The case of the mysterious hijacker D.B. Cooper may be taking a new turn.
A crew of volunteer cold-case investigators in the Pacific Northwest say they've uncovered "potential evidence" in the 46-year-old mystery disappearance.
The group leader tells Fox News they found what "appears to be a decades-old parachute strap." The D.B. Cooper mystery has confounded law enforcement and amateur sleuths for decades.
In 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper hijacked a jetliner, demanded 200-thousand in cash and then parachuted out of the plane. No trace of Cooper has been found.
However, some bundles of the ransom cash amounting to 58-hundred dollars was uncovered in 1980 on the banks of the Columbia River between Washington and Oregon.
