Really loved your point about "tying over anthills" and "pine needles under your nails" referencing a particular torture tactic used on people who
would later find refuge in San Francisco.
I do believe that the Zodiac intentionally misspelled words to put emphasis on the incorrect letter that replaced the correct letter. He was known to
even add letters to show importance ie)
ParadiCe in the Halloween letter (might have been referencing his victim Donne Lass murdered right before he send that letter who coincidentally
worked at a casino in Lake Tahoe (dice) - there also was a Paradice hotel situated not even a mile from where the victim lived and also from where she
worked. She has never been found.
Also, On the envelope for the Halloween letter he spelled Paul Avery's name as Paul AverLy. The point of this incorrect letter was to reveal the
zodiac's name. I believe it was Arthur Lee Allen who went by Leigh Allen. The Ly in "AverLy" is putting emphasis on the phonetic "Leigh".
There are better examples of why he mispelled to create a secret message when you added up the incorrect letters than what I've theorized above.
Now I don't think he was a genius, but he demonstrated great control while writing his letters and murdering... something most homicidal psychopaths
do not have. This ability to remain controlled and calm while/after killing may exist because of a background in warfare/military. However, it also
is the hallmark of someone who feels nothing and that is standard antisocial behavior so it may just be bc he was a true antisocial personality. But
because military shoes were involved and bc of the story of the Pine needles under nails and the tying up on anthills... I'm willing to bet military.
However I think maybe that is something he heard about from older military veterans as I feel he was too young to have experienced that
torture/conflict first hand.
