Lindy Sue Biechler

Discussion of crimes & cases NOT RELATED to the Zodiac Killer

Lindy Sue Biechler

I believe that if Zodiac moved out of state, then the murder of Lindy Biechler in Pennsylvania could very well be the work of Zodiac. If she was killed in CA, I believe she would likely be considered a victim. The M.O. and tactics of Lindy's killer closely matches zodiac, right down to his demand that his letter be printed in the Friday paper.



Some of the same taunting Zodiac words, phrases, and misspellings appear in the letter, and the letter writer demands to be published in the Friday paper. It sounds alot like the Zodiac's M.O.

Anyhow, Lindy worked at a flower shop at the time of her murder, near a hospital. As we know, there are a few nurses that could be possible Z victims. Also, Tracers posted this on another forum about a famous Zodiac that was getting images of who Z was:

"I'm going to try to summarize the impressions etc. that Delouise presented in these articles:

He felt that the Zodiac

*May have known the victims at BRS

*Was appr. 28 years old, weighed 135-145 lbs. and was around 5'8" and had silky brown hair

*Was possibly "high" during his Vallejo crimes and on some "downer" drug at LB

*May have worked around horses or dogs, may have had a white dog, may have had hay on his clothes, may have worked at race tracks around the area

*is lonely, loves flowers
*feels he has suffered many injustices, hates LE and committed his early murders primarily to "bug the cops"

*May have applied for a job with LE but was rejected

*May have been a former policeman or newspaper man

*May have spent time in an institution such as an orphanage oe mental hospital on an outpatient basis

Delouise also sees certain words associated with Zodiac. He sees the word "field," which could refer to a town or gas station

He also sees "r-o-t-h"

He also sees a small bridge nine miles south of town.

Delouise says he received an impression of the identity of the killer, and gave the name to LE to check out. Police then tell him the person he named was checked out earlier by police, but was ruled out when one victim "expressed doubt" that the man was the attacker after the victim was shown a photograph of the man.

Delouise said on Jan 21, 1970 that if he had been in town two weeks earlier, Zodiac may have sought help, as he predicted. (not sure why Delouise says that.)

He also says he has been told (by whom--actual people or his impressions?) that zodiac "has altered his appearance greatly in recent weeks."

Note that the Belli letter was public knowledge by Dec. 29, 1969"

The writer of the anonymous letter in Lindy's case signed the letter JANICE CRUM. Police in PA looked all over for any Janice Crum, but did not find one. I found two in the Bay area of CA. One was right near the Kathleen Johns attack site (very close to Ricardo's home i think), and the other Janice Crum was a retired teacher living in SF not far from the Stine murder scene. Could Z have moved from the Bay area to PA, and been responsible for Lindy's murder? Maybe at least wrote the letter to police? Also, on the one year anniversary of her murder, her grave stone was vandalised. It could be a longshot that Z killed Lindy, but thw letter in my opinion, matches closely with Z's letters.

Text of the letter:

hi sheeler
Just Eats up your heart knowing you havn't caught me yet, still around, Lindy's marker on her grave just turned me on like she did, and the way she looked all bloody, like the paint on her Marker, the scratch and nick marks represent the knife stabes.
Count them.
you wondered if the guy at the gas station in Mountville were related to Biechlers murder. forget it man, no way.
I'll tell you what Chief Pig, you print this Letter in the paper along with a Picture in Friday nights Lancaster Paper and saturday mornings paper, and I might confesss When I get off my trip. You see the world owes me a living, maybe I give you a few hints who I am.
got busted once for Drugs a few years back
Live in West end of Lancaster Suburbs
I am 5'10" tall 205 LBS fat and Beautiful
and capable of killing again without knowing it
Dec. 5, 1975 was under the stupor of amfetamines Like right know.
Well educated man in the Community, single, good job but god please chief help me I am loosing my mind help me before I kill again, the headaches kill me Every time it aches, the Drugs only Calm it temporarily.
Will god forgive me ---------
Please print this Chief in the paper so I know you got it. v then I write you again, god I need a priest what have I done.
Help me please
P.S. chief sheeler my friend has confess to the killing of Lindy Sue biechler, as god is my withness Do as he asks, print this letter on the front page, I am not aware of his intentions right now but contemplating murder is not his intentions, he is mentally sick. When the letter appears, then he will turn himself in, he described the relationship he and Lindy had before he killed her. He only realizes it now when your on Drugs your not responsible for your actions. Please he is asleep now. That's why I finished the letter. All I can tell you my friend frequents manor shopping center in the Evenings and the fields around it. Mostly weeknights. He will contact you very soon and oh when he Does please bring a Catholic priest to the police station. Janice Crum

Just thinking out loud here.

Are there any similarities between this possible writing from the west coast EAR/ONS (which may be a plant) at top and bottom and the letter from the Lindy Sue Biechler killer in between?

Both are home invasion murders with some MO matches. We tend to limit ourselves geographically, but many serial killers like Bundy operated nationwide.

Crime author/writer/journalist, Michelle McNamara became interested in the Biechler case,and asked me if I would write a short piece about the case for her crime blog,which I did. When she publishes it, I will post a link to it here.

Good article, Morf!

Interesting remark by Michelle McNamara, that 86% of serial killers are transient construction workers. Kind of surprising. Seems like we never hear about those guys. Good thing to know, though.

Yes, nice job, morf. That case needs all of notoriety it can get.

Errr... I certainly hope that is just a title for discussion and not an actual statement of fact because it is undoubtedly wrong. I have no idea what percentage of serial killers are transient contruction workers but I can't think of one offhand who was. I'm sure they represent their fair share of the serial killer population but it ain't 86%.

"86% of serial killers are transient construction workers."
Pah.
I happen to know that 70% of all statistics are made up on the spot, and 64% of the people that produce false statistics spend 14% of their time producing them.
