Detectives in Woodinville continue to piece together clues about a murder that has ties to one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in the nation.

A man's body was found in the garage of a home on Northeast 192nd Street on Friday.

Police are not releasing the victim's name yet, but are expected to Monday afternoon.

Records show the property is owned by a man, Earl Cossey, who packed parachutes used by infamous airplane hijacker D.B. Cooper more than four decades ago.

Cooper disappeared after jumping out of a plane over the Pacific Northwest in 1971.

Cossey is a former skydiving instructor and school teacher.

All Saturday afternoon, search and rescue crews combed the woods for evidence across the street from the Woodinville home - which police are now investigating as a homicide scene.

The investigation began Friday when police say they received a call from a woman saying she'd found her father dead at his home - police say the woman told them it'd been several days since she heard from him.

Neighbors in the area told KOMO yesterday they are concerned and want answers to this mystery.
