The father/son, kid not living up to Dad's expectations or achievements is particularly heady stuff with Sam, I mean, hey Mr. smart detective, who kept them guessing forever? Wonder if Sam was around his old man to whisper in his ear at the end? MB

Heh. That's heady stuff in any household. I had the advantage of having been adopted by a wifebeating sack of shit, which (I guess) is part of why I didn't become some kind of violent freak.I'd still love to push him down a flight of stairs, though.

Then the owner of a theater in S.F. offered 00,000 for Z's capture, (I think that was in the late 70's).
Wasn't that supposed to be from the money the 1971 The Zodiac Killer made?According to "Yellow Cab Sets Reward For Zodiac," by Paul Avery (SF Chronicle, 1-28-1970, p. 4), a ,000 reward was
offered for "information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible" for the deaths of Yellow Cab drivers Charles Jarman and Paul Stine.
In "4 Cops Give Their Reward To Widow" (SF Chronicle, 7-7-1970, p. 2), we are told that
Four policemen collected a 000 reward yesterday for the capture of the killer of a Yellow Cab driver, and promptly gave the check to to the driver's widow.
Isabel Jarman collected the reward money from Jack Wright, James Kirkendall, David Toschi and William Armstrong, apparently the only reward money ever offered in the Z case.

Why did they receive reward money with no capture? Sorry if something went over my head here...

..."the only reward money ever offered in the Z case." Why did she get money if it pertained to the Zodiac case that wasnt' solved?

It was for Stine and Jarman. Jarman's case was solved, so Yellow Cab awarded it to the inspectors on both cases... you'll have to ask them why.

That sounds more like a collection to help out than a reward.

To me, it's fairly clear that the last two words before the last period in the wanted poster cipher are "Donna Lass". The rest I bog down on but somewhat see "We have (??) walk in soon....Donna Lass.
Here's a possiblity:W = Abackward E = Bhalf-filled square = DP = Ebackward F = GN = IS = Kbackward K = LA = MZ = Nopen triangle = O or YY = Ropen square = Sfilled in triangle = TQ = UT = WUsing the above translation, the code reads:BEWARE I AM STALKING YOU . . . . DONNA LASS

Excellent, Jeff. Apparently, whoever set up the code made a mistake with one of the open triangles. But that has to be the solution. I considered "stalking" but was thrown off by trying to begin the thing with "I am or You are, etc." "Beware" is perfect!
