    SUSPECT SKETCHES

    SECOND SKETCH OF "SANDY" SANTA BARBARA COUPLES MURDERER SUSPECT 1963
    SONOMA COUNTY ZODIAC SKETCH 1975
    TED KACZYNSKI 1978
    ORIGINAL NIGHT STALKER SKETCH 1978






    You can see that on the basis of the suspect sketches it cannot be ruled out that they are all one man. For Santa Barbara, Percy/Bricca, Zodiac and EAR/ONS, the basic physical description of the suspects in all of these cases MATCHES AND GENERALLY MATCH KACZYNSKI - 5'8' - 5'10" tall, 150 to 170 pounds, dirty sandy blonde to light brown hair (slight reddish tinge), thin but wiry and athletic build, size 9 1/2 to 10 1/2 shoe print, blue eyes, large hawk like nose, almond shaped eyes, elongated upper lip and prissy lower lip, large forehead, prominent jaw, jutting chin, wears sneakers/military shoes/military boots, often wears plaid or checkered pattern shirts, wears military jacket, ties nautical knots, ties victims with pre cut rope or shoelaces, sometimes wears black reading glasses as a disguise.

    The ages generally fit as well - with the Santa Barbara killer described as 18 to 25 in 1963, the Percy murder suspect as 18 to 25 in 1966, the Zodiac as 25 to 35 in 1969 and the Original Night Stalker as 28 to 35 in the late seventies.

    Ricardo Gomez has an excellent research article at his website www.mk-zodiac.com .

    He starts off by giving the most complete and detailed version I have yet seen of the various productions of "The Most Dangerous Game", as a story, and in movies, TV and radio shows, and how it may have influenced the Zodiac. And Arthur Leigh Allen in particular. Very interesting.

    See it here: http://www.mk-zodiac.com/TheMostDang...iacPlayed.html

    Then he discusses something even more interesting, and something that has until now not been mentioned as a possible influence on Zodiac. A movie based on "The Most Dangerous Game" that inspired a real life activity.

    It comes from a Time magazine article of May 1966 called "Games: Homicide on Campus".

    It concerns a fad that college kids were doing in 1966, called the "Hunt Game". Players were Hunters, Victims and Directors, and were scored for coming up with elaborate methods of (simulated) killings of each other.

    It appears that in 1966 it was played in Southern California (where Cheri Jo Bates would be murdered in October 1966) and elsewhere across the country, but that a particular hotbed of activity was the Chicago area. It appears one Chicago area player sent a (fake) University of Chicago letter on (fake) poisoned paper that told its victim at the end:

    THIS IS YOUR HUNTER SPEAKING. YOU ARE NOW DEAD.

    Ricardo points out the similarity of this to THIS IS THE ZODIAC SPEAKING.

    Fascinating!

    Also, the Bates Confession letter writer (almost certainly the Zodiac) said BUT THAT WILL NOT STOP THE GAME. I have always thought of this as a reference to the movie mentioned above. But in the story and film, it is MAN that is called the "most dangerous GAME", in the context that lions and bears are "game." And this is how Zodiac used it in the 408 Code - 'man is the most dangerous game'. In the story/movie/Zodiac Code, the activity itself is called "HUNTING". Not a "GAME".

    So could the mention in the Bates letter of "THE GAME" be a refernce to this rather morbid college craze which was taking place in Southern California and most heavily in Chicago?

    Of course Zodiac suspect Ted Kaczynski was from Chicago, while other Zodiac suspects either had Southern California ties or Midwest ties. But Ted Kaczynski had recorded 1966 as the year he decided to "REALLY KILL" everyone he hated, which included couples, women, big businessmen and scientists.

    There is a lot of other interesting information presented by Ricardo at his site.

    But one area in particular interested me more than others.

    Ricardo notes that this game was played at several Illinois colleges, like the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Chicago. He then mentions that there were several interesting and unsolved murders that took place in the Chicago area in 1966. He starts with the murder of Valerie Percy, and links to my post at the www.unazod.com message board about the topic. Thanks Ricardo.

    Valerie Percy was the daughter of Charles Percy, the CEO of a major high tech company and the Republican nominee for US Senate (he won in November 1966). In September of 1966, Valerie was brutally murdered in her bedroom of the Percy mansion in Kenilworth, a wealthy suburb of Chicago. She was beaten in the head with an object and stabbed repeatedly. In terms of sheer brutality, her murder rivals that of fellow college students Cheri Jo Bates (killed one month later) and Betsy Aardsma (killed 3 years and 2 months later).

    Another poster here, Cimm, did some great research and had clued me in to the Percy case as a possible early crime of the Zodiac or the EAR/ONS. And we have explored possible connections between the Percy murder and the murder one week later of someone she knew, Linda Bricca, along with her daughter and Monsanto chemical engineer husband in suburban Cinncinatti.

    The Bricca bodies were found, bound and stabbed, on September 27, 1966. Three years to the day before the murder of Celia Shpeherd by the Zodiac. A month later one of the country's top computer experts, Dr. Sims, was killed along with his family in Florida. Weeks later the daughter of an employee of the Naval Weapons facility, Cheri Jo Bates, is killed in Riverside, California on October 30, 1966.

    Ricardo found some cases I had never heard of, that could possibly be related to some or all of the killing in this series.

    He notes the January 31, 1966, attack on the 23 year old daughter of professor Herbert Lawrence Anderson of the University of Chicago, a famous nuclear physicist. She was attacked on the University of Chicago campus, and survived. She was attacked near Washington Park.

    On June 30, 1966, Sharon Bubes was attacked by a blunt object in her home in Evanston, Illinois (home of Northwestern University). Because of matching MO, weapon and appearance factors, police thought the bedroom invader attacker of Ms. Bubes was the bedroom killer of Valerie Percy in nearby Kenilworth just three months later.

    Police released sketches of the Bubes/Percy suspect. I have noted the basic similarity to sketches in the Domingos/Edwards, Zodiac and Aardsma cases. All depict young men, with short hair cuts, similar height and weight, similar basic face structure, similar nose/eyes/ears/lips, with large black reading glasses. All also have a basic similarity to various looks of Ted Kaczynski.

    Left to right: Domingos/Edwards suspect "Sandy"; Bubes/Percy suspect; Zodiac sketch; Aardsma suspect.



    --------------------------


    Ricardo also notes two other 1966 deaths with college and Chicago or Midwest ties:

    October 17, 1966: University of Chicago Divinity Professor Robert Warren Spike, bludgeoned to death at the United Christian Center in Columbus, Ohio, the day after he had dedicated the building.

    May 23, 1966: Ohio State University Aeronautics and Astronautical Engineering Professor Loren E. Bollinger, shot to death with a .25 pistol, he was a newspaper columnist and a researcher in rockets and nuclear devices.

    Great job by Ricardo in finding this information and giving us new leads in the Zodiac case! Thanks Ric.

    -----------------------

    So lets us look at this incredible eruption of violence which took place in 1966, starting in the Chicago area, spilling over into neighboring Ohio, then perhaps reaching as far as Florida and eventually Riverside, California. Incredibly, all of the murders have ties to either college-education and/or the high tech worlds of computers-weapons:

    January 31, 1966: Attack on the 23 year old daughter of Professor Herbert Lawrence Anderson of the University of Chicago, a famous nuclear physicist. She was attacked on the University of Chicago campus.

    October 17, 1966: University of Chicago Divinity Professor Robert Warren Spike, killed by blunt object in Columbus, Ohio, home of Ohio State University.

    May 23, 1966: Ohio State University Aeronautics and Astronautical Engineering Professor Loren E. Bollinger, shot to death with a .25 pistol, he was a newspaper columnist and a researcher in rockets and nuclear devices.

    June 30, 1966: Sharon Bubes was attacked by a blunt object in her home in Evanston, Illinois, home of Northwestern University.

    September 18, 1966: College student Valerie Percy killed by blunt object and knife in suburban Chicago, Illinois. Father is Senate candidate and CEO of high tech company Bell & Howell, which made cameras, had defense industry contracts and made early computers & business machines.

    September 27, 1966: Bodies of the Bricca family are found bound and murdered, by knife, in Suburban Cinncinatti, Ohio. Jerry Bricca is a chemical engineer for high tech company Monsanto, and evidence and witnesses state that Linda Bricca knew Valerie Percy.

    October 17, 1966: University of Chicago Divinity Professor Robert Warren Spike, killed by blunt object in Columbus, Ohio, home of Ohio State University.

    October 22, 1966: Dr. Sims and his family are bound and murdered, by knife and gun, in North Florida. Dr. Sims works for the Florda Education Department and is a top national expert in the high tech field of computers.

    October 30, 1966: College student Cheri Jo Bates is killed in Riverside, California, outside the college library, in what most police and researchers think is a Zodiac crime. Her father works at the Naval Weapons facility.
    -------------------


    Thanks again to Ricardo for his great research which has opened up NEW areas of discovery and clues in the Zodiac case, the possible influence of the "HUNT GAME" on Zodiac and the perhaps related (or unrelated) unsolved "Midwest College Murders" and/or "Nationwide High Tech Killings" of 1966.

    Off topic: I wonder if the Hunt Game is the inspiration for the opening activity of the antagonist in Mario Puzo's The Fourth K. In that novel, the antagonist, a college student, participated in a game where a group of students served as bodyguards for an effigy of the president, a Kennedy descendant, and a group of students were assassins tasked with hunting down and getting a clear shot at the effigy to 'kill' it while it was a banquet. Puzo in his novel described the game as being popular at college campuses across the country.

    Victim: Nancy Bennallack
    Location: Sacramento County
    Date of Occurrence: October 25, 1970

    Synopsis:

    Nancy Bennallack was a 27 year old court reporter in Sacramento County. Nancy lived alone in an upstairs apartment at Arden Way and Bell Avenue. Nancy was last seen alive by her fiancÚ on 10-25-1970 at approximately 11:30p.m. When Nancy did not show up for work the following morning, Nancy's co-worker telephoned her son to check on Nancy. The friend's son went to the apartment manager for assistance and he used a pass key to unlock the front door. Nancy was found murdered in her apartment.


    Victim: Judith Hakari
    Location: Sacramento County
    Date of Occurrence: March 7, 1970

    Synopsis:

    Judith Hakari was a 23 year old nurse at Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento. Judith was last seen leaving work on March 7, 1970 at 11:30p.m. Judith never made it to her apartment. Her vehicle was found in her apartment complex parking lot at Alta Arden and Markston Way. It is believed she was abducted from the parking lot. On April 25, 1970 Judith's body was discovered by hikers in a shallow grave in a rural area near Weimar in Placer County approximately 40 miles from her residence. Judith was murdered and her body left in this remote area.


    THE ZODIAC KILLER WAS CONSIDERED A SUSPECT IN THESE TWO SACRAMENTO MURDERS, AND IN THE POSSIBLY RELATED CASE OF NURSE DONNA LASS, KILLED NEAR LAKE TAHOE, NEVADA, ABOUT TWO HOURS DRIVE EAST OF SACRAMENTO.



    The suspect description in the Bennallack murder was: "Glen Campbell Haircut" (meaning a large parted wave?), about 25 years old, 5' 9", 170 pounds.

    Shot and wounded by the Zodiac on 7/4/69, Michael Mageau thought Zodiac was 25 to 30 years old and 160 pounds, with short hair but sort of combed up in a "pompadour". Probable Zodiac attempted abduction victim Kathleen Johns also put Zodiac at 160 pounds. In this time period, Kaczynski was 5' 9" - 5' 10", 150 to 160 pounds, 27 when Mageau was shot and 28 when Bennallack was murdered.

    Also, the sketch of the Bennallack suspect bears a very interesting similarity to the "Napa Composite", the man seen hiding behind a tree and spying on the college girls at Lake Berryessa before the Zodiac attack there that same day, and thought by police to perhaps be the Zodiac. One girl thought this man was around 28, another thought 30 to 35. Also, the sketch of the Bennallack suspect and the Napa Composite bears a similarity to one of the many looks of Kaczynski, his darker hair, parted in a big wave look.

    Two Photographs of Bearded Ted Kaczynski vs. Sketch of Suspect in Murder of Sacramento Nurse Judith Hakari.

    Hakari is considered a probable victim of the Zodiac, and police thought her killer also probably murdered Sacramento resident Nancy Bennallack (in a ONS like home invasion attack) and Nevada resident Donna Lass, both also regarded as probable Zodiac victims.

    The day after Bennallack was killed, but before it hit the newspapers, the Zodiac sent a Halloween Card to the SF Chronicle claiming a new 14th victim.

    And the Zodiac sent in a postcard strongly suggesting he killed Lass.

    The bearded Ted Kaczynski bears an obvious strong similarity to the bearded suspect in these probable Zodiac murders.

    The one man at the scene of the Riverside campus library the night of the murder of Cheri Jo Bates on October 30, 1966, who could not be accounted for or found, was a bearded young man.











    Ted Kaczynski compared to suspect in Hakari murder.

    Hilburn was probably killed by Phillip Arthur Thompson, the man recently convicted for the murder of Betty Cloer.

    Police at the time thought that one man may have killed Hakari, Bennallack and Donna Lass - South Lake Tahoe is right across the state line from Sacramento, and Lass, like Hakari, was a nurse.

    IF - I said IF - Zodiac did do the Hakari and Bennallack murders, that shows he was making a transition from attacks in public places to HOME INVASION attacks in SACRAMENTO. Thus, we see a possible path from Zodiac to EAR/ONS, who did HOME INVASION attacks in SACRAMENTO.

    And if Robert Graysmith and Sonoma Sheriff Striepke were right, and Zodiac did at least one or more of the Sonoma murders, well, those murders show an increasing element of sexuality. From none, to bodies found nude and bound, to bodies showing signs of molestation, to bodies showing signs of rape.

    In his journal in 1966, Ted Kaczynski wrote that he wanted to kill "couples", and also "bigshots" like scientists or big businessmen, and specifically mentioning "POLICE" AND "GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS".

    INTERESTING FACT - IN THIS POSSIBLE ZODIAC LETTER OF 12/16/69 THE THREAT IS MADE TO TAKE "GOVERNMENT LIFE" AND "COPS" AS WELL AS KILL 9 IN SACRAMENTO. NANCY BENNALLACK WAS A GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE IN SACRAMENTO, SHE WAS A COURT REPORTER. HAKARI AND LASS WERE NURSES, SO BOTH WERE PUBLIC SERVICE, AND I THINK HAKARI WORKED AT A GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL. LATER ZODIAC WOULD HINT THAT HE KILLED SFPD OFFICER RICHARD RADETICH IN JUNE 1970.






    THE SUSPECT DESCRIPTION IN THE BENNALLACK MURDER WAS A "GLEN CAMPBELL HAIRCUT". AND IT APPEARS THE BEARDED HAKARI SUSPECT ALSO HAD A "GLEN CAMPBELL HAIRCUT". WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? LETS LOOK AT SOME MIRROR IMAGE PICTURES OF GLEN CAMPBELL AT THE TIME. HE HAD A LARGE PARTED WAVE THAT CAME DOWN OVER HIS FOREHEAD ALMOST TO HIS EYES AT TIMES - ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE STYLE THAT TED KACZYNSKI HAD AT THAT TIME.

    FROM MORF:

    I obtained a new article regarding the Domingos/Edwards case. I say new, because I havent seen it before. The interesting things in this article are as follows:

    * Teens reported being shot at in the area of the shack shortly before the murders

    * For the first time, I see mention of possible real names of "Sandy"- may have been WILLIAM CARR or ROBERT COFFMAN, and he may have lived in the Oakland/San Fran area. Also mentions he was STOCKY (Z-like?). The stocky part threw me for a loop because his sketches that I have seen, made him look skinny.

    *Also, at the time of the murders, multiple girls were "missing" around the area of the murders( I did not research any further to see if they were found alive)

    All and all, an interesting article. I would like to hear some thoughts & ideas, and see if anyone read this article before. The article was from 6/7/63, but I forget the name of the paper, Santa Barbara or Lompoc area paper.




    AK: Great find Morf. This article confirms the significant finds by Ricardo and that "Sandy" was indeed an object of police interest.

    I would be interested to find out if the missing girls turned up. Apparently Pamela Youngblood from Vandenberg AFB did turn up OK. I wonder about the others.

    I think Sandy signed the name "William Carr" in the motel desk book. I am not sure where "COFFMAN" was used. My instinct tells me that both were pure aliases with no connection to the real name of the person, and that CARR may just be a play on CAR, and COFFMAN on COFFIN MAN.

    --------------------

    1963 Santa Barbara Couples Murder Domingos and Edwards - First EAR/ONS Crime?

    June 1963, a young couple in Santa Barbara, on the beach near the Gaviota Tunnel, were murdered. The murder scene is just minutes from where the Goleta Murders would take place a decade and a half later in 1979 and 1981. The prime suspect in the Goleta Murders is the EAR/ONS. Could the Domingos and Edwards murders in Santa Barbara in 1963 be the first crimes of the EAR/ONS?

    THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE 1963 SANTA BARBARA BEACH MURDERS OF DOMINGOS AND EDWARDS AND THE ORIGINAL NIGHT STALKER

    Similarities between the Santa Barbara beach attack in 1963 and many of the crimes of the Original Night Stalker include:

    * Couples are targeted.

    * Attacker ordering the female to tie the male.

    * The killer used complex nautical knots

    * The killer put blanket over the bodies or faces of the victims.

    * The killer leaves burnt wood matches at the scene. EAR/ONS also beat a couple to death with a WOOD log, and the 63 killer put bodies in WOOD shack.

    * Possible Air Force connection - EAR/ONS may have killed USAF Sgt. and his wife and many other clues pointing to Mather AFB connection. Domingos and Edwards were killed with .22 bullets consistent with batch numbers for sale at PX of nearby Vandenberg AFB, also Travis AFB and March AFB. Detectives concluded if bullets were obtained locally, then they were probably purchased at Vandenberg AFB, as no other local outlets had those batch numbers. Killer may have had USAF ties or created a false trail to make detectives think he did.

    * Seems killer came prepared with gun, knife and pre-cut rope.

    * Sexual element present - EAR/ONS did rapes and sexual bondage of victims, 63 killer cut off bikini tops and bottom of female to expose body.

    * Some evidence to suggest posing or moving of bodies in EAR/ONS cases, 63 killer placed female body on top of male.

    * 1963 attacks and 1979-1981 attacks are minutes away from each other in the Goleta, Santa Barbara County area.


    To read more about the suspect in these 1963 murders, "SANDY", see here: http://www.mk-zodiac.com/sandy1.html

    NOTE: To those who may have contact with the Santa Barbara County Detectives who just re-opened the investigation into the 1979 and 1981 Goleta Murders. back in 1962, the SBCSD recovered FINGERPRINTS from a car that "SANDY" was in, and these prints could not be matched to any other occupants. They may well be the fingerprints of "SANDY", the lead suspect in these 1963 murders. I know that many fingerprints were recovered from EAR/ONS crime scenes. The prints from the EAR/ONS/Goleta crime scenes could be compared to these 1963 possible prints of suspect "SANDY". And the 1963 prints could be entered in modern computer databases for comparisons with convicted felons.

    This is the first wanted poster for "SANDY". The article above quotes police as saying the age for "SANDY" was guesed as 17 to 20 in 1963, meaning he could have been 29 to 32 in 1975, which generally fits the right age range for the VR/EAR/ONS. The age, height, weight and blue eyes also generally fit both "SANDY" and VR/EAR/ONS. And Ted Kaczynski.



    On June 30, 1966, Sharon Bubes was attacked by a blunt object in her home in Evanston, Illinois (home of Northwestern University). Because of matching MO, weapon and appearance factors, police thought the bedroom invader attacker of Ms. Bubes was the bedroom killer of Valerie Percy in nearby Kenilworth just three months later.

    Police released sketches of the Bubes/Percy suspect. I have noted elsewhere the basic similarity to sketches in the Domingos/Edwards, Zodiac and Aardsma cases. All depict young men, with short hair cuts, similar height and weight, similar basic face structure, similar nose/eyes/ears/lips, with large black reading glasses. All are basically similar to various looks of Ted Kaczynski. As the Unabomber, Ted wore dark sunglasses as a disguise, and neighbors also report he would often wear large black reading glasses as protection from wind, snow, rain and dust (and perhaps also as a disguise).

    L to R: Domingos/Edwards Santa Barbara Couples Murderer Suspect "Sandy"; Modified Bubes/Percy Suspect; Zodiac Sketch; Aardsma Suspect.

    Thanks to Morf for finding and posting the article below. The 1963 murders of Domingos and Edwards happened near the Gaviota Tunnel, which is just minutes away from the where the "Goleta Murders" would occur in 1979 and 1981, for which the EAR/ONS is the prime suspect.



    IF the Zodiac Killer did murder Domingos and Edwards, it creates a fascinating chain of MO and evidence links between Domingos/Edwards 1963, the Zodiac Killer 1966 to 1974 and the EAR/ONS 1975 to 1986. Was there a "CALIFORNIA COUPLES KILLER"? Did he do some or all of these crimes? And was it Kaczynski, who wrote about wanting to kill "noisy love making couples" and "rowdy college students who throw their beer cans" in the forest, and who called promiscuous women "animals" and "pigs"?

    THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION BETWEEN ZODIAC AND EAR/ONS

    The Zodiac has long been mentioned by writers and investigators of the Original Night Stalker (ONS) as a possible suspect.

    * Both sometimes attacked lone females, but both usually killed male/female couples.

    * Both used a flashlight to blind their victims, had gun/knife/pre-cut lengths of rope, ordered the female to tie the male, sometimes wore a hood, targeted mostly middle class suburban areas

    * In many of the probable Zodiac crimes in Sonoma County and Northern California, complex nautical knots were used to bind victims, similar to those used by the EAR/ONS.

    * Both wore military clothes/boots/shoes, were never caught, exhibited high intelligence and planning, played games with the police and media, wrote letters to the media and wrote cryptic poems.

    THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE 1963 SANTA BARBARA BEACH MURDERS OF DOMINGOS AND EDWARDS AND THE ZODIAC KILLER

    There are many similarities between the Santa Barbara beach murders of Domingos and Edwards in June 1963 and the Zodiac Killer attack at Lake Berryessa in September 1969.

    * In both murders we have as victims a male - female couple on a blanket by the water

    * In both the attacker has a gun, knife and pre-cut rope.

    * In both the attacker orders female to tie male, then binds them both.

    * And like the Zodiac Killer attack on 12/20/68 at Lake Herman Road, a victim is shot in the back while running away.

    * Also the exact same type of ammo was used at Santa Barbara 1963 and Zodiac attack on Lake Herman Road on 12/20/68 - .22 Winchester Western Super X, six right hand twists and grooves, indicating the same model of gun was used, and perhaps even the exact same weapon.

    * There was an attempt to start an arson fire at Santa Barbara - in probable Zodiac victim Kathleen Johns her car was burned, and there are several other arsons close in time and space to suspected Zodiac crimes.

    THE POSSIBLE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE 1963 SANTA BARBARA BEACH MURDERS OF DOMINGOS AND EDWARDS AND THE ORIGINAL NIGHT STALKER

    Similarities between the Santa Barbara beach attack in 1963 and many of the crimes of the Original Night Stalker include:

    * Attacker ordering the female to tie the male

    * The killer used complex nautical knots

    * The killer put blanket over the bodies or faces of the victims

    * The killer leaves burnt wood matches at the scene.

    A potential major development on the code aspect of the Zodiac case:

    http://unazod.com/phpBB/viewtopic.ph...&sd=a&start=40

    Many of you may know or at least know of the poster at ZodiacKillerFacts called "Aquiman". While we have always been friendly towards each other, he strongly felt that the Kite - Wilks work on the Zodiac Codes using a Caesar Shift method of 0-3-6-9 was WRONG. As do the majority of posters at ZodiacKillerFacts.

    Aqui and I did have discussions about it however. I think he might have become more interested when he saw the work on the Unabomber 9 digit code (by Kite, Oswell and myself) that pretty strongly shows that Ted Kaczynski did use a Caesar Code with 0-3-6-9 values to encode his 9 letter last name. And I think he may have been slightly impressed by sheer dogged persistence (or stubborn stupidity) in my relentlessly exploring and refining my work on the codes. And how the same name keeps showing up across several Zodiac codes, and the consistency of the method used. Using all or mostly Harden Key then applying a Caesar Code with 0-3-6-9 shift values.

    While Aqui felt I was making a serious effort with some interesting results, he still very strongly felt my work on the Zodiac Codes were likely to be wrong. He felt that most if not all the results I was getting were simply the result of random chance. And that what I was claiming were these impressive results were in fact NOT beyond chance. He felt the Caesar method with 0-3-6-9 values produces too many letters, enough letters so that the production of the name "THEODORE J KACZYNSKI" would simply not be beyond random chance odds.

    I should tell you at this point that Aqui is known to very skeptical and he demands solid evidence. I should also tell you that he has a masters degree in Applied Physics and works in the Physics Department at one of the top ten research universities in this country. And that he is well versed in mathematics and computer science, and part of his job involves using computers to do failure analysis using probability and statistics.

    And so he set out to do an unbiased, scientific, complete and independent analysis of my code work and proposed solutions. His objective was to prove my solutions wrong or show they were correct, by using a computer analysis of the probability of obtaining the results I did.



    We have the initial report from Aquiman on the probability of obtaining THEODOREJ and/or KACZYNSKI in any 9 letters of random code, allowing for a Caesar shift of -9, -6, -3, 0, +3, + 6, +9 and for anagrams.

    I will let Aqui post the full report, all the charts and graphs, and give his explanations and caveats.

    Bottom line, however, is amazingly good news for those of us who thought this was the correct method!

    The critics of this method said that "ANY" 9 letters sequence could create the names "THEODOREJ" and "KACZYNSKI". I had many critics tell me, emphatically, that it was 90 to 100% likely to get those names using the Caesar method and anagrams. Others told me it was 50 to 65% likely to get the names in any group of letters.

    Well, we have the initial results of a computer study, done by a CRITIC of the code work, a professional at a major American research university with a masters in Applied Physics who does computer probability studies for a living.

    The initial results are:

    A 3.3% chance of obtaining "THEODOREJ" in a continuous 9 letter sequence.

    A 5.3% chance of obtaining "KACZYNSKI" in a continuous 9 letter sequence.

    And a 0.176% chance of obtaining both.


    Wow! Better even then I thought they would be!

    Note: This analysis does NOT apply to the Unsolved 18, as the two names are not continuous, they are jumbled together. Also, as Aqui reports the computer time to run the analysis for 18 letters would take days. He "guesstimates" based on observable trends for the 9 letter names that the probability for obtaining "THEODOREJKACZYNSKI" jumbled in an 18 letter sequence would be roughly around 1%.

    Aqui has serious concerns about the huge number of possible letter combinations, and is still doing work on this, and as such, has not reached any final conclusions pro or con. He admits these numbers are way lower than he thought they would be. He is subjecting his work to peer review. I thank Aqui for his work on this, his ability to figure out an analysis and his integrity for sticking with the project when he started to get results he was NOT expecting. At this stage he is not endorsing the Kite - Wilks code work. He wants to do more analysis. Which is to his credit.

    Looking at the 9 letters used by Zodiac in the final unsolved 18 in the Zodiac 408 Code, it does appear (to me) that the above analysis would apply, so that the odds of getting BOTH a "THEODOREJ" and also a "KACZYNSKI" from the same continuous 9 letter sequence would be "0.176%" or "just less than 2/10 of 1%". Amazing! And here we do indeed have a 9 letter sequence that Zodiac gave us - ERITHPMBO - that does gives us both names.

    We do have a continuous THEO and a continuous KACZYN in the 3rd line of the 1986 Graysmith solution to the Zodiac 340. The odds of getting THEO are 6.9%, the odds of getting KACZYN are 7.4%, and the odds for getting BOTH are 0.5%. Or "one half of one percent."

    I admit I do not yet fully understand the implications of this report, and it is not yet final.

    But certainly it seems to confirm that there is something going on here worthy of further study, and that the critics who said "any" or "virtually any" letter sequence would produce the TJK name were absolutely wrong. These numbers indicate that the names THEO KACZYNSKI were probably PLACED into the codes. And when I say "probably", I mean 99.5%.[/size]

    ***************



    ***************



    The solved portion of the first Zodiac Code had the last 18 characters which are unsolved.

    The last 18 letters are:

    E..B..E..O..R..I..E..T..E..M..E..T..H..H..P..I..T. .I

    This is actually 9 seperate letters, the rest are repeats:

    E..B..e..O..R..I..e..T..e..M..e..t..H..h..P..i..t. .i

    The 9 seperate letters are:

    E B O R I T M H P

    For reasons which will be clear soon, I am going to take these 9 seperate letters that appear in the unsolved 18 and re-arrange their order:

    E R I T P H M B O

    Why did Zodiac select these 9 letters? He told us the code held his name...but then said we would not "give us" his name. Names usually go at the end of letters. Did he hide his name in these 9 letters, and do we have to "find it", as he would not "give" it to us? He also said if the code was cracked we would "have" him, and that the code contains his "identity".

    What is significant about these 9 letters?

    Let us create a Caesar Code Matrix with 0, 3, 6 and 9 for shift values. A "+" at the bottom indicates the letter string goes FORWARD in the alphabet, a "-" indicates it goes BACKWARDS in the alphabet.


    * A * * Y * * K *
    K X C Z V N S H I
    H U F WS K P E L
    E R I T P H M B O
    * * L * M * J * *
    * * O * J * G * *
    * * * * * * D * *
    + + -+ + + + + -


    That is a Caesar Matrix for the 9 letters we have in the unsolved 18. What do you see?

    Do you see the last name of a Zodiac suspect, a known serial killer, bomb designer and code expert who lived in the SF Bay area during 1967 to 1969? Do you also see his first name?

    Look again - I will color the last name of this suspect:


    * A * * Y * * K *
    K X C Z V N S H I
    H U F WS K P E L
    E R I T P H M B O
    * * L * M * J * *
    * * O * J * G * *
    * * * * * * D * *
    + + - + + + + + -


    Now you can clearly see the last name. And how it appears in a PATTERN.

    6..9..6..6..9..6..6..9..6 (To be precise it is +6 +9 -6, +6 +9 +6, +6 +9 -6).

    Can we calculate the odds that the name occurs from random chance? And in that pattern?

    But also consider this - the 9 letters used in the unsolved last 18 from the first Zodiac Code don't just produce the name KACZYNSKI in a patterned way, they also produce the name THEODOREJ as well. In fact, 5 of the 9 letters used in the last unsolved 18 are in the name THEODOREJ, and the rest are produced by Caesar shift.


    * A * * Y * * K *
    K X C Z V N S H I
    H U F WS K P E L
    E R I T P H M B O
    * * L * M * J * *
    * * O * J * G * *
    * * * * * * D * *
    + + - + + + + +-



    Looking at the 9 letters used by Zodiac in the final unsolved 18 in the Zodiac 408 Code, it does appear (to me) that the numbers in the Aquiman Report would apply, so that the odds of getting BOTH a "THEODOREJ" and also a "KACZYNSKI" from the same continuous 9 letter sequence would be "0.176%" or "just less than 2/10 of 1%". Amazing!

    UPDATE ***** NEW INFO AS OF MAY 2011***** UPDATE

    * You can see the full results of the new Aquiman probabilty study and analysis here:

    http://unazod.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=131

    The study was done by someone who has a Masters in Applied Physics, works at a top ten research university, and does failure analsyis using computers and probabilty/statistical models as part of his regular work. He started off as a critic of my code work.

    The results are quite amazing. They totally refute the critics who said the 18 letter name "Theodore J Kaczynski" could be found in "virtually any" letters string. They are a major first step towards computer confirmation that the Caesar Code method with 0-3-6-9 shifts WAS the way Zodiac hid his name in the codes, and that the name hidden was "THEODORE J KACZYNSKI".

    The existence of the hood found in Kaczynski's cabin shows that Ted, like Zodiac, wanted and could make a decent hood.

    There is also a BLACK HOOD reported as found in Ted's cabin, but as yet no image I have seen.

    NOW...

    I am going to engage in a little speculation here, just exploration and asking a question.

    Looking at the pictures of Zodiac in costume, it appears the hood has a box shape, like there might be a welding mask type structure. It also appears the hood is connected to the dickey that comes over the chest. So that it is one unit. It also appears in the police drawing that the hood has RECTANGULAR EYE SLITS.

    Is it POSSIBLE that he may have wanted to wear a partial face mask hood UNDERNEATH the bulky hood-dickey structure? Perhaps in case it got knocked off during a struggle, so his face would still be partially covered?

    Because it does look like the rectangular eye slits on the Kaczynski hood line up quite well with the Zodiac hood.

    And they are both flat on top.

    This item is being sold to the public. If there is even a 1% chance this could be something Zodiac wore, I wish it could be tested for DNA. With the bloody scene at Lake Berryessa, when Zodiac removed his hood with his hands, tiny microscopic specks of blood from the victims could have got on the hood.For more info see www.unazod.com and the message board there.

    Gary Greenberg noted that Ted Kaczynski would often sign his letters with a large "Z" underneath the signature. He wondered if this was like a "Mark of Zorro". I have never seen anything to indicate Kaczynski would have been a fan of those old adventure films.

    Ted also told a psychiatrist he had an "obssession" with a "Ms. Z" during his gradute school years, though no evidence suggests he had a relationship with any woman, let alone one with a last name starting with a "Z". Was "Ms. Z" his codeword for Zodiac?

    Ted also spraypainted a Norse Yggdrasil symbol, also known as the Algiz Rune, at the campus of a target. The Algiz Rune translates to English as the letter "Z".

    Ted Kaczynski spent several years of graduate study and his PHD dissertation on the boundary functions of circles, in particular dealing with the unit circle, which looks like the Zodiac symbol.

    In a yearbook Ted indicated his "mark" was two crossed lines inside a circle, suggesting a rough early prototype of the Zodiac symbol.

    A close up on his signature with the crossed lines inside a circle.



    Close up on Unit Circle, Zodiac Device and Unabomber Devices (Norse Yggdrasil/Algiz Rune translates to English letter "Z").




    Is the large "Z" under his name meant to conjure up Zodiac?

    Doug Oswell of www.unazod.com asked this: Maybe someone can tell us the significance of this document, which is included in the auction and dated ??-22-75. It appears as if it might be some kind of state ID card. Ted supposedly worked near Chicago at some point during 1975, at a location whose name he claims he can't remember.



    AK = The card appears to say at the top "DEPARTMENT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT - STATE OF ILLINOIS".

    WTF!?!?

    Did Ted work for this agency??? Or was he briefly doing a job that is licensed by that arm of state government? Are many routine jobs like cab drivers so licensed? This is seriously weird.

    Can anyone make out the other writing on this card?

    Linda found out that this is apparently a State of Illinois Firearms Owners Registration Card. Interesting. I can understand why Ted Kaczynski owned rifles in California and Montana for hunting. I wonder why he felt the need to own a pistol in Illinois, and what kind of pistol it was.

    Have you heard of Edward Wayne Edwards - The Man with the Hook Convicted Ohio serial killer? Some believe he was the first Zodiac Killer. I don't know why but one detective is still investigating this.

    He is John Cameron, retired homicide detective. He has a facebook page explaining what he thinks.

    Here are two links to article concerning Edward Edwards you might want to take a look at.

    That second link you posted did not work for me. Maybe you can fix it or take it down.

    There have been so many suspects over the years, this guy doesn't look like Zodiac to me.

    There are so many murders every year, every murderer can be considered a suspect. What distinguishes Zodiac from 99.99% of other killers, even 98% of other serial killers, is the mania to communicate and taunt via letters, the demand for his letters to appear on the front page, the ability to create codes the FBI could not solve, high IQ, references to opera and literature and the growing interest in distance crimes like sniper attack threats and bomb threats.

    Edward Edwards

    I'm not real familiar with the Zodiac Killer or Killers as detective John Cameron stated. He referred to Edward Edwards as the first Zodiac killer. I didn't know there were 2.

    I'll put the previous link on again. I don't know why it didn't work. Sorry.

    http://unusualkentucky.blogspot.com/...with-hook.html



    I don't see Edwards as a highly intellegent person either..........Just a killer.
