  1. I and a few other guys are trying to identify these two people. If we can get their names... well, that'd be huge. We're hoping to find local sources in Shelton and in Egg Harbor.
  2. There were some new details about EHS, the biggest was his release from TWA after the hijacking and his lack of an alibi during the hijacking... We think. The files are so heavily redacted we can't be sure. It also appears as though they had EHS' work, military and education history as well.
  3. I have heard of email, and if I wanted a straight-up rejection that's what I would do.
  4. So you don't know? I'm confused...
  5. Jarvis was a profiler? Did he ever work on, or was he ever otherwise assigned to the Cooper case?
  6. There are two, the man from Shelton, and the man from Egg Harbor.
  7. The FBI couldn't *prosecute* the case, but that doesn't mean they didn't solve it. Based on what I'm seeing it looks like they believed they had a suspect they thought was Cooper, but couldn't prove it in court.
  8. There is a lot of valuable information in these documents, especially in regards to the named suspects like Duane Weber, Rackstraw and McCoy. There is also a lot of information on the "unresolved" suspects like the Egg Harbor Suspect and the Shelton Lead, but you have to read through the documents and the redactions to find it. To say that less information is better than more information is to confuse the distinction between the signal and the noise. More noise is fine, if one can find the signal contained therein. #57 had more information on one of those unresolved suspects, and was of great interest.
  9. There is a very specific description from Rat somewhere in the FOIA docs where he talks about his earpiece falling out and getting a pop in his ears from the pressure change as Cooper jumped. Between that and the FDR, it's highly unlikely Cooper jumped farther south.
  10. Fly, maybe you can assist here. How many parachutes are mentioned in the FOIA files? I know of one north of the Lewis River, the one on the S. Fork Lewis River, and the Amboy chute. I know there were others, did you keep track?
  11. I would leave the final answer up to Tom, but based on the conclusions in his paper, that scenario doesn't work. There is a distinct disconnect between the timing of the hijacking and when the TB money is exposed to the Columbia river. They are different events.
  12. The dredging timeline doesn't fit the diatom analysis, unfortunately. Which means the money has to be out of the bank bag and fanned out, in the Columbia, in June.
  13. Any hits in 56 on "elsinore" "campbell" "eugene" "shelton" or "egg harbor"?
  14. It seems like it's a little early to be talking about cancelling an event scheduled for June...
  15. Even if a senior FBI agent thinks a particular suspect is Cooper that doesn't really mean anything. There is an FBI agent who thinks Sheridan Peterson is Cooper. Another says he shot and killed D.B Cooper decades ago (Richard McCoy). Curtis Eng ignored Tom Kaye's forensic findings and focused on LD Cooper until that fizzled into nothing. Himmelsbach may have at one point been convinced by Jo about Duane. FBI agents are real people with differing opinions and are fallible.
  16. In the end, we'll be getting even more documents from the FBI. I've heard estimates as high as ten years to get the entire investigation to the public. If the penultimate or ultimate case agent thought they had a likely suspect who happened to be deceased, we'll know eventually.
  17. The case was shut down four and a half years ago. If the FBI had a "for sure" candidate, *someone* would have mentioned it by now.
  18. We really need to interview Carr or any of the other Case Agents at length about these issues. How did these transitions go? was there any meaningful transfer of knowledge? etc.
  19. That sounds way more plausible.
  20. I have a small coupon redemption book from that era and no parachutes, which would be an odd redemption product. Was there a larger catalog or product list?
  21. This looks like a summary of a second interview, 12-6-71, so it's within a couple of weeks of the hijacking. I'd be more skeptical if this detail came out a year or two later. Instead, it looks like the second debrief.
  22. Fly, Did your search of FBI #55 show anything of interest?
  23. Fly, how good is your word search on the FBI files, do those newspaper articles register as searchable?
  24. Fly, I am taking another look at Duane Weber, what FBI doc delat with him?
  25. Feel free to contact me privately.
