Re: [skyjack71] ANGLE OF THE DANGLE [In reply to] Can't Post

Jo, I don't have "tunnel vision" I have common sense, what do you think the odds are of someone having information about two major unsolved mysteries?

asking someone "how is zona" hardly brings light to Clarence Anglin, Clarence had more than one scar and two tattoo's, why didn't he ask how Nita was?

the other file is a PDF file, don't know if you can open that? if nobody can see it, I can transfer it to photo?

"Some of those artist things are WAY off when the real guy is found. " but seems to work for you? profile pic??????

I gave it to you straight. You're not telling me anything that I don't get a few times a week via email. If you author a Cooper book, two things will happen, Meyer. Nuts will come out of the woodwork, and some people won't like what you say. I know you are not a nut because I met you. So you are behind Door Number Two.

That's just the way it is. You've had your opinion and I listened to it. Now unless there is anything else, perhaps we can get back to Cooper and out of the personal analysis room.

And I still don't like seeing Kanye West in a leather skirt. Unimpressed

_________________________________________________

Emergency alert! Emergency alert, DZ members. There has been significant movement on the R.B.I.M. -- Robert Blevins Idiot Meter. In case you didn't know, the meter is on a logarithmic scale. When the meter goes up a notch, that means what Blevins just said is ten times more ridiculous than what he said in his previous post.

What drives this man? What is his motto, his blueprint for living in the real world? Someone told me they overheard Blevins say "I calls 'em as I sees 'em, and if I don't sees 'em, I makes 'em up!" Proper grammar and goof senses seemed to have taken leave of the assistant publisher.

Also, friends have encouraged Blevins --
Connoisseur of the Unfounded -- to seek counseling, maybe even join a 12-step program. There is 12-step program for people who talk way too much -- it's called On-and-On Anon, but Blevins doesn't seem to be all that interested.

One time when Blevins got down in the dumps, someone overheard him complaining,
"I don't understand it, everybody hates me!"
His friend replied (yeah, Blevins actually has a friend): "Don't be stupid, Blevins. Everybody hasn't met you yet!"

That seemed to cheer him up a bit. Respect from others seems to be hard to come by for Robert Blevins. I heard one time he got set up with a blind date. He was supposed to meet her at the mall. When he thought he saw her, he went up to her and asked, "Are you Judy?"
She said, "Are you Robert?"
He said, "Yes."
She said, "Well then, I'm not Judy."
Now you know that's cold ... that's harsh. Blevins gets no respect.....

Rumor has it that Blevins finally broke down and went to see a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist told Blevins he was crazy, Blevins retorted, "I don't believe it, I want a second opinion!"
"Okay, you're ugly too," replied the doctor (I couldn't resist this Henny Youngman classic).

I guess things went from bad to worse. I heard Blevins got so far down in the dumps he told the doctor he thought he might have suicidal tendencies.
"Oh yeah," replied the doctor. "From now on, you pay in advance!"

So goes the escapades of the one and only Robert Blevins.... Take it away Grand Maestro Peepee.

Thanks Mr. Shutter. It's a plausible report as to the scant body detail observed. Nothing more than a body with white trousers.

What isn't plausible is the no US radio channel story. EVERY commercial ship had the international distress freq of 2182 KHz. Larger ones had in addition another international distress freq of 500 KHz. Their position at the time of the body sighting was within a few miles of USCG radio station NMC at Pt. Reyes which monitored both freqs 24/7/365. Other commercial shore stations such as KLH, KMI and KPH all had receive antennas in that area and all monitored at least 2182. KPH also monitored 500 KHz. I'm not buying the radio story told to the FBI.

I agree with 377 on this one. The hunt for these guys was extremely intense, and the end result when they didn't find them was the closure of Alcatraz. If this story were true, the FBI would have historically turned every rock to find out and it would have been a part of the public knowledge on the hunt itself. Without further proof, it has to be relegated to Urban Legend.

You also have to wonder why the only available evidence was discovered on Angel Island. Not washed out to sea, not washed up along any shoreline in the SF Bay, or even out on the coast. Occam might say that's because Angel Island was the goal all along.

Couple of quick Wiki excerpts:

Quote:
'Remnants of the raft, paddles, and a bag containing the Anglins' personal effects were found on Angel Island. According to the FBI, while it was theoretically possible for the three inmates to have reached Angel Island, the cold water temperature and direction of the ocean's tides made this unlikely...'

Okay, more than one item ends up in the same spot. Yet the FBI claims the direction of the tides makes this unlikely. As if the tide would have taken these items in a different direction than Angel Island. So...how did they end up there? Like the Tena Bar money, it's hard to explain how multiple items of the same genre end up in the same exact place by natural forces alone. I would like to know HOW FAR APART these items were found on Angel Island. Were they found reletively close together, or far apart on the beach? Close together might indicate a human placement. Far apart might indicate natural forces brought them there.

Quote:
'According to a 2011 program on the National Geographic Channel, investigators had found footprints leading away from the raft on Angel Island, and had also identified a Blue Chevy car stolen that night, contrary to the FBI report...'

Interesting, in any case. Wonder if Morris and the Anglins liked Chevys. Easy cars to steal back then. Unless you turned the ignition switch to Lock instead of Off, you could stuff almost anything rigid and flat into the switch and start them right up. Cool

My guess on it is this: If they reached Angel Island, they didn't steal the Chevy, because someone would have picked them up on Angel and transported them somewhere else. It's unlikely that IF this happened, that the escapees would have had to steal a car. Anyone coming to get them in a boat would have transportation already on shore. Could be one reason why they never found them. They beat the initial local search...sort of like Cooper if you think about it. Cool

If the report to the FBI is true, then it could indicate that one of the three escapees didn't make it and drowned, but still doesn't explain what happened to the other two.

You say:

"Nobody here is working on behalf of the govt to prevent Norjack from being solved. That really is paranoid thinking. It's just a chaotic blog here. It threatens nobody. We don't matter to the govt.

I know you disagree, but I think the FBI would LOVE to solve Norjack. It's their only unsolved skyjack."

HOWEVER, Why is the FBI not moving forward and sending the four envelopes of the letters to the newspapers following the DB Caper? The DNA under the stamps/envelope flaps will compare with the DNA that the FBI has from Sheridan Peterson and show a match and that he was not in Nepal as his "perfect alibi" goes but he was at the scene of the crime. This is the SMOKING GUN in the case.

The FBI needs to move forward on this to blow the case wide open and quickly solve the more than 40 year old only unsolved Sky Jacking.

If they had arranged boat pickup wouldn't it make sense to be picked in the bay up just outside the Alcatraz no sail zone? The voyage to Angel Island was extremely risky in a homemade raft.

Also Angel Island is big. How would you arrange a night rendezvous?

The guards on Alcatraz paid no attention to boats unless they came within about 100 yards of the island. If you came closer they got real excited. Searchlights, loudspeakers, threats to fire unless you exited promptly. Ask me how I know.

I think it is likely they saw something but just didn't want to get involved while in the vicinity.

I also don't think the escape is why Alcatraz was closed, I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I've read somewhere that closure was already in the works...?
Even if not, Alcatrez days were numbered. It was just too old, falling apart, and was too expensive to maintain and operate.

Alcatraz Closes

On March 21, 1963, USP Alcatraz closed after 29 years of operation. It did not close because of the disappearance of Morris and the Anglins (the decision to close the prison was made long before the three disappeared), but because the institution was too expensive to continue operating. An estimated $3-5 million was needed just for restoration and maintenance work to keep the prison open. That figure did not include daily operating costs - Alcatraz was nearly three times more expensive to operate than any other Federal prison (in 1959 the daily per capita cost at Alcatraz was $10.10 compared with $3.00 at USP Atlanta). The major expense was caused by the physical isolation of the island - the exact reason islands have been used as prisons throughout history. This isolation meant that everything (food, supplies, water, fuel...) had to be brought to Alcatraz by boat. For example, the island had no source of fresh water, so nearly one million gallons of water had to be barged to the island each week. The Federal Government found that it was more cost-effective to build a new institution than to keep Alcatraz open.

Re: [smokin99] ANGLE OF THE DANGLE [In reply to] Can't Post

Back in the early 60s there was no GPS. We couldn't afford radar. Tidal currents in SF Bay that vary from place to place made dead reckoning navigation inaccurate. One foggy night coming in from a fishing trip my Dad strayed inside the no sail zone at Alcatraz. By the time we figured out where we were our boat was quite close to the Alcatraz shore. They lit us up with a searchlight and warned us through loudspeakers to exit the area immediately or we would be fired on. We weren't interested in a gunfight and left right away. It was actually scary. I was pretty young at the time.

Alcatraz In A Nutshell [In reply to] Can't Post

the biggest mistake was the use of salt water to flush the toilets, this started leaking into the concrete causing it to become brittle and also weakened the rebar. huge mistake!!

there is also a report of a boat seen close to Alcatraz at around the time of the escape, I have not been able to locate or confirm this. (reported on unsolved mysteries)

since the escape, two unknown tall women were reported at the mothers funeral (also unconfirmed) Clarence Carnes who was also on Alcatraz claims he received a coded postcard from them stating "gone fishing" this was confirmed while talking to Carnes, but, he never revealed the postcard. The Anglins mother received flowers every mothers day until her death. (from unknown source) a woman from a Lawyer's office received a phone call the day after the escape claiming they wanted to set up a meeting. There was also the suspicious death of Alfred Anglin, a third brother, killed by guards in an Alabama prison.

to date nothing has ever been mentioned about Frank Morris other than some old man on You Tube.

this should answer the questions about why the prison was closed, but, like the Cooper case it only adds confusion as to the truth about where they really might be. (dead or alive?)

"Contact RobertMBlevins for a movie script! "
funny you said this, I actually have one of the scripts from the movie Cool I collect them as well as civil war documents.

I think the above "myth" can be laid to rest permanently. Why would they try to set up a meeting with the law enforcement people and prosecutors the the day after escaping?

Surely no one thinks they were interested in turning themselves back in and returning to Alcatraz. A prison guard is the last thing they ever wanted to see again.

according to reports, communication was done to the outside via postcards, remember these are convicts with nothing to do but think! Morris had a IQ of 133, the object was to get off the island, by any means. the FBI has claimed for years only remnants of the raft were found, documents say a different story. the limit to the shore was 200 yards, not 100 as mentioned above. the FBI also claimed no cars were stolen around this time, once again buried in the files was a story contradicting this statement.

right or wrong, Risk is a convicts middle name Cool

I agree, was just showing what the records state, the odds of any of them making it are very slim, you would think they would trip up some where getting caught doing something.

what can one believe? you have one body seen (not entirely confirmed) and a raft found with footprints leading away on Angel Island miles in the opposite direction of the floating body? did the Anglin's off Morris? who knows. the story is surrounded with myth's just as the Cooper case Cool

I don't generally do screenplays. A few pages here or there, nothing serious.

Besides, who would want to do another film on the escape? Clint Eastwood already made the best version. I especially liked Patrick McGoohan as the semi-sadistic warden:

"They drowned..."


Shutter says in part:

I have to agree. As far as 'monitoring this thread 24/7', I do have a day job and I don't pack my iPhone around at work.

Georger says in part:

Quote:
'Blevins has had nothing but movie scripts on his mind since Porteous first contacted him saying

Actually, he said: "I have a suspect in mind in the DB Cooper case. His name is Kenny Christiansen."

Robert: "Who?"

Porteous: "I can send you some files on him."

Reality Check: We've only had one inquiry on film rights in over two years. Rights are not being marketed actively, and I have no intention of doing a screenplay. I also think your constant mention of my name just counter-indicates your desire to discuss Cooper, rather than yours truly. Yours truly is a bit of a boring sort anyway. Unimpressed

I don't generally do screenplays. A few pages here or there, nothing serious.

Besides, who would want to do another film on the escape? Clint Eastwood already made the best version. I especially liked Patrick McGoohan as the semi-sadistic warden:

"They drowned..."


Shutter says in part:

'End Of Story....back to Cooper...'

I have to agree. As far as 'monitoring this thread 24/7', I do have a day job and I don't pack my iPhone around at work.

Georger says in part:

Quote:
'Blevins has had nothing but movie scripts on his mind since Porteous first contacted him saying
"MOVIE DEAL!"...'

Actually, he said: "I have a suspect in mind in the DB Cooper case. His name is Kenny Christiansen."

Robert: "Who?"

Porteous: "I can send you some files on him."

Reality Check: We've only had one inquiry on film rights in over two years. Rights are not being marketed actively, and I have no intention of doing a screenplay. I also think your constant mention of my name just counter-indicates your desire to discuss Cooper, rather than yours truly. Yours truly is a bit of a boring sort anyway. Unimpressed

Reality Check:

You cross every T and dot every I ... in trash talk
that has no meaning in the first place.

Stick to your day job. Forget about stand-up. That's my advice.
