Zodiac Killer’s cipher ’puzzle’ solved after 51 years

Zodiac Killer’s cipher ’puzzle’ solved after 51 years

A team of volunteer code-breakers has solved a mysterious cipher sent more than 50 years ago to a newspaper by the serial killer nicknamed the Zodiac Killer. The Zodiac Killer, who was active between 1968 and 1969, sent a series of letters to the SF Chronicle newspaper. Part of the coded message read:’I am not afraid of the gas chamber because it will send me to paradise.’

Apparently if you solve the ciphers his identity is in there. At least thats what he used to say to the cops in his letters. They said theyre keeping stuff hush hush for now since its still an active case, but there are 4 ciphers and i think this only makes 2 that are solved now.

Well, that's nice that two of his encrypted letters have been solved, but it would be a whole lot nicer if the FedBois could solve his *identity* instead.

How many ciphers remain unsolved? Dude is likely to be elderly if still alive... Lol really I was born in 69. If dude was 18 at the time, he would be, yup, 69.

This was always a fascinating case. Whoever was the Zodiac Killer was obviously highly intelligent as it's taken so long to decipher his codes. He's probably dead now but who knows? Finchers' Zodiac is a masterpiece of filmmaking, well worth a look...

I remember studying these in great deal at university when doing my Forensic Linguistics module. The language differed so much in some of them but I was the only one who committed they were definitely the same person.

Ted Cruz would probably get off easy from these killings; not because of his connections, but because he was 2 years old when he started his killings...
