The Zodiac letter recived August 4, 1969 ended with "NO ADDRESS"

This particular letter was very likely sent Aug 2nd, 1969 due to that it was recived on MONDAY Aug 4th, which means that it probably was posted SATURDAY Aug 2nd (or 3rd), 1969.

Now I have wondered why Zodiac wrote the last sentence NO ADDRESS and I noticed that the second D in ADDRESS was very narrow and very well could be read as a O.

One of a sudden I read it as NO ADORE SS

Then I turned NO and it became ZO = ZO ADORE SS which could stand for ZOdiac ADORE SS

Or if I swich the ZO it become OZ ADORE SS

August 2, 1934 Hitler Becomes Führer

The Aug 2nd, 1969 Zodiac letter was sent on the 35th anniversery (or the day after)of when Hitler Becomes Führer !!!




Here is the original:



So was Zodiac a fan of Hitler and Nazi Germany?

I've often wondered why Zodiac added "no address," but most likely Zodiac realized he had misspelled address as "adress" and then squeezed in the extra d.

i also think that is the most likely explanation.as an interesting side point, i wonder if this tends to suggest the zodiac's misspellings weren't intentional.

Ya' know, some are super-mechanically inclined, but can't spell for squat.

If you're one of those people who think that Zodiac wrote his letters in a contrived style to disguise his own handwriting, I can state for a fact that writing at high speed in a disguised handwriting style will leave you very prone to making inadvertent spelling errors.

Would you write faster if trying to disguise? I would have thought slower and more deliberate.

I think I'd avoid going slow, so as not to make the 'contrived-ness' seem obvious. Quite a few of Zodiac's letters look like they were written at normal speed, at the very least...

I imagine the perfect block-style letters were written very slowly as to not have his typical handwriting style show through.I know a few people who when they write fast, spelling errors abound! But when they stop and think about it, they spell correctly.Maybe Zodiac was a horrible speller. That could affect being spotted by handwriting experts as well. So, spell words like "kid/cid" incorrectly and everyone will think it is on purpose.
