It just occurred to me that there could be innocent people still in prison rotting away for some of Jack's crimes.

When someone turns up dead, Police always look for someone with a motive. Many people have been convicted on motive and opportunity alone without any direct evidence (fingerprints, blood, reliable eye witness) even in this day and age.

So we might not be dealing with just answers to known unsolved crimes.

Here's one from that area that looks a bit peculiar.

http://auburnjournal.com/detail/113316.html

Janet Kovacich disappeared Sept, 8, 1982.

Placer Sheriff’s deputy Jerry Dollinger, was reported missing Sept. 8, 1982, the same day Janet Kovacich disappeared. Dollinger’s body was found several days later on a Lake Tahoe Shore. The cause of death was never determined.

on Sept. 8, 1982, an employee at Alpine Market, where the Kovacichs frequently shopped, reported seeing a woman with a band-aid on her lower lip. He said the woman looked like the photo of the missing woman being published but when interviewed over the phone by law enforcement, he said he was unable to describe the woman or her clothing and said he thought he could not pick the woman, or the man she was with, out of a photo lineup. According to the defense, only Janet’s doctor and family members knew she had a band-aid on her lower lip. The bandage was covering where Janet had previously had sutures.

In 1995, hikers found a skullcap at a reservoir in Rollins Lake.

In 2007, DNA tests confirmed that it was Janet Kovacich’s skull. The rest of her remains have not yet been found.

It wasn’t until September 2006 that Paul Kovacich was officially named a suspect in the case. Kristi Kovacich said after reading the entire transcripts from the 2006 Grand Jury hearing, after which her father was indicted of her mother’s murder, she was able to confirm her father’s innocence.

In October 2008, the trial for Paul Kovacich began and in January 2009 it ended when a jury convicted him of first-degree murder with the use of a firearm in the death of his wife.

The defense was reportedly not allowed to present information about other missing people from the Auburn area during Paul Kovacich Jr.’s trial.

Former Placer Sheriff’s Sgt. Paul Kovacich Jr. was sentenced to 27-years-to-life in prison for murdering his wife, Janet Kovacich.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Too much information is missing about Janet, Jerry, the circumstances surrounding both of their disappearances, the cause of Jerry's death, the time of Janet's death and Paul's whereabout on the day they disappeared to say this is the work of a serial killer or not.

Possibly Jerry did it and then went to Tahoe to off himself.

Possibly the two were having an affair and the husband killed them both.

Possibly they were both in the wrong place at the wrong time and victims of the same random serial killer(s).

But, there is definitely enough reasonable doubt not to convict the husband. He must have had a shit attorney to get nailed with something like this 26 years later.

Good to see you guys back. Ignore the weird trolls who are in love with their own theories/skepticism. They aren't worth your time.

Hey there, everybody! I thought I had posted things on poss. Zodiac Killer victim Charles Jarman but didn't, so, had to look for them and put them here. WHY? Because Texarkana Phantom has mentions of a shirt or laundry as an M.O. and many years ago, Charles Jarman crime scene included a row of brightly colored shirts down the block. Add this to people long before us here, thought Zodiac Killer was probably Texarkana Phantom because of Red Phantom clue. Well, here's the copy of San Francisco Chronicle 1/70 Article you won't find anywhere online: (from P1) ....brb....

End of article that says "another swatch of cloth from Stines bloody shirt) isn't in this picture. I'll replace it later. I got the copies off of microfilm apx 1995 SF State University. In 1970 there was reportedly a suspect named Brommel but I can't find any substantiated evidence that he was tried or ever convicted as no Calif. Dept of Corrections numbers...nothing. So, IMO, Charles Jarman is still, like Toschi & SFPD originally thought because of the crime & crime scene, he is most likely a Zodiac Killer victim.

Now on to the victims names in Texarkana Phantom crimes:

Trying to stick to Jack Tarrance field he was familiar with, I was looking for an 1940s Atomic Bomb or Energy connection and this is what I got:
Booker: D.V. Booker name is found in Atomic Energy Research; Hollis: Everett Hollis in Atomic Energy Commission BUT Sir Roger Hollis A-Bomb cold war era spy; Martin: Arthur Martin was involved in A-Bomb era and cold war spy investigations of Hollis selling A-Bomb secrets to Soviets.

The best name is MOORE: Charlotte Emma Moore (Sitterly) was a scientist, in Spectrum Analysis, joined NATIONAL STANDARDS BUREAU of Boulder Colorado 1945. There's more to add as she's a long list of publications as to what she did in her career BUT Boulder Colorado, that is the home to USAs standards that affected everything in Manhattan Project, A-Bomb and subsequent pioneering field of Atomic Energy of the 1950s when Jack started to work for GE. As far as possible Texarkana Phantom victims Stark & McSpadden, I have yet to find anything in Manhattan Project or Atomic Energy. I'll be back later but IMO, just even the names of the known victims seem to be a clue, that JT was Texarkana Phantom.

edited 4:40 GMT Kodiak is gone "If you just read this post & MB, "Kodiak" there is no, NONE, not 1 iota of information like trial & CDC # for Brommel. He was a suspect then nothing happened!"

As far as Jarman, there's an interesting tidbit that a Charles Jarman in 1942 was in UKs National Seaman Union, surname of Wiltamuth is british name. Was Merchant Seaman Wiltamuth british? Were Jacks Stepdad & Jarman on ships togethe

In loosely following some Atomic Bomb 1940s links, I noted that some declassified info on Norman Hackerman, who worked University of Texas Austin in Chemistry during Manhattan Project, he had parents that were from Russia. Upon entering military 1942 he was instructed to oversea 5 USA projects in 5 areas of the country. I haven't seen the names of these areas, as maybe classified, but Chicago, Los Alamos NM area may be among 3 including Austin, Tx. Chicago was a key Manhattan Project hub and Degnan worked w/ dept that aided Manhattan Project. USA, UK, Canada were in the Manhattan Project but Russia was one of our allies in WWII was not. Names of Hollis & MI5 UK agent Martin are part of 1950s investigations into Sir Roger Hollis A-Bomb secrets sold to Russia. I haven't read what the outcome of this was. Hollis & Martin are names of Texarkana Phantom victims. Just some intriguing connections that elude to the Cold War and Jack Tarrance did work Atomic Energy field during Cold War. It was a very, stressful time. Any slip-up on the job, talk to the wrong person, lives could be lost and it was a secret, covert world with FBI at the helm within USA borders and CIA outside it.

There was also a nuclear accident 1944 in Philadelphia that killed a man from Arkansas w/ the details not declassified until late 1980s. As soon as I find the names, details, I'll post. There does appear to be a Texarkana to Chicago Manhattan Project link. Out of Manhattan Project grew pioneering field Jack Tarrance worked in. Edited: HERE IS THE LINK on ARKANSAS CHEMIST SECRETLY WORKING MANHATTAN PROJECT AND PHILADELPHIA ACCIDENT 1944:
http://www.mphpa.org/classic/FH/PH/Article_03_1.htm

BTW "Phantom" is a term used in Atomic Energy, especially radiation detecting.

NanetteB, sorry for late response on this MB but I swear I saw something about a freshly laundered bloody shirt left outside in one of the Texarkana Phantom case but I can't find it now. This was before 2009. Hmmm...???? Things disappear online.

S.F. CABBIE SHOT IN ZODIAC STYLE

A 28-year-old cab driver was found shot in the head early yesterday in San Francisco, 10 blocks away from where another cab driver was fatally shot Oct. 11 by a killer who calls himself Zodiac.

Charles Jarman, of Daly City, was found slumped behind the wheel of his Yellow Cab by police on routine patrol. The cab was parked near the intersection of Jackson and Broderick streets with the lights on and engine running.

Police said Jarman was unconscious with a bullet wound in front of his right ear. He underwent surgery at San Francisco General Hospital and was reported in critical condition today.

Homicide inspector William Armstrong said the department is investigating the possibility Jarman was shot by the man called Zodiac who has been linked with the fatal shooting of another Yellow Cab Driver, Paul Stine, 29.

Armstrong says he doesn't believe the same man committed both shootings, but he added "There is always a possibiliy."

Police said $35 was missing from Jarman's taxi. Armstrong said the similarities between the Stine and Jarman shootings included the fact that both are Yellow Cab drivers, both were shot in the head, robbery was apparently the motive in both cases, and they occurred 10 blocks apart.

Homicide investigators early yesterday questioned some 15 residents in the area where Jarman was found but were unable to turn up a suspect.

Four neatly laundered shirts were found in a neat row on the sidewalk one half block from Jarman's cab. Armstrong said investigators are checking to see if the shirts belonged to Jarman.

Nanette, obviously JT was mentally disturbed, I would think that some of that behavior could also be classified as an obsessive-compulsive disorder as well as his ego being a big part of it, do you follow what I mean by that? Kinda like along with his killings he has to "tidy up" something, like "things" have to a "rhyme and reason" for him, he obviously was very much into organizing some things but the flip side of him would come out and say to hell with it and act defiantly. He probably also had a short fuse and a violent temper, it seems I've read that Dennis' site.

That's some pretty interesting stuff you've posted on this thread.

I have been going back and reading older posts so I can catch up on this case. There is so much information stored here. It's just amazing!

I find the Jack Tarrance/Texarcana phantom connection fascinating and I feel it makes a lot of sense. To me this is where Tarrance started his years long murder spree. From these initial murders he hopped the rails en route to Los Angeles ultimately culminating in the Black Dahlia murder. Naneete Barto has done exhausting research in this thread and back up this theory with a number of facts. I this this is worthy of pinning on the front page it is so well done. I especially thought this entry was very thought provoking.

Additions to this crime spree....

The murder of the couple on the farm...lets talk about missives:

1. Flashlight left behind...I already mentioned that, but;

2. Murders occurred in the evening which suggest that the suspect knew the layout of the house.

JT often bedded down where he was useful as a handyman. Dennis has a personal story from JT where he electrocuted an entire pig stock and was gone before the owners of the farm got home.

3. The LE investigation supposed that the suspect was a transient that traveled by train.

JT was known to have used the railway during this period to get around, and did handyman work on family farms in order to survive.

4. This is one of two women to have survived an attack by this suspect, and I must note that the media reported that her lower jaw had been torn away from her upper jaw with one of the shots.

JT loved to intertwine one crime into the next, and I see the lower jaw tearing of this victim to be the segway into the BD crime.


This last point (my bold) is very insightful. I would have missed it but it really does have great potential to tie the two crimes together when you think about it.
