I saw this discovery mentioned on a recent episode of "Expedition Unknown", a program on History Channel hosted by Josh Gates. It was looking at new research and theories in the D. B. Cooper case.

Probably all the link to CRT manufacture does is narrow the culprit's occupation down. And the discovery that "Dan Cooper" is a comic book character in a French-language comic popular in Canada may provide a clue to his nationality.

Employment records may still be around, family members might be identified.

That well known drawing of the face of "Cooper" wearing sunglasses and partly covered, with the non covered drawing, have been around since the 1970s. But nobody seems to have openly said it looks like some missing engineer in an aerospace company.

When "Son-of-Sam" operated in New York City a few years after "Cooper's" leap from the plane, several identikit drawings circulated (none of which looked like Berkowitz, by the way). I was troubled by one - it looked like somebody I knew at college. When they arrested Berkowitz I decided my imagination had been too active.

As curious as I am to see any mystery solved, part of me hopes that his identity is never discovered. I know that he took a planeload of passengers hostage, but there's a 'lovable rogue' quality about DB Cooper. He probably didn't survive the jump, but if he's still alive I'd like to think he's living it up on some tropical island somewhere!

I think you'll find a lady who loves Milk Tray is at the bottom of it.

I know exactly what you mean. Sort of enjoy his planning and the elan of that probably doomed exit from the plane. Maybe if he is alive having mai tais or cocktales on that paradise island, he invites his neighbors, the three missing Alcatraz prisoners over.

It's a bit like James Mason at the end of "The Prisoner of Zenda."
