DB Cooper - Statute of Limitations
I decided to watch this episode on the internet, after the FBI released details that they're looking into a new lead on DB Cooper. Scott, the attorney on the show, tells Kenneth Christiansen's supposed accomplice that the statute of limitations has run out. According to wikipedia's reference to an article in 1996 in the Oregonian, the statute of limitations has not run out on DB Cooper.
Does anyone know if this would also apply to any accomplices he may have had? That they didn't state on the episode that the statute hasn't run out on DB Cooper while discussing the statute of limitations to the accomplice seems not thorough, like most of the episode.
Indeed, as other posters have said, it seems like they come to a conclusion, then drive home points they make to try and prove that. No scientific method whatsoever, just unintelligent entertainment is presented. I watched the show to see what more info they had to present, which was just a dumbed-down version of what's on the internet.
On a separate note, some of the surprised faces the "experts", especially Buddy, make on this episode remind me of faces John Belushi made in Animal House, I think when he's trying to cheer up Flounder after they wreck his car. Where's MST3k when you need it? :)
