The Zodiac Killer was the infamous serial killer in the 60’s-70’s who was never caught. There was a movie on him and there was a thought about who it was but it turned out false. Today, the zodiac killer would be around 80 years old if he is still alive. How did he get away with it? They only have partial DNA but have no one to match it to. They can only rule people out. The zodiac killer liked to taunt the police with scary letters that he would send to the newsrooms because he knew they would be on television. This is a truly an unknown genius that no one can catch. He sent a coded message to the news chronicle that was a 340 cipher code consisting of symbols. A code that was impossible to break until now. It took exactly 51 years to decode the code and it has finally happened.
This creepy code with numbers and symbols says:
I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING LOTS OF FUN IN TRYING TO CATCH ME THAT WASNT ME ON THE TV SHOW WHICH BRINGS UP A POINT ABOUT ME I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE GAS CHAMBER BECAUSE IT WILL SEND ME TO PARADICE ALL THE SOONER BECAUSE I NOW HAVE ENOUGH SLAVES TO WORK FOR ME WHERE EVERYONE ELSE HAS NOTHING WHEN THEY REACH PARADICE SO THEY ARE AFRAID OF DEATH I AM NOT AFRAID BECAUSE I KNOW THAT MY NEW LIFE IS LIFE WILL BE AN EASY ONE IN PARADICE DEATH”
This is very chilling because it took the police 51 years to decode this. I think because of the different technology but even with the new technology it was hard because there was no words. So how did they do it? I’m asking you because I wanna know. All the news articles say that it was decoded by experts. I guess they understand symbols because I am clueless. The meaning behind the code shows signs of no resentment and sounds like he is taunting his own life. He doesn’t care if he dies because he got to kill, so he is satisfied with whatever happens. It is said that he killed 7-8 people and had 2 survivors but he claimed that he there was around 37 victims. I believe that there could be a big number because he is proud which shows that something big happened.
Til this day, the zodiac killer remains infamous as the one who got away. There are many stories on who it could’ve been and many people who got inspired from this such as the Japanese Zodiac Killer. I have seen criminal shows talking about this case like “criminal minds”. Just imagine thinking someone you know who look like that drawing could be the zodiac killer. He picked victims who needed help, who were on dates, and those who he just wanted to kill. To think that they never got justice is sad. I wanna know who he is. I wasn’t born during that time but even I know that this case was huge. Who is this person that blends in with society?
