    No, it will never be solved. Something that stays cold for this long, it just seems super unlikely.

    Anybody ever watch the show Leverage? They did an episode one time about this. In their scenario, the guy (DB Cooper) ended up marrying the stewardess from the plane, and ended up in the FBI, during which, you guessed it...he looked for DB Cooper. While totally fictional, it made you think of the different possibilities that could have occurred.

    That also pretty much describes season 4 of Justified with the Sheriff Shelby Parlow / Drew Thompson story line.
