RIP Cecelia, attacked this date 48 years ago, dying 2 days later. One of the most shocking and sad parts of this case

Two weeks ago today, I stood on the shores of Lake Berryessa for the first time. It was peaceful, serene, even. I thought of Cecelia, the brutal attack that ended her life, thought of the distance Bryan would have crawled, stabbed and bleeding heavily for good, and how just days later, he forgave his would-be killer from the hospital bed where he recovered.

Despite the horror and cruelty in the world, there's just as much goodness. It helps to remember that. In the pictures I took that day, beams of sun reach down to bless the islands and I remember again the evil that happened there. While we may never know for certain the Zodiac's name, we can rest assured that whatever game he thought he was playing, he'll never, ever win.

R.I.P. Cecelia

Yesterday 12 Z sleuths plus myself went to the Lake Berryessa crime scene as we do each year to help keep her memory alive. Our goal hopefully is to try and get the Zodiac case solved. It is hard to sift through all of the misinformation that is in this case.

For instance I would like to bring to the attention of anyone in Law enforcement who will take a fresh look at this case, about the different descriptions of the costume worn that day 48yrs ago.
To this day it is believed that the costume was an elaborately sewn one piece black cotton outfit.

I have read several reports and listened to Bryan Hartnell in videos. Words that Bryan said which caught my attention were ," The hood looked like a paper sack". It had four corners and was flat on top.
"The dickey part came down with a circle cross in the center of that".
Hartnell also said he was able to see the Zodiac 's jacket collar. He would not be able to see the jacket collar if the costume was in one solid piece.

A dicky back then was something that came over the shoulders, not over the head and shoulders.

Some descriptions of the hood ( That is the part that covered the killers head) had slits for the eye holes. If they were only thin "slits" Bryan would not be able to see the brown hair through a slit. And Cecelia could not see that Zodiac had glasses under the hood with the clip -on's over them.

This is very important to me, because the costume that was put in my brown car in Napa Sept 28th or 29th 1969 ,was in two parts and was not a elaborately sewn costume. The white circle cross logo was the only part that some time was spent on. The eye holes were round not slits!
