On March 2nd 1981, a business reply envelope postmarked Cleveland, OH, was mailed with the message "Please stop forced bussing or I will kill 3 more black boys in Atlanta in March". It is believed that the author was also responsible for the letter mailed six days later.
The Zodiac Killer, or somebody claiming to be the Zodiac Killer, would mail a communication on March 8th 1981 to the television station WXIA-TV "11 Alive" at 1611 West Peachtree Street, 30308, insinuating it was he that was killing all these "little people". The author stated:
Hello its me. Haven't you people figured out who is killing these little people yet. I'll give you a hint, I used to be in San Francisco. I used to stalk women, but I like to kill children now. At all my victims bodies I have left certain clues, but I guess it's too much for you Rebels to handle. So I guess I'll have to tell you. I'll (to) kill children because they are so easy to "pick off: Buy the way, if you still have letters from the other murders, I am not writing in the same hand writing.
On March 18th 1981, a letter addressed to the "Editor of the Washington Post" was received (but postmarked February 17th from Prince George's County, Maryland), claiming to have information on the Atlanta killings, and requested that the editor place an advertisement in the newspaper stating "Daniel Please Call Home", after which, the writer would initiate further contact with the editor of the Washington Post. Three communications in close succession that may be from the same author, or quite possibly the Zodiac Killer. The message "Daniel Please Call Home" appears to be an appeal for a male to make contact. If the named person in the communication is a missing person, then the request is either an innocent appeal, or a sinister taunting. If the author claimed to have information on the Atlanta killings, yet didn't initiate later contact with the editor of the Washington Post, one could assume malintent.
Bearing in mind the suspicious phone calls regarding Darron Glass and the headline in the newspaper of "Child may have tried to call home", it puts a new light on the trinity of potential Zodiac communications above - particularly the last one. The March 18th 1981 letter to the "Editor of the Washington Post" requested an advertisement be placed in the newspaper, stating "Daniel Please Call Home". Because the author of this letter mentioned the Atlanta killings, it is my contention the message should have read "Darron Please Call Home".
If the person who contacted the Washington Post by letter was just a helpful citizen, did he accidentally get the name incorrect, using "Daniel" instead of "Darron". Or was this person responsible for the other two letters on March 2nd and March 8th, thereby giving a sinister and mischievous element to the March 18th 1981 appeal.
When we consider that the author of the March 18th 1981 letter claimed he had information pertinent to the Atlanta murders, and place this alongside Darron Glass, the missing boy from Atlanta, it isn't too difficult to reach the conclusion of a message that should have read "Darron Please Call Home". When you add in the newspaper headline on the right and the sinister phone calls, then a whole new line of investigation opens up in the case of the missing Darron Glass.
