The Zodiac killer is one of the most infamous killers in American history. He murdered at least five people between the 1960s and 1970’s. His victims were often couples who were in secluded places around San Francisco. He received widespread media attention due to his habits of taunting the police and newspapers with coded messages. 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.
It had been a very exciting day. Thousands of cheerful people lined the streets waiting for a glimpse as the much beloved president, John F. Kennedy. The crowd roared in excitement as the motorcade passed by. JFK, the Governor of Texas and Mrs. Kennedy all rode in the motorcade, waving to the enormous crowds. At 12:30, there was a loud bang, preceded by another. First the governor was shot, and then the president. At that moment, Mrs. Kennedy was filled with unbearable pain, which was shared by the whole entire nation. The governor made it out alive, but at 1:00 pm on November 22, 1963, at the Dallas Parkland Hospital, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was pronounced dead.(History.com) JFK’s assassination was extremely unjust due to his great contributions to the ending of segregational laws and other problems this country faced at that period in history. The fact that this man had the audacity to eliminate such a key figure in American politics is shocking.
