    ZODIAC: A TO Z - EP. #14 - UNSUB: Part 3 - The Signature

    The Zodiac’s true motives remain unknown, but the study of his crimes reveals his signature. While some murderers may vary their methods of operation, a killer’s choices, actions, and words reflect his needs– even when he attempts to deceive and even when he does not realize that he is doing so. In this sense, the killer’s crimes will reveal his psychological fingerprint.

    ZODIAC: A TO Z - EP. #12 - UNSUB: Part 1 - The Description

    ZODIAC: A TO Z - EP. #12 - UNSUB: Part 1 - The Description

    The varying descriptions of the Zodiac have created confusion and fueled debate. Some eyewitnesses described the killer as short as 5'8" tall while others said he was approximately 6' tall. One witness thought the Zodiac weighed approximately 180 lbs. while another said he may have been as heavy as 250 lbs. Some estimates of the killer's age ranged from mid-thirties to late-forties. The now-infamous sketch produced by the San Francisco Police Department remains the only representation of the Zodiac’s face, although some people question the accuracy of that depiction. The issue was further complicated by theorists who claimed that their suspects matched the physical description of the killer. This episode examines the eyewitness descriptions and the efforts to create a portrait of the Zodiac.

    ZODIAC: A TO Z - Zodiac Ciphers: Deconstructing Solutions

    ZODIAC: A TO Z - Zodiac Ciphers: Deconstructing Solutions

    The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, and other news outlets ran stories about a French engineer who claims that he has solved the Zodiac’s remaining ciphers, known as the Z13 and the Z32. The newly-proposed solutions point to long-time suspect Larry Kane and indicate a connection to a suspected Zodiac postcard and a possible victim who disappeared in 1970. These claims may seem compelling but the facts reveal many problems with the methods used to produce these solutions. Including audio clips with Harvey Hines, Mike Morford (ZodiacKillerSite.net), and David Oranchak (ZodiacKillerCiphers.com).

    According to one persistent theory, authorities discovered evidence proving that Charles Manson and his infamous “family” of killers were responsible for the Zodiac murders but this evidence was withheld and suppressed for various reasons. The facts tell a very different story in this encore presentation of a segment from the previous episode “10 Zodiac Killer Myths: Debunked.” Featuring: Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi.

    ZODIAC: A TO Z - The Devil Rides Out: Part 2

    In the syndicated tabloid TV show Now It Can Be Told, Geraldo Rivera and Maury Terry claimed the evidence indicated that Zodiac victim Darlene Ferrin was targeted for death by members of a satanic cult. Terry also claimed that satanists were responsible for the 'Son of Sam' shootings in New York and other crimes across America. This theory of a nationwide network of satanic killers has become a popular myth, but the facts reveal the many problems with the conspiracy theories in both the 'Son of Sam' and Zodiac cases.
