Thanks so much for taking the time to respond.  It seems that we’ll unfortunately never know what is factually correct.  But in the landscape of possibilities we can still evaluate relative likelihood based on the amount of mental gymnastics engaged in.  So while I wouldn’t bet the house on Urik’s theory, I do like it more than most others because it’s pretty simple and produces words that are quite Zodiac-esque.  And I guess part of the fun of not knowing is having our own little pet preferences.  

What’s life without a little mystery?

Thanks again and I look forward to more installments of your most excellent podcast.

The whole Welsh ancestry thing I had forgotten about. It just makes me wonder, my SO is 100% Welsh, he’s traced his family tree (technically American and have been here since the 1600s in Northern PA. There is even a bit of inbreeding, at least at the cousin level a couple of too tight relationships. Could I say his hairline is maybe close, but I have never looked at the sketches and thought wow, looks just like your family!

I don’t know how you tack it down to Welsh ancestry, a picture would be interesting of his FIL. 

My SO looks a lot like his brother, but nothing like his father or mother. I think its interesting, but ethnicity just seems an odd way to determine things, except for like you say, it the looks remind him of someone. I am mostly Slav but you would never guess it. Even my grandmother made jokes about how maybe my genetic features came out because they had many travelers pass through her family’s villages in the Carpathian Mountains, and, well, who knows what happened there…

Another afterthought on the differences between what happened and what the author of the CJB letters claims:

CJB’s autopsy showed “numerous petechia in the skin of the forehead,” which [pretty much] indicates a strangulation attempt was made during the assault. The letters writer completely skips that fact and claims she went without a fight. But the assailant certainly would not forget that he tried and failed to strangle his chosen victim during their fight. He holds that back in the letter?

That was too much!

But then again the author of the CJB letters cut away the original edges from the paper he used – just as the Zodiac would later.

That was too much!
