D.B. Cooper mystery solved? Book publisher promises ID of skyjacker

A book publisher is planning a news conference Thursday to announce it knows the true identity of D.B. Cooper, a mysterious man who hijacked a plane in 1971 and then parachuted out of it with $200,000 in ransom money.

Grand Rapids-based Principia Media says Cooper was a former military paratrooper named Walter R. Reca — the latest in a long string of people to be publicly linked to the crime over the years.

A press release from the publisher said it worked with Reca's best friend, Carl Laurin, in compiling evidence.

"Evidence, including almost-daily discussions over a 14-year period and 3-plus hours of audio recordings featuring the skyjacker, was compiled by Reca’s best friend. ... The audio recordings, created in 2008, include Reca discussing skyjacking details that were not known to the public prior to the FBI’s information release in 2015," the press release says.
