During the late 1960s and 1970s in California (Zodiac Killer Biography, biography.com), there was a serial killer named the Zodiac Killer. The Zodiac crimes usually happened in areas that were either private or closed so that nobody would see him kill the people for example in a parking lot of the Blue Rock Springs and Lake Herman Road (which were both in Vallejo). The Zodiac is responsible for 5 deaths (Zodiac Killer Biography, biography.com). Usually after the crimes, the Zodiac would send letters to the newspapers and tells them to print the cipher.

First, Arthur Leigh Allen. Arthur is the most man tied to the Zodiac suspect. They did not charge him because there was not enough evidence. Also, the movie “Zodiac” is about the Zodiac killer.

Arthur Leigh Allen was arrested because he was the #1 suspect of the Zodiac and many people thought that it was him, but then he was released without any charge. In my opinion, I think that neither of the suspects were the Zodiac Killer. I think that the Zodiac Killer planned all his crimes and murders very carefully, step-by-step so that he would not get caught. Even though he sent many letters to news media, he might have let someone else work for him which sent all his letters or licked his stamps, etc. After all of this research, I am really curious and I really want to know who the Zodiac Killer is and how he got
