The senseless murder would shock the quiet town of Vallejo, California and the surrounding areas. What the police and public could not foresee is that these murders would be just the beginning of the infamous saga of a killer that would later become known the world over as the Zodiac. Join Mike Ferguson and Mike Morford as they take deep dive into one of the most fascinating unsolved cases in true crime history. In this premier episode we cover the first two attacks.
An unknown killer has attacked two couples in lover’s lane situations. 3 of the 4 victims involved died. The 1 surviving victim gave limited details. The killer had initial communications to police taking credit for both attacks.
In this episode we focus on additional communications made by the killer. This time the communication goes to various newspapers and includes ciphers that the killer says will reveal his true identity.
A third attack on a couple occurs but the location and the MO is somewhat different this time. However, the killer does leave a clue at the scene to let investigators know there is a serial killer on the loose. And soon the killer will give police the name that he wants to be called.
Join Mike Ferguson and Mike “Morf” Morford as they walk through the evolution of this infamous serial killer. Dive into the ciphers in detail as well as the 3rd attack.
