|On Sept. 25 and 26, 2004, Zodiackiller.com held
public gatherings at Moskowite Corners General Store/Tavern near Lake Berryessa in Napa
County, Calif. to acknowledge the 35th anniversary of the Zodiac's attack of a young
couple at the lake. The goal of the event was to share information that might help advance
the case and catch a killer.
In addition to the public gathering, a private group stayed at Lake Berryessa's Spanish
Flat Resort. Included were Zodiackiller.com Message Board members Bill Baker, Sandy Betts,
Scott Bullock, Victor Cantu, Lisa Dahlia, Angie Dangie, J. Eric Freedner, Ed Neil and Jim

beer garden at Moskowite Corners. Nick and Weeza from the message board even stopped by.

A toast and remembrance for the victims. We
all had fun, but we never forgot why we were there.
Chef Doobie tries to explain what he just

Doobie, Scott and I compete in the world's

Before we could even make a dent, Scott had finished his beer and crushed the can, thus
winning the event.

Late Sunday night, Ed, Scott, Doobie, Angie
and I decided to head to the crime scene.

Scott near the gated entrance just off Monticello Road. Because it was after hours and
closed to vehicle access, it was a long hike to the crime scene.
Ed and Angie discuss the facts.
The picnic table is located at almost the
exact spot where victims Cecelia Shepard and Bryan Hartnell were attacked.
As Ed looks on, Angie and Scott listen to the
coyotes howl. It was quite spooky out there at night. Needless to say, Zodiac didn't show
up. (Neither did BTK...)
That's a parking permit on Ed's windshield,
not a ticket. We were lucky to have made the trek to the crime scene without being stopped
by park rangers.
Scott waves goodbye at the San Francisco
airport before heading back home to Colorado. See ya next time!
