One less crook for the cops to catch
Ex-Black panther, hijacker dies at 75
Mr. Brent was still a fugitive when he died, sought by U.S. law enforcement officials for his June 1969 hijacking of TWA flight No. 154 to Cuba. The plane, with 76 passengers aboard, was bound for New York from San Francisco. At the time of the hijacking, Mr. Brent was facing charges for his role in a 1968 Panther shootout with San Francisco police. One police officer was severely wounded but later recovered.
