He signed his letters with his symbol, which was a circle with a plus sign over it. Although several suspects have been identified, the cases involving the zodiac killer have never been solved. The Zodiac killer claims to have murdered more than 37 victims, but only seven have been identified two of who survived the attacks. Five murders have been directly linked to the zodiac killer. The first murder involved a 17-year-old male and his 16-year-old girlfriend who were shot dead near their car at a secluded location on Lake Herman port.
In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, San Francisco and parts of the Bay Area faced one of the most mass unknown murders that is still unsolved until this day. The murder, who exemplified himself as the “Zodiac,” kept in contact with the police and area newspapers using notes, confirming that he has murdered yet another citizen. Although the police were never able to identify the zodiac, they were able to gather information about him through letters he was sending to the police and newspapers. The zodiac killed up to about 40 people, but the police is estimating about 50, therefore the amount of killings still remains unknown. The zodiac was very creative at his killings, so everytime the police thought they had gained knowledge on his strategies, Zodiac would change his ways and leave the police speechless.
Now what Tybalt is telling us is that Romeo has killed before but has only been sentenced to be a villain and not to death. So not only has he killed before he has bribed the judge of his real sentence. From the scenes, we don't see he would probably be off upping his kills per day always getting away with it. This is why I believe that Romeo and Juliet is not in fact a love story at all. Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer.
The first person she killed was a man named Richard Mallory; he was found in a junkyard with five more men’s bodies (College). Aileen Wuornos was found out and convicted with the death sentence; even if her sanity was questioned she was executed by lethal injection in 2002. On the psychological side of the scale, both Nature and Nurture are present in this case. Aileen had a very bad upbringing being abused, and abandoned which in tow would seem as if the nurture of her past drove her over the edge to commit those murders, but on the biological side of things her dad had some sort of problems as well, her father being a child molester that it could be argued that he gave her traits of being a molester, through heredity. This being said, in this case both nature and nurture had some play in part to why Aileen Wuornos became a serial
The reason my husband asked me about it was, years later after I had begun to date and finally married, I saw a news story about two robbers arrested not far from where we live. The report mentioned it was two men, dressed in black, who had robbed a home and tried to kill one of the owners. The reporter said the third man, who had worn a skull mask over his face, had never been caught. I had started panicking at this, and eventually told my husband all about what had happened. He knew my brother had died, and that it had been during an attempted robbery, but not much else.
Which they thought they were not ever going to be caught for the murder. Dick believed it was for his “scams” he was doing on people in Nevada. Once they are in custody the officers start to question them about the night of the murder and the two “friends” turn on each other. Dick and Perry were both executed in 1965. “At the time not a soul was sleeping Holcomb heard them- four shotgun blasts that, all told, ended six human lives” (Capote 5).
This shows that Banquo could not be an apparation of any sort since no one but Macbeth saw him. The audience is supposed to accept Banquo's ghost as a fantasy representing Macbeth's guilty conscience. This is proven by the fact that no one but Macbeth even saw the ghost. Macbeth is the only one, besides the murderers, who even knew of Banquo's murder. Macbeth is guilty about killing his friend Banquo and is therefore losing his mind by seeing visions of his ghost when it is really not there at all.

¨She came up with circumstantial links from her father to a string of unsolved murders across the United States, from the family home in Massachusetts to California¨ (Katz 191).

Imagine just at the age of 18 you are convicted for a murder you never committed and were locked away for the rest of your life.

One reason why I think Adnan is Innocent is how bad the evidence is.When Mr. S first found Haes body there were a bunch of evidence, but the items that stuck out to me were the empty bottles and the rope, but the bottles and rope were never tested so we didn 't know if Adnan was drinking that night or if the real killer used the rope (Koenig, “Leaking Park”). Another part of evidence that never made sense was the phone booth at best buy (Koenig,”To be suspected”). This phone was used to call Jay to pick Adnan up right before they buried Hae 's body, but a number of people said and the blueprints showed that there wasn 't even a phone booth there so he couldn 't of made the call.

His initial intention was not to harm anyone and simply ask the insurance executives not to use his private bathroom (McBride 14).
