PostSubject: D.B. Cooper Letters   Wed Sep 14, 2011 6:22 am

Not saying D.B. is Zodiac cause I know the real Zodiac is Hunter S. Thompson lol. The Don Bujok suspect got me thinking of Cooper cause of his initials also being DB. After the hijacking on November 24 1971 with in 5 days four letters was sent out to newspapers.The first was sent to Reno Evening Gazette mailed from Oakdale California.

Attention!

Thanks for the hospitality.

Was in a rut.

Letter 2
A second, hand-written letter signed "D.B. Cooper" was sent to the Vancouver Province, British Columbia's largest newspaper, between November 30 and December 2, 1971. It made an odd claim that the first composite drawing of the Cooper suspect "did not represent the truth." The letter was mailed from Vancouver. Additionally, the note read:

I enjoyed the "Grey Cup" game.

Am leaving Vancouver.

Thanks for the hospitality.

Letter 3
A third, cut-and-paste letter, mailed from Oregon, was directed to the Portland Oregonian and mailed December 1 from a zip code that starts with "970," which is one of the Oregon zip codes but not Portland. It read:

Am alive and doing well in hometown. P.O.

The system that beats the system.

Letter 4
A fourth letter, as reported by the December 3 article in the Reno Evening Gazette, was mailed December 1 from US Postal Server 956, in the Sacramento area. The letter was cancelled in Sacramento but could have been mailed "at any one of 50 or 60 post offices in the Sacramento area," which included the town where the first letter was mailed: Oakdale, California. The letter was again a paste up like the first letter that read:

Plan ahead for retirement income
D.B. Cooper

Think there is another one sent to both New York Times and LA Times also but the FBI still has most of them. The one that says was in a rut to me sounds very Zodiac like and the letters being sent out to different newspapers at a rather quick period of time. What is the chance Zodiac sent these just to mess with LE ?

Here is the 3rd letter that the FBI was nice enough to release and notice the writing on the envelope and the double postage stamp. Sorry its not the best quality but the only one I could find.

Here is what the other one says that was sent out on DEC 15.

The week of Dec 15, 1971, the New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and the Seattle Times each received a copy of a letter signed "D.B. Cooper".

The NYT letter said:

"Sirs,
I knew from the start that I wouldn't be caught.
I didn't rob Northwest Orient because I thought it would be romantic, heroic or any of the other euphemisms that seem to attach to situations of high risks.
I'm no modern day Robin Hood. Unfortunately I do have only 14 months to live.
My life has been one of hate, turmoil, hunger and more hate; this seemed to be the fastest and most profitable way to gain a few fast grains of peace of mind.
I don't blame people for hating me for what I've done nor do I blame anybody for wanting me to be caught and punished, though this can never happen.
Here are some (not all) of the things working against the authorities:
I'm not a boasting man
I left no fingerprints
I wore a toupee
I wore putty make-up
They could add or subtract from the composite a hundred times and not come up with an accurate description; and we both know it.
I've come and gone on several airline flights already and am not holed up in some obscure backwoods town. Neither am I a psycopathic [sic] killer. As a matter of fact I've never even received a speeding ticket.
Thank you for your attention."

Wow Stitch, I see some double postage on that one letter, and the writing has at least some similarity...interesting

Thanks Morf and thanks Nin for posting that other letter and couldn't find it anywhere. That letter you posted Nin seems even a little to blocky for Z's taste but who knows. Does kind resemble some of the other unconfirmed Z letters though.

The "blocky" letter looks a bit like the possible ALBANY, NY letter from Z

Stitch, but it shows the "creativity" of the writer to disguise his handwriting.

I agree too Morph, the S.F.Chronicle main heading on the Bus Bomb envelope also is blocky, I like the writing on the other envelope here too. Don't think the Z had the metal to pull off what D.B.Cooper did but it would be interesting if he wrote these letters (Seeing as I feel the real DB could have ended up dead as a doornail somewhere out there.)

Quag, poss similarities there. Also from August apparently someone has provided the FBI with a new lead in the Cooper case.

Funny Morf I was just reading up on the letter the other day and you are right it does.

I don't think Z is Cooper either but think it gave Zodiac a free shot to mess with LE. With very little chance of it comeback on him and like you said Zodiac also probably figured Cooper to be dead. That's if Zodiac did write these letters of course.

A little bit.

Was Edwards out of prison when the skyjacking took place?

That "Editor" does look somewhat like the Zodiac style of "Editor". Maybe someone can do a side by side.

Read that when it first came out a women accused her uncle of being D.B and think his last name was Cooper also. She turned over a guitar strap of his to the FBI for finger prints but then FBI turned around and said there was no prints on it or something close to that.

Yes - he was free throughout the canonical Z murders and for all the letters and was free for the sky-jacking and the DB Cooper letters. He also spent time in Portland, Oregon.

I must add that I don't think he was D B Cooper but Edwards was a massive attention seeker and conman and spent the early 70s promoting his autobiography to all and sundry. It really wouldn't surprise me if he wrote hoax letters to the papers to see himself in print and needle the cops/press.

EDIT: And by the way, Edwards was living in Atlanta, Georgia when the Atlanta Child Murders letters started rolling in... Wink
