This one sounds interesting, and came in the time when there were no confirmed Z letters sent.

Also, worth noting this came less than 2 months after the attack on Isobel Watson, who was quite possibly attacked by Z in the same area

Does the timing correspond with any of the questioned documents within the FBI files?

Not that I recall, we can double check for sure. Most of the questioned docs i recall being 1969-70. Dave, do you have a link to the last batch of FBI pages that were released? I seem to recall you had them posted someplace.

Question for you Morf. Do FOIA requests cost a lot of money?

Here’s the last batch of FBI files that you managed to obtain: http://www.zodiackillerciphers.com/?p=179. Is that what you’re looking for? Or the original files?

Interesting hint in the article is the word ‘hand-printed’. Imo that says the was written by hand in single letters, therefore not in fluent writing style. That would be, in combination with a cipher, quite a good indication that it could be another Zodiac letter.

Why did Edward J. Salmina receive such a letter? He is a sports editor of that small newspaper..may be it is possible to receive information from him regarding the letter? It is not. http://www.mocavo.com/Edward-Salmina-19 … 0603629057

The note was sent to the SFPD, btw.
"Novatan Receives ‘Zodiac’ Death Note sent to the homicide division of the San Francisco Police Department to determine if the note were printed by the zodiac killer."

Usually not, not unless they have to search above & beyond, or send you a lot of pages

Do we know any background information on Edward Salmina, such as where he grew up? Maybe he had a run in with Z when they were kids/teenagers and when Z found out he worked at a paper he took the opportunity to play a game with him. Or at least that’s how Z may have viewed it.

Ed Salmina
EXAMINER STAFF REPORT Published 4:00 am, Wednesday, June 28, 1995

NOVATO – Ed Salmina, a chronicler of Novato high school and community sports for more than 30 years, died Tuesday at age 50. The cause of death was not known.
Mr. Salmina joined the staff of the Novato Advance at age 17 and continued with the community newspaper as its sports editor until his death. His newspaper career was interrupted only by two years of military service, which included a tour of duty in Vietnam.
Mr. Salmina was a baseball enthusiast who funded, founded and managed a semi-pro team called the Novato Knicks. He also served for nearly 20 years as a Marin County sports correspondent for The Examiner.
Mr. Salmina had worked late Monday evening completing work on this week’s Advance sports page, friends said, and was discovered by his only survivor, his mother, Tuesday morning.
Services will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at Our Lady of Loretto Church, 1806 Novato Blvd. in Novato.<

Quote:

The Knicks will honor the memory of Ed Salmina, who died in 1995, and his mother, Marie Salmina, who died Feb. 5, with a tribute between games against the Oakland Expos on June 4, at 4 p.m., at Albert Park. Ed Salmina, who was sports editor of the Novato Advance for 37 years, owned, coached, managed and subsidized the team from 1962, when he was 17, until his death. Marie Salmina was a tireless booster of the team.
“Anytime Marie made an appearance at a game it was special,” said Knicks manager Chris Kenyon, who remembers Marie “traveling the high school fields collecting aluminum cans to redeem for us,” as well as searching for stray balls. “If people knew Eddie, they knew Marie,” he said. After her son’s death, he added, “It meant a lot to Marie to keep the Knicks going.”
Knicks coach and Novato native Brett Kim joined the team’s roster in 1985, when he was 15 and a student at San Marin High. “Marie was always so upbeat,” Kim said. “She was like the first lady of the Knicks. She was the link we had to Ed. She was a trooper. She was a quiet hero.”
Marie Salmina was also a mainstay of the Novato Historical Guild, a volunteer docent and archivist. A hiker, she had enormous energy, which also found outlets in her gardening and volunteering at Our Lady of Loretto Church.
Ed Salmina’s death wasn’t the only blow suffered by the Knicks in the 1990s. Tom Gordon, athletic director at Novato High School, president of the Novato Little League and a major sports advocate in town, took on the responsibilities of running the team. Then, only three years later, he too died.

Edward Salmina

Birth: Jul., 1945, USA
Death: 1995
California, USA

Ed was the patriarch of baseball in the town of Novato, California.

As editor of the Novato Advance, he was responsible for getting as many local youth names as possible into the weekly local publication.

In addition, Ed made sure that young baseball players had a place to play and often covered the price of umpires for the local Di Maggio teams as well as owned and managed the town’s Semi-Pro team, the Novato Knickerbockers.

Often times, Ed also announced games for the San Marin High School baseball team.

Ed passed away in 1995. Baseball and sports writing have never been the same in his town ever since.

Ed is sorely missed by many.

Burial:
Olema Cemetery
Olema
Marin County
California, USA
