But if you are using an incorrect number, that would make your discovery invalid.

TGOZ .. since Tim Miller letter has popped up I will put this in.. I was studying it a while back and as strange as that letter is two phrases jumped out.. 4 can be 5 or 6 and hectic public lo cation.. there is a dice game I had done a bit of research on because of the ParaDICE letter.. anyways.. this dice game has a winning roll (its played with three die) now 4 can be 5 or 6 in that game. 4, 5, 6, is the winning roll called straight kill. long story short the game is called "See Low" (American version) or in Chinese Cee-lo so if you know who my poi is..then it ties in, especially when you see how he has written."Hectic Public Lo cation" ... a little bit like the rock that had no earthly reason for being in a Maine hayfield. for me that letter stinks to high heaven of Z lots of clues in that Tim miller letter.. I have some other stuff but will have to dig it out of the backblocks of this tiny brain. Cheers
hope you can understand my line of thinking/reasoning
because I struggle with it :D

The entire article can be read here-

My opinion is that I find it suspicious that this card was suddenly discovered, misfiled in a folder in the newspaper's filing cabinet, just at the time the Fincher movie was being released. That coupled with Cunningham's opinion that the address on the envelope had been overwritten or traced makes this card for me a non event. That is to say I think it may have been a publicity stunt.


I agree. Considering this card is most likely a fake, it is sketchy at best to consider a POI and use the Eureka card in doing so.

The main reason I think that the card was a publicity stunt is because of the number of articles that the Chronicle wrote between 1994 and 2000. I have seven of the articles written during that time and all but one has pictures accompanying the articles. There were two or three special reports done on the Zodiac Killer during that time. These articles were multi page and had a number of pictures each.

It is claimed that this 1990 card was found misfiled in the photo folder at the Chronicle. Considering the number of times that reporters went to the photo file for pictures for their articles between 1994 and 2000, I find it inconceivable that the 1990 card was not noticed. It was only noticed when the Chronicle was writing a story about the Fincher movie in 2007. You could say, well maybe the card wasn't put in the photo file until after 2000 but that doesn't make much sense. Where was the card for ten years, why would someone take it out and then misfile it instead of turning it over to LE?

Makes perfect sense Seagull. We'll probably come to find out it was a movie prop. lol

Another thing I find interesting is the fact it would be recognized at all as possibly being from Zodiac by someone at the paper. I mean, if most people nowadays (or even the last 20 years) were to receive that card, they'd just be like WTH and probably toss it. There is no Zodiac reference whatsoever. We all see it because we are quite familiar...others less involved wouldn't have a clue...so-to-speak. ;)

The only thing that makes it hard for me to completely forget about this letter is how close the handwriting is to Ted Kaczynski's. If this was sent by Ted, it still doesn't mean he was Z. Not sure how/why this was added into a Z photo file. Yet another in hundreds of mysteries with the Z case.

Some seem to think that the keychain is a pen light, magner or another tool. Doing some searching, I think it's just what is called a bolt-action multitool pen. If you look at the left side of the object, you can see this hazy roundish shape attached to it - it's the bolt. It appears that the pen is perhaps also missing a part.

Something akin to these:

Is this multi-tool pen something that would have been available in 1990 when the card was mailed?

As I've posted before, in 1991 I found a greeting card whose lettering--to my eye, at least--was identical to Zodiac's. Which leads me to suspect that Zodiac may have been a greeting card designer/artist. Incidentally, my "POI" graduated with a degree in Graphic Design.
