I would suggest, 1after909, that the public can get a little ahead of themselves, in believing anything that the FBI state in public, with respect to the Zodiac Killer case ?
On December 11th 2020, the FBI merely alluded to the acknowledgement of a cipher's solution by private citizens and, gave notice that they would not be commenting further.
This Tweet was their first public notice on the case, for 52 years when, they had previously offered an autographed letter of thanks from J Edgar Hoover, for any tips submitted by members of the public, for which they found of interest.
Perhaps it ought to be noted that, the FBI are in the service of the case's custodians, the CA DOJ and, are therefore presumed to act at the CA DOJ's behest and, on the CA DOJ's behalf. As are all other law enforcement agencies, including Bay area P.D.'s. The one and only exception being the US DOJ. And, as far as is known, only the SFPD nowadays has any remit granted by the CA DOJ, beyond what might be termed '' fetch & carry '' duties. And further, with any delegated duties to perform from the CA DOJ, billed to federal funding.
Certainly not the '' co-operative '' of agencies with like-minded intentions, that politically correct public-relations utterances might deceive. For, make no mistake - this is a failed case of 53 years standing which, remains the responsibility of those behind closed doors, in Departments of Justice.
With regard to the Personal Ad. placed in the Seattle Times on March 25th 2021 and, not much more than three months after the FBI's Tweet, it is even conceivable that an alive and genuine Zodiac Killer has reacted to the FBI's declaration with pointed allusion to the 340 cipher solution, given the media bandwagon following in its wake. It is always possible that the CA DOJ sought to provoke a response from the Zodiac, in the first place and, that the Personal Ad. is a response that has materialised.
At this early stage of scenario considerations, I should just like to offer members and visitors a recommendation that they visit the FBI vaults and examine the first few pages of the William ( Billy ) Graham File 2. These pages represent two letters sent to the famous evangelist Rev.Billy Graham, from someone calling themselves '' St.Michael + '', going back to 1976. There are, I believe, interesting rhyming and riddle comparisons to be made with the verse employed in the March 25th 2021 Personal Ad. .
Of further interest may be, that '' St.Michael + '' returned in May 2009, to extort both Rev.Billy Graham and Robert Graysmith, in correspondence sent to the IRS offices, in Knoxville , TN. .

Simply as a reference at this time, in March 2019 I came across the postcard in the FBI's HEARNAP Files ( File 32, Pages 90 -92 ), which I was to discover through deciphering the commercial small print on its plain side, and was entitled : '' McKenzie River, Oregon, with the Three Sisters in the background.''
The '' Three Sisters '' refer to a set of three neighbouring mountains in Oregon. The postcard has now been generally adopted as a '' possible '' Zodiac correspondence, known as the '' Nixon Postcard '', starting '' Dear King '' and signed for, with '' A concerned citizen for freedom ! ''. The four lines which constitute Richard Nixon's White House address, start : RICH WHITE PEN WASH .
The '' Love interest '' had been Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum, in the original The Mikado, but became Yankee-Doo and By-Gum in The Texas Mikado.
( It is my belief that the back of the Halloween Card actually stated : '' By-Gum ; By Pope, and By Fake : By-Knife '', with '' PAPA DICE '' meaning '' Pope says '', as opposed to '' PARADICE ''.)
''Par for the course '', with the FBI's counter-intelligence unit who, held the Halloween Card for 48 hours before giving The SF Chronicle permission to publish it. The Halloween Card to Paul Avery arrived on October 27th 1970, and was published on October 31st 1970 ( Halloween ).
( The Zodiac had made a play on '' The Wheel of Death '' - a blame-palming exercise on William Joseph Grant, a Catholic lay preacher, '' Pope '' , for having murdered Darlene Ferrin, whom the Zodiac referred to as '' By-Gum ''. The FBI simply reverted the play on '' The Wheel of Death '' back to its original components ( By Gun ; By Rope ; By Fire ; By Knife ). The Zodiac subliminally had referred to himself, as '' NCP '' - which is the abbreviation for '' Nincompoop ''. ).
( The '' By Fake By-Knife '' refers to the Zodiac's weapon employed at Lake Berryessa - a WW2 sword bayonet which, would have been purchased in a junk or antique shop and, would have been difficult for investigators to trace. The leader of the Manson Family , on the 9th and 10th of August 1969, Charles Tex Watson, had employed a sword bayonet at both the scenes of the Tate and LaBianca murders and, had complained to Charles Manson, about not supplying him , Watson, with '' a proper knife ''. ).

Had the Zodiac sent a correspondence to the Seattle Times before ?
It seems likely.
On December 11th 1971, a typed letter was sent, in replication, to the Seattle Times, as well as the Washington Post, the New York Times, and Los Angeles Times.
The letter, now known as the '' I knew '' letter, was signed : '' D B COOPER '', and presumed, then, to have come from the Skyjacker '' Dan Cooper ''.
On November 24th 1971, a man calling himself '' Dan Cooper '' had purchased a one-way ticket to Seattle, at Portland Airport, Oregon, and then proceeded to hijack the plane, with its 37 passengers, before landing at Seattle. ( Me - 37, SFPD - 0 ? ).
The '' I knew '' letter was only released into the public domain 4 years ago, in November 2017.
The '' I knew '' letter contained '' CCCCCCC '' - 7 C's, when '' CC '' is the norm, indicating '' Carbon Copy ''.
The bottom of the '' I knew '' letter to the Seattle Times, looked like the following :
New York Times
Seattle Times - ( Then, a ten-digit code, yet to be released )
Los Angeles Times
All four newspapers received a ten-digit code, for themselves - so the author ( D B COOPER / The Zodiac ? ) intended law enforcement to gather all four replicated letters together, in order to crack a cryptogram sent by the author.
Employing the cipher keys that Rubislaw 32 claims, solves the Zodiac's 340 Cipher, the cryptogram part-solved ( since the FBI have been stingy enough to only provide two of the four ten-digit codes ) is :
'' Purchase Price Part - I inserted ten cents...( a ten-digit code )....( another ten-digit code ).....You see ? - Thanks. '' ( The Washington Post cost ten cents in 1971 )
But also, another subliminal message, reading vertically :
'' CCCCCCC Wash New Seat Los A '' = '' The Seven Seas eradicate new seat loser '' = '' All Over - Dan Cooper is no more ''.
I have appealed to the FBI to publish the further two ten-digit codes which I believe could be also solved, employing the cipher keys that I, Rubislaw 32 found, in order to solve the Zodiac's 340 Cipher - but to no avail.
I have also appealed to the FBI to pay me for at least 3 years wages, in view of all the code-breaking work that I have performed for them - again, to no avail.
The FBI of course, are not only dishonest - but ungrateful and '' skin-flints '' also. Demonstrated time and time again.

In the first two lines of verse in the March 25th 2021 Personal Ad. to the Seattle Times, the ( presumed Zodiac ? ) has written :
'' Life is short, Eternity is long - when passing through, don't get it WRONG.''
Given that the latest letter released by the FBI, attributed officially to Dan Cooper, was sent to the Seattle Times ( December 11th 1971 ), it is possible that this recent verse ( March 25th 2021 ) may have had some allusions to the Zodiac himself, with reference to his theft of Dan Cooper's mantle, as a hoaxing author of letters.
After landing at Seattle Airport, Dan Cooper released the 37 passengers, in return for $200,000 and a new air journey to Reno. And, it is believed that he, Dan Cooper, jumped out of the jet airliner, somewhere over Oregon airspace, at between 7,000 and 10,000 feet altitude, in a thunder storm and pitch darkness.
It could be that the Zodiac is confirming his belief that Dan Cooper....got it '' WRONG ''.
The Zodiac's Exorcist Letter, January 1974 : '' He plunged himself into the billowy wave, and an echo arose from the suicides grave......Me - 37, SFPD - 0.''.

The '' I knew '' letter ( December 11th 1971 ) was released into the public domain, by the FBI, in November 2017.
In August 2017, I Rubislaw 32, sent the FBI a solution to the Zodiac's 340 Cipher, with of course, implicated cipher keys which solved the 340.
Three weeks later, the Crown Office, U.K., received Rubislaw 32's same 340 Cipher solution, through a liaison detective assigned to me, with a murder re-investigation remit, from the Crown Office.
Between my sending of, in effect, the cipher keys for the Zodiac's 340 Cipher solution, and the making public, by the FBI, of the D B COOPER '' I knew '' letter, was just three months. Given that those same cipher keys appear to also unlock the secrets of the '' I knew '' letter, and that Rubislaw 32's cipher keys appear also to unlock the secrets of Z38 ( a profane diatribe ) and Z6 + 3 ( profanities inflicted on the American Automobile Association ).....a veritable '' collection '' now emerges, of the probable extent of those same cipher keys that accounted for the Zodiac's 340 Cipher solution, in the first place.
Message to Oranchak & Co : '' Keep digging for steganographic messages in your computer-generated pastiche, masquerading as a solved cipher, by ' Private Citizens ' - but, as much as you try, you won't find them.''.
It is though, the FBI who are a disgrace to public service, and the families of Zodiac's victims, in particular, by their hoodwinking and prevarication.

The latest letter released by the FBI ( November 2017 ) attributed to a same author ( Dan Cooper / The Zodiac ? ) was the '' I knew '' letter, dated DECEMBER 11TH 1971.
The FBI's first public notice, with respect to the case of the Zodiac Killer, for more than 50 years, was the FBI Tweet, dated DECEMBER 11TH 2020.
Could it be that the FBI deliberately selected DECEMBER 11TH for their Tweet, as an extra taunt to the Zodiac ( ? ), given that the FBI knew that acknowledging '' a cipher recently solved by private citizens ''....would annoy him enough, anyway ?
In examining the bottom of the '' I knew '' letter again, but this time as a collection from all 4 newspapers :
Wash Post 717171684*
New York Times ( Code yet to be released by the FBI )
Seattle Times ( Code yet to be released by the FBI )
Los Angeles Times 7698QA2753
I have discussed the 10-digit codes' employing Rubislaw 32's cipher keys which unlock the solutions to Z340, Z38 ( Ist Fairfield ), and Z6+3 ( 2nd Fairfield ), in more detail in the D B Cooper thread, in the ciphers section at this site.
But, again here is the message deciphering the bottom of the '' I knew '' letter, as a part-solution :
'' Purchase Price Part - I inserted ten cents.....( New York Times 10-digit Code )......( Seattle Times 10-digit Code ).......you see ? Thanks.''
So, until the FBI release the 10-digit codes for The New York Times and Seattle Times, the full message, employing Rubislaw 32's cipher keys for Z340, cannot be realised.
Given a ( presumed ? ) Zodiac response to the December 11th 2020 Tweet from the FBI, on March 25th 2021, was the response indicative that the FBI had dangled a '' December 11th '' baiting carrot, in front of the Zodiac's nose ? That in effect, the Zodiac would know that a reference to '' a cipher solved by private citizens ''....was an FBI lie ?
'' The Seven Seas Wash New Seat Los A '' = '' The Seven Seas eradicate new seat loser ''. A Zodiac reference to Dan Cooper's demise, stated as a newspaper headline.

To senior law enforcement, a message :
I would suggest that the '' I knew '' letter, published by the FBI 4 years ago, is proof positive, that the December 11th date of the FBI's tweet, was deliberate.
You employed counter-intelligence methods, in order to acquire a response from the Zodiac, and it worked - on March 25th 2021.
What are you going to do about it ? So many times, there is proof uncovered of your implementation of these sorts of psychology-related tactics and, that they often work for you, in a short-term time frame. But, they never lead to an arrest.
The very least you could do now, is release the two remaining 10-digit codes, from the Zodiac, pertaining to the New York Times and Seattle Times. For yes, you did stitch the Zodiac up like a kipper....again. But no action beyond this.
I have seen, all too many times, law enforcement's '' games '' masquerading as '' serious tactics '', played out by senior law officers simply acting like schoolboys getting their jollies off.
This must STOP ! Pull your fingers out, and act with real intent and serious purpose....for once in your lives. Consider the families of victims who go through heartache, every day of their lives, wondering about the real truth and, why their loved ones lost their lives, unlawfully.
You, law enforcement, should be working around the clock, to secure justice finally, for the Zodiac's victims. No more high days and holidays; pension plans and golden handshakes. A more altruistic approach to bringing the Zodiac to answer for his deeds, should be on view - quit the bickering and infighting that clearly goes on, behind the scenes. The procrastination and truly pathetic prevarication.
The Zodiac is still alive, and you know it. His name is known and, you know why he did what he did.
Hurry up ! - for crying out loud.

To the patient readers, at this site....the only question would appear to be how the Zodiac paid for his Seattle Times personal ad. on March 25th 2021, without leaving financial-related clues behind ( ? ).
I would suggest that senior law enforcement know where the Zodiac lives, anyway. As I do. It will involve extradition from a foreign country.
One does have to wonder if senior law enforcement '' Stateside '' are actually just biding time, waiting for an arrangement to come about, at diplomatic level.
But, is this the best that they can come up with, at present ? Hardly a re-assurance to the families of the Zodiac's victims.
What kind of people run the enforcement of law, at the highest level ? A shambolic motley crew of assorted professional psychopaths - leaving a paper trail of mess, in their wake.

As a footnote perhaps, with respect to the '' I knew '' letter, sent to 4 newspapers on DECEMBER 11th 1971 which, collectively contained 4 10-digit codes.
Two of the codes have been released by the FBI, with two codes still retained by this federal agency.
The only reason that two of the 10-digit codes were released in November 2017 was, because the FBI were taken to court by D B Cooper sleuth, and author of '' The Last Master Outlaw '', Tom Colbert who, sought to prove that the FBI were deliberately covering up information that would prove that the identity of Dan Cooper was '' Robert Rackstraw ''.
Tom Colbert lost his court case against the FBI. But, the obvious evidence now is, that the FBI had been reluctant to release the 10-digit codes associated with the '' I knew '' letter....and '' escaped '', so to speak, with only having to release 2 of the 4 10-digit codes, into the public domain.
Tom Colbert became uneasy last year when, he found out of my research into a possible '' Zodiac - D B Cooper '' link. I made it plain to Mr.Colbert that my interest only focuses on the possibility/probability that the Zodiac elected to steal Dan Cooper's '' mantle '', as such, and use it to impersonate Dan Cooper, as a small-time extortionist, through correspondences. And this, I believe, should be emphasised - The Zodiac was NOT Dan Cooper the hijacker.
I publicly ask of the FBI again : '' Please release the remaining 2 10-digit codes, related to the '' I knew '' letter signed '' D B COOPER '', and dated DECEMBER 11TH 1971.''
I would suggest that, if the DECEMBER 11th 2020 FBI Tweet tells us anything now, it is that the FBI suspect, at the very least, that the Zodiac Killer is the author of the 6 letters to date published by them, the FBI, previously attributed to hijacker Dan Cooper.
And naturally, a follow-up implication is, that it is the cipher keys uncovered by me, Rubislaw 32, which solve the Zodiac's 340 Cipher, that are also of use to solve the 4 10-digit codes, supplied by the author of the DECEMBER 11th 1971 '' I knew '' letter.

And '' YES '' - a further implication to the DECEMBER 11th 2020 FBI Tweet is that :
The '' cipher solved by private citizens '' was a ruse which has actually made stooges of the computer enthusiasts Doranchak, Jarive and Sam. Dan Olson, administrator and head of the FBI's Cryptanalysis and Racketeering Unit, mislead Mr.David Oranchak; made false claims to having conferred with the families of the Zodiac's victims and, pulled the wool over the eyes of the general public.
( Eh FBI ? - Now beholden to the U.S. Government and other countries, because you messed up so badly, in the past.)

For the 4 newspapers featured in the '' I knew '' typed letter of DECEMBER 11th 1971, The year 2021 represents the following anniversaries :
The Washington Post : 144th anniversary
The New York Times : 170th anniversary
The Seattle Times : 125th anniversary
The Los Angeles Times : 140th anniversary
Are these newspapers the ones for which the Zodiac refers to as : HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE ZODIAC SISTER/S ! ( playing their part, in '' his '' D.B.Cooper '' I knew '' letter ).
( The personal ad. in The Seattle Times has now been removed - but still available to view, for members at this site. If anyone can ascertain whether the other three newspapers received a similar personal ad, on or around March 25th 2021 - then the information would be gratefully appreciated.)
But naturally, the Zodiac's reply to the FBI's DECEMBER 11th 2020 Tweet, represents a 50th anniversary of the 4 newspapers' parts played, in his '' I knew '' letter.
Last Edit: Sept 4, 2021 22:36:17 GMT -8 by Rubislaw32
Indeed, I believe that the implications are, that The Seattle Times was not the only newspaper to have had the personal ad. placed by the ( presumed ) Zodiac, on or around March 25th 2021. That in effect, the intention was, to place this same personal ad. in The Washington Post ; The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times....as well as The Seattle Times. And so, the Zodiac seeing this act, as one way of getting his own back on the FBI, for their DECEMBER 11th 2020 Tweet, and to their embarrassment....for having brought up the subject of telegraphing him, the Zodiac, with their, the FBI's knowledge that it was he who elected to steal Dan Cooper's mantle, for the purposes of small-time correspondence extortion.
Was it worth it FBI ? All you are actually doing is letting the Zodiac know that you are currently powerless to arrest him. And he, the Zodiac, is not going to just roll over for you, and offer his hands to be cuffed.
Thought you could get away with these schoolboy antics, at the first opportunity of knowing that Mr.Trump was leaving office - eh FBI ?
Yes.. it must have been humiliating for you, when your boss Mr.Comey got fired by Mr.Trump, for '' showboating '' ( ? ). But, that is no excuse for flexing your muscles, with a reckless gung ho exercise, yourselves.
When the cat's away, the mice will play ( ? ).
Now, after all that recent disingenuous nonsense about your affection for the late Doctor Martin Luther King, it really is time for you to grow up.
If the Zodiac can be brought to justice, it is you, the FBI, who are going to have to contend with questions about the assassination of Black Panther student leaders, Bunchy Carter.and John Huggins, after all.
That's right, Campbell Hall, UCLA, January 17th 1969 . And, so the Zodiac tells us, Herb Caen suggested that you, the FBI, were responsible....or, at least gave you '' near credit '' for assisting '' others '', including FBI agent and getaway driver, Brandon Clearly.
'' Caen accuses neo-Fascist cops near credit on one '' student race assist '' at UCLA toilet. Teletype code - a dullard's suspense.'' - The Zodiac
'' If anything dire happens to me ( or any I love ) what I gave the cops gets published immediately.'' - The Zodiac
Last Edit: Sept 5, 2021 8:16:12 GMT -8 by Rubislaw32
Just in case readers here, are wondering about references to history, The Zodiac, in his 340 Cipher solution, was referring to events at Campbell Hall, UCLA, on January 17th 1969 when, ex-FBI agent Claude '' Chuchessa '' Hubert emerged from an adjoining wash room, and assassinated unarmed Black Panther student leaders Bunchy Carter and John Huggins. Complicit in this act of unlawful slaying were Harold Jones, Donald Hawkins, and George and Larry Stiner who, had created diversionary ploys, leading up to the execution of Carter and Huggins. Following the double-assassination, those involved were driven away by FBI agent Brandon Clearly. Ever since, Harold Jones and Claude Hubert have remained at large and, have yet to face the weight of the law, for their unlawful acts. There are many who believe that assassin Claude Hubert resides in French Guyana to this day and, is facilitated by the FBI themselves.
'' Caen accuses neo-Fascist cops near credit on one '' student race assist '' at UCLA toilet. Teletype code - a dullard's suspense.''....is simply what the Zodiac wrote down, in his satirical and surrealistic piece which constitutes part of his 340 Cipher solution (...and NOT the virtual reality vanilla tripe claimed by Oranchak & Co, and acknowledged by the FBI...).
It doesn't mean that the Zodiac was telling the truth - not least that Herb Caen actually referred to events, nor offered an opinion on those events of January 17th 1969.
BUT...this part of the 340 Cipher solution, including the concealed '' Bident of Hades '' in the solution's grid also ( e.g. COON U, U DID UCLA ) refers to the ensuing violence from the Zodiac's elected perspective. AND...the FBI have allowed the Zodiac to get under their skin, fearing that a focus will fall again on those Campbell Hall, UCLA events, if or when the Zodiac is arrested.
'' YES '' - the FBI would be right that it could be a bit embarrassing for them. But, this must not get in the way of attempts to bring the Zodiac to justice for crimes of murder. Nor, that the FBI take opportune moments to lie to the families of the Zodiac's victims, and the general public.
As for the computer enthusiasts, Doranchak, Jarive and Sam ? They should have been more careful about what they wished for and, who they were attempting to court favour with - an FBI, with wounded pride.
FBI Crypto boss Dan Olson to David Oranchak : '' It's looking solid, Dave .'' (...that'll do nicely, Dave ( ? )...)
The reality is '' Anything but solid '' and the FBI only add to their past mistakes in the Zodiac case, by attempting to paper over the cracks which, are actually '' gaping great big holes ''.
