In the middle of this
communication, there are five cipher symbols followed by a large Zodiac
symbol with four smaller Zodiac symbols, one in each quadrant of the
large Zodiac symbol.
Five Cipher Symbols
The five cipher
symbols could be a name with five alphabetical symbols such as "SANDY".
However, the third
cipher symbol and the fifth cipher symbol are the same which would seem
to indicate that they are the same alphabetical symbol.
The Zodiac used four
quadrants in the communication which was postmarked October 27, 1970,
referring to four methods of murder, "by fire", "by gun", "by knife",
and "by rope", separated by a crossword arrangement of the words
"paradice" and "slaves".
includes another example of the Zodiacīs word game.
The word "trouble" is
misspelled as "troulbe".
The word "troulbe" is
a combination of the word "troul" and the word "be".
The word "troul" is
derived from the Dutch word "trollen" meaning "to move volubly" or "to
knife of Zodiac
The Zodiac had
written "by knife" on the door of the Kharmann Ghia at Lake Berryessa
on September 27, 1969.
The police decided to
keep the Zodiacīs phrase "by knife" confidential in 1969 because
sometimes the police withheld certain information from the public which
only the Zodiac would know.
The phrase "by knife"
was covered up in the photographs of the car door which were released
to the media after the stabbings.
"The California Crime
Book" by Robert Colby was the first book which included information
about the Zodiac in the chapter called "Horror-scope For Murder (The
This book was
published by Pyramid Books in September, 1971.
On page 183 of this
book, when describing what was written on the car door, it states that
next to the Zodiac symbol was printed "Vallejo", "Dec. 20, 1968", "July
4, 1969" and "Sept. 27, 1969 - 6:30 p.m.". However, this account does
not have any reference to the specific phrase "by knife".
This is an example of
how, in the contemporary time period, the public was not aware of the
use of the specific phrase "by knife" by the Zodiac on September 27,
1969. (This information was disclosed several years later.)
Whoever wrote "the
bleeding knife of Zodiac" in the communication mailed on December 16,
1969, may have known that the Zodiac had used the phrase "by knife" on
September 27, 1969, something which only the Zodiac and the
investigators knew at the time.
