People are fascinated with serial killers. Which probably goes a long way to creating the next batch of them since they know their otherwise meaningless lives will be scrutinized and analysed long after they're dead.


Oh yes, people craving fame would naturally gratitate towards serial killing. Must be this. At least as important as early childhood abuse, or reactive attachment deficit disorder, or some ginormous anti-social personality disorder, or a sexual fetish that leave the only real satisfaction in making a specific type of victim suffer in a speficic type of way.

Yeah, looking at serial killers that get caught in the past, I think "attention whore", sure, that's right up there with all of the other possible forces that form them.

Really, do people believe stuff shallow? How does that happen, reading too many comic books and thinking real life villains are like that?

Well, apparently according to the FBI's list of motives, it is.

Really, do people believe stuff shallow? How does that happen, reading too many comic books and thinking real life villains are like that?

Do people really believe that when someone makes a comment about how one aspect of something could affect another they're really saying it's the only aspect? Of course the other causes you listed have a link in the formation of serial killers, that's obvious. But when a killer is sending messages to the police through the media or leaving bodies out in the open, posed and on display, there's clearly a serious attention seeking component to their motives.

My adoptive father was questioned twice in the case. He worked on codes and ciphers with the marines before his dishonorable discharge. He was in trouble as a juvenile for arson and the murder of neighborhood pets. He collects knives, and has spent most of the past forty years in and out of prison on charges ranging from fraud to embezzlement to burglary and assault. I know for a fact that the bastard has a taste for rape, and gets violent when he can't get it up.
I'm 85% convinced he was the Zodiac...he had connections to all of the locations, including the college in southern California.

Lionel Mandrake: I'd like nothing more than for this creep to get caught and pay his dues...yet I have a begrudging respect for the guy. A lot of smart people spent a long time trying to figure him out. Serial killers are often caught because they make the mistake of thinking that they are smarter than the collective of folks looking for him. In this case, it may be true.

He hasn't been dumb enough to pull a BTK and try to revive his former glory (not yet, anyway, and assuming he's still alive). I hope he does - I'd like to see him brought to justice - but I don't think we'll ever know...he may be alive, he may be dead, but I think his identity will never be known.


I was going to post some clever comment about how they'll never take me alive but don't want to be woken up to the sound of the front door being bashed in at 3:00am with a small army of cops storming the place. So just pretend I said something clever along those lines.

Well not the way you tell it. You could make it a little more interesting, add some details, and change the tone to make it a cool story.

Also, don't disparage knife collectors. I have more knives in my possession than anyone else I know and yet I've never even used one to so much as angrily chop a potato, let alone hurt anything or anyone. (except my left index finger. Nearly 10 scars on that thing)

There is no topic I've ever found that draws more crazies than the Zodiac Killer case. A bunch of pseudo-Robert Graysmiths (who was a bit of a loon himself) are all trying to solve a case by picking random people who lived through the 60s in the Bay Area, and trying to prove they're the Zodiac Killer. Wacky.

It would not surprise me that Zodiac was protected by rich people and corrupt civil officials.

That is probably what happened in the Cleveland Torso killer case (Kingsbury Run Butcher). Elliot Ness was hired as Cleveland's Public Safety director. One of his duties was to find the killer who was denogginizing poor people. The prime suspect was related to a US congressman. The suspect agreed to sign himself into a mental institution and the case was solved and dropped. Until he checked himself out of the institution. He probably murdered people for 3 decades. He might have killed the Black Dahlia.

Money is an amazingly powerful thing.

My uncle Steve was a Vallejo cop, and on the scene of the first murder there. This has haunted him for years. I need to send him this link.

Now, if they can find some leads on the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker that would make me happy. That guy terrorized my neighborhood as a child - we think he even tried to get in our house, but my mother was waiting just inside the window with a sawed off shotgun, he heard her rack it, he picked up his shiat and ran. He attacked a family a mile and half away about an hour later.

Gyrfalcon: If they haven't figured out who Zodiac is by now, they're not going to. He's likely dead or incarcerated for another unrelated crime; and like Jack the Ripper, there will be endless speculation through the decades, and never a solid solution.


He was kidnapped by the Vorlons?

I've always wondered if this was actually a coded message or if he just put a bunch of random symbols on a page knowing people would spend years vainly trying to solve it. Twisted genius or ultimate troll?

I translated it and it says "0bama's real birth certificate is located in Castle of Aaargh"

He must've died while writing it...


Look, if he was dying, he wouldn't have bothered to carve 'Aaargh'. He'd just say it.

A lot of smart people spent a long time trying to figure him out. Serial killers are often caught because they make the mistake of thinking that they are smarter than the collective of folks looking for him. In this case, it may be true.

He was incredibly lucky. If the wrong suspect description hadn't gone out initially (black male adult) over the police radio after the Paul Stine shooting, he would have been caught two blocks from the crime scene. He must have realized this as that was the last confirmed Zodiac killing.

If the man's a serial killer, he couldn't just stop after killing Paul Stine. The main reasons why Dennis Rader (BTK) stopped killing was because a. he was getting older and b. he had acquired a large collection of photos and trophies from his various murders, which he used as masturbation fodder. However, since Zodiac's crimes weren't exactly sexual in nature, it's debatable as to whether he would have such a collection. Did he even take things from crime scenes? His European counterpart, the Monster of Florence, did, in his case the vaginas of female victims... Perhaps Zodiac moved and changed MO---Virginia's Colonial Parkway Killer has still never been caught, and also targeted necking couples in cars. We'll probably never know...


He tore off a large section of Stine's bloodied shirt, parts of which he sent with some of his letters. He also took Stine's car keys and wallet. Maybe he did keep killing, he certainly claimed that he did but the key difference is that he stopped providing any evidence in his letters for any specific killings. He did keep writing his letters for years, though, which makes me think that farking with the public and the cops and all the attention he got replaced the thrill of killing (except for Lake Berryessa, the murders were quick shootings, not particularly sadistic/sexual like BTK, etc) as his motivation.

Personally, I think it's because most police agencies around the world aren't trained to, or even want to, recognize the patterns of a serial killer.

//Sometimes it's not that the criminals are smart, it's just that the cops are just stupid


Following up on this comment, in case someone does not recognize the (truly) evil clown, that is John Wayne Gacy. In 1968 the guy was convicted of raping a 16 year old and hiring someone to beat the victim up to keep the victim from testifying at trial. Starting in 1972, at the latest, he started raping, murdering and then burying young men under his house or dumping there bodies elsewhere. Despite his previous record, despite multiple disappearances of young men being tied to Gacy, despite parents calling the cops and begging them to investigate, despite victims property being collecting by Gacy (including a car!), despite another victim, who was tortured then let go by Gacy, reporting the assault to police, despite victims disappearing after being last seen with Gacy, despite the odor of multiple dead bodies under his house, the cops did not get around to really investigating him until late 1978 after he killed at least 26 young men and probably many more. Personally, when serial killers get away without getting caught, I don't believe it is because they are geniuses as was suggested above. I think it is more like an indication of the level of intelligence of the people investigation them.

I've always wondered if this was actually a coded message or if he just put a bunch of random symbols on a page knowing people would spend years vainly trying to solve it. Twisted genius or ultimate troll?

It's a word search!

So far I've only found "ᴪƎZXƿ", "Fʘɸͻ/" and "8==D~" ..

My attempts at cracking it have only yielded the words "milk", "eggs" and "vegemite". Which proves that he's A) most likely just farking with police by sending in his grocery list and B) he has no sense of taste.

You didn't find "8==D~"? :-|

No. I think he might need to trim a bit....the length of the some of those thick dark lines obscured my view. Was it written in smaller font?


My mistake... there's only supposed to be an equals sign and a capital D.
