Did You Know The Zodiac Killer Confessed To 30+ Murders?

The Country Is Still Haunted By This Serial Killer Cold Case 

Although it’s been over 5 decades since the beginning of what became known as the Zodiac Killer’s serial murder case, the country remains haunted by merciless killings that happened in the 1960s and 1970s in Northern California. Of course, it’s little wonder that the Zodiac Killer case holds space in the minds of so many, given this case’s particulars.  

Cut Down In Their Prime By The Zodiac 

The Zodiac brutally ended the lives of several people over the course of his killing spree and mocked the police force and public alike with his cryptic ciphers. Nearly all of the Zodiac’s confirmed murder victims met their untimely deaths at a young age. Imagining the lives these victims never got to live paints a clear picture of how tragic these cases were. 

Did You Know The Zodiac Killer Confessed To 30+ Murders? 

If the only victims the Zodiac had ever killed were the 7 he is conclusively linked with, this case would be haunting enough. However, the Zodiac confessed in his letters to a total of 37 murders over the 5 years he spent terrorizing the Northern California area. Sadly, it is likely that we’ll never know exactly who these other victims were.

Top Five 340 Cipher Videos Posted on Dec 11 2020

On Dec 11, 2020, David Oranchak posted on his YouTube channel that he and two other members of an international code breaking team had cracked the infamous Zodiac Killer 340 cipher… a cipher named for its 340 cryptic characters (see below).

The 340-character cipher was mailed to the San Francisco Chronicle on Nov 8, 1969. The letter was postmarked from San Francisco, California.

According to David Oranchak, with the help of Sam Blake (Australia) and Jarl Van Eycke (Belgium), a breakthrough was made on Dec 3rd 2020 and by December 5th the team submitted the Zodiac Killer 340 cipher solution to the FBI. The solution below.

Richard Gaikowski’s Passport Info

RICHARD GAIKOWSKI’s PASSPORT INFO

In 2008, shortly after the online Zodiac masses began to learn about Richard Gaikowski, an article came to light which Gaikowski had written back in late 2003. The article detailed Gaikowski’s life in Albany, NY from when he had lived there in the late 1960s, working for the local newspaper. The article concluded with:

“I felt burned out and left The Knickerbocker News at the end of September (1968) and headed for Europe to lick my wounds.”

To an extremely vocal minority, Gaikowski’s vague “headed for Europe” claim was heralded as “proof” that Richard Gaikowski was in Europe on exactly Dec. 20, 1968, and thus could not be the Zodiac killer. However, let’s look at the facts:

*As clearly seen below, Richard Gaikowski applied for a passport in early October 1968, intending to visit the United Kingdom, France, and Spain.

*Gaikowski planned to return to the United States by December 1, 1968.
(That return date would be nearly three weeks prior to the Zodiac killer’s first San Francisco area murders.)

*APPROXIMATE DATE OF DEPARTURE: Nov. 1, 1968

*PROPOSED LENGTH OF STAY: One month

*CONCLUSION: There is literally no evidence supporting the myth that Richard Gaikowski was out of the United States in December 1968 — including his having allegedly authored a newspaper article from Ireland. So, you might wonder, how did Gaikowski’s “headed for Europe” claim somehow become unequivocal “proof” of his innocence? Simple — also see: The Man Behind The Falsehoods

Dec. 20, 2011) On this 43rd anniversary of the Zodiac’s attack on Lake Herman Road near Vallejo, Calif., I’ve added a comprehensive collection of vintage newspaper articles detailing the double murder. Click here to read and discuss.

Sept. 1, 2011) As we enter the anniversary month of the Zodiac’s 1969 attack at Lake Berryessa, I have received news of an exciting development:

————————————————–
“Mr. Voigt,

My partner, Detective Shulman, said he would let you know once we got to the Cecelia Shepard case. We have reviewed the case completely and sent all of the evidence we have to the California DNA laboratory in Richmond. We do not expect to have any results back for some time. Routinely, the turnaround time for cases like this is measured in months if not years.

REDACTED INFO

Thank you for the access to your site. It has proven valuable for vetting out some of the theories we have received. We hope you will continue to allow us to view your research.

Thank you again for your assistance!

July 5, 2011) It’s my pleasure to yet again share an exclusive and never-before-seen Zodiac case document. This time, it’s a 1971 Zodiac PERT chart, as prepared by the California Department of Justice. Until now, the chart was only available to police. One of the more interesting tidbits contained in the chart is the revelation that Zodiac rode in the front seat of victim Paul Stine’s cab, as discussed here. (For decades it was believed he sat in the back.) For discussion of the PERT chart, click here.

Feb. 19, 2011) Tonight’s episode of America’s Most Wanted featured a photo of Zodiac victim Darlene Ferrin that was first seen here at Zodiackiller.com last November. Pictured with Ferrin is a man of unknown identity. Click the image below for a huge version, and if you recognize the man, please contact me:

> A full-length documentary about the unsolved 1963 murders of possible Zodiac victims Robert Domingos and Linda Edwards is now available to watch online for free. The film, which is the work of John B. Averitt Ph.D., a former classmate of the victims, can be found at this link.


Jan. 31, 2011) At the end of January 1974, almost exactly 37 years ago, the Zodiac mailed a letter in which he seemed to claim 37 victims. It was the first Zodiac letter in nearly three years and its arrival sparked a renewed attempt by San Francisco police to catch him. To mark the occasion, I have updated the Zodiac Magazine Rack with a story about the investigation from the April 1974 issue of San Francisco Magazine.
