Zodiac Decoded

He ain’t got teefers or claws, or didn’t have (probably), and he wasn’t covered with fur (probably) and the full moon had nothing to do with his crimes (probably, although he was a little obsessed with constellations and celestial phenomena and such), but he was a serial killer, and in the past serial killers were a major, perhaps *the* major, component in the development of the werewolf as a psychological archetype. That qualifies the subject for inclusion here, and examination.

A team of three international codebreakers—American David Oranchak, Aussie Sam Blake, and Jarl Van Eycke of Belgium—has deciphered one of the Zodiac killer’s cryptograms, the infamous “340 Cipher”. So what was the killer saying? “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
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” So while we still don’t know his identity, we now know that the Zodiac didn’t use spellcheck.
