FBI officials in Washington state, who last week were investigating a "promising lead" in the nearly 40-year-old case of skyjacker D.B. Cooper who escaped with a $200,000 ransom after parachuting out of a commercial airliner over the Pacific Northwest, said a new DNA test does not match a new suspect in the case.
The mystery of notorious airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper has stumped law enforcement for nearly four decades, but the distant childhood memories of an Oklahoma City woman seem to be prompting the FBI to take a closer look at the nation's only unsolved skyjacking.
An Oklahoma woman claims an uncle who planned something "very mischievous" over the holidays in 1971 was D.B. Cooper, the never-captured hijacker who jumped out of a plane with $200,000.
Mr. Gutt said three different DNA samples from the tie were taken, adding that it could have been used by others.
Mr. Gutt also noted that agents, who also were dealing with an inconclusive round of fingerprint testing, are now working with family members to identify other items that could be further tested for fingerprints.
