The FBI says a parachute found buried in southwestern Washington is not connected to famed plane hijacker D.B. Cooper. FBI agent Laura Laughlin said Tuesday that the agency came to its conclusion after speaking with parachute experts. It also dug where children found the parachute early last month. Cooper bailed out of a Northwest Orient passenger jet with $200,000 in ransom in November 1971. Some of the cash has been found but his fate is unknown.
