The Zodiac Killer is arguably the most notorious serial killer in the history of the United States, who terrorized Northern California during the 1960s and killed possibly over 30 people.
For several years many people wondered just who the Zodiac Killer really was as his identity remained a mystery until now as it seems his identity has finally been revealed.
According to Fox News, a group of investigators claim the man who terrorized the San Francisco area in the late 1960s was Gary Francis Poste. Police were unable to catch the man and it turns out he died back in 2018.
It was reported that a team of more than 40 detectives, journalists and military intelligence officers made up the so-called Case Breakers, who believe Poste is the one responsible for a 1966 murder in the SoCal city of Riverside.
The Zodiac Killer remains connected to 5 murders in 1968 and 1969. He would always mock police officers by sending riddles and codes in letters to the San Francisco Chronicle.
It was said that the team spent years going through new forensic evidence and photos from Poste’s darkroom. The team was said to have found a photo that featured scars on Poste’s forehead that matched scars on a sketch of the Zodiac.
“So you’ve got to know Gary’s full name in order to decipher these anagrams. I just don’t think there’s any other way anybody would have figured it out.”
One of the world’s greatest mysteries has finally been revealed, but it is simply too little too late as Gary Francis Poste wasn’t brought to justice for all his crimes.
