I recently became more interested in the Los Angeles Times articles on Zodiac when I noticed them using the term No 5 and Zodiac then using "no nine" in the same manner in the letter to Belli.

There were many, many Zodiac articles written in the L.A. Times.

1969 ARTICLES – FOUR in 1969 were front page headlines:

*10/15: Chilling Portrait of Madness (FIRST ZODIAC ARTICLE I COULD FIND) – PAGE 1

*10/16: Zodiac Kills Fifth Victim – PAGE 1

10/17: School Bus Drivers Alerted – BA8

*10/19: Hunt Pushed for Zodiac Killer – PAGE AA

10/21: LE Agencies Combine: PAGE 3

10/23: Call to Belli "I want help" – PAGE 1

10/24: Zodiac Calls Belli Again – PAGE 3

11/9: Teacher Poisened – PAGE A

*11/12: He’s Killed Seven – PAGE 1

11/22: Man, 33 Shot to Death by Police not Zodiac – PAGE A10

12/28: Letter to Belli – PAGE B

*I have these articles.

That link is defunct. The L.A. Times archives moved to Newspapers.com.

Not sure I want to re-sub (since Zodiac only sent one letter to them)…has anyone else looked?
