In 1971, D.B. Cooper took over a plane and jumped out of it with a parachute. We don’t know what happened to him after that, or if he’s still alive.
In July, a new true crime documentary series will come out that tells and looks into an amazing true story. People are just as curious about where Girl in the Picture’s kidnapper Franklin Floyd is now.
Plus, where Warren Jeffs from Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey and Michelle Carter, the girlfriend in the new show The Girl from Plainville who helped her boyfriend kill himself, are now.

D.B Cooper: Is He Still Alive?

What Movies Have Been Made About D.B. Cooper?
The Pursuit of D. B. Cooper is an American crime thriller from 1981. It is about the famous plane hijacker D. B. Cooper, who jumped from the back of a Boeing 727 airliner on November 24, 1971, and ran away with $200,000.
What Was D.B. Cooper Doing?
On November 24, 1971, the night before Thanksgiving, a man named Dan Cooper got on a flight from Portland International Airport to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport with Northwest Orient Airlines.
During the 37-minute flight, he told a flight attendant that he had a bomb. He asked for $200,000, which is about $1.3 million now, and four parachutes.
Tina Mucklow asked if she could look at the bomb. She thought that the eight red cylinders looked like bombs. “He took the zipper off the bag and showed me the bomb,” she said. He talked about it. I’m sure I was surprised. He put his briefcase away and looked out the window.
She told the captain, and the captain called ATC. The CEO of the airline company said he would pay if the passengers were let go.
Before landing, the plane flew around for more than two hours. The 32 passengers and two flight attendants were allowed to leave, and the money and parachutes were given to D.B. Cooper.
Then he asked to be flown to Mexico City at the slowest speed possible with the back door open. Also, he asked the stewardess, Tina Mucklow, to show him how to open the stairs.
Twenty minutes into the flight, D.B. Cooper took the money, put on a parachute, and jumped out of the plane. He was never seen again.
Nobody is sure who D.B. Cooper really was. When a local newspaper misheard Dan Cooper’s name and changed it to D.B. Cooper, the name stuck. But over time, many people have thought they knew who did it.
I always fancied myself as an amateur sleuth and the db copper mystery is about the easiest case I’ve ever solved. He was hiding in plain sight the whole time as the lead singer of a couple bands and died a couple years ago. Open and shut case @netflix #DBCooper pic.twitter.com/FQchocRMUk
