In the immediate aftermath of Paul Stine's execution style murder, the San Francisco Police Dpt. report on the Homicide couldn't even muster a full two page incident report which, if you compare this Final Scene of Zodiac's stage production against the police reports of His opening scene and arrival at LHR, well the difference is unmissable.
The SFPD seemed to have decided that the best way to avoid the potential for failure, is by simply not trying to being with. I mean why is it that the Dpt literally seem to respond by not responding? I mean surely the minute you know Cab picks up suspect a Point A, travels some distance with Him on board to point B along a the public street roads surely the first thing you have to do is appeal for witnesses to come forward who may have seen the cab en-route. The same is surely applicable to the Zodiac exiting the cab and walking under streetlights down Cherry, turn right, then along Jackson to Maple, surely to God the first thing you do the very next day is a door to door Enq. starting at The scene itself and following the known route down Maple & Jackson.
We see no official reports this was done, and when we do see evidence of some form of witness and one that could blow the case open in the statement made being this witness 'FOR INFO IDENT. DVSN: Witness in murder of cab driver Identified *NAMED INDIVIDUAL* as possible subject in the matter' as a footnote. The ID and witness thereof both having fell below media radar at the time this ID took place.
Are Martin Lee's Men in SFPD Homicide Division too busy conducting a thorough and extensive investigation into which Donut Retail Outlet is to be assigned the top spot?
Where is the full and written statements of the on scene witnesses? Where is Donald Foukes Crime report? Why does Frank Peda arrive with Armond before Armond suggest He immediately vanishes into thin air and is not mentioned by Armond as doing anything at all or even being present?
There are events and facts we have only learned in more recent years such as Don's "Putting His head down & turned into the entrance way of a house...." reveal and had Z Himself not aired their dirty laundry all over the San Fran's Chronicle demanding *must print in paper* the part about being stopped and let on my way....Had Z never thrown this KO punch at Chief Lee as they went about verbally trading insults, we'd likely never have known that Fouke saw that WMA AKA Z.
Armond is non-specific about going this way, seeing some person who's name He either doesn't know or chooses not to repeat, seems to imply Peda never exits the patrol car to do anything on scene, but as frustrating as Generalizations are, they are better than contradictions. Fouke has no idea and is turning south onto Cherry while arriving at Arguello after seeing A White Male turn down Maple toward the Presidio who simultaneously is climbing steps, traversing a driveway and heading for a residence.
I wont have it that it's all a innocent misunderstanding and explanations can be expected in all innocence. This is deliberate concealment and outright lying as to the actual true facts of what happened that night and asd the legal maxim reminds:
'What is inconvenient or contrary to reason, is to be ignored as falsehood,'
