Honestly I think the Zodiac killing is an example of either one man who uses another to do his dirty work, or someone who lives somewhere nearly no one would find him (like Ted K, how he was found was a pretty interesting deal all in and of itself) and that during the time it happened, he was something the moviemakers today would write about. He was ahead of his time (not to put it in a sick way, just the way the era was talked about it was just so different, twisted, pick the word)
That is why I think it won't ever be found, same as the EARONS case too (sorry team) there are just too many outliers and twisted facts, speculation, and the media's interests on how to present it at the time etc. Hell even the book was fictionalized a lot to make it seem more readable but that's just a bs way to say it's the only way we could make as much money as we set out to. It's * getting thrown at the fan, sadly.
Take the Zodiac movie for example. Great, but fiction, and yet most of the unknowing public believe that to be the fact before they even delve into the real zodiac mystery. THEN they see a new book every 5 years publicized with some loonie claiming they have detailed (speculated) evidence that someone they know is the guy. You get 58% of the way there, but in the real world that just isnt enough. Sad but true.
Like that awesome True Detectives quote when they talk about not getting everyone and he replies "We got our guy, and that's enough" or something to that effect.
I think there's significantly more hope and current LE investigation with EARONS than an almost totally reactive "dead case" like Zodiac where there's a formulaic response from LE should new information arise. Louis Meyer, Jack Tarrance, Deborah Perez...this latest guy...who's to blame LE or anyone who follows the case??? I get the feeling that there is more being held back by LE and more activity with the EARONS case than has happened w/ the Zodiac case in the last couple of decades...rightly or wrongly.
I've posted here before that I thought that Sudden Terror ( although needing an editor ) is considerably more matter of fact than Robert Graysmith's Zodiac book which is not only full of "narrative flow" writings but suppositions and faux facts that don't match the record. You still hear people say "they'll be hard pressed to find a better suspect than Art Allen" just based on Graysmith's book and not on any further knowledge of the case.
Crompton ( who was part of the investigation ) didn't do a disservice to the case while Graysmith ( a political cartoonist / writer ) who fancied ( and/or fancies ) himself "part of the team" IMO definitely did...there might even be something to be said in the positive about EARONS being a relatively lesser known case than Zodiac. That's probably just someone talking who's been interested in the Zodiac case for over 40 years and has seen it go from an active case to a recurrent "15 minutes of fame" PR/media event. If I remember correctly, there were over 40 people who confessed to the 1947 "Black Dahlia" murder in L.A. ( which got tremendous publicity ) so I guess things haven't changed very much....
That 55 clip is from when Bo Diddley managed to * off Ed Sullivan! Sullivan wanted him to play Tennessee Ernie Fords 16 Tons. He waltzed onstage and started playing his own tune. What a badass!! He was never invited back.
nowhereman: CBK totally was

nowhereman: can't confirm it, but he went completely silent the day JJD was taken into custody. Recent activity before that. I think he was last logged in after the arrest, but there is a lag before you would "time out"

cherylh: It would be great if the investigators or law enforcement would confirm JJD's participation.
Sept 14, 2020 18:36:34 GMT
cherylh: It would be interesting to look back at his posts.

artbe4words: It has been said by others that CBK asked many questions about DNA and then later would delete his questions. I heard he deleted a lot of his comments. It did appear he was trying to lead people down a trail that had nothing to do with the truth too.

f1guyus: I would love to think that Joe spent his golden years thinking about getting rolled up by the “samples” he spread around.
Sept 17, 2020 1:43:11 GMT
warren: I think about that too. But its not the police I worry about knocking on the door, but one of those samples I spread around all growed up.

elir: my understanding is that cbk did delete comments , but to be fair other members have done that as well. some,upon leaving the sub, have asked me to delete all of their posts.it is odd but not as uncommon as one might think.

mtf65: elir, did kNr and Trick delete posts?
Sept 23, 2020 1:17:18 GMT
elir: I havent checked for them but many members have deleted their posts, I have deleted some of my own posts.
Sept 23, 2020 3:46:23 GMT
steelbike: It would be interesting to find out that the ToT and KnR poster(s) had been JJD because of the things that they had insinuated.
