The Zodiac killer is likely long dead. If still living, he would be a man in his 70s.

just think what good the Zodiac could do today if he hunted liberals, progressives, section 8s, pantsdraggers, etc.

Confused one, You are right he is in his early 70's. But he is very much alive, and still doing his "Thing" !

Perhaps you should report this individual to the police?

No wait, the Thing, aka James Arness, died a couple of weeks ago!

Haven't any of you heard that in 2008 the FBI identified Jack Tarrance as the ZODIAC killer and possibly the same man who killed the Black Dahlia??

Don't any of you read up?

He killed people. He is bad. But I loved his style. One of the best in his medium as he never got caught. I hope he is an old man. Would love to hear his story before they gave him the needle.

Wow! How do you know? Give us all the details please! It sounds like there are current victims if that is what you mean by his "thing" and if so, who are they? If you mean something else, please tell.

I myself do read, and I can tell you that Jack T. was never proven to be thee Zodiac. Funny how when people watch TV ,and see a program about someones step father being the Zodiac, they take it as the truth.Some still believe that Arthur Leigh Allen was the Zodiac. He was also proven not to be, by DNA and finger prints.Yet people only remember the part that he was thought to be the Z.
When the Zodiac is caught, there will be no doubt. TV and every news paper will have it on the front page ! The story of how he was caught ,will continue for many weeks if not yrs.

Sad but true there have been many females killed by a man who I believe is the Zodiac .To give you a short rundown : In 1968 someone stole my coil wire out of my car. That night some of my male friends fixed my car, I then drove home to Napa. I noticed that I was being followed , so I did my best to lose him. I thought I had, when I pulled up to the front of my home , there he was. I saw his face and to this day run into him from time to time. It was soon after that night in 68 ,I read about the first two in Benica being shot. Then two more in Vallejo in July 69. The boy Mike M.told about the killer and his car. It was described exactly like the man who had followed me. This man has shot at me , tried to force me off the road many times. The police can't do anything about it ,because I was not hurt by him. I will continue this below.

This same man would come into my work and watch me almost every day back in 1987- 1990, then would follow me as I drove home some 47 miles ! Enough about me. On Easter Sunday 1988 a pretty young woman in her early 30's, came in for a cocktail. She and I talked for about a half hour.We spoke about how we were both dressed almost alike. She wore a pink blouse , black skirt, black heals. I had everything the same, except my blouse was lavender.The bartender told me that he was worried about a male customer who was glaring at us as we talked.I was told to make sure the young woman got to her car ok when she left. She chose to leave while I was waiting on someone else. The glaring man left at the same time. Her body was found the next day on 11th ST. Oakland Ca. She didn't have any ID on her, so police described what she had on. I was pretty sure it was the woman I talked to the day before , I didn't know her name. Continued below

A few days later at my work, someone put several news paper clippings neatly folded and stapled together, on top of my cocktail tray. On top of that was a quarter . It had writing on it in indelible ink. On one side was the number 9 that took up the whole face of the quarter. The other side was a circle and a cross, it also took up the whole quarter.When I saw this I of course got a cold chill. I had known for some time by then, that someone was playing games with me, and wanted me to believe he was the Zodiac.The number 9 was the 9th letter of the alphabet ( I )the Z logo was of course the Zodiac's sign. So who ever left all of this for me, wanted me to believe he was the Zodiac, and that he killed the young woman that he followed out on Easter Sunday. Her name was Victoria Bell, you can check out this information, and see I am telling the truth. Do I think this man is the Zodiac ? Yes I do, proving it is very hard to do.Sure I could be wrong, but being he is the same man from Vallejo who followed me in 68 ,with a car just like the killers car, the odds are in my favor I think.
In the early 90's Zodiac seemed to start writing again . It seemed his name came up every few months ? There were many young females killed in the Antioch/Pittsburg area. continued below

One of the girls was a friend of my daughters, her name was Andria Ingersol( not sure of that spelling )My daughter had been bothered over the yrs, by the same man who liked playing games with me. She dropped Andria off and they were going to meet up in a hour or so. Andria was killed in that short time. There was word on the streets that her killer was killing many prostitutes. I had taken a picture of my suspect in Aug.1990. I made many copies, and took them to where I found out the hookers went every Saturday for their methadone. I was talking to a few of them when one saw the picture I was holding. She screamed : Thats the killer !!!! She told me about getting into his truck one afternoon about 2:30. She said she felt safe because he was a working man ? He looked like he worked construction. She said she showed him where she took her "dates", but he didn't like that spot. She then got a bad feeling about him and said she would make that date some other time. The man pulled out a long knife from under the front seat , and fled with her in the truck. Lucky for her he had to stop at red light, she jumped out. He tried to grab her , but ended up with her slipping out of the jacket she had on , he also got a handful of her dark curly hair.She told me that he came after a few more times, waring different clothes and driving different cars. The only way she knew it was him, was that he had a lazy eye. He was about 5ft9 190 #, brown curly hair with some grey,a thin mustache, glass's. Continued below

OMG! This is awful. Can you please describe exactly what you/she meant by a "lazy" eye? Would this be something that most ordinary people would notice about him right away? Do you know what color his eyes are?

After giving out his picture to some of the girls, to protect them from him. A few more were killed ,"someone" mailed me one of those pictures back. No return address, a upside down stamp.
None of the girls had my address.
On highway 4 late 80's early 90's some one else was being forced off the road . She was also a waitress, Theresa Klock/Brown was forced off of the highway, then she was stabbed many times, left next to her wrecked car.She lived in Antioch for only a few months. She and her family had moved from Lake Tahoe. Then there is Maria Weidhoffer (not sure of that spelling)
She was walking a trail at Tilden Park behind UC Berkeley. This was not like any known Zodiac murders , yet I had a gut feeling it could be my suspect.He had given me clues to make me think he did "some" of the trailside murders. I went with my daughter in law to that trail to see if I could find any clues. The first one was written on a roadside metal barrier, on the way to the crime scene. It said : Confusion prevails !
I also knew that Z liked to use phone booths, so I went to the one close to the crime scene. On the walls of the booth was written : Suicide is Death, and "Satan saves". The killer was a smoker, I found the crime scene, and saw many cigarettes in a pile, as if he returned there many times. I took pictures so I could show the park police where I found everything. I also spoke to a old man who walked that trail with a cane. He said he believed he saw the killer ! He said the man was very mean and that the man went out of his way to bump into him. He said he saw the man everyday until the girls body was found and then never saw him again. He describe someone who looked like my suspect. All of these murders are still unsolved, they may or may not be my suspect. One more thing before I close. A friend of mine, who helped me to get my suspects license plate number om Jan 19 88. Was stabbed 8 months later on my birthday and left for dead.Most everyone who has tried to help me has been bothered by phone calls with only the sound of breathing at the other end, others were shot at.So even if I am wrong and this man is not the Zodiac, he is just as dangerous.I hope this helped with your question ?

I hope you saved these articles and the quarter. Have you gone to LE with this information? If so, do you know what if anything they have done? Has the photo of your poi ever been released to the public? If not, why not?

Sadly, LE'S all over are overworked and have budget problems but too often they ignore good tips (lol) and the one Mr. Cheapskate left you might have some fingerprints. How do you know it was invisible ink if it was invisible?

LOL, Sorry I didn't mean invisible ink, it was indelible ink. Things like that, to police who don't know much about the Zodiac, would only make me look nuts. His picture can be seen on Zodiac message boards, like Zodiac Vortex. If you have a problem getting to that site, the links to these sites for his picture, can be found at " Zodiackiller.com " . The name I was told for the picture was Larry Kane, so it will be under that name. Turns out that VPD were wrong when they told me his name was Larry Kane ,from Lake Tahoe NV. Kane died this past yr, I have seen the man after Kane died. It just happens that they did look very much alike, except Kane was much older than my "secret admirer" ( That is what he called himself , once when he called me )Most of the time he won't talk, just breaths into the phone. The only words that I believe were a threat was : Bye- bye to you too baby ! He no longer calls me baby, now I am a bitch ! Thats ok, most bitches are powerful women. It will be a powerful woman to bring him down.

Yes he has one eye that moves around ( Like Marty Feldman the actor)That eye lid also droops a bit. He is slightly paralyzed on that side of his face ( the right side I believe ?)His other eye squints a bit. So yes ,if you were to look at his face for more than a few seconds, you would notice his lazy eye. His eyes are hazel, his teeth ( if he still has them), in 1988 they were stained a lot from tobacco. He has pock marks on his right side of his cheek and chin. On that same side he has a Z like scar on his chin. A "L" shaped scar on the left side of his face.Lake Berryessa victim Bryan Hartnell, mentioned that the killer spoke with a drawl, but not a southern drawl. This man has that drawl. its caused from the slightly paralyzed face and mouth.So now we have a man who talks like one witness said he did. Has the same scars like Kathleen Johns said he had, along with a band that held his glass's on. Curly brown hair that victim Mike Mageau said he had. The light brown mid size car that followed me in 68, like the Blue Rock Springs killer had. Too many coincidences, for it not to be Zodiac. You have my permission to forward all of this to any LE, that you feel would be interested. I am willing to take any test ,to show I am not making any of this up.I sure hope he is not reading any of this !He definitely has issues with me for what ever reason ? Could it be because I got away from him in 68 ? Geez he sure holds a grudge !
