He was not Allen ! He was proven by DNA and finger prints not to be Zodiac.The Zodiac is still alive and he is still doing his thing. He has kept his word that he would not tell anyone when and who he has killed. I know of a few young girls who have gotten away from him after Allen died. Zodiac is not a large man inspite of what you have been lead to believe.

He was Richard Gaikowski because Tom Voigt said so! Nobody goes against what Tom says or they are kicked off his site... It's Richard Gaikowski! Only Tom's circumstantial evidence is valid! Tom Voigt says so! so does his beer....

sue cyr, If you are thinking that Art Allen was the Zodiac. Please remember he was proven not to be Zodiac. The Zodiac is not dead,"yet".
He is still killing, but not writing the police or news papers about when or who he kills.

He has never stopped, he just changed his mo, like he said he would. That may have been the only time he told the truth.

DGH from Pittsburgh was talking about a teacher who was a Zodiac suspect. He said-

"He was D.G.H school teacher"

What does DGH stand for? Anyone know the school?

The previous commentators seem to be omitting information that would specifically identify this teacher, other than the initials DGH.

Donald Gene Harden was the teacher at North Salinas High School in 1969.

Donald Gene Harden and Bettye June Harden solved the 408-symbol cipher of the Zodiac.

Donald Gene Harden is NOT the Zodiac.

Dear Folks, For the past 4 years, I have studied the events surrounding the cold cases in South Eastern Kentucky. I will usually do this at the onset of Fall, for a month or do. So far, I have been able to do the goegraphical profiling and personality profiling of these three cases. It has brought me to have a gut intuition of a person that may be a person of interest in these cases. There is a private citizen group, whose aim is to keep cold cases alive, and to identify missing persons cold cases. The founder is a man that has successfully identified the remains of some cold cases here in Kentucky. His name is Todd Matthews, and he has been a guest interview on some tv programs. Todd Matthews websites can be viewed at the links beow.

I am also submitting the background of these cases. There are two unsolved homicides and one missing persons unsolved case.

The conjecture from the local residents, claim that they are the result of drug deals gone bad, corrupt local businessmen, and so on. I have not seen where these cases have ever taken another consideration of possible serial homicides

Background on the Ky cases can be viewed at:

I believe that you would be one of the few resources that could help. If you have any advice, or websites that could be used as a means or resource to further amature investigation, please reply to this thread on this thread;

What was Leigh like as a teacher?
he was very nice to us, it was in 66, he was kind and fatherly,
but after he got fired from teaching he was not allowed to continue with the after school trampoline,
we went to his house once but he said he can no longer do the training with children.
then he got a job as a janitor and he was the meanest janitor...
we played at the school hall ways everyday on our skates,
and played ditch, a form of hide n seek.
but we could no longer play at the school after that.
although he never tried to molest us,
none of the janitors were like that,
they were all real nice though,

Well tommy, you really get around, I have read your clues before on a Z site. You also didn't mention the Sugar Shack or the Bucket of Blood on Broadway.
Those of you who are thinking about a school teacher being the Zodiac, you might be right. Remember the threat that the Z made to a Martinez school teacher? That teacher worked in Richmond ca.
Zodiac is still very much alive ,and enjoys reading about himself. He is very worried about getting caught ,if he writes any more letters , about who he has killed lately. He can't stop killing. So don't give up on looking for him in the bay area.

The case is solved! We have sent hand-prints, mugshots, hand-writing, pictures of him, his home, his cars and he himself.... Don't ask me why it takes SFDOJ so long to do the print check.They have had the information for a good 4 months now.... It's done!

Good luck Kevin B. There are at least two Zodiac's working in tandem,(DOJ knows this) you may have found one. But I have the other one.I know you have done a lot of work on your poi, and it has been a long time for SFDOJ not to tell you something.
That is something they have done to me as well. I think you should forget what was done to you on those message boards, and continue posting. They can be very cruel, and I am sorry they treated you that way. Don't let them get the best of you,its not over until its over.The Fat lady hasn't sung yet.

Thank you Kevin B. That is very nice of you to say.
I just went back through the posts here, and noticed that "Original V Town" Started posting Feb 08, and stopped right after I started to post on May 29th 08.
He could be my poi ? The very first post on this site, was written by someone who wrote very much like Zodiac. That is what got me started , he also stopped when I asked him some questions. We know Z is a coward, but geez some small female can scare him off a site that has no idea who he really is ?

Tain, if you really know and won't tell, think about all of the people you are putting at risk of this sick killer .You are allowing him to continue on with doing his "thing".

I think the Zodiac was not just one person. The Zodiac was created to cover something else up.

I agree with you ! I worked in Vallejo during the Zodiac crime time, and lived in Napa. As a waitress you hear things that customers talk about. It is as if they want to confess everything to you . There was a counterfeit/ drugs/ chop shop (Car)ring, going on at that time. Someone I knew named Don Porter, was in that ring, he told me that two of the main guys in the ring came from Chicago. The only name he mentioned to me was Dee in Vallejo, which was Darlene Ferrin's nick name.The man he lived with in Vallejo on Evan's street, fit the look of Zodiac to a tee.I don't remember his name, but he did like to play the piano. I believe that Darlene was killed to shut her up about that ring. She was spending a lot of money , counterfeiters don't like that , they want to keep a low profile so not to draw attention to them.I have a copy of the deed to Darlene's home, she paid a little over $9,000 for that house on Virginia street.Her sister told me she felt Darlene had phony money, that the sister was at first being paid for baby sitting in small change and then brand new $20's. That one of the packages the stranger left for Darlene was wrapped in plain paper , the size of money and flexible like money would be. I feel that if VPD would look into her background, they would see she got into something she couldn't get out of and was killed for it.Don Porter took the fall for all of the others involved in that ring, but if the secret service was doing their job they would have to have some other names in that ring I would hope ? I think Z was the main man in that ring.
