Is the infamous hijacker known as D.B. Cooper buried in Bend? A grave marker at the Pilot Butte Cemetery features the name "Lynn D Cooper" and an Oklahoma woman claims that's her uncle. She also says he was the  D.B. Cooper. Kelly Cannon-Miller, Executive Director of the Des Chutes Historical Museum says Central Oregon does have a connection to Lynn Cooper. “Estle and Irene Cooper moved out here from Missouri, and he worked for Brooks Scanlon Lumber Company. And their son, Lynn Doyle Cooper is the uncle in question for the woman who is saying it was her uncle. That would have made him about 12 when they moved to Sisters." Cannon-Miller says Marla Cooper of Oklahoma mentions that she visited her grandma in 1971; and that would be Lynn Cooper's mother. She says they don't have a lot of records about Lynn Cooper, because it's likely he died in another location and his remains were brought to Bend for burial; and death records are sealed for fifty years. Cannon-Miller adds that right now, she's taking these claims with a big grain of salt.
