The Zodiac Killer is a famous serial killer. He is particularly renowned for his encrypted messages, some of which have remained a mystery until now. In a fairly late twist, it was revealed that three amateur detectives managed to decipher one of the serial killer’s messages.
A team of amateur private investigators have managed to decipher a mysterious coded message sent over 50 years ago to a newspaper by the San Francisco serial killer who called himself Zodiac. Also called the Zodiac Killer, the serial killer was active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The unidentified killer was the perpetrator of at least five identified murders during his career. The criminal himself said he killed 37 people. He is also the originator of a series of letters and short messages sent to the San Francisco Bay Area press. These letters were all coded and included four cryptograms. Zodiac was a particularly intelligent being, and so he managed to avoid the police.
Many of these letters have also remained a mystery. The letter that was recently decrypted included 340-character encryption. It had been sent to the San Francisco Chronicle in November 1969. So it took 51 years to crack the code, noted the San Francisco Chronicle. ” Hope you have a lot of fun trying to catch me. It wasn’t me on the TV show… I’m not afraid of the gas chamber because it will send me to heaven faster, because I now have enough slaves to work for me », Can we read in the message. Unfortunately, the letter does not disclose the identity of the killer.
With this new evidence, the FBI reassured in a statement that the investigations into the Zodiac killer continued, but that the details will not be released out of respect for the victims and their families.
