This new investigative group who has taken the liberty of saying they have positively “ID” -ed the real Zodiac Killer is completely wrong.
How do I know? Because first of all I know the face of the real Zodiac Killer, and Gary Poste is not the man.
Secondly, the facts are all wrong. Just because Poste was supposedly known for killing five people in San Francisco, does not mean anything, nor does it positively ID him. The actual count was most likely quite higher than five. It was only five that were documented. The real count was probably 39 or so according to the Zodiac himself in commenting to newspapers and police in a series of cryptic notes.
I know the face. It was one of those experiences that seals images in the mind like a branding iron. The real Zodiac bears a very strong resemblance to the right side of the now famous historic police wanted poster. It was further corrected by eye-witnesses to reshape the size, outline, and character of the face with almost a square chin, a key facial ID characteristic.
