Closing one of the longest and most exhaustive cases in the agency's history, the FBI is no longer investigating the mystery of the skyjacker known as D.B. Cooper.
Forty-five years ago Cooper vanished out of the back of a hijacked Boeing 727 into a freezing northwest rain wearing a business suit, a parachute and a pack with $200,000 in cash. The agency said it will preserve evidence from the case at its Washington, D.C., headquarters, but it doesn't want further tips unless people find parachutes — or Cooper's money.
Feliks Banel from Here & Now contributor KUOW in Seattle reminds us about America's most famous unsolved skyjacking case.
