Default The Identity Of D.B. Cooper Has Possibly Been Confirmed Using A Decoded Confession

Shortly after the FBI officially closed the case of D.B. Cooper, the mysterious figure who hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft in 1971 and made off with $200,000 in ransom money, the agency was sued by a team of cold-case investigators to hand over all its files. The team, led by TV and film executive Thomas Colbert, was made up of 40 FBI agents, criminologists, journalists, and attorneys who believed that the real identity of Cooper was 72-year-old San Diego resident Robert Rackstraw.

Rackstraw’s name had been previously tossed around as a possible suspect in the case in a History Channel special on Cooper, but there had never been definitive evidence by law enforcement to make an arrest.

Now, Colbert and company believe they have made the connection that Rackstraw is indeed the notorious skyjacker.

One of the pieces of evidence Colbert’s team received in the lawsuit was a previously unreleased letter addressed to The Portland Oregonian newspaper, which read as follows.
Quote:
“This letter is too (sic) let you know I am not dead but really alive and just back from the Bahamas, so your silly troopers up there can stop looking for me. That is just how dumb this government is. I like your articles about me but you can stop them now. D.B. Cooper is not real,” it reads.

“I want out of the system and saw a way through good ole Unk,” he writes. “Now it is Uncle’s turn to weep and pay one of it’s own some cash for a change. (And please tell the lackey cops D.B. Cooper is not my real name).”
Supposedly that's a code for "I am really [this guy]"
read the article to understand.

Famed hijacker D.B. Cooper ID'd as Vietnam vet

LINK

His name is Robert Rackstraw, now 74, a Vietnam special forces veteran who lives in San Diego.

“Rackstraw is a narcissistic sociopath who never thought he would be caught,” he said.

​After Rackstraw dodges 6 months of interview requests, Colbert sends a surveillance and camera crew to San Diego. When subject spots them, he hides in shipping container for an hour
Today, 46 years after that Thanksgiving-eve skydive, three facts about the identity of D.B. Cooper are true:

1. A team of 40 volunteer sleuths (two dozen of them former federal lawmen) has named Robert W. Rackstraw Sr. of San Diego as the person they believe to be the fugitive.

2. The actual FBI closed the case July 11, 2016 without reaching any conclusion.

3. Rackstraw has offered strange denials that raise more questions than they answer.
