Recently I was watching some documentaries about the Zodiac Killer, who called himself simply "The Zodiac" and in seeing the letters written to the
various newspapers, I saw what people haven't picked up on. The police believe the ciphers indicate a brilliant mind.
Look at his grammar with easy mistakes.
From this website Zodiac Killer Letters
In the July 31, 1969 letter, he states "girl was lyeing on her right side". That shows the person did not have a formal education. From the same
letter, he misspells cipher as cyipher. Anyone who has any knowledge of cipher-creation or cipher code breaking would not misspell the very word for
what they are creating.
OK, so he uses Greek letters, Sailing flag symbols and Morse Code. So this makes people think the guy knew nautical signs and used Morse Code, and
then given the fact his shoes were apparently military used by Navy and Air Force, the famous 10 1/2 inch Wing Walkers. However, these shoes could
have also been bought from an Army/Navy surplus store. There was very little treadwear.
Now, if it came from the same guy, then why in the very next letter does he then spell it cipher? It can be spelled cypher or cipher, so then why
spell it different in the letters?
And in the second one, he misspells Christmas, spells it as "Christmass", well this is very interesting, as we know that the actual meaning is "The
Mass of Christ, or Christ's Mass, but the acceptable way to spell is Christmas. Then the cipher is decoded as wanting slaves for the afterlife.
These things are leading me to think there were two people, perhaps twins, which would make a lot of sense, however as there was only one man at each
crime, they were taking turns. The reason I say that is the inconsistent spellings from letter to letter. And I am leaning to the idea that they were
some types of Neo-Pagans. The symbol designed looks like the cross-hairs of a gun, however it is also reminiscent of a Celtic Cross, and this is
perhaps why they said "Christmass".
OK, third note August 4, 1969 to San Francisco Examiner, he misspells having. This is really someone who uses poor grammar and betrays the notion that
he is brilliant or well-educated. He also misspells originally as originialy. Then he writes tireing. His spelling is clearly indicative of someone
who had not received a good education for the time, because grammar and spelling were fundamentally important in those days. For these spelling
mistakes, this was not a college student for the times, as some have speculated.
In the Stine Letter, he says the police were riding "motorcicles".
I can keep going through every letter to prove this point, the man was not well-educated or did very poorly in high school. He wasn't as intellectual
or brilliant as people wanted to believe his cipher creating abilities were. As no one can say how old he was, but some witnesses indicated he might
have been middle-aged, then it might make sense that he had been a WWII soldier and used nautical symbols, and that he must have had a partner. I will
venture to guess (and this is only my guess) is that one of them was a former WWII soldier in the Pacific theater. He may have been interested in code
breaking as the occupation, however, he isn't consistent in spelling it.
And this is where I am making that guess from, in the Little List letter, he mentions tying them over ant hills and having pine needles driven under
their nails. This is exactly what happened to POWs in Bataan. My grandfather was a POW in Bataan and he did talk about this type of torture and wrote
in his memoirs about this. When the POWs were liberated, they were sent to San Francisco before being sent home.
My grandfather was first taken to Fuskishima Pine Camp #1 and liberated from Bilibid Prison. I have his service records from the National Archives
that show his various movements and the day he was liberated and the date of his mustering out in San Francisco. It makes sense to me that the guy
might just have been a POW in Bataan. He mentions two of the tortures that the Japanese soldiers inflicted. Then there is the famous Mikado musical.
He was defintely Neo Pagan, by his knowledge of Germanic and Norse, and as Zodiac, and his use of Norse runes in his Halloween letter.
In that same letter, he has N the correct way and N the incorrect way.
But then, as I was studying this whole thing, why did the killings occur at the same time as Charles Manson's terror? Then I come across a particular
letter, the Top Secret letter. In it he mentions two things...Susan Atkins, he calls her a Judas. Wait, that is what The Family called her, and
I thought it a little too convenient that the murders happened at relatively the same time. However, one could say they are not related at all,
because the Zodiac was clean cut and targeted non-hippies, without political motive as Charles Manson did. Could it just be possible that Charles
Manson and the Zodiac met in San Francisco? We might never know, but it is just a little too convenient.
Why does he even mention going to LA from San Francisco? To kill Susan Atkins and Darrel Gates? And also this, why does he call the police officers
Piggy, as The Family did?
Faint connection there, but will be investigating further.
And the reason he was never caught, the police were looking for a brilliant person. This guy was definitely not brilliant nor well-educated.
