Filmed in the Olympic Mountains back in June 2015, this video presents an extensive evidence package showing that former paratrooper and NWA employee Kenny Christiansen may have hijacked his own airline in November 1971 for $200,000 in cash. That amount is equivelent to just over a million bucks today.
In seven separate interviews I did between January and October of 2010, Margaret Ann Geestman, the ex-wife of alleged Cooper accomplice Bernie Geestman, said her ex was involved in the famous hijacking. After her ex went into denial on the History Channel show ‘Brad Meltzer’s Decoded,’ (DB Cooper episode) she suddenly sold her ranch to the State of Washington’s Fish and Game Department. She received nearly a half-million dollars for the ranch.
Along the way, she told her lawyer (S. Renee Ewalt) and the bank officer who handled the sale, (Dave Thomsen of Winthrop, WA) not to reveal where she was going. No one has heard from her since. In her final interview, she admitted that Kenny Christiansen was with her husband the entire week the hijacking occurred. Some pictures of her ranch in Twisp, WA…and her.
Last weekend I took a trip to the Olympics in Washington State for camping and some R/R. Snapped some photos and did a video on the unsolved murder of DB Cooper parachute packer Earl Cossey. Mr. Cossey was from Woodinville, WA and beaten to death in his own garage in April 2013. The King County Sheriffs Office still hasn’t a clue who did it. I had a few things to say about it.
