The killer apparently exited the second car and walked toward the Rambler, possibly ordering the couple out of the Rambler.
Jensen appeared to have exited the car first, yet when Faraday was halfway out, the killer apparently shot him in the head.
The killer then shot Jensen five times in the back as she fled; her body was found 28 feet from the car.
The killer then drove off. While the couple sat in Ferrin's car, a second car drove into the lot and parked alongside them but almost immediately drove away.
Returning about 10 minutes later, this second car parked behind them. The killer directed the flashlight into Mageau's and Ferrin's eyes before shooting at them, firing five times.
Both victims were hit, and several bullets had passed through Mageau and into Ferrin. The killer walked away from the car but upon hearing Mageau's moaning, returned and shot each victim twice more before driving off.
The caller also took credit for the murders of Jensen and Faraday six-and-a-half months earlier. Mageau survived the attack despite being shot in the face, neck and chest.
The solution to Zodiac's symbol cipher. The meaning, if any, of the final eighteen letters has not been determined. The nearly identical letters—subsequently described by a psychiatrist to have been written by "someone you would expect to be brooding and isolated "  —took credit for the shootings at Lake Herman Road and Blue Rock Springs.
Each letter also included one-third of a symbol cryptogram which the killer claimed contained his identity.
The killer demanded they be printed on each paper's front page or he would "cruse [ sic ] around all weekend killing lone people in the night then move on to kill again, until I end up with a dozen people over the weekend.
The Chronicle published its third of the cryptogram on page four of the next day's edition. Stiltz as saying "We're not satisfied that the letter was written by the murderer" and requested the writer send a second letter with more facts to prove his identity.
The letter was a response to Chief Stiltz's request for more details that would prove he had killed Faraday, Jensen and Ferrin. In it, the Zodiac included details about the murders which had not yet been released to the public, as well as a message to the police that when they cracked his code "they will have me.
It contained a misspelled message in which the killer seemed to reference The Most Dangerous Game. He also said he was collecting slaves for the afterlife.
No name appears in the decoded text, and the killer said that he would not give away his identity because it would slow down or stop his slave collection.
He approached them with a gun, which Hartnell believed to be a. The hooded man claimed to be an escaped convict from a jail with a two-word name, in either Colorado or Montana a police officer later inferred he had been referring to a jail in Deer Lodge, Montana , where he had killed a guard and subsequently stolen a car, explaining that he now needed their car and money to go to Mexico, as the vehicle he had been driving was "too hot".
He had brought precut lengths of plastic clothesline and told Shepard to tie up Hartnell, before he tied her up.
The killer checked, and tightened Hartnell's bonds after discovering Shepard had bound Hartnell's hands loosely. Hartnell initially believed this event to be a weird robbery, but the man drew a knife and stabbed them both repeatedly, Hartnell suffering six and Shepard ten wounds in the process.
The caller first stated to the operator that he wished to "report a murder - no, a double murder,"  before stating that he had been the perpetrator of the crime.
Detectives were able to lift a still-wet palm print from the telephone but were never able to match it to any suspect.
After hearing their screams for help, a man and his son who were fishing in a nearby cove discovered the victims and summoned help by contacting park rangers.
Napa County Sheriff's deputies Dave Collins and Ray Land were the first law enforcement officers to arrive at the crime scene. Shepard lapsed into a coma during transport to the hospital and never regained consciousness.
She died two days later, but Hartnell survived to recount his tale to the press. Two weeks later on October 11, , a white male passenger entered the cab driven by Paul Stine at the intersection of Mason and Geary Streets one block west from Union Square in San Francisco requesting to be taken to Washington and Maple Streets in Presidio Heights.
For reasons unknown, Stine drove one block past Maple to Cherry Street; the passenger then shot Stine once in the head with a 9mm , took Stine's wallet and car keys, and tore away a section of Stine's bloodstained shirt tail.
They observed a man wiping the cab down before walking away towards the Presidio , one block to the north. Fouke estimated the white male pedestrian to be to years old, 5'10" tall with a crew cut, similar to but slightly older than the description of the teenagers who observed the killer in and out of Stine's cab as a toyear-old crewcut white male about 5-footinch 1.
The police radio dispatcher had however initially alerted officers to be on the lookout for a black suspect, so Fouke and Zelms drove past him without stopping; the mix-up in descriptions remains unexplained.
A search ensued, but no suspects were found. This was the last officially confirmed kill by the Zodiac Killer.
The Stine murder was initially thought to be a routine cabbie-killing, a robbery that has escalated.
However quickly, on October 13, the San Francisco Chronicle received a new letter from Zodiac containing a piece of bloody shirt and taking credit for the killing.
The three teen witnesses worked with a police artist to prepare a composite sketch of Stine's killer; a few days later, this police artist returned, working with the witnesses to prepare a second composite sketch of the killer.
Detectives Bill Armstrong and Dave Toschi were assigned to the case. On October 14, , the Chronicle received another letter from the Zodiac, this time containing a swatch of Paul Stine's shirt tail as proof he was the killer; it also included a threat about killing schoolchildren on a school bus.
Lee Bailey or Melvin Belli , appear on A. Bailey was not available, but Belli did appear on the show. Dunbar appealed to the viewers to keep the lines open, and eventually, someone claiming to be the Zodiac called several times and said his name was "Sam".
Belli agreed to meet with him in Daly City, but the suspect never showed up. On November 8, , the Zodiac mailed a card with another cryptogram consisting of characters.
The character cipher has never been decoded. On November 9, , the Zodiac mailed a seven-page letter stating that two policemen stopped and actually spoke with him three minutes after he shot Stine.
Excerpts from the letter were published in the Chronicle on November 12 including the Zodiac's claim;   that same day, Officer Don Fouke wrote a memo explaining what had happened the night of Stine's murder.
On December 20, , exactly one year after the murders of David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen, the Zodiac mailed a letter to Belli that included another swatch of Stine's shirt; the Zodiac said he wanted Belli to help him.
The following murder victims are suspected to be victims of Zodiac, though none have been confirmed:. She was seven months pregnant and had her month-old daughter beside her.
She pulled off the road and stopped. The man in the car parked behind her, approached her car, stated that he observed that her right rear wheel was wobbling, and offered to tighten the lug nuts.
After finishing his work, the man drove off; yet when Johns pulled forward to re-enter the highway the wheel almost immediately came off the car.
The man returned, offering to drive her to the nearest gas station for help. She and her daughter climbed into his car.
During the ride the car passed several service stations but the man did not stop. For about 90 minutes he drove back and forth around the backroads near Tracy.
When Johns asked why he was not stopping, he would change the subject. When the driver finally stopped at an intersection, Johns jumped out with her daughter and hid in a field.
The driver searched for her using his flashlight telling her that he would not hurt her, before eventually giving up.
Unable to find her, he got back into the car and drove off. Johns hitched a ride to the police station in Patterson. When Johns gave her statement to the sergeant on duty, she noticed the police composite sketch of Paul Stine's killer and recognized him as the man who had abducted her and her child.
When her car was found, it had been gutted and torched. Most accounts say he threatened to kill her and her daughter while driving them around,  but at least one police report disputes that.
Zodiac continued to communicate with authorities for the remainder of via letters and greeting cards to the press. Brian McDonnell two days after the bombing at Park Station in Golden Gate Park  but added "there is more glory to killing a cop than a cid [ sic ] because a cop can shoot back.
Zodiac sent a greeting card postmarked April 28, , to the Chronicle. On the back of the card, the Zodiac threatened to use the bus bomb soon unless the newspaper published the full details he wrote.
He also wanted to start seeing people wearing "some nice Zodiac butons [ sic ]. In a letter postmarked June 26, , the Zodiac stated he was upset that he did not see people wearing Zodiac buttons.
He wrote, "I shot a man sitting in a parked car with a. Richard Radetich, a week earlier, on June Radetich died 15 hours later.
SFPD denies the Zodiac was involved in this murder; it remains unsolved. On the image of Mount Diablo , the Zodiac had drawn a crossed-circle similar to the ones he had included in previous correspondence.
At the top of the crossed circle, he placed a zero, and then a three, six, and a nine. The accompanying instructions stated that the zero was "to be set to Mag.
The cipher was never decoded, and the alleged bomb was never located. In a letter to the Chronicle postmarked July 24, , the Zodiac took credit for Kathleen Johns's abduction, four months after the incident.
The Mt. On October 7, , the Chronicle received a three-by-five inch card signed by the Zodiac with the and a small cross reportedly drawn with blood.
The card's message was formed by pasting words and letters from an edition of the Chronicle , and thirteen holes were punched across the card.
Inspectors Armstrong and Toschi agreed it was "highly probable" the card came from the Zodiac. On October 27, , Chronicle reporter Paul Avery who had been covering the Zodiac case received a Halloween card signed with a letter 'Z' and the Zodiac's cross circle symbol.
Handwritten on the card was the note "Peek-a-boo, you are doomed. Bates was found dead the next morning, a short distance from the library, between two abandoned houses slated to be demolished for campus renovations.
The wires in her Volkswagen 's distributor cap had been pulled out. She was brutally beaten and stabbed to death. A man's Timex watch with a torn wristband was found nearby.
A month later, on November 29, , nearly identical typewritten letters were mailed to the Riverside police and the Riverside Press-Enterprise , titled "The Confession".
The author claimed responsibility for the Bates murder, providing details of the crime that were not released to the public.
The author warned that Bates "is not the first and she will not be the last. It was signed with what were assumed to be the initials rh.
During the investigation, Sherwood Morrill, California's top "Questioned Documents" examiner, expressed his opinion that the poem was written by the Zodiac.
On April 30, , exactly six months after the Bates murder, Bates' father Joseph, the Press-Enterprise , and the Riverside police all received nearly identical letters: in a handwritten scrawl the Press-Enterprise and police copies read "Bates had to die there will be more", with a small scribble at the bottom that resembled the letter Z.
Joseph Bates' copy read "She had to die there will be more", this time without the Z signature. In the letter he credited the police, instead of Avery, for discovering his "Riverside activity, but they are only finding the easy ones, there are a hell of a lot more down there.
Paul Avery and the Riverside Police Department maintain that the Bates homicide was not committed by the Zodiac, but did concede some of the Bates letters may have been his work to claim credit falsely.
On March 22, , a postcard to the Chronicle , addressed to "Paul Averly" and believed to be from the Zodiac, appeared to claim responsibility for the disappearance of Donna Lass on September 6, Title: The Zodiac Killer An elusive serial killer known as the Zodiac terrorizes the San Francisco Bay in the late s, while detectives aim to stop him before he claims more victims.
