New Zodiac Killer Website

Just over ten years ago, Michael Kelleher, Ph.D. and David Van Nuys, Ph.D. collaborated on an analysis of the Zodiac case. The fruit of their labor was the book This is the Zodiac Speaking: Into the Mind of a Serial Killer. In it, Kelleher tackled all aspects of the case and Van Nuys contributed his expert opinions by gleaning psychological insights from the Zodiac's letters. People who have established beliefs about the case likely will find areas in which they disagree with the authors - I know I have a few. Nonetheless, given the thorough treatment, valuable analysis and high-quality writing, the Zodiac community is fortunate to have this book.

In recent weeks, Michael Kelleher has taken on the role of editor at a newly launched website: With multiple people contributing to the website, including David Van Nuys, it is quite likely that the site will evolve into an interesting and valuable collection of Zodiac facts and opinions. I encourage you to check it out.

    The webpage decodes the Zodiac Killer’s “My name is–” symbols and letters, but it states that he adds another level of interpretation. Is his name David Wicks, Ricks, Vicks, Dicks or Hicks and then toys with a possible initial that according to my decoding should be S, C, or K? You’ll understand as you work through this one-page decoding. However, he won’t be hard to find because the three letters of NAM (Vietnam), decode to RIP, but if these letters are read backwards, it’s PIR, Parachute Infantry Regiment (U.S. Army). The website also gives some insight into the clues he left on that particular missive. On top of that, the 18 letters of EBEORIETEMETHHPITI is decoded to AG ATN NAPA I ZODC, and he then gives what appears to be the acronyms for a California police department. Check it out…
