One of two brothers implicated by a niece in the 40-year-old "D.B. Cooper" skyjacking case worked at Boeing around the time of the fabled incident, according to the woman's mother, The Seattle Times reports.
Boeing confirms that a Dewy Cooper worked briefly for Boeing in the late 1960s, The Seattle Times reports, but does not know whether his job would have given him knowledge of the skyjacked airplane.
The newspaper also reports that an Oregon death certificate shows that an L.D. Cooper, 67, died in Eugene, Ore., in 1999, and was buried near Bend, Ore. His occupation is listed as surveyor and engineering survey.
