People believed Ross Sulivan was the Zodiac due to his suspicious behavior and dress attire, also where he lived. Other people believe Earl Best was the true Zodiac because of his child’s book and his scar that is just too much like the Zodiac’s for it to be a mere coincidence. People have been studying the Zodiac for years trying to figure out who he really was but alas, no one has ever truly been proven guilty. Even though the Zodiac killer has never been caught for his 5 murders, in the grand scheme of things this is a miniscule amount, for according to pewresearch.org 62% of homicides and murders go
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.
These two men, Perry Smith and Dick Hickock, showed this family no remorse whatsoever that resulted in killings of Herbert, Bonnie, Nancy, and Kenyon Clutter. They had it all planned out I'm sure... go in, tie them up, find the money, and then take off. Flee the city or hell even the state. The killers were under the impression that there was a safe in the house and when they realized that it was not, they could have left. Nobody had to die that day, especially in a brutal way like
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). I now know that the other two lives that ended the night of the Clutter murder was Dick and

Two of names he said he didn’t know, but the third man was George Clark. The police couldn’t find a man by the name of George Clark but used descriptions given by Joe that leads to the arrest of Derek Tice. Derek Tice both dazed and confused was taken to the integration room to meet no other than Robert Ford. Similar to the other three men after eleven hours of threats, yelling, intimidation, and being told he’s not telling the truth Derek surrendered and signed validating his confession. All four men share the same following theme from Ford: If you tell the truth you die, but if you lie you will live.

Paul Haven was the author of the story above and it never provides any actaul words saying that Skidmore did the crime of murdering his brother by poisoning the pretzel he ate, but it does provide many facts of how it most likely was him and that is what made me think it was Skidmore. I will explain what in the story of "The Curse of The Poisoned Pretzel," made me believe that SKimore killed Macnchester to get the money. A case of a man murdered by his brother was never brought to justice, it was said to have ended by a simple choking hazard when really it was an inncident of an insane twisted family member. In the excerpt from the story, "The Curse of the Poisoned Pretzel," the author Paul Haven indirectly expresses his thoughts about the killing of the character named Manchester. Support 1:
Smith claims to have watched a man named Al Morrison kill Beth,and deeply described the murder. After the LAPD found no trace of Al Morrison they quickly figured it was Smith that commited the crime (Fuller 9). A month before Arnold came to the police station, the Los Angeles medical examiner office received a call of someone claiming to be the killer and that they had proof. Anxiously waiting officers received a package days later with some of Shorts stuff, from social security cards to an address book, but one page had been ripped out ("Criminal Investigators") The killer agreed to turn himself in but when officer went to the meeting spot he/she never showed. A couple weeks later is when Arnold Smith made an appearance.
According to the Daily Chronicle, a newspaper which covers this story, claims, “Klosowski deliberately told her that he had meant to cut her head off” (“George Chapman”). His location gave him an easy way to commit murders and go unseen. One of the victims was murdered a few feet from Klosowski’s job (“George Chapman”). Also, there was a similar murder as done by Jack the Ripper in London. But, when Klosowski moved away, they suddenly stopped.
Jay had several inconsistencies, some are major, and some, perhaps minor. The ones that stands out the most are appalling, such as the fact that he openingly stated to police and jury that he will lie avoiding criminal punishment. In one occasion with the police, he said Adnan “knows I sold drugs… he could get me locked up for that.” In further interviews, there are times when he would say Adnan asked him one day ago, same day, and even four to five days ago to help assist him in such murder. When asked where Adnan killed Hae, there were several different responses, including Best Buy, Woodlawn Public Library, and Patapsco State Park, which haven’t been brought up since.
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. That 's what happened to Adnan Syed, I believe that Adnan was unjustly convicted of the murder of his ex-girlfriend in 1999 because of bad evidence, Jay 's story was mostly a lie, and that he had a bad lawyer. One reason why I think Adnan is Innocent is how bad the evidence is.
I have found no information about his father, but his mother Janice Blair only finished 9th grade and is believed to suffer from a psychological disorder. My sources don’t state a specific disorder. Crime and poverty is the only thing Terry and his family knew. At age 17, Terry’s mother shot and killed her drug-dealing boyfriend, but she was only sentenced to five years’ probation and psychiatric care. His half brother, Walter Blair, was paid $6,000 to a rape victim so she couldn’t
They tested DNA samples, examined cell phone records and used a sketch that was drawn by a neighbor in order to find the killer. Miami-Dade prosecutors have not released anymore details about the case. Juan Perez is the director of the Miami-Dade Police Department.

In the wake of listening to it, they flipped the tape over and found a recorded discussion in which Myers griped intensely that he was being compelled to frame McMillian, whom he didn 't have the faintest idea, for a crime neither of them had any part in. Further examination uncovered that McMillian 's had just been changed over to a "Low-rider" six months after the crime occurred, and that prosecutors had disguised data around a witness who had seen the casualty alive after the time the prosecutors asserted that McMillian had killed her. The two witnesses who had affirmed that they had seen McMillian 's truck withdrawn their affirmation, and conceded that they lied at trial. On February 23, 1993, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals turned around McMillian 's conviction and requested another trial. On March 2, 1993, prosecutors rejected charges against McMillian and he was discharged.
