Eric began investigating the DB Cooper mystery about 10 years ago with the goal of gaining a better understanding of the facts in the case and bringing some clarity to the legend. He did not think he would actually identify a suspect.
During his research into the DB Cooper case Eric also identified the actual 1980 money find spot on Tena Bar. The FBI had not recorded the spot during their investigation and ultimately it was lost to time until Eric pinpointed it in January 2019.
