Investigators have finally been able to crack down and solve the 1960s serial murders committed by the infamous Zodiac Killer (at least we believe so). The Zodiac Killer has also been tied to a sixth murder in the San Fransisco area through this investigation.

The Case Breakers, a group of 40 investigators who have tackled various unsolved mysteries such as the 1971 D.B. Cooper case, have identified a man by Gary Francis Poste as the Zodiac Killer. The suspect was living very close to the areas of the six murders at the time of the crimes, and many of his neighbors have spoken up with suspicions about the man.

One of Poste’s neighbors, who only went by Gwen, stated, “As I’m an adult thinking back, it all kind of makes sense now.” She continues, “I didn’t put two and two together until I got older. It hit me full-blown that Gary’s the Zodiac.” The woman had memories of Poste being abusive toward others, and having a knack for shooting guns.

Investigators have also been able to decode some of the Zodiac’s cipher messages that have been impossible to solve before. According to the Case Breakers, when they removed the letters of Gary’s full name from the code, a new message appeared. They claim that there couldn’t have been “any other way anybody would have figured it out.”

In light of this discovery, investigators have been contacting people that were connected to Poste in the past. Most of them were younger men whom Poste acted as a father figure towards. Some of them claim that they ran a crime posse, with Poste as their leader. The majority of these young men still refuse to give any information about Poste’s activities, even though he died in 2018. Their silence is even more damning evidence of his crimes, since they are still afraid of the consequences of revealing Poste’s truth.

Since Poste is deceased, there will most likely be no concrete answer to whether he was the Zodiac Killer or not. With all of the evidence, it is hard to believe that he isn’t the infamous serial killer, but some still have their doubts. The wrap-up of this case is similar to that of Jack the Ripper, an English serial killer from the late 19th century, where there can never be an exact answer because there can be no witnesses or confessions.

Everyone is suspenseful on whether Poste’s accusation will remain, or if this accusation will be debunked like many suspects before. As more information comes out, will the proof be solidified or completely dissolved? Should we buy the Case Breakers’ “definite” answer?
