Kenneth Christiansen was ruled out many years ago by the FBI. Agent Larry Carr stated Kenny could only match the fact of being male, nothing else fit. at the time he was five foot eight inches, balding at the top, and was light skinned.
Christiansen worked for Northwest Orient. sources claim an inside investigation was done, plus someone surely would of noticed at one point he might be Cooper. Christiansen also worked for NW two decades after the hijacking. Lyle Christiansen, Kenny's brother originally contacted a private detective to have a note given to a famous Hollywood producer with hopes of making a movie about his brother. Lyle was on
a radio program and admitted he probably wasn't the hijacker, but looked like Cooper.
We have seen a lot of evidence that was attempting to make Kenny appear to be guilty, but with some good research found some problems with these known facts. The private detective seemed to have over looked,
or failed to notice several things. Kenny didn't purchase his house for cash as it's been claimed for years.
in fact, it took him 17 years to pay it off. then they put a lot of mystery around a large amount of cash Kenny
had prior to his death. property records indicated Kenny owned a large lot that paid $17,000 an acre when
he sold it in the mid 90's. the property had almost two dozen acres.
Brad Meltzer's Decoded, a conspiracy type program did a full episode about Christiansen. the main suspects where Kenny Christiansen, and his long time friend Bernie Geestman. the entire show revolved around these two pulling off the crime, but in the end they concluded that Bernie was not an acomplice to the crime. this put yet another hole in the theory about Christiansen being Cooper.
To date we don't have a single witness stepping forward to help backup any statements that others claim the witnesses stated. I find this strange that someone wouldn't want to come forward in one of America's only unsolved hijacking. we see a lot of these type of stories pop up, but they appear to look good on the outside, but when you take a look inside, a different story will surface most of the time.
"The physical description I provided is a reported fact. No matter how much you would like to change it you simply can't throw it out and replace it with theoretical fact so it fits your suspect. If you do, your investigation is doomed to fail."
Agent Larry Carr from the FBI.
The document on the left shows that Christiansen sold some large property he bought years before the
hijacking, and could shed light to why he had over $200,000 in the bank in 1994. these two documents
were missed by the private investigator, as well as the person researching the trail.
Money has been said to have been found on the property after Christiansen died. we seem to have multiple stories revolving around this story. Frst they claim the money was found in 1994 by some kids playing. Dan Rattenbury tells a different story. he claims the money was found in 2010 after logging off the tree's. this was a similar story told earlier, but the logs were "quickly" sold off in 1994. claims of a newspaper ad was taken out in order to try and locate the kids. no records of the newspaper ad has ever surfaced.
The coin/stamp collection. Christiansen supposedly purchased a large coin/stamp collection over the years. the value has changed
over time from $400,000, to $300,000. all the way down to $30,000. the error was supposedly made by Lyle adding an extra zero by mistake, but that doesn't explain the 400 to 300. a collection such as this should have a paper trail with it, but again no proof has ever surfaced.
Sometimes you wonder if a story is being beefed up. statements have been made about the apartment Christiansen was renting before
he purchased his home. comments of a sleezy run down building has been set in place to make it appear Kenny had hit rock bottom. the
apartment building was only several years old prior to Christiansen moving in, so it's a little hard to swallow that it was already run down.
Today, those apartments are in bad shape. it's almost as if the author took this into consideration while making previous statements as
to the condition of the apartments back in 1971.
Other problems exist such as the myth surround Lyle Christiansen giving a DNA sample to the FBI for testing. one person insisted this over the years, but Lyle stated he never gave any DNA sample, and was wondering where the story came from. it appears to have come from the person who started the myth. (one person insisted) the deception came from one source. the only person pushing the story. that's
Robert M Blevins.
The latest claim to surface is a little girl claims to remember a few seconds in time from over 40 years ago. she claims she walked into Kenny's shed and seen them constructing "the bomb" made from rolls of quarters taped together. it's hard to believe someone could
remember something such as this. I've been ran out of rooms dozens of times as child, but I can't recall why, or who was in the room to
begin with. Marla Cooper had a similar story by recalling her Uncle building something in the garage. Kenny was poor, and yet he was
able to come up with a couple hundred dollars in quarters for the bomb? why not make it out of wood dowels, wrapped in paper, or paint them? it doesn't make sense.
The document on the left shows that Christiansen paid off his mortgage almost two decades after he
purchased the home in 1972. The common myth was Kenny paid for his home in cash. this should
have been noticed by the private detective but was over looked.
One must wonder why none of these people have come forward, or contacted the FBI themselves. here we have one of the greatest unsolved crimes of the century, and they do nothing. nobody has been able to talk with these people to verify anything. some of these
people are getting along in the years, and might not be around much longer to verify anything.
The documents above were obtained from public records on the Pierce County property website.
How could this have been overlooked by a private investigator who claims a thorough check of records was done. this was also verified by the sole person trying to prove Kenny was Cooper. he's mentioned this many times that records were searched with Kenny. his response left mystery to the amount of money in Kenny's account.
To date, the sole member trying to prove Kenny was Cooper has clearly shown deception in statements, misleading information about Kenny, or the lack of actual proof any of these people have made these claims about Kenny. until someone steps forward to verify any of these claims, one can only come to the conclusion of the whole thing being highly suspect to say the least. you just can't tell a
story without backing up the claims. it's not our job to do this. the burden of proof is on them.
"Several inaccuracies exist in the article. First, Porteous had nothing to do with the DNA sample. (Neither did Lyle's relatives, since they were embarrassed about the possibility Kenny was Cooper) The sample was provided by Lyle Christiansen to agents out of the Minneapolis office after he called them, and this was before he ever contacted Porteous. Lyle says it was a very short visit. "
Below is a quote taken from Dropzone.com in 2013. the author is quoted many times stating Lyle gave DNA to the FBI, but he had forgotten
about the comments. he contacted Lyle, and discovered Lyle never gave any DNA and was wondering where the story came from? I don't thiink we need to look very far, it was pretty detailed to be a mistake in my opinion.
"he did a great deal of research into Christiansen's financials"
Update: In Late September of 2016, the person pushing the Christiansen story was recently removed (banned) from Ariel Washington due to his behavior. Ariel is well known for a yearly event surround DB Cooper. Mr. Blevins told one too many whoppers. here is an example of how he works.
July 22, 2016 he wrote the following on his forum....
" I was target shooting not too long ago with my S/W 4506 (45 caliber) "some pieces richoched back at me" "it went into my arm'"
A member asked him about the bump on his arm. I knew something was wrong because the bump had been there for some time, not recently, or not long ago as he stated.
October 2016, he tries to call me out about the truth behind his story, really?
"You actually believe I lied when I said the stupid bump on my arm was a tiny fragment from a .22 ricochet,"
This is just one example of many of his deceptive stories, and Mr. Blevins wants people to believe what he says about Christiansen? the record shows deception in this story as well. nothing can be trusted in what Mr. Blevins claims. that's why he has been singled out.
What Robert Blevins failed to understand in his "story" was if you go to any doctor and they discover bullet fragments they have to
alert the local authorities. they have to do this by law. I would guess that a "richoche probably happened and he added to the story
much like the rest of his phoney stories of near death, or dangerous adventures...
June 18, 2017 UPDATE: Sadly, Mr. Blevins has so much hatred in him the forum he was running was shutdown by the server for terms of service violations by producing private information respectable and honest people wouldn't venture into. it was a mixture
of several violations. his entire site was dedicated to trying to discredit "yours truly" for the simple fact of not allowing to have an
opinion about his suspect, and his permanent ban way back in early 2014. it takes a special person to go to these extremes to try
and do these things for so many years. I've never encountered such hatred by one person for so long without asking myself if this
person should seek help with some sort of disorder he may have.
How can someone like this be trusted with what he claims about Kenny? he has been caught so many time being deceptive. he was the cause of the shutting down of the longest running Cooper thread to date, he has been removed from 3 different public forums, and last year he was removed from Ariel Washington where DB Cooper is celebrated every year due to his hatred that
he couldn't control about me. that alone would make anyone ashamed, and head for the hills, but he doesn't even see what he
is actually doing to himself, so I can't help someone like this. I can only pray that he can get some help and try and move on with
his life, he will state that he is done over and over, but turns right around and does the opposite. just last week on the 15th, he
said he was done with Cooper and would open another forum at a later date. the truth was that he already had a new forum started, and yes, Cooper is the largest part, along with the continued bashing of me and my forum?
