Bustle publishes quite a few articles that reference the Zodiac Killer in some way, shape, or form. There was this one from a few months back that I was surprised to learn included one of my tweets. This is all well and good. Generally, the more references to the Zodiac Killer, the better. Of course, there are counterexamples to that statement; a few that immediately come to mind include: the idiotic Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer meme that, for some reason, people find hilarious on twitter and a certain someone who indefatigably claims the Zodiac Killer never existed. But, overall, the more the better.
Meanwhile, the Netflix miniseries Making a Murderer has been making a splash recently by garnering significant media attention — some good, some bad, but undeniably, it’s getting attention. Personally, I am unable to offer an opinion about the miniseries since I haven’t seen it. I hope to get around to watching it at some point; but, for the moment, it’s just not very high on my list of priorities.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, these two observable truths about our world collided in the form of a bustle.com article that uses Making a Murderer as a basis to suggest that other murder cases are also deserving of documentaries. Yes, you guessed it, the case of the Zodiac is one of the mentioned murder mysteries.
Truth be told, there have been quite a few documentaries about the Zodiac Killer, especially if you include the documentary television shows. Of course, I say there’s always room for one more, especially if it’s done well.
Another mystery on the list is that of JonBenet Ramsey, which interestingly means the author covered entries three and four from the documentary series America’s 60 Greatest Unsolved Mysteries and Crimes.
