Zodiac Description Letter

Zodiackiller.com Message Board: Letters: Zodiac Description Letter

By Hurley (Hurley) (spider-wb051.proxy.aol.com - on Saturday, October 21, 2000 - 06:53 pm:

I am referring to a letter printed on Jake's site.

Zodiac states: "I look like the description passed out when I do my thing, the rest of the time I look entirely different I shall not tell you what my descise consists of when I kill."

That statement is contradictory. I think he is bluffing. How much of a disguise is he wearing in the sketch? Maybe he doesn't really wear glasses and maybe he slicks back his hair?

I think he was afraid of being identified.

In Berryessa we know of a disguise. He is wearing a mask there. He also states he purchases costumes/ weapons through mail and one even out of state suggesting that he personally left the state when he bought it. So did he travel and is this where he committed his other murders that the Bay Area can not testify to?

You stated, "I think he was afraid of being identified." I'm trying not to...I'm..tr..ying...AAARGH! Here goes! This is simply profound. Now why would you ever pose the theory that a gun-toting maniac would ever want to-gasp!- disguise themselves? Good lord, man, this is simply preposterous! What's next- Zodiac was mean?

Lol! Let me put it this way; By looking at the sketches of Zodiac, it doesn't seem like much of a disguise.

The sketch looks pretty generic. It could have fit a lot of men. He did mention a disguise. Was he wearing a hair piece and does he not really wear glasses?

Any how, when I read his letter, it sounded to me like disguising himself was an after thought. Like maybe he thought "Oh darn, that looks like me! Maybe I should tell them it's me in a disguise!"

I don't believe this person was brilliant and I don't think he'd thought there would be survivors/ witnesses to identify him.

Also, would this lead to the disguise at LB? I don't remember off hand when that particular letter was written.

You said: "By looking at the sketches of Zodiac, it doesn't seem like much of a disguise." How would you know; what have you got to compare it to? Confess! Have you ever heard the expression "hide in plain sight?" The best disguises are subtle, but the effects of the disguise are profound. Hmmm...could YOU be...ZODIAC!

I said, and I shall repeat....If that sketch was a man in disguise, it was simple such as combing hair differently and maybe he really doesn't wear glasses...

hmmm, Let's see, I've never shot anyone with a NAIL GUN!.....

Just how many letters did you write to the newspaper after that?

By Oscar (Oscar) (pool0340.cvx5-bradley.dialup.earthlink.net - on Wednesday, November 01, 2000 - 12:21 am:

I wrote only four, as one was written by a disgruntled detective with a predilection for meatball subs.
The nail gun is a lot of fun- try it. Might I suggest that you aim it at your forehead? Have at it!

"Excuse me but I shall quote whatever I want".

Let's try that again: Excuse me, I shall quote whomever I want". BUSTED!

Do you have a sense of humor?

Good thing... and isn't it "soitenly?"

I believe you are right! What a horrific faux pas on my part. Egads! Now, go to bed.

Ah, yes, it all makes sense to me now...Oscar Mayer WIENER!

Hm, "Don't quote anymore astrology" "it's quote whomever." Oscar, please tell me who astrology is?

By Hurley (Hurley) (spider-wk051.proxy.aol.com - on Friday, November 03, 2000 - 09:09 am:

Oh, Oscar, PS, How could I ever let that go??

Where is your other set of quotations marks? (I'm sure I have an idea)

p.s. Oscar 2004! Whoo hoo! Ride the Wave even if he is caught in a rip tide!

Yee-hoo! My fumbling fingers got the better of me, so I concede your small victory. Anyway, I think you understand the 'goof' that was intended. Hee hee. I still don't place much weight behind the astrology angle, but I think that it is worth checking out...as everything should be.
Thanks for your comments on the other discussion page. The 'personal' is often where the fun is, at least to my warped mind, but it is all in jest.

p.s. Hurley in 2004! Ride the wave, even if it is in his pants!
