The FBI could soon solve the mystery of DB Cooper, the man sought by authorities since the 1971 hijacking of a Northwest Orient Airlines flight from Portland to Seattle, according to a witness who has been described by the agency as credible, NWCN reports. Investigators are currently attempting to link fingerprints left behind on the airplane with fingerprints obtained from the toothbrush of a man known as LD Cooper, the uncle of a tipster who contacted authorities with suspicions about her relative earlier this year. Marla Cooper says her uncle was injured when he arrived at her family's home in Sisters, Ore. the day after the hijacking, but he blamed his wounds on a car crash. "I knew he did it, it wasn't speculation, I was there when he pulled into the driveway," Marla Cooper told the news station. LD Cooper died in 1999. The hijacker bought his ticket under the alias "Dan Cooper," but news reports misidentified his name as DB Cooper.The guy's name was LD Cooper and apparently lived in the Norwest...and somehow they missed him? I can believe it. I still think it was Nixon.
