After five decades experts have finally decoded a letter sent to the San Francisco Chronicle by the Zodiac Killer way back in 1969. The letter mocks the efforts to find him.
The deciphered message states: “I hope you are having lots of fun in trying to catch me,” the killer wrote in the coded message. “I am not afraid of the gas chamber because it will send me to paradise all the sooner because I now have enough slaves to work for me.”
The letter which contained a mixture of letters, numbers, and symbols has been studied by detectives, criminologists and authors from decades. Unfortunately, the name of this unknown killer is still a mystery though speculations have been rife.
The Zodiac Killer’s murderous spree emerged during the sixties and seventies. He has been involved in over 37 murders. Most of these murders have been of young couples who lived in rural areas.
“Last weekend, a team I’m on solved the 340 (the police name for the note) and submitted it to the FBI,” coding expert David Oranchak told the Chronicle on Friday. “They have confirmed the solution. No joke! This is the real deal.”
An FBI spokesperson in San Francisco confirmed that the breakthrough took place.
