It's not in the WP entry and I can't find it in my DBC archives, but there was one very strong piece of counter-evidence against McCoy being Cooper. It might have been that he was placed somewhere else during the original skyjacking. IIRC, there were several attempted copycats in the years immediately after Cooper, and many had the same "everyman" look as the original.
