The diagram on the right is simply arrived at by representing each symbol in the 'My Name is...cipher' with the alphabet, so effectively, the A and M line up in the first and last column.
A 14th column has been created, derived from the second column, after all, the Zodiac did state 'My name is....
The resulting figures are numerically the difference between the letters in each column, the circled 8 is taken as the letter
This has been brought forward from the previous post
The Halloween Card mailed on October 27th 1970 was interesting, as the Zodiac chose a card which had the lines ' I feel it in my bones, You ache to know my name, And so I'll clue you in '. Inside he added 8 eyes to the tree trunk, then the word 4- TEEN, followed by another 4 eyes. If indeed these were eyes, was he pointing us in a certain direction.
The ' My name is...cipher had 13 symbols, the Halloween Card had 13 eyes and both threatened to reveal his name, but this time he highlights the number 14 twice. Could this is a clue or key he was giving us to unlock the 13 symbol cipher. After all the card does not indicate 14 victims and the Halloween Card, like the 13 symbol cipher taunts us with his name and both cards have similarities in this respect, but both apparently failed to deliver anything of real value, possibly.
This is the thinking behind the addition of a fourteenth symbol on the examples below, to complete the word name on the April 20th 1970 cipher, and once done so, an extremely symmetric code of numbers are revealed.
Both the extreme six numbers either side of the cipher read 0, 3, 1, 1, 0, 3, with the middle four numbers of 5, 1, 5, 1, mirroring each other also.
The upper right diagram shows distinct numerical symmetry, we also have the figures 1031, in the green rectangle, the date of Halloween, positioned under MY NAME, although this is more than likely coincidence.
The emphasis of this card was 13 eyes and the number 14.
The 13th and 14th letters in the above diagrams are M and E, spelling ME.
Around the hole in the tree trunk he writes ' Peek a boo you are doomed ', with distinctly larger letters forming the ME part of doomed. With BOO on the main part and also next to the ME on the trunk.
The Zodiac killer added 8 eyes to the trunk and the 8th letter of the derived cipher above is M.
The Zodiac killer added 4-TEEN on the main body of the card, and on the front of the card and the 14th letter in the derived cipher above is E.
The Zodiac killer added 4 eyes to the main body of the card and the 4th letter of the derived cipher is the Zodiac symbol.
We now have ' I feel it in my bones, You ache to know my name, And so I'll clue you in '. Me, Zodiac.
After the 408 cipher, the Zodiac almost immediately mailed a letter to the San Francisco Examiner, dated August 4th 1969, in which he stated, ' By the way, are the police having a good time with the code? If not, tell them to cheer up; when they do crack it, they will have me '
Was the Zodiac poking fun at the authorities and law enforcement, because, indeed the Zodiac was telling the truth, the police did literally, have me. This is contained in deciphered text of the 408 cipher, as shown in the image on the right. The ME element was also part of yet another layer of undeciperable text within the original code, comprising of 18 letters. An area that has always posed more questions than answers.
