Brief notes :
1] Since Scorpion refers to ''pictures'' in both cipher solutions,then one assumes that he sent pictures/photographs with the ciphers.
2] Note the misspelling of Coffee [Cofee] and Latte [Late].
3] Since Scorpion claims to have resided in New Jersey,and possibly untrue,then there is a likelihood that he was a regular user of Newark Airport and visitor to New York City,instead.''Bagel Bob's'' is a traditional eatery,found in Greenwich Village,and mostly frequented by students.
If it is the case that,the Cryptanalysis Unit continue to struggle to solve ''S2'',''S3'' and ''S4'' ciphers,then please feel free to pass them on to me,and I will solve them,for the team.
I believe that it really looks likely that Scorpion was actually,The Zodiac Killer.And,the two Scorpion ciphers solved,now,add credence to the theory that The Zodiac Killer continued to perpetrate extortion,by inference,through correspondences,after 1990.

Although a ''person'' referring to himself as ''Scorpion'',and a serial killer having moved to New Jersey,in the early 1990's,the authorities have been unable to identify him,let alone establish that he actually killed anyone.
The implication may be,therefore,that ''Scorpion'' was a new moniker,chosen by The Zodiac Killer,who might have moved from the Bay Area of the San Francisco vicinity,or indeed,might have been someone constantly on the move.
The two ciphers ''S 1'' and ''S 5'' :
''S 1'' :
A PICTURE IN COLLECTION OF PEOPLE BAGEL BOBS OLD DAIRY FROTHY LATE COFEE POUR ACTION
''S 5'' :
I AM SENDING OTHER PICTURE OF PEOPLE FOR THE COLLECTION OF RECENT HYBRID GENDERS WITH EDGE KEPT FROM ARTISTIC FEE IF PERSON OF AGE HAS TO PURCHASE UNIVERSITY UGLIES
ESPRESSO NYP COFEE FORCES A COLD ENEMA REVIEW
In ''Scorpion'' constructing his ciphers,did he give any inkling that he might be The Zodiac Killer ?
Firstly,it might be a good idea,to look at the solution texts,on a basis of running words,that produced other words,that had no relevance,in the final solutions.
For ''S1'',we see : PLEB,SOLD,AIR,ROT,FEE,ACT.
For ''S5'',we see : GOT,HER,FORT,HE,NO,CENT,THY,BRIDGE,HEDGE,MART,SON,FAG,STOP,CHASE,FUN,SIT,LIES,PRESS,FEE,OLD,MARE,VIEW.
In ''S5'' it is certainly possible that ''Scorpion'' may have been influenced,by The Zodiac's activities and some ''pet'' words of association.
BRIDGE,SON,FAG,STOP,CHASE,FUN,LIES,PRESS,FEE,MARE VIEW....seem to ring bells [?].
In addition ''FEE'' and ''FAG'',sit together on the grid format of the ''S5'' solution.
An immediate possible link to the Zodiac's Halloween Card,where,on the back of the card,in horizontal form,the words ''FAG'' and ''FEE'' emerge.
Was ''Scorpion'',The Zodiac Killer,who once resided in Vallejo,California,with a view of neighbouring ''MARE ISLAND'' ??
''I AM SENDING OTHER PICTURE OF PEOPLE,FOR THE COLLECTION OF RECENT 'HYBRID GENDERS WITH EDGE',KEPT FROM ARTISTIC FEE,IF 'PERSON OF AGE' HAS TO PURCHASE, PICK OF 'UNIVERSITY UGLIES'.
ESPRESSO NYP COFEE FORCES A COLD ENEMA REVIEW.''
As reported,by Sergeant Lynch of The Vallejo Police,a letter was received,on October 7th 1969,just 4 days before the murder of Taxi Driver,Paul Stine.
Sergeant Lynch reported the letter,thus :
10-7-69 Letter received post marked San Francisco Mateo signed ''A good citizen''.The letter states that the writer has a strong feeling of ESP.While having these feelings the writer writes with a pencil.On occasion while thinking of the code letters the pencil wrote ''Go to 56 Beach Street'',I get the name Jerry,perhaps he knows people or his name is XXXXXXX.''.
City Directory lists no Jerry XXXXXXX.Beach Street starts in the 1100 block.Beechwood Street starts in the 700 block.[Lynch,1969] Vallejo Police Department
If we examine Scorpion's ''S5'' cipher solution,there is evidence that Scorpion employed clever running words or phrases,that,in terms of the the actual composition text,were sublimnal.
COLD ENEMA REVIEW....contained ''MARE VIEW''
PERSON OF AGE...contained ''SON O FAG''
SENDING OTHER....contained ''INGOT''
PEOPLE FOR THE...contained ''PEOPLE FORT''
In addition :
HYBRID GENDERS....contained ''BRIDGEND''
HAS TO PURCHASE...contained ''STOP UR CHASE''
UGLIES ESPRESSO....contained ''LIES ESP''
The implication is,based on logic and probability,that in extricating himself,from the execution of a taxi driver,that Zodiac employed a getaway car,and headed for The Golden Gate Bridge.His minimum goal,being to reach the north side of the bridge,which denoted the end of SFPD jurisdiction.
In assessing the reportage of the ''A good citizen'' Letter,by Sergeant Lynch,it does start to look like,an advanced investment,of retrospective diversion.
''56 Beach Street'' exists,in San Francisco,at the east end of the street,and places this address into the ''North Beach'' area,with its traditions of ''Beatnik'',Bohemian,Bookish and Artisan folk.An allusion [...and illusion [?]...] to Zodiac's intentions,to travel,directly East,across the northern headland of San Francisco,following a taxi driver's murder.
In addition,though not wholly accurate,to the letter...there is a ''Beechwood Drive'',in Daly City...which would indicate,according to the ''A good citizen'' Letter,a suggestion that an escape,directly South,from the Stine murder,might be a further option.
The ''Extra Sensory Perception'' reference,whether truth or lies,suggests an escape away from the probable ''Golden Gate Bridge''.
So,referring back to Scorpion's ''S5'' cipher solution,there appears,at least,a possible subliminal reference to,both Zodiac's likely escape,and his telegraphed ''ruse'',following Paul Stine's murder,within Scorpion's cipher solution....about 25 years later.
'' B R I D G E N D ''......and, '' S T O P U R C H A S E ''.....and '' L I E S E S P ''....and '' MARE VIEW ''.

''RATHER'' convincing [?].
In accompanying text,that Scorpion wrote,with his first of 5 ciphers,the following appeared :
'' I strongly advise that you keep this letter and start a RATHER large file,since you will be hearing from me again.I have enclosed a RATHER difficult enclosed message,containing information that will prove RATHER useful to you.''
Scorpion adds :
'' I would much RATHER communicate with you with letters...''
'' This would create a RATHER messy situation....''
One might,perhaps,in examining the letters of the Zodiac,observe the following :
Bus Bomb Letter,November 9th 1969 -----------------------------------
'' I have grown RATHER angry with the police,for telling lies about me.''
THE ZODIAC'S CONFESSION ? ---------------------------------
Among a number of concealed messages within the solution text of Scorpion's S5 Cipher ( Z180 ) is one in particular that may represent the Zodiac's confession, as such :
'' PERSON OF AGE '' - which contains '' SON O' FAG ''.
The Zodiac's admission that he was the son of '' FAG '', and that '' FAG '' was William Joseph Grant. The Zodiac appears to have referenced '' SON '' on a number of occasions, including '' SANS SON '' ( San's son ) in the 1990 Celebrity Cipher solution, and '' BYSON '' ( By son ) in the Benicia High School Note where, he fabricates a scenario of two men in collusion over a bomb. In addition, the '' My name is --- '' cipher appears that the Zodiac is referring to '' Son of the Mighty Caliph '', with cipher solution ALIBABA'S ALIAS. Also, the Dragon Card which depicts two miners, one of whom is riding a dragon with '' Riding the dragon '' meaning '' Son of Satan '' attempting to wrestle control from his father.
And, an acknowledgment to the late Lyndon Lafferty for his library finds which, indicates that the Zodiac was impersonating William Grant as a library user in both Vallejo and Fairfield.
It seems that the Zodiac's raison d'etre was to persecute his father William by a series of means, including impersonating him as a motorist, as well as in person and, carry out law-breaking acts that ultimately included murder. It appears that the Zodiac bore a huge grudge against Fairfield resident Grant, and sought to make his life a living hell.
In Z38, a cipher that appeared in the 1st Fairfield letter ( December 7th 1969 ), we might observe a flavour of the Zodiac's venomous feelings towards Grant, when using the cipher keys from Rubislaw 32's solution to Z340 :
NICE U CEKST S U ASOL AS U ENAKT OO FOETEL TR LIFE - '' Nice, you libidinous sh*t, you as*hole, as you live out double-zero, immature, part-time life.''
By circa 1998 , the Zodiac may have felt that he would take an opportunity to simply leave a telling clue in his Z180 solution :
I am the '' SON O' FAG ''.

Another concealed message in Scorpion's S5 (Z!80) solution ? ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Extract : ''...pick of university uglies...''
Concealed message : ''....pick oF UNIVERSity uglies...''
Revealed : '' FUNI VERS '' = FUNNY VERSE
Funny verse ? As the Zodiac employed, when quoting lyrics from Mikado songs in his confirmed correspondences.
But also recently, with the person taking out a personal ad. in the Seattle Times, March 25th 2021, alluding to ''Zodiac Sister/s''. This personal ad. is believed to be in response to the FBI's December 11th 2020 Tweet, and an FBI ''acknowledgement'' of a Z340 cipher solve by ''private citizens''. The FBI had actually been in on the conception of an apparent solution.
IN ADDITION : -----------------
Two letters sent from Los Angeles, August 1976, for the ultimate attention of Rev Billy Graham, contain similar rhyming verse.
Reference : William (Billy) Graham FBI File 2, pages 1 - 10.

And, yet another concealed message spotted : ''..esPRESSO NY ''pee'' cofee (sic)..'' - reveals ''PRESS ON''.
''PRESS ON'' compliments ''STOP UR CHASE'' nicely, and may have have been inspired by recollections of the Zodiac's extrication from the crime scene of Paul Stine's murder at Presidio Heights, in October 1969.
Rubislaw32: The Zodiac then in his writings, imitating life imitating art imitating life. There seems to have been that surrealistic side to him in evidence - imagining himself as Dan Cooper the skyjacker, a desk top poem, a mural, and even a message in a bottle.
Dec 7, 2022 19:47:30 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: But, if we examine Jack as a template of fear used by the Zodiac, we see a man who actually strangled all his known victims - only to then desecrate them after death. And, someone who was impersonated in writing by someone else, using red ink - not blood.
Dec 7, 2022 19:31:22 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...likely an old sword bayonet was employed - accompanied by a gun for persuading victims' submission. Thereafter, the Zodiac appears to have often referenced Jack the Ripper by inference, to perpetuate the lie that he was an ''all round killing machine''.
Dec 7, 2022 19:23:47 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...which represented the facts about him. All indications to date suggest that the Zodiac was not a ''man of blades'', with his Lake Berryessa attack a ''one-off'' on account that he was running out of guns. And in that case, a double-edged blade, most...

Rubislaw32: ..yet to be brought to justice, so nothing actually ''from the horse's mouth''. And B) The Zodiac kept reminding us that his writings were all about leaving ''clews'' - a combination of truth, lies and red herrings. And up to the readers to sort out that..
Dec 7, 2022 19:10:14 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: As negative criticism is heaped on the new Netflix TV series about Jeffrey Dahmer for deliberate misrepresentation of the facts, it's worth considering the pertinence of any filmic representation of the Zodiac for accuracy, given that A) The Zodiac has....

Rubislaw32: Donna Lass reward poster : ''Family are confident that her abductor/murderer will be arrested, tried and found guilty.''. Now then, human remains were placed by Flume Trail, just 7 weeks before the FBI's Dec 11th 2020 Tweet. Everything out at once - FBI ?
Dec 6, 2022 18:59:55 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: You are the weakest link FBI, as CA DOJ considers arresting the Zodiac. With the MA DOJ having little to be proud about. But FBI - instead of behaving yourselves, you have become headless chickens in the wake of Comey's dismissal and disgrace. Dead meat.
Dec 6, 2022 16:03:58 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: So you see FBI, Z has your number on attempting to blame him for Donna Lass - an Achilles heel for you FBI. In addition, Z will know that Boston D.A. Jonathan Blodgett assisted James Comey to impress the Crown Office with Joan Webster's case file.
Dec 6, 2022 15:54:45 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...to Donna's victimhood, instead of Judith Hakari. Then in (circa) 1997, with the Zodiac's poster superimposition of a cipher, indicating that the Zodiac had changed his assessment, Z blamed the FBI exclusively (BEWARE I AM STALKING DOUBLE-ZERO !).
Dec 6, 2022 15:48:57 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: So, for the Zodiac out there still at liberty, in 1974 he sent Donna's sister Mary a Christmas card inferring that Donna had been allocated ''Guardian of the Pines'' - believing that Mary was in on knowledge that the FBI had allocated the Pines card to....
Dec 6, 2022 15:44:20 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Face it FBI - you are ''screwed'' in all directions with influential LE hierarchies - and all of your case cover-ups have been observed; each with reasons, known by your peers. A ''can of worms'' - eh FBI ? But morally, the worst of these is Donna Lass.
Dec 6, 2022 9:01:04 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Moreover, and as far as I am aware, NCIS Washington D.C. were actually the first to know about the ''solution'' (MR Z = SON) under the Marianne Moore postage stamp, beyond CA DOJ & FBI. NCIS's first contact then, was with the Crown Office or US DOJ.
Dec 6, 2022 8:54:13 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: The implication then, that Comey cottoned on to Grant's DNA indicating he was Z's probable father, in 2014 - and went off in a ''hissy fit'', then breaking the law. And, with this information having emanated via the Crown Office (UK). Comey's downfall.
Dec 6, 2022 7:54:47 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: And, this is what the fall-out in the Zodiac case between CA DOJ & FBI seems to have come down to : James Comey felt that CA DOJ should have informed FBI about William Grant's DNA in 2002/2003. Whereas CA DOJ were officially, under no obligation to do so.
Dec 6, 2022 7:35:31 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...testing & eliminations that involved CA DOJ & FBI work, at the behest of President George W Bush. It may be the case then, that the FBI feel they were ''blind-sided'' by CA DOJ. FBI however, were in the service of CA DOJ like PD's, and no extra rights.
Dec 6, 2022 7:26:45 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: ...Zodiac Intelligence processors, one can't be certain if they the FBI received a similar circular as police departments, from CA DOJ. But 2004 would be in keeping with the DNA testing and suspects eliminations that took place 2002/2003. Those DNA....

Rubislaw32: ...from case custodians CA DOJ, to proactively investigate - so it seems that the circular was more related to letting PD's know that specific task requests from CA DOJ would no longer be forthcoming. Since the FBI held a different case role, as ....
Dec 6, 2022 7:19:16 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: Albeit unconfirmed, information I have read is that in 2004, a general circular went out to all PD's with Zodiac case connections, from the CA DOJ, that the case was to be ''run down'' on scale of investigations. PD's had to be served or gain permission...
Dec 6, 2022 7:14:20 GMT -8
Rubislaw32: That was poetic : The FBI peeled away the Marianne Moore postage stamp on the 1990 Celebrity Cipher card, to reveal that ''MR Z = SON''. Horrors for the FBI to find later that the CA DOJ had done them over William Joseph Grant's DNA. He was Z's Secret Pa.
