The Zodiac Killer hastily exited the left rear door, possibly injuring himself in the process (Donald Fouke described a man later spotted on Jackson Street as having a shuffling lope, like a semi-limp) and entered the front driver side door and in doing so deposited either normal or blooded fingerprints on the panel between the doors. Then bracing himself on the front driver side compartment area, stepped over the lifeless body of Paul Stine to gain some limited control over the runaway vehicle. He now had to support Paul Stine's body in an upright position, pressing it against the driver side door with his left side, so as to access the taxicab pedals with his left foot and coast the taxicab away from the Washington and Maple Street intersection to the corner of Washington and Cherry, where it was found positioned in the above photograph.
The time period between the two intersections allows for the blood pattern to form on the shirt, something that is simply not feasible if Paul Stine had been killed at Washington and Cherry and had slumped over immediately. More importantly no shots were ever attested to by the three teenagers across the street and the blooded prints on the external driver side door should simply not have been there if the order of events had unfolded as we were lead to believe.
