Re: [georger] Peterson in Nepal [In reply to] Can't Post

Received a reply by email from a guy who was in the Kathmandu Valley in 1970. Says mudbrick huts were occasional there, more prevelent in other areas of the country. Judging from all the pictures I've seen lately of Life in Nepal, I'd say that using natural materials to build homes was a common practice. It's a sure bet that if Sheridan was in Nepal, he wasn't staying in a single-story ranch style rambler with a double garage.

Made a little animation a while back about my Favorite Car Ever...Lil' Subie. (Turn up your speakers) She is gone now. (*hangs head*) After four months in the driveway with a snapped timing belt, she became an organ donor at the wrecking yard. Tomorrow, I'm picking up a very nice '88 Nissan hardbody truck with less than 100k original and the Z-24 motor. The Z-motor doesn't have a belt. It uses a timing chain. Smile

Re: [Farflung] Cactus pricks [In reply to] Can't Post

 

If you had poison ivey on all of your private parts and fell into the black berries (perhaps cactus would be more appropriate), fire ant bite really hurt, in a tux in a chapel with NO A/C with the outside temps at 101 degrees - you would be down on your knees begging and since you would also be in a church - perhaps praying for mercy.

You made a comment and this is my retort. If that makes me a mean old woman then so be it.
If you had fought the battle I have for 17 yrs you would be a mean SOB....also.

Note you sure didn't like my standing up to you! Some of the things you say about others aren't alway nice....

Yeah! What SHE said!

You might not agree with her, but why pick on a lady who is old enough to be almost anyone's mother on this thread?

Some of you think you know everything. Others, even though they are smarter than Benji the Dog, have no manners. That's one thing my mother taught me: Manners.

It was either some manners from the boy, or she was slapping me into next week like a red-haired stepchild. (just kidding)

Re: [377] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

We no longer have a snowmann in this forum, but there is no shortage of strawmen.

Marla only has her memories of when she is 8 years old and information her father told her. Those memories, she recalled later.

She would not know where her uncle landed -- it's likely she would not have heard that as an 8 year old and not something her father would have told her either. Anything she said was likely speculation.

The point I was trying to make was not to compare her to a Pulitzer prize winner (I think everyone except Robert Blevins got that), but like many people she knew SOMETHING, but she wasn't sure what she knew. And, what she did know wasn't conclusive by any means --but not so "out there" for the FBI to dismiss it either.

In the case of Marla's story (and this would be true of all of the other theories on here), we have no more information that would lead us to prove or disprove it than we had when it first came out.

And, 377, you're an attorney, correct? If you interviewed Sheridan as your client, he could tell you his whole story and the condition that nothing be revealed until his death and under attorney-client privilege, you could not be compelled to reveal it before then, right?

Thanks for the reference in Nepal to mud huts and pictures of some.

From Blevins:

This was taken from a review on a travel website. There are many like it, where people mention mudbrick cottages with thatched roofs, although today the majority are using more modern construction. A picture of a typical Nepali mud hut is here: http://www.travelblog.org/Photos/3200908

Now that makes Sheridan's story about mud huts believable. How about the picture of him doing a demonstration jump before the NORJACK Caper dressed in the business chute and loafers. I know I have seen the photo but does anyone know where to find it?

Correct.

I'd take Sheridan's case pro bono...one old jumper helping another. It's a nice fantasy but it won't happen. Sheridan thinks I am FBI/CIA which is kinda ironic. I contribute regularly to an organization that sues the FBI and CIA to stop abuses and unconstitutional actions.

Re: [MarkBennett] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

"She would not know where her uncle landed"

I have to disagree with this statement, this is from a phone interview Marla gave.

She went on to explain that the reports of the jump had been misreported. The weather was bad on the night of November 24th but D.B. Cooper told the pilot at what speed, altitude and direction to fly. L.D. Cooper worked as a surveyor and knew this area very well. It has been reported that D.B. Cooper jumped over a very heavily wooded area when, in all actuality, he jumped over farmland and had planned his jump to put himself inside of a six mile area which was only seven miles from the home of L.D. Cooper. The parachute that was requested by D.B. Cooper was not steerable which would make his drop dependent solely on the wind to carry his direction.

LD was not a surveyor in 1971, this was later in his life! on another interview she clearly stated they had to go back into the woods and find the money?

same interview....
I asked Miss Cooper about Dan Coopers attitude. He was very polite and cordial to flight attendant Florence Shaffner to whom he passed the note and from whom he ordered his drinks. At no point during the hijacking was he ever loud, angry or aggressive toward the passengers or crew. Miss Cooper relayed to me that he had not been raised that way and it wasnt in him to be that way towards other people. He was a nice, easy going guy who smiled a lot.

Marla made a different comment stating he was trying to commit suicide doing the hijacking, how does that fit a "easy going guy who smiled a lot" if he was trying to commit suicide, why would he have Dewey on the ground?

I see a charming woman telling a charming story, the problem is that the charming story is just that.....a story!

people are known to do strange things for money or attention! Knoss shows a similar pattern in which I believe he also seeks attention with his "story"

377 you should be able to see this with the remarks she made about the case being closed, shows once again more stretching of the "story"

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

Excerpts from email between Marla and AB of Seattle after her interview, and just before the interview was published at Newsvine:

Robert: I know you believe we've been hard on you, but there were two reasons for this. One was because we felt the timing of your story was convenient and the fact it was (mostly) unsupported, and the other was certain postings you made at Facebook at the time you first came forward. Several people took screenshots and sent them to us. In one, when you are asked what you will do now that the story came out on ABC (August 4th posting, I believe) you said this: 'A lot of capitalizing.' In another, you say: 'In case you missed the big news on ABC...I'm ready to begin my own media frenzy.' There are others.

Marla: I'm an open book. It has never been a secret to anyone I intend to capitalize. If you were the one living person in the world who had an eye witness account of the planning and confession of the sixth largest crime (really? The 6th?)... you would too. You'd be stupid not to. Nobody is pissed off that you, Geoffrey, etc. have written books on the subject. My perspective is unique and so is my experience. That last conversation with my father included him admonishing me "You need to write a book about this." When my memories surfaced in 2009, I realized his words were a deathbed mandate and I have taken it very seriously.

Robert: These statements point to what many people have been saying, that perhaps you were just using the Cooper case to further your own ends.

Marla: Unlike you, I did not choose this story. It chose me. At eight, one has no control over life events. It's pretty cool to be me, I must say! I have several books in my brain, as my friends would tell you. I'm glad this one will impact a lot of people. I plan to sell it huge and will do everything I can to make sure that happens. The more money it makes, the more I have to give, to spend, to do as I will.

Robert: I'm not saying that's true (*statements that could lead people to believe story might be invented for personal gain*), but you have to admit it looks bad.

Marla: Maybe it looks bad to a handful of people, but your little caldron of bitterly debating sleuths does not represent the masses. I don't make my life choices and decisions based on what people may think. I base them on my own convictions...'

On Another Note:

Quote:
'But I have a better mystery for you.

Oh, no. The conspiracy deepens and more become involved. Fogerty uses THREE pickups on a Rickenbacker...and mysteriously...so does John Lennon! They worked in collusion, I think. Cool See pictures for proof!

Re: [RobertMBlevins] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

"Maybe it looks bad the a handful of people"

while I was checking into her story last year I found that statement to be false as well, lots of people made comments on You Tube, websites stating they didn't like the fact of her doing a book before any real conclusions were made! lots a of people didn't believe Cooper would only change his first name including myself.

I spoke with the gentleman from Strangehistory.org he kept telling me it was not Sisters she was talking about, LD lived in Sparks, Bend and North East California, those three places were in the flight path, but, they would have not had a problem looking for the money since these locations were hundred of miles away in some locations as to where they were looking for Cooper.

I can not say it enough, her story does not hold water any better than what Knoss is claiming! both show the same signs when confronted....lots of anger. nether one has shown any real proof, a strap and a picture is hardly proof of anything!

she claimed he landed on flat farmland, how in the world did he get all bloody and battered? because the FBI claimed he would probably be injured if he survived! most suspects to date keep stating there suspect was injured! if he beat the odds and made it, why does he have to be injured?

I'm not the ONLY one around here who gets their claims on the Cooper case questioned. And I'm a big believer in the concept that if you provide people enough rope when they are being deceptive, they will eventually find a tree and hang themselves with it.

I also believe you are still angry that I called you out on your phony quote by Geoff Gray. First you said Gray told you this, then you said you heard it from someone else. I can't even remember anymore who you attributed it to now. When you come to me with that type of BS, you have to expect I'm going to dispute it. So unless you are willing to make public an email from Gray where he confirms this, then you should stop quoting him.

The real problem is that your credibility is completely trashed now. Not because of the quote, but because you post up negative crap anytime something appears here with my name on it. It's consistent, which proves you have personal issues.

Sorry to bust your AB conspiracy theory. Yeah, it's only me who posts here. Actually, I think the Lennon/Fogerty Rickenbacker Conspiracy holds more water. At least there is some pictorial evidence. Crazy

I have to disagree with this statement, this is from a phone interview Marla gave.

Maybe I'm not conveying this correctly.

Like anyone else with a story, there are things Marla knows and there are things she could not know.

Some of the things she says are speculation on her part. I don't believe she could know where the jumper landed. But, just because she says things she may not know does not mean everything she says is speculation.

Jo knows where Duane told her before he died.
Marla knows what she saw when she was 8 and what her father told her.
Blevins knows KC was unaccounted for at the time of the jump and had more money afterward.

Most everything else about the suspects is speculation.

Can you name a single "fact" about Duane Weber, KC, Sailshaw's suspect, or Marla's uncle that connects them with D. B. Cooper? Everything about either of these four suspects being connected to Cooper is speculation or a complete fabrication.

Re: [MarkBennett] Marla [In reply to] Can't Post

I understand speculation, but she went way over that by stating where he landed, Marla has always been very confident that her uncle was the hijacker, I have yet to see any confirmed evidence pointing to this. her family has not backed anything she says, her mother only states "I always had a hunch" her brother who was there also tells a different story, I am leaning 99% that she is fabricating her story VS speculation IMO.

Personally I think she likes attention more than the money she thought she would get by doing this, sometimes the truth is harder to swallow, how much rope are we to give her in this "story" or when is time to finally say the story is not true? the public can be very giving and at the same time turn on you in a second, Marla found this out just a couple of months after going public.

we have one picture of LD around the age of DB and one picture of him much older, where are all of the memories she can remember so vivid? no family photo's nothing? I found a lot of problems with her story trying to make it work, it just does not add up,

even if you don't believe Jo, you can rest assure she has piles of files showing proof of her attempt, Marla had one little picture with the strap...nothing else, except, speculation! it's possible she is mixing up another story as some have claimed but I'm not buying that either.

I truly believe some of the evidence is still around be it in the woods or near the river or possibly in someone's attic waiting to be uncovered, I'm not that confident we have any idea who he really is...........

'Can you name a single "fact" about Duane Weber, KC, Sailshaw's suspect, or Marla's uncle that connects them with D. B. Cooper?'

KC: Bernie Geestman tells a national television audience that yes...KC could be the hijacker. He fails to mention he was WITH KC for several days over the time of the hijacking. Above and beyond the witness testimony and the other evidence (mostly circumstantial) you have to wonder why would he say such a thing? Why didn't he say he KNEW KC wasn't the guy...because he was WITH him?

Blevins, As I remember it, you have repeatedly called Geestman a liar.

So how do you rate your answer above? Fact, speculation, fabrication, or all three?

Fact: Geestman said that. Also a fact: Multiple witnesses who had not communicated with each other in many years put the two men together and missing. The best witness was Helen Jones, who also mentioned Kenny confirmed for her six weeks after the hijacking that the two men were together. Her daughter seconded this, saying yes...they were supposed to attend Thanksgiving dinner. Geestman's wife DID attend, and was highly pissed off. This was confirmed by Mrs. Geestman and Jones, as well as Jones' daughter. Jones and Geestman had not heard from each other for more than 15 years, yet both gave the same story.

Fact: Bernie Geestman has lied, but usually those lies were in an effort to distance himself from any possible involvement in Kenny's spending, or the hijacking. I don't think he was lying. Had he known that Jones and his ex-wife had put he and Kenny together over that week, it's certain he would not have said he thought KC could be the hijacker.

The Decoded cast and crew reported that Geestman was questioned for nearly three hours. He refused to answer where he was, the details on why he bought the trailer and wagon just before the hijacking, and virtually anything else. I think he finally just 'broke' a bit near the end and decided to try (again) to blame the hijacking on anyone else except HIM.

Blevins, Just exactly what in everything you have written above actually connects ANYONE to D. B. Cooper?

I appreciate your question, but it's Sunday and I'm just not willing to go over the whole case against Christiansen again. Just ask yourself WHY Geestman would volunteer such a thing. You haven't believed any of the evidence or testimony from the start. Nothing I can say will change that, so let's just agree to disagree. I already know there are people who will never believe the testimony and the evidence. That's understandable. However, there are just as many who do. Until the Seattle FBI puts an end to it one way or another, the question on Christiansen is unsettled. No matter what you may have heard, they have never investigated him.
