The ability of the executioner to ''disappear into thin air'',given that he was likely to have been very bloodied,and possibly hard of hearing,will always raise questions that will remain unanswered,until the case is solved.
Did ''Zodiac'' make for the Presidio ? Was he booked in at a nearby hotel ? I have even read about a suggestion that Zodiac may have had a relationship with Donna Lass,and held keys to a flat that she owned,nearby.
The confidence shown by the man who dispatched of Mr.Stine,suggests that he was equally confident of ''step 2'' - getting away.Like a well seasoned bank robber,it seems that he had a head for time allocation [?].Personally,I believe that it was,with a vehicle in mind,that would spirit him away.But was the getaway vehicle his,or that of an accomplice ?
Clearly,the police felt disappointment and failure,in their inability to apprehend the perpetrator.Given that it soon became apparent that this man may well have been Zodiac,must have made the pill that much harder to swallow.
The horse ''bolted'',and whatever transpired in the minutes that proceeded,can't be taken back,and changed.
It is never presumed that Officer Fouke actually failed in his duty.But I suspect that he rues that he was unable to emerge as a hero [?].
Well I was saying only yesterday on Richard's site:
"You know, I've been trying to think of, given the many differing accounts by Armond & Don, which is most likely to be true in regards specifically to what Z said to Don. If you take the many different accounts of what Zodiac said to Fouke and use logic, the evidence and on scene response, and Z's own words I think the answer is clear.
The most likely and accurate sequence of events is the one in which Pelissetti said in one account: "The other unit stopped someone and asked that person had He seen anyone and the person said 'Yes, a man just ran into the Presidio.'
Why do I say this? Well, This is what Armond claimed Don had told him about what He had said and reply given in his encountering a White Male near Maple and Jackson intersection. Now in Z's letter He says "This cop car pulled up and one of them called me over and asked had I seen anyone acting strange and I said that I had and there was this man who went running by waving a gun and they peeled rubber and went around the corner as I had directed them."
Now the temptation here is to read Z as literal again in that He directed them to the area up street where He saw this supposed armed man but I don't think He means this at all. I think Zodiac said exactly what Armond Pelissetti stated He tells Don and tells Don "Yes, I just saw a man with a gun run into the Presidio" and then offers the extra help of pointing uphill and telling Don that three blocks uphill at Arguello a right turn will lead directly onto west pacific itself.
Again, I know I keep saying this but I can't get away from it, if Fouke is told this by man who is a nobody then I think He would not have second guessed himself as He admitted to doing so. I believe that it was none other than Mr Qvale who directs Fouke to the Presidio and if this is correct then Fouke has my sympathy because at this moment He and the guy are engaging, Fouke is under the assumption that this is a robbery gone bad where the person responsible is desperate enough to kill for a few dollars and so to suspect this man of the crime, the multi millionaire Kjell Qvale, is simply lunacy! Kjell is, in fact, making his way home to His multi million dollar mansion just the other side of Maple Intersect.
Don said when asked why He never gave this white guy a second thought "I didn't think of it in my report because I assumed that He (the actual killer) did not live in the area (and He knew Mr Qvale did live in that area)" So what Don is saying is He didn't think of reporting his encountering this person because He knew it was Qvale and Qvale is not someone that anyone would think to report seeing when you are seeking a robbery suspect where 6 or 7 dollars are the target. "I didn't think about it in my report...." He said, which is exactly what I would say if someone asked me why I didn't report seeing a person that I knew to be such a rich and influential man as that of a petty thief and murder suspect
