I was looking at the Harden Key and thought, maybe the Zodiac used a sentence to make this key.
He uses 5 symbols for an A, 1 for a B, 1 for a C, 2 for a D, 7 for an E……..
so you’ll get this :   aaaaabcddeeeeeeeffghhiiiiiklllmnnnnooooprrrssssstttttuvwxy

When you fill this in in an Anagram Generator > http://www.futureboy.us/lookup/nph-anagram.pl

and assume that he wants to announce his next victim

You can make something like this :

Next victim is Hartnell. With a gun. End of Sept. Lake Berryessa SF. Adiooo

or

The next victim is a girl on Sat. End of Sept. Half in Lake Berryessa wood. - U


Maybe someone can find another sentence.


The next step is to find this sentence in the Z408 code without using an anagram generator, to confirm he really used a sentence to make the key.

Have you ever used anagram solver on the letters from each of the 17 columns in the 408?

Column 13 caught my eye starting psfd

Also, any ideas on tying the # 33245 to the 408?
I have a couple-
3 sections, 3 newspapers, 8 lines per section-3+3+2,  24 lines, 17 characters across 3+3+2+4+5
