Throughout 2021 and 2022, somebody claiming to be the "Chinese Zodiac Killer" mailed several terroristic threats to media outlets, and was eventually identified and sentenced to jail time in 2023. This story featured heavily in the newspapers. On April 24th 1978, somebody claiming to be the Zodiac Killer mailed a rather benign letter claiming "I am back with you" and "I am waiting for a good movie about me, who will play me". Tales of the City author, Armistead Maupin, would ultimately come forward and suggest that Inspector David Toschi may have been the author of the 1978 letter, based on little more than a perceived correlation of handwriting between the 1978 letter and fan letters David Toschi wrote for the Tales of the City series. Off the back of this, a well respected homicide investigator was questioned by his superiors, demoted and had his name splashed in many newspapers, before being cleared of any wrongdoing.
The Zodiac Killer murdered five innocent people, with friends and relatives of the victims desperate for some kind of resolution to this case. This woman, claimed by Tom Voigt to be known to him and the police, mailed terroristic threats on May 6th 1986 owning up to the murder of Koy Ien Saechao (48) and Choy Fow Saelee (40) in Sacramento on April 22nd 1986, and mailed threats to kill children on October 28th 1987. Yet, despite the fact that the "Chinese Zodiac Killer" was plastered all over the media and jailed for his crimes, and Inspector David Toschi was defamed in the newspapers for several months and demoted, this woman has seemingly avoided any newspaper coverage of her serious crimes and avoided any legal ramifications for her terroristic threats of murder and mayhem.
If you believe what you read on the Tapatalk forum, this woman's identity is being withheld by Tom Voigt and the police in an apparent lack of transparency, despite this woman being a malicious criminal. I wonder what Inspector David Toschi (if still alive) and the families of the five victims would make of this? A woman, who has claimed and threatened murder, and attempted to derail and divert the Zodiac Killer case on at least two occasions, who is facing no consequences for her actions. There is, however, one good reason why this woman was never named in the newspapers and held accountable for her criminal deeds - she didn't exist. This fictitious woman was created in the mind of an individual who cannot refute the arguments put forward for the 1986 and 1987 letters being genuine. It's much easier to shut down the debate on these two letters by introducing fiction to his followers, who he knows will never question his perceived authority.
