Why you may have been seeing headlines about the "He stole the identity of a dead 8-year-old, Police want to know what he was hiding from" and why of all the people living under false names and aliases this would a natinal headline story. The reaseon is the FBI thinks he may have been the Zodiac Killer and was using the stolen identity to cover his tracks. His name is Joseph Newton Chandler III. why-do-people-think-Robert-Ivan-Nichols-could-be-the-zodiac-killer Download Attachment
If Zodiac were to end his own life, I feel like he would leave his confession. Particularly if he was not close to his children. I’ve never understood how an attention-whore like Zodiac was able to keep his identity a secret. He strikes me as the type that would leave a final f$&k you to the police and leave a clear legacy for himself as the most clever of killers. If zodiac died suddenly or had a close-knit family that would be harmed by this disclosure, I could imagine him keeping quiet, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with this guy. There are a million other crimes he may have been running from....it wasn’t necessarily the Z crimes.
Any updates on this guy, his connections to northern Cal?
It is not mentioned in the above article, but I believe that the last communication this guy had with his family was a letter mailed from Vallejo in 1965. I find it curious that this guy was considered as possibly being Zodiac when no evidence tied him to the crimes and then later it is discovered that he was in Vallejo in the mid-1960s. That is a strong clue.

cherylh: A problem with some internet crime researchers who blame a lot of crimes on their favorite murderer: When DNA results come out identifying the actual killer, they quietly delete the entries on that particular crime.

cherylh: Since the emergence of DNA familial tracking, this has been seen on numerous websites. It doesn't speak well for the objectivity and honesty of the researchers in question.

cherylh: It's key to remember that for every mistaken murderer ID, a real murderer isn't being identified. And sometimes defense attorneys use these weak theories in their courtroom arguments -- to convince juries that internet "experts" identified other suspects.

elir: For people supporting MurderInc's continued presence here - what do suggest we do? Allow MurderInc to call members morons if they disagree?Give MurderInc an exemption from harassing and mocking people that s/she doesn't like?

elir: Tried giving short breaks to cool down and the cycle went on and on, if anything he/she pushes back more, challenging me to do something. MurderInc is good at data mining, no question. How do we manage the behavioral component? I am open to suggestions

nowhereman: everyone watch that Night Stalker documentary on Netflix... I wasn't familiar with that much of the details it was very good. basically from the perspective of the main detectives so you get a feel of how difficult it was to identify him

nowhereman: I'm old enough to remember no internet, the internet is an awesome thing but it can also be a cesspool. It's like a major city...there's all these cool neighborhoods and resturants but then some other places you better watch your back

sammyt: The Night Stalker documentary was really good. I didn't know that Ramirez had so many additional victims.

sammyt: How were we ever arguing that EAR could have been versatile in terms of MO and victimology? Ramirez was already proof such an offender could exist. Ramirez was a killer, and also a rapist, and also a child abductor.
Jan 18, 2021 17:19:08 GMT
sammyt: His victims included children, couples and the elderly. Ramirez committed home invasion murders and rapes, but also street murders and abductions.
