The Case Breakers have been given a specific High Sierra location to dig up several guns allegedly connected to the Zodiac Killer — a California psychopath who is suspected of shooting, stabbing or choking to death as many as 10 victims between 1962-70.
Remaining a mystery for decades, the volunteer investigators now believe Gary Francis Poste (35-year-old photo) has been unmasked as the perpetrator — through a combination of evidence involving shell cartridges, photos, fingerprints, cryptic writings and DNA harvested from his old clothing and a blood relative. The 40-member task force also claims to have identified more former crime scenes with the Zodiac’s MO and signature, on a trail stretching from San Diego to Lake Tahoe.
An Outlaw-Turned-Whistleblower initially tipped these astonishing developments to the team, which is led by former FBI Special Agents and U.S. Marshals. Sources verified this turncoat had escaped from Poste’s criminal “posse,” which roamed the mountains for decades. Now in his 50s, the whistleblower is both ashamed and angry: “He groomed me into a killing machine.”
Subsequent collaborative eyewitnesses, court affidavits, Poste’s mountain-trip videos, recorded police interrogations, 50 private letters, and a secret escape map are among the evidence uncovered by the sleuths. The former feds call this new documentation “irrefutable.”
Meanwhile, at least one alleged Zodiac fatality is still unaccounted for: Nurse Donna Lass. A local journalist who spent years deciphering these Zodiac coded messages and algorithms believes he now knows where her remains are. A geophysicist with Ground Penetration Radar has been approached.
With the goal of bringing all these families closure, the team, in its 12th year, plans to excavate.
