So what if Fenn committed a horrible crime or new someone who did and the evidence of the crime is in the chest. He said there was a surprise in the chest he refuses to talk about. Would that surprise evidence not compel or force the finder to come forward with the discovery of the chest. Perhaps this surprise item is something that legally forces the finder to come forward and is another way he would know.

Not really something the finder would enjoy, might even regret finding it if the chest contained a surprise item was a real life Pandora's box. He did say he hid the chest to give people hope or is that Hope?

In my opinion, this was one of the more interesting things that Stephanie's book connected to the chase. The secret may be contained in the chest...I can keep my secret where. Other than a few stacks, the DB Cooper money was never heard from again. If there is some in there it might leave no doubt. It's an interesting thought. If it were true, it would be a better story, though, if he had released the book upon his death making claim to the crime and challenge everyone to find the truth. Who knows, maybe that's what we're doing.

Word! From experiencing trouble, a fool is made wise.

I wasn't thinking of the DB Cooper connection, but that example surely fits the theory. I am sure there are others as well, likely remotely hinted at in his books.

Crazy Family, your remark about "keep my secret where" is something that really supports this theory. He has a secret hidden in his Pandora's box that when discovered unequivocally forces us to come forward to release the secret. He really did think of everything.

One last thing to consider, remember these words from SB 124

"Well, that’s the sad story, and I really don’t know what else to say, except that if anybody can tell me where I caught that beautiful rainbow trout, I’ll tell them a secret that I haven’t revealed to anyone – ever."

So he has admitted he has a big secret (which the treasure hunter thinks is just the spot) but the real secret is inside the chest and he has not revealed to anyone what that secret is. Wow that secret in the chest must be a doozy! But the atrocious quote makes me think it is more of a curse than a blessing.

Well, well, well... now is that not the best prediction since the inception of the chase?

I don't know how I keep coming up with such good predictions, oh yah I 'm a dog gone rock star!

Hey Anon Anon, autographs at 8 after the show. Takes bow.

From MW
18)I can’t drive yet but when I can I’m going hunting. Do you think the treasure will still be there in the same place?

It will be there if it hasn’t moved for some reason. f

hasn’t moved for some reason?????

So how does Fenn know it is still there if for some reason it can be moved?
Maybe that Pandora's box requires the finder to apply for an extension to keep it under the bed.

Now how can that be? There is no way in the world, if he is the only one that knows its secret spot, to say with 100% certainty that it is still there.

After seeing how these 7%ers will react, Fenn's statement that the person who finds the treasure will come forward is not believable. I have heard many, many people say they won't tell Fenn anything if they find the chest out of fear for their lives. This is a very likely possibility that Fenn has to acknowledge exists.

So how can Fenn claim this with 100% certainty? The obvious answer is there is no chest to find. The claims of cameras and singling devices is bogus because the technology didn't exist back then, and even if it did, battery life or it can be thwarted by the finder. The claim of a proxy has been refuted by Fenn and the incentive hidden inside the chest is not viable either.

So it is puzzling to me that he can make such a claim. No one has stated any plausible reason other than a hoax. Can you?

Because he knows who is close, and how close they are.
