Hey Tom.  Could you give more details about this statement you made a while back?

"Additionally, VPD seized items from Allen's home in 1991 and 1992 that were exactly what they were looking for to prove him to be Zodiac, yet to this day haven't attempted to test them."

A knife was found similar to what was used at Lake Berryessa. Plus a typewriter that could have been used for the Riverside confessions.

That would be amazing if the murderer still kept the knife instead of tossing it.  If LE still has that knife, they could definitely test it for blood.  If they found any gloves in ALA's house, they should definitely test all of them for blood. 

In regards to the Riverside letters, I think the key will be the DNA on the back of the stamps and the envelope flaps.  So I really hope the Riverside PD does some new DNA testing on everything.  The stamps, the envelope flaps, and the hair that Cheri Jo Bates pulled out from her attacker.
