Fairly well done, wouldn’t call it all fact

This podcast was well put together with a lot of fun detail. However, there isn’t any conclusive evidence that Walter Reca was definitely DB Cooper. Odd that a highly and very intensely trained paratrooper (and someone who has committed robbery before) would be so scared and nervous that he conveniently wouldn’t remember so many things, let alone his many claims that nothing was planned when this whole scheme was very clearly planned in detail. A fun hypothesis, but not sure it should be touted as complete fact and truth.

Interesting but inaccurate

This suspect is iffy at best. The podcast is interesting and I enjoyed listening to it, but the knowledge I have of the case doesn’t jive. Reca remembers some this clear as a bell and doesn’t remember other details at all. Reca suffers from delusions of grandeur
