I posted this very possible Zodiac story site once but think not here and not in detail.
In KC MO. in 73 I believe, on a side road off US 50 highway & 63rd st just in KC from Raytown Mo. ,was a place where you could view the 63rd st drive-In screen quite well .
People would park at night to watch the movie screen ,couples mostly. This place/spot is across from the Comfort Inn on 50 or 350 hwy they call it in the city , the road is called West blue parkway rd. down past the business closest to the median crossing , back then the other businesses were not there.
Well in the spring of 73 a couple was parking around 11pm , watching the screen , then a man with a hood or mask came out of the woods ,say 150 ft away ,walked up the hill pulled a gun on this couple , the man driving thought it was a robbery ,but the hooded ,Caucasian man shot him dead ,then fled back the way he came.
According to the news paper article ( I have looked for it but have not found it yet our pc search index only goes to 82 ) I remember it being a TV news segment too.
police swarmed the place did not find anyone ,it was suspected the girl friend or wife (,not sure) was in on it ,but she claimed not so . I believe I remember later on that year others claimed they saw him again at the spot just out of the woods ,but he did nothing else.
in 75 I started driving my 70 charger R/T 4 speed, 2 brothers close to my home were with me one night ,said" hey lets go see Cybil Shepard naked in the Last picture show" movie that was at this Drive In.
we drove to it but the traffic was backed up static to 63rd st., they were sold out. leaving the older kid says to park up on this outer road to see it as her movie was already playing , I did there were about 15 cars up there , I found a open space were you could see the screen , then the younger boy in the back says ,not here this is where the guy got killed by the Zodiac or other killer, and his brother confirmed it , but moving meant the screen was not in view very good. ( I had already tried driving ahead once then came back).
This older Brother had a sack with 4 cold duck drinks we were working on , it was a 65 degree night . Ken the older one said this is where she is naked ,the pool scene. his brother in the back seat had 4 or 5 times looked back down the hill to the woods once saying he saw something like a man there , I remember some fog patches down the 10 in tall grass slope. About the time Cybil Shepard enters the pool room in the movie , this mike in the back goes off ,he's coming up the hill and has something in his hand ,Go!Go!.... meaning me to get the car out of here ,I looked that way which was harder to do because it was behind me, thought I saw something ,but didn't want to miss Cybil.
Ken then was watching the slope too and mike pointed the guy out , both of them said lets get out of here now . I had seen the guy walking up the grass ,but thought he may just be going to the road ,taking a short cut , what are the chances it's the same guy ....also Cybil is stepping up to the diving board and they are egging her on to strip. 16 year old me kind of needed - wanted to see that!,
a few seconds later mike squirms out the R window and runs up the road a bit , The guy on the slope is in the process of putting on a hood of sorts and has what looks like a barrel of a pistol from his hand Ken yelling ,start the car ! couple of seconds later I do crank it as .....Drum roll ............Cybil is NAKED. I kinda forgot about the killer approaching for 3 sec.
there was a young couple in a car in front of us some 40 ft ahead and a guy in a Ford f150 closer on the other side of the road that Mike had talked to about the guy /killer coming. I was now trying to get the car started ,problem was that after 15 minutes the engine would not crank over fast enough some times to start and it soon drained enough it was useless to try .
then the F150 guy backs up slightly behind us , he has saved the day, cause he has a 30-30 on a gun rack on the back window (,Remember those days ?) he layed it across the hood, yelled something like drop your gun , asked us you see he refused to stop right? the killer kept coming ,then he pulled the trigger ....click... he cocked and pulled again ..click .. saying he wasn't sure how old the ammo was ,got back in and sped off as had the couple in front of us and they told other cars in front of them .
The guy had ran back down the hill away from us. Mike had run up to the highway right after , I and Ken tried to push the car and would jump the engine in gear....you know what I found out then ...the car had a bit of a brake dragging , Ken pointed out as we had the car only 30 ft ahead the killer guy was again coming towards us ,mike returned trying to push it faster and now I deemed it worth a try to start in gear , thought it was in 3rd ,but no that's 1st ...the 4000 lb er came to a stop or 1 mph. both Ken and
Mike wanted to run away said he was coming , I couldn't see him ...it was dark I think the moon was full though , just a bit farther and the hill will give good speed to try to start probably 12 sec later I had to get in the car to keep hold. mike said he is back there. ken is inside the car I let it out ...I forgot it again in 1st but caught it put in 3rd still good speed no start , Had the ign off ...my bad there is more hill though Ken yelling you idiot, a couple of times didn't really help.
this time ignition on in 3rd let out clutch it barely fired a time or two , let it coast more and then it started. we drove up a street then went back found his brother. they called police when home ,I remember a police car came by my home wanted to talk, mostly see if my story matched theirs. Pretty dramatic night for a 16 ,15 ,14 year olds .
