Time to move on. I've been doing Tolkien themes for a year or two now. Something different is in order.

FBI: 'Good' lead in D.B. Cooper skyjacking mystery


The FBI is investigating a "good" lead in a 40-year-old mystery that remains the only unsolved hijacking of a passenger plane in the United States, according to reports.

In 1971, a man who has come to be known as "D.B. Cooper" parachuted from the back of the plane — flying at 10,000 feet over Washington state in the middle of a storm — with $200,000 in cash and disappeared into history.

All that was found, The Seattle Times reported, was the hijacker's skinny black tie, a pearl tie tack, eight of his Raleigh cigarette butts and two parachutes. A child digging in sand on the Columbia River discovered a bundle of $20 bills from the ransom money in 1980.

But now, in a story first reported by the U.K.'s Telegraph newspaper, the FBI is following up a new clue.

"We do have a promising lead," FBI spokeswoman Ayn Sandalo Dietrich told The Seattle Times. "It's a routine part of our investigation."

Dietrich told the Times that someone involved in law enforcement had directed the FBI to someone who might have helpful information on a suspect, but added, "I can't get into specifics."
