be in "great detail".

I hope last night you found the evidence that proves us all wrong, and is the true story.

I never said he couldn't be Cooper, just doubt he was, as I have not seen any direct evidence that makes the logical leap.

Matt

You avoid my question.
Was there a Wavy Greene with any spelling in the ARMY (1941 to 1945) that was only one digit off from Duane's Army serial number? I want to know WHY the FBI lied to me or if they actually made that kind of mistake.

The FBI KNEW the letter gave a month and day in 1943 and was addressed from Camp Siebert, Alabama. I provided the FBI the envelope this letter was mailed in around 2003 or 2004 (I am not certain of the date and I am not going to pull the old FBI receipt for the DNA I provided).

Attention Georger:
This was when the FBI was checking DNA. Wonder if the DNA that was pulled from that envelope had the KPD signals in the DNA. Something interesting to consider - you think?

Kenny's photo was probably f/8 being an old Brownie
620 fixed lens f/5.6-f/8 or Kodak 35mm shot at f/8.

That would explain why the scales in these photos is
roughly the same, except for the differences
Farflung noted.

Comments?

SmileGeorger,

It could have been a polaroid. Some of the photos I have of Duane from that time period were taken with a polaroid - and why the detail is NOT too great on certain photos. The 1970 or 1971 photo I used where I cut the wife out of the photo - was a polaroid shot.

If someone was going to do a picture that would show the subject presenting themselves as a suspect in a major crime, I seriously do NOT think they would have taken it into a local Drug Store to be developed.

Wasn't a Polaroid. I have the original. Just a standard print with the date printed on the front by the developer. Says 'Feb 72'. Christmas wreath says it was probably taken the previous December. And why would the picture be so damning? Just a guy walking into an apartment holding a briefcase and a white paper bag...

Re: [mrshutter45] Facial Expressions [In reply to] Can't Post

In reply to:
the guy on the left does not look like kenny IMO
the guy in the center is JFK Cool

Yea, that is Kenny and he not only has a receding hair line - he is bald on top and into the back.

Note his lower lip - when he smiles or even if he frowned that lower lip and chin goes forward. To much so to be Cooper. Since I happen to know about an expression Cooper made during the skyjacking (told to the composite artist) and might not be in the official records. This artist talked to the witness and tried to make them comfortable and engaged them in conversation. One of the witnesses was very adamant about an expression Cooper made. Before Doug Pasternack could tell me what it was -I STOPPED him and told him what the expression or motion was.

This was ONE of those moments when I knew something about Cooper that had NOT been MADE public. Doug NOR I will EVER forget that phone call. This action was one Duane used when ever he wanted to drive his point home. The expression is NOT one commonly used in the same manner as Cooper used it...Weber had a little quirk about this expression which made it a little different than someone else making the same jester or expression of displeasure or irritation.

NOW WATCH Blevins and others USE this regarding their subjects..

P.S. I compose my posts on line and do not read below the post I am addressing. When I posted the above statements I then read the post Mrsshutter had written. I will assure all of you from what the artist stated there was no bite problem with Cooper, but he was expressive with a part of his anatomy.

Would you consider it possible that it is actually a small "suitcase" and that KC is just returning from a working trip for NWA? Maybe he dropped his purser's uniform off at a dry cleaners between SEA and his apartment.

I don't presume to know the meaning of the picture, or where the heck Kenny was before it was taken. We certainly don't think the bag and the briefcase were the ones used in the hijacking. (I get asked that a lot, LOL) This is all we really know for sure on it:

It was taken before Feb 72 in the doorway of apartment J-3, at the Rainier View Apartments in Sumner, WA.

Date stamp on the pic says 'Feb 72,' but there is a Christmas wreath on the door.

Rental record on Christiansen for this place is incomplete, but we know two things. He wasn't there before June of 1970 and not there after July of 1972. The other is that he lived there alone.

Since these apartments are single-level, and J-3 is only two doors down from the manager's apartment, we don't think Kenny sneaked in a roommate. Also, the office area in the manager's apartment extends out a bit from the main building and there are windows. This means the manager could just look out his windows and see anyone coming and going from J-3 easily.

Unless he used a timer, the picture was taken by someone else.

The print is 'square' with a white border, not rectangular. Most versions I published are cropped at the side. In the chair on Kenny's left, there is a newspaper. (Less-cropped version attached below. For the completely uncropped, I will have to re-scan the image. Only thing not showing is more of the blinds on both sides. There is a window on both sides of the door.)

He isn't smiling in the picture, except for a little 'Mona Lisa' smile. In any event, if it isn't a self-portrait, then I think he knew the person taking it.

It looks like he might be wearing TWO shirts, as well as the coat. Look at his left wrist and notice the tan-colored sleeve. But the coat looks unbuttoned, with a darker shirt beneath.

The white bag has what looks like two red, or dark-colored lines across it near the bottom.

He isn't holding a set of keys that can be seen, although the way he's holding the bag, the keys could be in his right hand. (Kenny was left-handed)

The picture was found several years after Kenny's death behind another picture in one of his old photo albums.

Re: [mrshutter45] Who said What! [In reply to] Can't Post

I think Mrshutte45 is correct about the ‘Flight Bag’. It has been identified in the past on this quality thread, as a standard cosmetics sample bag (as if) to an ordinary brief case. You can always count on the DBC thread to supply accuracy and sane input. Then silence on the subject.

We always carried at least one or two of such ‘bags’ (each) on every flight. Think about all the SIDs and approach plates for the US along with the low and high instrument charts. Yep, they were packed in their like sardines too. Not like the virtually empty example with Clint.

Those bags also contained the operating manuals for the aircraft which were in volumes in those funky binders that had a pull pin that kept them bound. When we would be waiting on the ramp for transportation, they would become seats also.

The briefcase used by DB Cooper was described as nothing like this type of case. But you must remember that identifying briefcases are more difficult in an aircraft then they are out in the open. Unless the person has hairy arms, then he isn’t DB Cooper. Ever.

hard to say, the door seems to have aready been open, he would have had to put something down or juggle things and this would have been caught as he came thru the door if it was closed and as Robert said he has no keys? he is just crossing the threshold when the pic was snapped Cool

remember this just happened if the date is correct so I'm sure this was the subject of discussion for some time, room for a joke or two.....

Dirty Harry Arms [In reply to] Can't Post

OK, because I care too much; I’ve decided to make the ‘hairy arm’ controversy scientific. This subject has been brought up too many times to be of trivial or passing interest and must be defined for the better of all mankind.

With my usual care and precise approach, a measure of arm hairyness now exists. It’s a non-linear scale because it’s scientific as are all legitimate scales, look it up yourselves. The scale covers every living thing on Earth, thus excluding nothing. It is called the Hairy Arm or HA Index and should be used to identify legitimate DB Cooper suspects and conversely exclude any posers who pollute the air with their rancid appearances.

According to unknown documents, Cooper did not have arms which exceeded a level of HA-2.98 to HA-3.141592653 at the very most, lest we go round in circles. Arm hairyness has been overlooked too long and must be embraced by the entire cadre of quality Cooper researchers. Once again, you’re welcome.

Hairy Arms and Flight Cases [In reply to] Can't Post

I really think you guys do NOT have anything better to do lately.

Flight case verse Brief Case. All of this was well documented hundreds of pages ago. Why undertake it again?

We all agreed the case was NOT a brief case - and it was decided it might be too wide for a Pilots flight case, but it didn't make any difference. It was not a briefcase - and Cooper was carrying a briefcase. Hence the picture is a joke.

We have already discussed the white plastic bag Kenny had in his hands - definite not a white bank bag. Therefore I do not understand why you guys continue to haggle over this with Blevins.

Have any of U guys got wives or girlfriends? Why are U guys so involved in the pros and cons of Kenny versus any other suspect?

Lyle has a pair boots and an old briefcase - he is taking with him to some kind of writers forum. He now claims Kenny had a scar on his left hand and that Kenny communicated with Max Gunther and the story was based on what Kenny told Max. Claimed Kenny could make his voice sound like a woman.

Does any of this sound familiar?

1,
Duane had a scar on his left hand - verified by his San Quentin and Folsom record.

2.
Jo Weber communicated with Max Gunther about "his" Clara.

3.
Max and Jo had long conversations and exchanged several written communications.

4.
Max listened to a tape of someone from Duane past. Max stated that he felt sure his Clara and the woman on the tape were one and the same.

5.
Clara and the mystery lady - made the very same expressions - and actually spelled certain expressions out in a letter to Max and the other in a letter to Jo. It was coy remarks!

6.
Clara and the mystery lady both seemed to enjoy having a few too many before engaging in a conversation about Cooper.

7.
Clara and the mystery lady both liked the late evening hours to talk.

8.
Himmelsbach promoted the whitesh bank bag story

9.
The co-pilot insisted the money was in a different kind of bag.

10.
In a conversation Jo had with Mr. H. He told her a satchel she had in her possession was NOT the bag the money was in and of no significance.

11. Several yrs later Jo would become aware of the co-pilots claim regarding the bag the money went out of the plane in. It did NOT go out of that plane in a whitish Bank bag, but another bag closely resembling a flight satchel.

12. Jo had reported seeing a whitish bank bag in her husband van in 1990 with the name of a WA bank on it...but no one believed her.

13. The bank bag was put into a satchel - and why the bank bag was so pristine.

Well, since 13 is supposed to be a bad number I will stop on 13. My luck couldn't get any worse as it is.

Oh what the Hell:

14. NOTE the first leads on the case came out of Jefferson! Agent reports have been lost by the FBI! Good excuse for not solving the case.

15. Duane was in that prison under the name of John and not Duane. Collins and not Weber. The prison had NO record for Duane L. Weber when I contacted them, but it was a yes on John Collins.

16. When I sent someone to the prison to obtain the records they received a different story.

17. John Collins received a commutation of sentence - not Duane L. Weber. Only when CARR came to this thread (YEARS LATER) was I allowed to access the Jefferson file after the actual file of paper work was destroyed.

18. The computer report provide minimal information and connects Weber with Collins.

19. Jo and 2 other parties were told Weber WAS never in Jefferson. Why wait until the back-up papers were destroyed before admitting Weber was in Jefferson?

20. Now that is a story conspiracies are made of! Why I ever even thought "conspiracy" in the first place and in enters BK with his amazing story.

21. Jo was not stupid so she played along just to see if there was any sustance to BK's story or The more he talked and the more "bait" she fed him the bigger his story got. The bait was loaded with laxatives.



What a RIDE this has been!
One moment I am a widow of a 17 yrs marriage and 14 months later - my world turns upside down - all because of ONE damn book.....

What could I have done with the last 18 yrs of my life had it not been for a book D.B. Cooper:
What Really Happened
?

Whatever it was - would probably have been more productive and profitable. As it is my real estate career took a big hit in a negative way regarding going public. It was also very hard on my marriage to a very wonderful man who deserved more from me than he got.

Now my health is failing and it is time to make the plunge just as Cooper did on Nov. 24th. !

Interesting thought. Do the skydivers at DZ think they could figure out how to make Weber's ashes arrive by chute on the FBI's doorstep in Seattle. If this saga is going to end perhaps sensationalism is the way to go.

You could have done lots of things Jo. Your decision to make this DW=DBC pursuit a full time endeavor rather than a part time one is a choice you made. There is still time left to take a vacation from this maelstrom. The question is: can you wean yourself from the Cooper stuff for even a few weeks? I hope you can.

You equate FBI screw ups and errors with a coverup. I think they are less sinister with regard to Duane. They'd love to solve Norjack. I know you disagree.

I witnessed plenty of FBI errors when I was doing criminal defense. It's an inevitable part of police work. They get some things wrong. It doesn't always mean a coverup.

Perhaps I did NOT make myself clear - did I say it was a cover-up? I simply told the story about how I handled the BK thing.

The FBI has definitely made some mistakes regarding Weber and yes, it is a cover-up unless they knowledge these mistake to the public. The mistakes are VERIFIABLE! Yet, the FBI takes it's good old time admitting the mistakes made. To continue to cover ups mistakes is NOT justice...and NOT what this country is supposed to stand for.

UnsureCoolSmileRight now I do not know who I will be voting for in NOV. Perhaps I should write in D.B.Cooper and Duane L. Weber. Skyjacker for president and ex-con for vice president....makes about as much sense as voting for either candidate.

AARP is making an unjust stand against one candidate - I just think that is wrong. This is a senior organization and it is senior dollars that support them.

Any statements by AARP should be unbiased and neutral, plus the information they sent to my door was inaccurate - I was mad as hell with AARP and to think I have my supplement and drug program with them - now they use my money for propaganda against one candiate. Neutral should be their stand and not to bash the other candidate with information that is NOT correctly stated.

This is getting to be the nastiest election ever on record!

Yea, I know - keep politics out of the thread. I really do NOT know who I am going to vote for but for AARP to support one candiate over the other made me SICK when they did it with probaganda and distorted facts.

But here goes again. There are many on the lists I found, you can look at your lists, they are on the internet, just type it in with the service number. I did not run all of them down, not my job, that is yours.

Then do the same for Duane, I did, he didn't show up.

Re: [skyjack71] Hairy Arms and Flight Cases [In reply to] Can't Post

Skyjack71 says with a detached sense of self:

I really think you guys do NOT have anything better to do lately.”

That’s a true statement, because I comment between breaks from yard work, vehicle maintenance and an infinitely long list of honeydews.

Slyjack71 continues with:

Flight case verse Brief Case. All of this was well documented hundreds of pages ago. Why undertake it again?

Perhaps you could explain the multiple discussions of an electronic back brace which can receive navigation signals and who brought that up multiple times.

Slyjack71 rolls on to induce another error into the thread with:

We have already discussed the white plastic bag Kenny had in his hands - definite not a white bank bag.”

Correct on it not being a white bank bag but it is clearly a PAPER bag in his hands and NOT plastic. This is what makes subjects reappear and be discussed over and over. Please don’t add to the lore with these data errors, there are already enough, we don’t need any more.

Skyjack71 finally asks a question that only a woman is capable of crafting with:

Have any of U guys got wives or girlfriends? Why are U guys so involved in the pros and cons of Kenny versus any other suspect?”

Reference my first answer with the breaks between yard work and honeydews. Why do you think we seek refuge and solace on a computer for a few minutes here and there? Because if we just sit down and gaze into the horizon, appearing to be ‘doing nothing’ (in womanese) it strikes anger in the female’s heart, and they must create a new activity for men, since they apparently view themselves as some sort of little manager or supervisor of our already shorter life spans. Are you starting to dial this in? The very fact that we hack out some repeated response to some brain dead theory, is in and of itself, proof that we have girlfriends and or wives. Is this really this hard? Secondly, the passive aggressive syntax is not a foreign language or code speak like Esperanto to us men, we understand it just fine, we simply and universally don’t chat about it, because we realize we are a defeated species and on our best days we pray to receive ‘less punishment’. We aren’t so stupid to see a non-sequitur asking about girlfriends, followed by an admonishment about only talking about Kenny; you want us (with or without wives or girlfriends) to talk exclusively about Duane. See, we really do understand your weird and freaky language. But while I’m on a computer, I can feign searching for the perfect ‘anniversary gift’, avoid a new project in the yard and let my brain go flat line and rest while I appear to be living, in spite of repeating some crap about a dufus suspect which no one believes for a second is Cooper.

There you have it Skyjack71; I hope this response is all that you hoped it would be. Some of us are simply looking for a distraction and some relief from the very thing you brought up with your self-absorbed comments, why aren’t we doing what YOU want. Because we are already avoiding doing something that someone else wants (wives and girlfriends) us to do. Is this 100% clear now?

“I really think you guys do NOT have anything better to do lately” – A Closet Lumbergh [In reply to] Can't Post

Farflung’s Sunday:

A: Cut lawn, edge, weed and apply fall fertilizer stakes to trees.

B: Replace battery on motorcycle.

C: Read the instructions on battery replacement AFTER dropping 26 lb unit into container.

(Take a break to cool off physically and mentally on computer)

D: Attempt a power lift of 26 lb battery using only sweaty finger tips resulting in failure.

E: Pull weeds in side yard.

(Cool off in front of computer for 15 minutes)

F: Prune trees, bushes and avoid heat stroke, allow tears to invisibly mix with sweat.

(Drink four pints of water in front of computer while answering- yeeessssss, to all shouted questions)

G: Finally removed battery from motorcycle, made modifications, installed new unit and ops checked.

H: Replaced three low voltage light bulbs in the front yard.

(Getting tired, strength fading fast, but can type unmolested on computer for….. yeeeeessssss)

I: Filled spare tire with air, even though it was known to be flat for weeks, foolishly looked un-busy while on computer.

J: Randomly moved objects in garage with occasional use of power tools while secretly drinking a cool, sweet beer. (This was added as a task since women won’t allow silent beer drinking, thus making this closer to work, look it up.)

(Went to bed knowing full well that another week of the same shameful activities await and fantasize about heart failure in my sleep)

Monday 8:00 AM: Read Skyjack71’s post about how little men accomplish on the thread.

As you can see, out of the entire day, I managed to squeak out about 45 minutes to an hour on the computer. Yet in spite of my heroic, albeit futile, attempts to avoid having even more of my day off consumed with drudgery; there was the addition of a cyber task to discuss Duane more, while being brow beat for having nothing to do. No man on Earth is a stranger to these apex insults, which are crafted by those who typically spend their days engaged in doing…… whatever, because men can live and let live, without skulking around the homestead being some sort of discontented, spontaneous task master.

So if you see some massive void in my Sunday which needed to be filled Skyjack71 with your superior and urgent activities, perhaps you could suggest a schedule modification. Yeaaaaaah, that would be….. greaaaaaaaaat.

I guess we all have mini-Lumberghs in our lives to contend with, but in cyber space too?
