I think if he hadn't been meticulous we would have seen a lot of those prints matching up with each other, and we would have seen many more prints on the envelopes and letters.True Doug.But how do we deduce Z was "meticulous" in not leaving prints on letters before, when we don't know the source of the lifts LE has?
As Bernie mentioned above, a whole slew of prints were recovered from the letters. One set, in particular, was apparently important enough to be singled out by name in the FBI files more than once - I can list all those that I know of if you guys so wish. I've had the opportunity to look at where they were situated on the missives, and from the looks of things - believe it or not - Zodiac appears to have left them when he was folding the documents to put in the envelopes.It also strikes me that I don't recall any other prints being picked off of other letters- that concerns me as to the authenticity of this letter (despite the fact that I've said previously that I believe it's from Z).If Z was that meticulous as to not leave palm prints on other well-established Zodiac letters, then why would he on this one?
