This made national news, and there are a lot more questions than answers:

There’s no official (or even unofficial) connection made with Zodiac, but something screams “Zodiac” to me. Area is right. Age is right. 

I’d like to learn more about this due.

Guy seems to be more of a high roller than Zodiac, who did not even have a matched set of tires on his car.

That was too much!

Well, he only would have been 31 in 1969,  so it’s possible he found his wealth later on. 

Other than the tire tracks, there’s very little that points to Z’s socio-economic class.

I saw that and did not think Zodiac at all, but appreciate your drawing attention to this.  I can’t find a photo of him anywhere on the web yet.

 

Some interesting information here, assume the same Lew, about the murder in 1967 –

I’ve been unable to find any photographs of him either. I am beginning to suspect that he might be of Chinese descent which, obviously, would eliminate him as Zodiac. That said, I’d like to confirm that.

Johnny Bocktune Lew is asian, born in Hong Kong July 4th, 1937, look 100% asian (I have seen photos of him in old newspapers from 1960s/70s) and he is 6 ” , so no Zodiac.

So far, no one dared to open the trunk.
