Famous Unsolved Cases- A few of the famous unsolved cold cases are still open, despite using new technology to catch the criminals. Throughout history there have been a few that go unsolved. Some of them are more than 100 years old and we’ll never know the truth on what happened.In 1982, seven people died in the Chicago area after taking Extra Strength Tylenol capsules. It is still one of the famous cases of the 20th century. The capsules were tampered with and laced with potassium cyanide.
The bottles, which were tampered with, came from many different factories, so blaming the contamination to one company was unsuccessful. Despite the new developments, the FBI told reporters that “no arrests have been made and no criminal charges filed,” this was after the case was reopened in January 2009.
Another case that continues to puzzle FBI agents is D.B. Cooper. He was a middle aged man who boarded Flight 305 from Portland to Seattle on Nov. 24, 1971. Shortly after takeoff, the man told the flight crew that he had a briefcase filled with dynamite. He demanded $200,000 and two parachutes or he would blow up the plane.
The plane landed in Seattle, he was given $200,000 and the air carrier took off again. Later, the same plane landed in Reno, Nevada, but Cooper was gone with the money and the exit door ajar. A boy found $5,800 along the banks of the Columbia River, which was a link to the famous case. However, it is still cold and detectives remain baffled.
