DB Cooper's parachute found?
The Seattle P.I. is reporting that a farmer found an old parachute in his field that may have belonged to D.B. Cooper, the criminal/folk hero who in 1971 hijacked a plane, collected a ransom of $200,000, the parachuted out the back.
Many think he died. None of the ransom money was ever circulated. But if this parachute turns out to be the right make, it could revive all sorts of speculation. Until then, I recommend listening to the Todd Snider song DB Cooper.
