You are right you can’t see hair color in the composites, but if you “read the police reports” and read what Bryan Hartnell told Bill White, it will describe his hair as brown and that Zodiac wore glasses under sun glasses . Mike M. saw his hair and said it was brown and curly, he didn’t remember seeing glasses, but then he didn’t get a good look at the face. SFPD said his hair was reddish brown but was in a crew cut, not curly.( The reddish brown hair could have been the lighting )that suspect wore glasses.Metalface Mark wrote:You cant see colour in the composites that were posted though - so the only thing he could do that makes him look like the composite I guess is wear glasses or change the length off his hair.sandy betts wrote:
I don't think glasses would be his disguise, because he had them on with clip on glasses over them at Lake Berryessa . So I think we can be pretty sure Zodiac had to wear glasses.
If anything, he changed his hair from curly brown hair to a reddish light brown crew cut. And he lost a heck of a lot of weight in only two weeks!
Obviously though, we know he wasnt always the most trustworthy of people
Is there a very good reason the SFPD isn't bothering to check the DNA of Van Best's son against the Zodiac's DNA? Also, I haven't been on the boards in a very long time -- is the best sample of the Zodiac's DNA on the envelopes that he licked and sent into the Chronicle? So if there is a good sample of the Zodiac's DNA...why don't they just exhume Van Best's body from his grave in Mexico City and test the DNA on him? Why bother testing Gary Stewart's DNA, although it being a half match to the Zodiac's (a "haplo" match) would certainly raise a LOT of questions? On the other hand, maybe the SFPD already have their reasons to believe that Stewart's theory is a dead end, which would make requesting a body be exhumed in another country and then testing the DNA an expensive proposition that may lead nowhere...?BugsMoran wrote:
However, Gary Stewart leads the reader to believe that the police never checked his DNA with the Zodiac in order to protect the reputation of his biological mother's
