In another case of 20/20 hindsight, there’s a retired California Highway Patrol officer, who says he knows who the infamous Zodiac Killer is.
The Zodiac Killer was linked to five murders in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960’s and 1970’s, though he claimed to have killed 37. He sent coded messages that used symbols to the police, which is where his moniker came from.
Lyndon Lafferty, the former CHP officer, says that the killer is now 91 years old and is a recovering alcoholic who lives in Fairfield, CA. He won’t name the man, though. To me, this says he’s probably not totally confident of his identification of the killer.
Lafferty has written a book that say, the killer was enraged by his cheating wife. Because of this, a judge who was having an affair with the wife, protected the killer from investigation by hamstringing the police investigators.
I enjoy historical mysteries and this is a fairly modern one, and I definitely think it still remains a mystery despite Mr. Lafferty’s assertion. I’ll change my mind if this 91-year-old man is identified and arrested for the murders.
