The second will be described here.
On June 26th 1970 the Zodiac Killer mailed the Button Letter to the San Francisco Chronicle, upset that the citizens of San Francisco had not complied with his wishes to wear his Zodiac buttons, claiming he had killed a man in a parked car with a .38. He also attached a 32 symbol code, the fourth in a series of cryptic messages, of which only the first, the 408 Cipher was ever solved. Also accompanying the letter was a Phillips 66 Road Map of San Francisco and its neighboring areas.
On this map the Zodiac Killer had emblazoned his crosshair symbol, centered over the peak of Mt Diablo, along with a brief segment of writing, stating it was to be set to Magnetic North.
The Zodiac Killer appeared a master of misdirection and false promises, placing the Bay area into panic by proclaiming he would take on a school bus and 'pick off the kiddies as they came bouncing out', a threat that never materialized. His threat to use a bomb in several letters, including this Button Letter also appeared to carry little weight, other than to continue his campaign of terror using a pen as opposed to a bullet.
Kevin Robert Brooks and his team of investigators believe they have found the real reason behind the Button Letter and Phillips 66 Petroleum Map of June 26th 1970 and it is another classic case of Zodiac misdirection.
Donald Lee Bujok was born on July 6th 1936 in Roundup, Musselshell County, Montana and indeed what the author of the Button Letter and Phillips 66 Petroleum Map is actually revealing to us, is his location.
Many serial killers collect trophies from their victims, often harboring them for many years. Items were taken following the murder of Paul Stine in Presidio Heights on October 11th 1969 and apart from small sections of Paul Stine's shirt mailed back to the San Francisco Chronicle and Melvin Belli's residence, the rest is unaccounted for. The innate desire to reveal ones identity and take credit for the crimes, is often counterbalanced with an equal desire to remain at liberty and continue ones compunction to murder, this is the fine line some serial killers appear to tread and undoubtedly the Zodiac Killer was no different.
The key to this mystery lies hidden in plain sight, all we have to do is recognize the key. In this instance, it is the map itself, a 1969 version of the Phillips 66 Road Map. The Phillips Petroleum Company (1917) was founded in Bartlesville, Oklahoma by brothers Frank and Lee Eldas Phillips, becoming an iconic brand, the name, in part, derived from testing undertaken on US Highway 66 in Oklahoma.
Kevin Robert Brooks takes us to the county seat of Roundup, Montana where Donald Lee Bujok was born and in particular Musselshell County. This is the area that the Zodiac Killer wanted us to see all along, an area of personal significance. All we have to do now is place the center of the Zodiac crosshair over the area of Roundup, Musselshell County and follow the arrow placed at the top of the Zodiac crosshair, set to Mag N, and see where it takes us.
The two immediate counties above Musselshell County, are Petroleum County, established in 1925 and Phillips County, established in 1915.
The key was indeed so large, it almost went unnoticed:- Phillips Petroleum, pointing to the birth place and home of America's most notorious and elusive murderer. The crosshair buttons the Zodiac urged his followers to wear, would probably have mirrored his own, worn too close to the heart of a killer for comfort, and we know where home is.
