Hey, gang. Hope everyone is doing well.

So, I was driving down the road the other day, doing a little thinkin'. Mainly, on how Lake Berryessa had some things going on that still, in my mind, didn't fit the Zodiac profile. And then, it hit me. "In my mind" wasn't the right viewpoint. So, I decided to look at how things went down, and find the common thread, and this is what I came up with.

(Note: for purposes of this discussion, I'm only using admitted Zodiac killings. I am in no way, shape, or form claiming that this removes the possibility of Jack being involved in any other murders, nor am I saying it clears his name. I'm just looking at the Zodiac "persona".)

Cheri Jo Bates- "I wonder if I could get away with murder?"

Faraday and Jensen on Lake Herman Road- "I got away with murder. I wonder if I could get away with killing two people?"

Ferrin and Mageau in Blue Rock Springs- "I got away with murder, and with killing two people. I wonder if I could get away with killing two people, and telling the world I did it?"

Hartnell and Shepard at Lake Berryessa- "OK, I got away with murder, with killing two people, and with killing two more people and telling the world I did it. I wonder if I could get away with killing two people while wearing a freakin' disguise that would indict me on the spot, and then telling the world I did it?"

Stine in Persidio Heights- "All right, fine. I got away with murder. I got away with a double murder. I got away with telling the world I did it. I got away with killing while wearing a confession. But all of those were in relatively secluded areas. I wonder if I could get away with killing someone right there in the street, in the middle of a heavily populated city?"

Kathleen Johns- "I wonder if I could get away with killing a child? Nah, better not." This basically explains how Johns survived the encounter- because, let's face it, hiding in a field from someone who wants to kill you isn't a good idea.

It's almost like a child reaching out and testing his boundaries and limits. Except, y'know, with murder.

I completely agree with that, by the time he got to JBR he plastered and integrated his initials throughout the ransom letter.
He wanted credit for his deeds, I think this is why he leaked things to Dennis.

I understand that, I think that the "what if's" can help explain a chain of events coupled with the known evidence. You're probably weary because of all of the nasty flamers that appear on the scene.

One sometimes has no choice but to counteract their lies and distortions so that other people don't get wrong ideas in their heads. It's a dirty job that must be done and it's very much like politics which most people dislike but nevertheless it is a reality.

I'm happy that this forum isn't open to the public at large so that all pertinent information can be sorted out without distraction or deterrence.

I understand and that's cool with me.
