Zodiac Killer identified, linked to sixth murder, cold-case squad claims
A cold-case task force claims it has identified the notorious Zodiac Killer, who terrorized Northern California in the late 1960s and taunted authorities with cryptic notes.
Investigators with the Case Breakers told Fox News that the group — led by former FBI agents and retired law enforcement officials — has identified the infamous killer as Gary Francis Poste, who died in 2018.
They also tied the infamous serial killer to a sixth murder in Southern California.
The Zodiac Killer had already been linked to five murders in 1968 and 1969 in the San Francisco area by the FBI.
During his spree, the madman sent a series of letters to local newspapers, in which he coined his nickname and threatened more slayings if they weren’t printed. Some letters included ciphers — with some puzzles still unsolved decades later.
