I just noticed that newspapers.com recently added issues of the SF Examiner paper during the Zodiac years. They now cover the years 1865–2014. Many Zodiac-related articles are now available in higher resolution than what was previously available.

Example:

I’d love to grab all the articles but I don’t have the time at the moment. Does anyone else have a Newspapers.com account and would be willing to take this on?

Thanks dorachak!


…they may be dealing with one or more ersatz Zodiacs–other psychotics eager to get into the act, or perhaps even other murderers eager to lay their crimes at the real Zodiac’s doorstep. L.A. Times, 1969

Thanks for posting these Doranchak.

That Oct. 1st Examiner story says San Jose police were wondering if Zodiac killed two girls there. Anyone know more about that?

Thanks again. The guy confessed to those murders but was cleared in Zodiac killings since he was living out of state at the time.
