Jackie W. It is my belief that he is the killer of all those young girls in your town, back in the 90's. I spoke to one of them that got away from him ! He was working in construction at that time, so she felt safe to get into his blue truck, with a white tool chest in the back.
That almost cost her, her life. When he pulled out a long knife from under his front seat, she jumped out of his truck and ran.
He was about 5ft 9in tall stocky, with a pot belly, curly brown salt and pepper hair. A thin mustache, scars along his jaw line, a lazy eye. He wore glass's held on by a dark band to the back of his head. He has access to many cars and trucks, so don't think that he is still driving that blue truck. The last time I saw him, he was driving a older white Astro van.

The death of his wife is a suspicious story within it's self when you compare it other information all linked this way in a story taking place now on the east coast. I don't believe his wife's death was natural causes. YES I believe Jack absolutely was THE ZODIAC KILLER.

If you would like to hear the voice of a man who has claimed to be Zodiac. It can be heard on You Tube,
(Enhanced) Voice of man claiming to be Zodiac.
In this video you will see what the real Lake Berryessa costume looked like. I know because I saw it right after the crime. It was stashed in the back seat of my car in Napa.I had no idea what it was, I thought it was an early Halloween costume.It was made in two parts, despite what was first thought.Zodiac is still alive and could still be in Vallejo? He use to hang out at Bob's Big Boy in the morning.

Not enough critical information was shared and when you get right down to it it will take money used correctly to finally close the case. Toschi and Armstrong did their level best but when you look at the transient situation of 1960s San Francisco the list of potential suspect's is staggering. DNA profiles are interesting but fingerprints and handwriting will be the ultimate barometer in solving this. For the Dept's still with active file's on this "Share Information" with other Dept's. Although it's over forty years ago this can be solved. These were Hate Crimes in the truest definition of the word. The latest subject brought up by the retired CHP officer is captivating but where is the follow-up along with a recitation of the pertinent fact's?

Based on eyewitness reports, the Zodiac was probably born in the late 1930s or early '40s....He would probably be around 85 years old today...Doubt very much he was "the killer of all those young girls....back in the '90s."

Captain Conway of V.P.D. and his investigative team solved the Zodiac case in the 1990's. Source: Zodiac Unmasked by Robert Graysmith ISBN 0425183327.

Dear Walter, Captain Conway didn't solve the zodiac case , if that happened, it would have been all over the news.

The case is still open, you can check it out on ZodiacKiller.com and go to the message board.

Just last Friday Oct 18th, "Ground Zero" did a show in Martinez Ca. trying to get the ghost of a Zodiac suspect to appear or tell the host Clyde lewis,that he was in the building.

I know Robert Graysmith, he has a story about me in that book you speak of. Art Allen was his suspect , Art Allen was proven not to be thee Zodiac through finger prints and DNA.Allen has died but the Zodiac has not.

Professor Pat, He was about 52 yrs old when the girls were murdered in Pittsburg Ca.Do you really think he was too old to kill? How old do you think Joseph Naso was when he did his last kill ? I do not believe that all serial kilers burn out when they reach 50, they stop when they die or get caught. Neither has taken place yet with the Zodiac as far as I know.

Dennis Rader was in his sixties, planning and plotting to kill again. He had at least one "project" (a potential victim he was stalking and studying) in the works when he was arrested in 2005.

And who can forget Larry Singleton, who was around 70 when he kidnapped and raped a girl and cut off her arms, leaving her for dead in a ditch?

Yeah.

Note also the recent arrest of prominent radio personality Dave Herman at age 77; he was still acquiring little girls to torture and rape.

Don't assume senior citizens are harmless. Ever. If Zodiac is still alive you can bet he's still packing mojo, even if it's not immediately apparent.

Yes Zodiackillercom has the best information on the Zodiac case, even the police check it out for information. They have a chat room and on Oct 11th 2013, the sister of the cab driver ( Paul Stine)who was killed in S.F.by Zodiac, was in the chat room. The next anniversary chat will be Dec 20th, about the first two Zodiac victims in northern Calif., Benicia,Betty Lou Jensen and David Faraday.Anyone is welcome to join in on the conversation.

Thanks Zeekeeper, for the information you provided, others need to know, that older killers do exist.

Professor Pat, you are correct about the age of Zodiac being in his 70's now. When I got away from him in Vallejo/Napa the winter of 1968, he looked about 30 yrs old at that time.The girl who got away from him in the early 90's , said that he was very strong !

Then, you didn't kill the cids on the beach in Goleta? Pity, that one's a real poser.

Diana V. I have read the proof that Jack was living in Texas durring some of the Zodiac murders and writings. He was featured in the news paper in the town that he was living in, that was Texas. To be sure it was the correct Jack,the article also mentioned the name of one of his son's.

Zeekeeper, Guess who was born in 1950 ,couldn't look like the 35 to 45yr old Zodiac in 1969 either.Unless of course he had a real hard life ? You mentioned the Santa Barbara murders in 1963.

There is a wonderful website that has written a very good report on a possable suspect named "Sandy" in that case.
Non of it is hear say, check it out, " MK-Zodiac.com " There is much more to read than just that case.

If he were born in the time frame you suggest, he COULD NOT BE 85 years today. He would be more like 75 years or younger.

My Mom was born in 1942 and she said she would see the guy who lived on Fresno Street ( the one who died) walking to school and he always scared her! She said he was creepy! Why are people always blaming the cops? Now he may have been a cop? BS he was a creepy freaky man who enjoyed killing and taunting people period!
