|~ Part of Zodiac Killer's letter|
The Zodiac Killer was a serial killer who was active from the late 1960s to the early 1970s. He is claimed to have killed 20-28 people in total, even up to 37, but only 5 were confirmed dead and 2 injured. He operated in Northern California between December 1968 and October 1969 and his targets were four men and three women between the ages of 16 and 29. His weapon of choice was a gun, although he used a knife during the attack on September 27th, 1969, at Lake Berryessa. He used cryptic writing in his letters that sent to the police (intentionally mocking them) and is infamous for his identity never being completely known even to this day. There were many suspects in the case of Zodiac Killer, but most of them were eliminated. He is/was verified to be white racially.
