In Search Of The Zodiac Killer

Continuing The Search For America's Most Elusive Serial Killer.

Crime Scene Photos

The Zodiac murdered five people between December of 1968 and October of 1969.I have posted the photos from those crime scenes on this page. I have done so for the specific purpose of reminding those who visit this site of the brutal nature of these crimes, and that the person responsible for committing them has yet to be apprehended. It's quite possible that this man has continued to live a very good life while his victims lie in their graves and their families mourn for them seemingly without any hope of justice ever being served against the person responsible for their deaths. This is not fair. And it is my sincerest hope that this man will be captured and exposed for the despicable murderous coward he is. But time is running out, and the chances of him facing justice for these crimes grow less and less with each passing day.

Message written by the Zodiac on Bryan Hartnell's car door on September 27th, 1969.

Phone booth located at 1231 main street in Napa, California. The Zodiac used this telephone to call the Napa police department to claim reponsibility for the attack at Lake Berryessa. Note the receiver hanging from the phone. After the Zodiac finished talking to the police dispatcher, he didn't hang up the phone but left it dangling. The phone booth has since been removed.

Another view of the phone booth above.
