Top 10 People Who Could Be The Zodiac Killer


How’s it going YouTube? I’m your host Landon Dowlatsingh and welcome
back to another most amazing top 10 video. For those of you who don’t know, the Zodiac
Killer was a serial killer who murdered his victims in California in the late 1960’s
to the early 1970’s. The name, Zodiac Killer originated because
the killer sent letters to the local press with cryptic messages. Only one of the four cryptograms have been
solved and the killer’s identity remains a mystery. So here are the top 10 people who could have
been the Zodiac Killer. Starting things off in at number 10 with Theodore
J. Kaczynski. The police started looking into him as a possible
suspect when a couple of people told them that he had a lot of similarities between
him and the Zodiac Killer. Theodore lived in the San Francisco Bay Area
from 1967-1969 which was the time that the Zodiac murders occurred in California. They also compared his signatures to the Zodiac’s
and they were very similar. Both of them also wrote letters to newspapers,
especially to the San Francisco Chronicle. Now in at number 9 we have Richard Gaikowski. He used to work for a newspaper in San Francisco
and one of his former coworkers sent long letters to the police accusing him of being
the Zodiac Killer. He said that Richard invited him to engage
violent acts together. He even appeared on a History Channel special
where he provided recordings of Richard’s voice where a police dispatcher who spoke
to the real Zodiac said that she thought it was the same voice. Earl Van Best Jr. comes into number 8 Out
of everyone on this list, his facial features are the closest to the sketch of the Zodiac
Killer. His son actually wrote a book accusing him
of being the Zodiac Killer because his father looks almost identical to the sketch, he lived
in California at the time of the killings, he was interested in mysteries and ciphers
and he knew several Satanists and Manon-family members. He was even arrested for statutory rape and
he might have had a grudge against a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle. Number 7 we have Bruce Davis. He was suspected of being the killer because
he has a long criminal record. When he moved to California the police and
the FBI kept a close eye on him and actually found that he was guilty of two murders. When they brought him in for questioning,
they asked him about the Zodiac murders but he refused to talk about them because he wasn’t
formally charged for those murders. Other experts believe that he could’ve been
the killer because when his father died the Zodiac killer made his first attack. Guy Hendrickson makes it into number 6. His daughter told investigators that her father
was the Zodiac Killer. She claimed that he took her with him on his
killing sprees when she was just seven years old and he told her that the gunshot sounds
were only firecrackers. She also told the media that she was the only
who stamped the cryptic letters and she embroidered the mask that the Zodiac killer wore. She even said that her father had killed 30-40
people and he apologized for that on his deathbed. Moving into number 5 with Jack Tarrance. He also looked like the composite sketch and
apparently, he had a stash of incriminating evidence including a roll of film that showed
possible Zodiac victims and a strange hooded costume like the one the Zodiac Killer wore
during one of the stabbings. Also, a document examiner said that his handwriting
matched the Zodiacs. Richard Marshall makes his way into number
4. He lived near the location where a Zodiac
victim was murdered and people told the police that they found him to be very odd and that
he always talked about wanting to find something more exciting than sex. He loved the movie The Red Phantom which was
mentioned in a 1974 Zodiac letter and he lived in a basement apartment which the Zodiac killed
also mentioned. He owned a typewriter that the Zodiac liked
to use but he was ruled out as a suspect because there wasn’t enough solid evidence. Number 3 brings us to Arthur Leigh Allen. He was questioned by the police in 1969 and
again in 1971 after his friend told the police that he wanted to kill people and attach a
flashlight to a gun just like the Zodiac did. He wore a Zodiac brand watch, he owned the
same caliber gun used in one of the Zodiac’s shootings and he was dishonorably discharged
from the Navy. He was ruled out as a suspect because his
fingerprints, palm prints, handwriting and DNA did not match the Zodiac’s. Ross Sullivan makes it into number 2. His coworkers claimed that Ross Sullivan made
them feel very uncomfortable and when a killing similar to the Zodiac occurred in the area,
he disappeared for several days. He also had a crew cut and glasses that was
similar to the composite sketch of the Zodiac killer and he was hospitalized several times
for bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Finally in at number 1 is Lawrence Kane. He was suspected of being the notorious Zodiac
Killer because he worked in the same hotel as one of the Zodiac’s victims, he served
on Naval reserves where he might have learned cryptic coding and in 1962 he was involved
in a car accident that left him with a brain injury that could have stopped him from controlling
his urges. Actually, a retired detective on this case
said that Lawrence’s name was embedded in one of the ciphers and one person who managed
to escape from the Zodiac Killer identified a photo of Lawrence Kane as the abductor. So why wasn’t he arrested? I have no clue. Well there you guys have it…
