FAMILY MEMBER Of KILLER WILL DELIVER STATEMENT Of EVIDENCE

Supporting Forensic Experts, Law Enforcement/Government Personalities, and Legal Representatives organized by members of the original Law Offices of Melvin Belli will be in Attendance

SAN FRANCISCO, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 40 years have passed since the first ZODIAC murder. He may have killed 36 people. There has never been conclusive evidence implicating a single individual and no one has ever come forward to identify the real killer. This has remained one of the world's greatest unsolved crime sprees...until now. For the first time in four decades, there is new, never before seen or heard evidence of the identity of the Zodiac Killer. Through the efforts of many world renowned forensic experts under the direction of original partners of famed Zodiac Killer confidant/attorney Melvin Belli, a press conference will be held this Wednesday at the San Francisco Chronicle. At the press conference, a proven immediate family member of the Zodiac Killer will make a statement identifying the killer. Attending with her will be leading forensic experts, a Melvin Belli former partner, family lawyers and others who have helped solve this case that has been open for many years. Information of the forensic evidence - including cryptology, handwriting analysis, current law enforcement investigations, and most startling, the murder accomplice evidence - will be distributed. This historical revelation upsets the theories of the murder investigations in the past. Many cold case crimes have recently been solved because of 21st century forensic technology. This is one of the bigger breakthroughs.

Recently, there has been misinformation distributed to some media outlets from a source in Sacramento which fast tracked this press conference. Over two years have been spent in forensic investigations by the nation's best so there could be no question unanswered about the evidence to be distributed this Wednesday.

WHAT: Press Conference: ZODIAC KILLER Identified - Family Member, forensic experts, crime investigators and lawyers

WHEN: Wednesday, April 29th, 2009 at 12 Noon

WHERE: In front of the San Francisco Chronicle Building 901 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103

WHO: Family member of Zodiac Killer, former associates of Law Firm of Melvin M. Belli, forensic experts, investigators

Loved the movie. Very interested in this case. I'm guessing it's the guy they pin-pointed in the film. There was just too much evidence pointing to him.

Zodiac Killer's Identity And Weapon Uncovered?
Local Man: Zodiac Killer Was My Stepfather
Update On Evidence Investigated By FBI
Reporting
Kris Pickel
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) ― The Zodiac Killer murdered several people, terrorizing the Bay Area and taunting police in the 60's and 70's. The FBI confirmed to CBS13 on Thursday that they are now running laboratory tests on some items that may link a suspect to the killer.

The evidence was given to the FBI by a Pollock Pines man who also claims he recently found the disguise worn by the Zodiac Killer during one of his attacks.

"The identity of the Zodiac Killer is Jack Tarrance. He's my stepfather," said Dennis Kaufman.

Eight years of Dennis Kaufman's life has been consumed with attempting to prove the only father he's known since he was five-years-old is none other than the Zodiac Killer.

"This is a handwriting comparison I did," Kaufman said, showing handwriting samples of what he claims to be his stepfather's and the Zodiac Killer's. He claims the samples are too similar to be coincidence.

"The composite is a dead ringer," Kaufman said, showing composite sketch of the killer next to his stepfather's -- a resemblance that is undeniable between pictures of Jack Tarrance and descriptions of the zodiac.

Kaufman also claims his stepfather, in a taped phone conversation, indirectly admitted being the zodiac killer.

Jack Tarrance died in 2006. Kaufman said that while going through Tarrance's belongings, he made some disturbing finds. One piece of evidence he plans to turn over to the FBI is a knife still covered with what could possibly be dried blood.

"It could be a knife he barbecued with or a knife he murdered someone with," Kaufman said.

Jack also left behind rolls of undeveloped film which will also be turned over to the FBI. On the one roll Kaufman did develop, there were gruesome images.

"[It] appeared to be people who were murdered," he explained.

Just recently, Kaufman remembered his stepfather asking him several times about an old PA system, which led him to take it apart.

"When I first opened it up that did affect me. My heart skipped a couple of beats when I saw it," he said.

The material folded and tucked inside, Kaufman believes, may unmask the zodiac killer.

"It was a black hood with a zodiac on it," Kaufman said.

It's similar to the hood worn during the vicious 1968 Lake Berryessa attack, which could be key evidence connecting his stepfather to the killings. He also believes there are dozens of additional victims which were never linked to the Zodiac, including Kaufman's own mother, who he claims was suffocated.

"She sat there and told me Jack was trying to kill her and I didn't listen. I can only imagine how she felt. Imagine how scary that would be. That is what kept me going this whole time," he said.

The FBI confirmed they are running DNA tests on items that Kaufman gave them.

Kaufman said there are letters sent to him by his stepfather, and authorities are trying to get DNA profile of Jack Tarrance to compare to the Zodiac Killer. The FBI told CBS13 they could get those results back any day.

heh.

I often wonder this - i did a lot of research on nature vs. nurture, etc - in HS and i did a study on Serial killers (which got me time in the guidance office).

I remember being asked: "Why does this fascinate you"

me: "most serial killers are delusional, but some people do infact need to die".

That didn't go over so well.

Needless to say, i don't kill people - but i do make dead hooker jokes from time to time. That will probably get me interrogated at some point.

No, this one is a lady who was watching Americas Most Wanted, saw a composite pick of Zodiac, thought it looked like her dad, and "remembered" all sorts of father-daughter bonding time (I am not making this up) where she wrote the zodiac letters and went out with him on killing sprees.

It appears that there is a 3rd suspect that has become popular recently. Richard Joseph Gaikowski (aka Dick Gyke).

And start a thread for every step in the process.

Thread titles:

Thinking about switching to a khaki wife beater...

Wal-Mart's wife beaters are better and cheaper than K-Mart's...

Had to use the Wal-Mart crapper today...

I almost fought the Wal-Mart greeter today...

I love buying my chili ingredients and clothes at the same place...

Poll: Tabasco or chili powder?

Poll: Pinto beans or kidney beans?

Poll: white or gray wife beater for chili cook off - looking for a classy look.

Bought a sweet Bea Arthur (I'd hit it) commemorative plate at Wal-Mart today. RIP Bea!
