“On Nov. 24, 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper parachuted out of a Boeing 727 and into the legends of the Pacific Northwest.”
“Then, in 1980, a young boy digging along the banks of the Columbia River at Tena Bar north of Portland uncovered three bundles of cash. The $5,800 in bills was identified as Coopers ransom money through serial numbers, recorded before they were given to him on the day of the hijacking.
The found money only served to deepen the mystery around the nations only unsolved airline hijacking.
In 2007, FBI agent Larry Carr, in a bid to solve the case, released evidence and information to the public.
Thats when Tom Kaye stepped in,” quoting Craig Sailor in The Olympian.
