Zodiac Killer has captured the imagination of many individuals over the years, particularly since nobody seems to know who, exactly, was behind this string of extremely heinous murders. The murderer, who stalked Northern Californian residents back in the late 60’s and early 70’s, claims to have killed 37 people during his reign of terror, though police could only link him to five. Despite several extensive investigations, the killer’s identity remains unknown. Unfortunately, the San Francisco police department officially closed the case in 2004.
Former California Highway Patrol officer Lyndon Lafferty, however, claims he has discovered who was behind the murders. In the author’s new book, “The Zodiac Killer Cover Up”, Lafferty explores the topic in great detail, going as far as to point a finger at one person in particular. Of course, in order to keep potential lawsuits at bay, the author chose to use aliases to help tell his story without fear of prosecution.
“The police departments in general were acting under the authority of the Solano County sheriff, so they were instructed you do not investigate this man until you have permission from the judge,” Lafferty explained to ABC News. “It’s been very traumatic, and it’s been frustrating beyond belief.”
In his book, Lafferty states that suspect, who is now a 91 year-old recovering alcoholic, was investigated back in the 70’s, though police corruption prevented authorities from arresting the individual. The author also explains that the killer was motivated by rage after discovering that his wife was having an affair.
“This was a story that I inherited. I did not ask for it,” Lafferty said. “I am the only person who can testify under oath that these things were absolutely true. My satisfaction is telling my story as it happened.”
Personally, I would probably listen to what Lafferty had to say on the subject if he wasn’t trying to sell me a book, but maybe that’s just me. “The Zodiac Killer Cover-Up: The Silenced Badge” is currently available on Amazon for a whopping $48.95. I’ll pass, thanks.
Avengers was cool, but it’s a bummer Hulk and Iron Man still haven’t solved who the Zodiac killer is.
