I am planning an event for a friend, with dozens of guests. We will be outside. My friend wants to be tossed up in the air with a parachute.

Recent news story suggest that the FBI may have a new suspect in the DB Cooper hijacking case from 40 years ago. Why is the FBI spending any time on this? Isn't there a statue of limitations on this?
