Who Was The Zodiac Killer?
Fifty-plus years after the Zodiac Killer began his killing spree in Northern California, we are left with so many questions. Why did he write his cryptic letters? Why did he have a penchant for making ciphers? Did he want to be found out, or were his attempts to leave clues only meant to mock us? Who was the Zodiac Killer really?
The Zodiac Killer’s Name
One of the mysteries that remains unsolved is, of course, the Zodiac Killer’s identity. There are those who believe, however, that the Zodiac Killer himself gave us his name – if only we could decipher his cryptogram.
“My Name Is…” Cipher
In the letter sent on April 20th, 1970, the Zodiac opens by asking if his last cipher has been solved. Then, he gives a new one. This cipher is his shortest – only thirteen characters – and is proceeded by the words “My name is –.”
Of course, many have tried to crack this cipher over the years. It remains, however, one of the two ciphers sent by the Zodiac that are unsolved. Part of the challenge in solving such a cipher is its short length.
Would The Zodiac Really Reveal His Name?
It’s debatable at best that the Zodiac would risk revealing his identity by putting it behind a cipher. Perhaps he felt confident enough that it wouldn’t be cracked that he wasn’t worried about the risk. It seems equally as likely, however, that the cipher may only reveal a mocking answer that is not his name. Still, there are those who are determined to reveal what the cipher says.
