American Hijacker Identified?!

( – This public figure, known for his role in “History’s Greatest Mysteries,” has dedicated significant effort to solving the enigmatic case of D.B. Cooper, the notorious plane hijacker who vanished in 1971.

Eric Ulis’ recent findings, as reported by Fox News, suggest he may be close to uncovering Cooper’s true identity.

D.B. Cooper, who initially identified himself as “Dan” during the hijacking, became infamous after demanding $200,000 in ransom and parachuting from a commercial jet, never to be seen again. The name “D.B.” arose from a misreporting by a journalist. Authorities have long suspected “Dan Cooper” to be an alias.

Ulis’s investigation has focused on a clip-on tie left behind by Cooper, which he believes might have been purchased from JCPenney. Previously analyzed, the tie has now revealed microscopic particles that Ulis, through modern technology and analysis methods not available in 1971, believes could provide crucial clues.

By examining these particles, Ulis traced three fragments back to Crucible Steel, a steel plant in Pennsylvania. He notes that Crucible Steel was a significant subcontractor for Boeing during the 1960s, supplying materials for aircraft production.

Ulis suggests this connection could indicate that Cooper knew Boeing 727s, the aircraft model he hijacked. He further speculates that Cooper might have been familiar with Seattle, where the plane was destined, due to Crucible Steel’s frequent business with Boeing in the city.

Ulis ties these findings to the economic downturn Boeing faced in 1971, marked by the famous Seattle billboard reading, “The last person leaving Seattle, please turn out the lights.” He posits that Cooper could have been affected by this downturn.

The investigation has led Ulis to a former titanium research engineer at Crucible Steel, who passed away in 2002, as a potential suspect. Ulis asserts he can place this individual in Seattle and connect him to Boeing, making him a compelling person of interest in the D.B. Cooper case.

Ulis’s pursuit of the truth extends beyond speculation. He has actively sought to access more evidence, even suing the FBI to gain further insights into the only unsolved hijacking in U.S. aviation history. His determination to delve deeper into this man’s identity demonstrates his commitment to solving one of the most enduring mysteries in American crime history.
