Das ist die Krypto-Sensation des Jahrzehnts: Die seit 51 Jahren ungelöste zweite Nachricht des Zodiac-Killers wurde von Lesern dieses Blogs dechiffriert.
David Oranchak, a leading expert on the cryptograms of the Zodiac Killer, has published a video. It’s a must-see for everybody interested in this case.

In 1991, an unknown person sent a number of letters to the presenter of the TV show “America’s Most Wanted”. The anonymous writer claimed to have committed 23 crimes. Some of the letters were encrypted in a similar style as the Zodiac Killer messages.
A few years after the Zodiac murders, an unknown person sent a letter to an address in Albany, NY, claiming that he was the Zodiac Killer and that he intended to start killing again. A few lines of this letter are encrypted. The cleartext is unknown.
20 years after the last message of the infamous Zodiac Killer an unknown person sent a Zodiac-style postcard to a California newspaper. As far as I know, it has never been deciphered.
