His latest post implies that he doesn’t know what the thing is at all. 

You’re assuming the SCSD’s interest in the Halloween card was because of the goop Zodiac added. Meanwhile, I’m not making that assumption. I don’t know for certain the source of interest. It’s as simple as that.

Mike R and Chaucer on how it has been characterized at times their eyes over the years in the thread on your forum, which I guess lead to some hope solving Bennallack could solve the Zodiac case reading that.  If it is just the numbers on the card definitely not as interesting to me than a stronger tie, just my opinion.

Did not know there was “goop”.

If there was an “extremely gross” item that wasn’t Zodiac’s semen then it could have been a piece of Nancy Bennallack’s skin or flesh from the stabbing, which again would almost definitively link Richard Davis to the Halloween card. Nothing about numbers or clues strikes me as particularly “gross”.

Exactly, where I was leaning (and hoping) all this time.

Wow…you bring up a great point:

1. Now it is proven that Z did not kill Nancy Marie Bennallack, as long as Richard John Davis (RJD) wasn’t Z himself (was not).

2. The halloween card was sent on Oct 27th, 1970.

3. The halloween card might be a fake, e.g. from copycat Richard John Davis.

4. Still considering the halloween card to be “real”, it raises one question – who is victim no. 14?

 

On Oct. 5th the ‘Some-of-them-fought’ mentioned 13 victims; however this one could have been fake, too. However, on June 26, 1970, Zodiac sent an authentic letter claiming 12 victims. So he did one month later; but claiming 13 victims (Mikado letter; removed link ). Before, it seems that Z had killed one person from 24th to 26th of July, reassuring after the Kathleen Johns letter. 

Whatsoever, Z killed his victim no. 14 in the time frame of July 26, 1970, and the halloween card, October 27, 1970. IF NOT, the card is not authentic but might be e.g. from Richard John Davis. 

Six months later, however, Z had claimed 17 victims in a very authentic LA Times letter. Thus, likely some letters had ‘disappeared’, eg. no. 15, 16, too. 

I do not know about any other potential victim in the timeframe between “MIKADO” and “HALLOWEEN” than Charles Lorainne Hollingsworth, missing from Lake Tahoe.

Phyllis O’Brien Carson went officially missing on the 26th but maybe she was reported a few days later than she had actually disappeared? If that was the case, this would make her a very likely Z victim (as I often had mentioned/thought). Had her clothes been disarranged? No other potential victims, in that time frame, known to me. 

IF THE HALLOWEEN card was fake, however, this time frame would have the need to be extended:

 

Shirley Elizabeth Stevens 

Robin Ann Graham

Vickie Lynne Miner 

Sunny Lyn Dagowitz 

Shannon Caprola

Marian Calhoon

Noah Alba

Christine ‘Christy’ Marie Eastin

Linda Christine Kanes

 

Four (!) of those could/shoulf be victims no. 14, 15, 16 and 17. Also, there was one Jane Doe in Twenty-nine palms, near Riverside (Case File 1222UFCA). Let’s have a look at the ones with names:

LINDA CHRISTINE KANES was in the Napa area, thus she might be considered very, very likely a Z VICTIM. A second would be CAROL BETH HILBURN. Now guess what – she was a cocktail waitress, too. However her case is rather like the Bennalack one.

The others of this list were rather LA related. This makes two – who had been the other ones? Or is the halloween card FAKE with PHYLLIS O’BRIEN victim no 14? He never had claimed her…, had he lived in that area (Yettner Road, Stockton)?

We should consider to get a better focus on LCK and CBH, imo. Also, the halloween card is not necessarily considered to be real (if one has a different opinion – who should be victim no. 13; if not Hollingsworth?).

Thoughts.. 

UPDATE: 

Just learned that Linda Christine Kanes was killed directly after she had left Pacific Union College – this is a very strong lead as Mike Mageau went there, too – meaning a direct connection between Zodiac, Mageau/Shepard and Linda!! Mageau and Shepard went back to PUC, after the Angwin seventh adventists market, before they got attacked at Lake Berryessa! THUS, THE PACIFIC UNION COLLEGE IS THE KEY! Also, not to forget, Shepard’s ties to the Riverside / Loma Linda area.. 

Linda was believed to have left from PUC towards ‘Meadowwood [corr.] Country Club’ St Helena – she had not appeared there – and was found only a few minutes distance away from the PUC. Her car was still at Howell Mountain road.

This, imo, ties Z to the PUC! Two victims ‘accidentially’ from that same school certainly did not happen by chance over a 1.5 year time span! 

A theory:

Some nice details, including Paul Avery dealing with the case as a potential Z crime:

removed link

“footprints of an ‘apparently very large man'”
“During the week after Lynda Kanes’ corpse was discovered, deputies found a bizarre collection of items in the immediate vicinity of the body and (..) they do admit there is a connection with the macabre crime”
“Paul Avery shook his head in disbelief, not because he felt it couldn’t be Williams [Willy the woodcutter] but rather because it had seemed they were so close to the Zodiac Killer.”

Also, very much Z style, a 33 foot white NYLON ROPE had been found in her corpses’ vicinity.

Half of a military bag was found, too, with “CAMCIA USS 772-999” written in it. The telephone nummber seems to be a military one. “CAMCIA” is a name, most likely of the person who it had previously belonged to.

UPDATE:

First I thought the number “772-999” might refer to the predial for Florida with “CAMCIA” most likely being the bag’s owner’s name. The bag was ripped into two parts, so I thought the rest of the phone number could have been on the other part of the bag. 

It seems to be different, however:

USS stands for “United States Ship”! This is great news as we do know that Z had military/navy background! So, if the crime was committed by Z  – the nylon rope almost speaks for itself – Z most likely could have stolen the bag from Mr. Camcia as being one of his veterans?

I feel like with this case every time there is some sort of new proven information put forth that might provide some answers, it only creates a lot more questions.
