fair enough, but then wouldn't Gaik or any other Z suspect have had to have the same scratches on their face (body)?

If Gaik committed the Riverside murder he would have had to fly back to NY with scratches and (apparently) no one reported that he had any markings on him.

Has anyone attempted to obtain the LIbrary records from the Presidio Branch Library? I'm just curious if Ross Sullivan ever ventured to the Presidio neighborhood and either worked at the library or frequented it?

Where is the connection to the Vallejo area crime scenes?  Zodiac didn't just stumble upon those crime scenes; those were secluded areas known only to locals, or someone who became familiar w/ that area through work, an acquaintance, etc.

I was under the impression Riverside cleared their original POI through some sort of physical evidence (i.e., hair, blood).  Watching this series it gives the impression Riverside PD hasn't given up on their original POI.  Or, have developed a brand NEW POI.  Furthermore, have somehow made the determination it can have absolutely no connection to Zodiac despite the letters, desk, MO, etc.  Disappointing, I've never fully understood this.

Agree fully on the Zodiac knowing these places very well. To me, Sullivan and Gaikowski are the best suspects of a bad bunch.

I think it's highly likely the Zodiac is a name no one has heard of.

If it can be proven that Sullivan was involved in Cheri Jo Bates murder (either the murder itself or simply the letters), then Sullivan could very well be Zodiac. A DNA match from Cheri's pants would be great...I am not expecting much from this show though.

On the show RS PD won't give up their name to this day. 

RS is dead right?  So assuming it was him, would they have heart burn releasing a name if the person was deceased?  My gut tells me their POI is still around

This would be a good spot to add his handwriting. Any takers?

Here's a new one I've spotted. Supposedly it's from Ross' senior yearbook:

This was actually from someone named Ed Knox's yearbook. The question is is he still alive so that we can ask him questions about Ross. 

Questions like if he was into comic books and detective stories, etc? How did he dress?
