Seattle, Washington sheriff’s Department reported today that they have finally identified the infamous airplane hijacker known as “D.B.Cooper“. The identity, though not yet officially released from the Seattle sheriff’s office, is believed to be TV personality Dr. Phil.
D.B. Cooper rose to fame in urban myth as the airplane hijacker who evaded authorities by parachuting out of a jetliner over the Pacific Northwest with $200,000 in cash. The Cooper case remains the only unsolved airline hijacking in U.S. history. In 1971, Cooper jumped from a Boeing 727 into the skies somewhere between Portland, Ore., and Seattle, WA., disappearing with the ransom cash he collected from authorities.
Sources close to the investigation have intimated to Dreadmonger that the chief suspect in the investigation is TV’s Dr. Phil.
The source went on to say, “We think he used that money to pay off Oprah for giving him a spot on her daytime TV show.”
TV critics have long questioned Oprah’s judgement in her decision to include Dr. Phil as a regular on her show.
The unidentified source went on to say “I mean really, how else is this guy going to get on Oprah’s show? Dr. Phil? Come on, get real.”
When reporters at Dreadmonger pointed out that Dr. Phil was only 12 years old when the hijacking occurred in 1971, the source said, “Yea, well, still could have been him. Career criminals start at an early age. And besides, Dr. Phil was one beefy kid.”
Dreadmonger will provide real-time updates as the investigation unfolds.
