Zodiac Killer Case Still Unsolved, ‘Case Breakers’ ID Is Based on Circumstantial Evidence

I’ve been down this road before. They made a movie about it. Maybe…maybe not. Every few years someone says they figured if out. Let’s hope they got the guy.

An independent team of forensic investigators claim they have identified the Zodiac Killer as Gary Francis Poste, a man who died three years ago whose darkroom contained forensic evidence and photos connecting him to the murders.

Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback said Wednesday that Poste could not have been Bates’ killer during an interview with The San Francisco Chronicle, the same paper that Zodiac sent ciphers and multiple letters bragging of his exploits in the years immediately following the murders.

“Is there a chance that (the Case Breakers suspect) killed Cheri Jo Bates? No,” Railsback told the paper. “If you read what they (the Case Breakers) put out, it’s all circumstantial evidence. It’s not a whole lot.”

“If the Cheri Jo Bates case was actually related to the Zodiac Killer, we wouldn’t be holding that back, especially 55 years later,” Railsback added in comments to Nexstar. “Unequivocally, we are saying that the Cheri Jo Bates case and the Zodiac Killer case are not related.”
