It is over 50 years old. Would it finally be resolved? This is what a group of 40 independent investigators (journalists, soldiers …) affirms. According to them, the “zodiac killer”, which plagued the San Francisco area in the late 1960s, is one Gary Francis Poste. However, the police never caught him and this man died in 2018.
For its part, the FBI specifies that the case remains unsolved, notes the San Francisco Chronicle. the local media had been the recipient of letters sent by the murderer, accused of killing five people and injuring two others in California.
The investigative team, who calls themselves Case Breakers, defend their theory on the basis of several factors, “notably the similarity between the photos of their suspect and a robot portrait of the Zodiac made by the police in 1969, in particular with what appear to be identical scars on the forehead, and on anagrams which they claim reveal the name of their suspect “.
They also claim to have proof that their suspect killed Cheri Jo Bates, a woman murdered in Riverside in 1966 whom some have attributed to the Zodiac. But that theory was denied in August by Riverside police.
