D.B. Cooper: A Death-Bed Confession?

In 1971, a man going by the name of D.B. Cooper jumped from a Northwest Airlines 747 over Washington state, carrying $200,000 in ransom money from the airlines, and two parachutes. Jo Weber tells Melinda Penkava that her late husband, Duane, confessed on his deathbed five years ago that he was Cooper.
