Mr Blevins,Just wanted to say thank you for all of your work on the D B Cooper case. I have seen the information on your website and most of your YouTube videos and it is all very interesting.I am originally from England and first heard about the case in the late 1980’s when it was shown on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack. I found it fascinating but at the time there was no internet and no real way to look into it further.I moved to the US in 2004, got married and had 2 boys. Over the last few years my interest in the case was reignited by many TV shows and YouTube videos. I’m not a hardcore follower of the case by any means, but of all the theories and ideas I have seen – yours is by far the most compelling.I thought you might find this interesting – My boys (13 and 10) are home-schooled and a few weeks ago I gave them a project to do. Prior to this they had no knowledge of the Cooper case at all. I told them about the case and told them I wanted them to investigate it. They had to spend 1-2 hours a day investigating the case, by finding out information online and watching YouTube videos about the case. At the end they were to submit a final paper (they both chose to do it with PowerPoint) with their findings. I told them to pick 5 or 6 of the suspects from the main Wikipedia page to investigate and that they could not talk to each other about their investigations. Also I did not instruct them or coach them in any way toward any suspect.I received the final PowerPoint presentations yesterday. I understand that you are busy but if you’d be interested in seeing their presentations then I’d be happy to send them to you.Thanks again for everything you’ve done in providing information about this case and I look forward to seeing the movie when it’s released.Regards,

I told Nick to go ahead and send the two brothers’ PowerPoint presentations along. I also asked if I could post them in an article at WordPress. The father agreed, only asking I abbreviate all last names to a single letter. Both presentations are shown below, converted to PDF documents for easier access. I told Nick that he had smart boys for sure.
His younger brother Ethan’s is HERE.

It is NOT ransom money from the hijacking, but was buried using thin pieces of wood as a sort of cover box, and the bills were wrapped in heavy plastic. The using of the wood was similar to what Kenny did when he built ANOTHER hiding spot in the attic of his house.)
