4/21/2018--- I found the card that zodiac got his idea from. I am not going to post it...yet....but it has something on it hand drawn that zodiac also hand drew on something he made and it is exact in everyway. It is not a zodiac symbol. ..This card was created by the most famous cryptographer in American history.

The link www.zodiackillerenigma.com may be changing in the future. I am going to be posting alternative links. All will bring you to the same place. When I first created this page I wasan't thinking about links and domain names and I created a domain that was hard to remember. So rather than creating a whole new site and moving everything I created these to make the site easier to find and easier to remember. The domain www.zodiackillerenigma.com may be changing in the future. I am not sure yet but any of the links listed above will bring you to this site. For now the address below will work but if a time comes when it doesn't remember one of the other addresses listed above.
Do not use this domain any more
I have a dozen web addresses for experimental reasons but I am looking for something more permanent. I have some posted above but the addresses below should always work even if something happens to me they will always be here. Isuggesst using www.zodiackillerenigma.blogspot.com because it is easy to remember and will always be here
or using www.zodiackillerenigma.co,nr.
The change will cause chaos for a little while but after about a year all of it will work itself out.
I am always working on this site. I want something that will always be here even if I am not.

Here is a short preview to get you started.I hope it gets you curious to read more. I don't think the 340 cipher is a cipher.I think it is a grid.. A grid that can be used with the Phillips 66 map sent by the Zodiac killer to reveal hidden locations and the Radians he mentioned that we should look for in his letters. This page explains everything in the best detail I could supply. The 340 could still have more hidden secrets in fact I would bet on it and I am still looking for them, I Hope you enjoy this. If you do give me a like or a +1. For you beginners more will be explained.
The Zodiac 340 Map overlay
A hidden message can be found in the 340. Here is the message I found hidden in the 340. To see how I found this and what the context of the message means you will have to read sections 1 though 8 and the murder of Susan Nason. I start the animation by proving the scale of the documents. I still think the 340 holds more secrets.
This doesn't mean that the 340 still couldn't have more hidden secrets or messages, but you will see more on all of this. These are here in an effort to get you curious and hopefully read more.
Here is a preview of one of the bomb drawings matching the map when the timer and compass are aligned and overlayed. This is called "MASKING" or visual cryptography. Map overlaying is a veru common thing and and to this very day even some of the map apps you use on your phone have overlaying options. I started it by putting the proof of scale of each document side by side. In my opinion this is the most important discovery I made and one that people pay the least amount of atterntion to. It proves Zodiac was using overlay. He even had to use a grid overlay just to create the 340 code. It marks a couple of locations but more importantly it marks a section of highway witrh a string of bomb. While I do not think there are bombs on this section of highway I do wonder what the imprtance of it is. You will find out what I could find out so far.
These are just a previews to what I have found. That is basically the short and skinny of it all. Does any of that look complicated? You just put one thing over the other ...you "COUPLE" then to make one. Nothing complicated about it. What it all means could be open to interpretation. I have done my best to show what I think it all means but I could have missed things or even interpreted it wrong. The rest of my site is dedicated to trying to understand it all and prove what I have found. That being said you might see something different or find something I missed. What is important is that I have proved overlaying masking plays a role in these codes. To find out what I know you will just have to read my articles and if you see something important I missed please inform me. If I think is is valid I will post it and credit you with the find. I am just one man, but together anything is possible. I don't know it all. I don't know everything. My hope is that this will be seen by eyes who can help or know things I do not, or that someone wil have that spark of inspiration and see something I didn't.
What you have just seen in the cryptography world is called overlay masking ,and it has been used for a very long time. It was very popular in the American Revolutionary War and even in times much much older. I show some examples in the different sections below. I even have one example that was used in the American Civil War. It is a type of visual cryptography. One of my missions is to find the best and many different examples of known Masking codes and overlay uses to illustrate how and why these were used and that is was an actual real thing. I was taught about this stuff when I was a kid in elementary school.I hope to find the text book in the future I first learned about it from. I may even run across where Zodiac learned about it, though I suspect he may have learned it in the same way I did. Below is an example of overlaying two images to reveal a message. The type of overlay is really only limited by the creators imagination. It also shows is was an actual thing. What makes an overlay so great is that it can not be solved unless you have all of the pieces. I am sure most of you have seen something similar to the example below when you were kids with toys in a happy meal , magic tricks, or something of that nature. I know I have.
This is just here to make you think.
Just a Word
I have never tried to make or explain anything like this before. I worry about that because I am not a writer. When I first started this I didn't think it was going to be so much work. Now I realize I will never truly be finished. Sometimes I worry if I did a good job or if people will take something I said the wrong way and judge me harshly. I also worry I might take something someone else says the wrong way. I worry I might say the wrong thing. I try to paint a picture with my words, but sometimes I struggle in putting them down the right way. So I made lots of pictures and animated examples. It is easier for me to show you than it is to explain it I worry sometimes that maybe I threw too much out there at once , but I just put it down as it came to me. From time to time I will keep working on this. Writing, rewording, and organization. In the future I hope to do a smaller posts that just shows the process. I have a new video for that , but I am afraid to put it up. I worry that I bother people with this and I apologize if I did aggravate anyone. I guess sometimes I worry too much. Even though I worry about these things, I am still 100 percent confident in my work. When I first did this people said ,"he is not showing his process and work .He didn't show the scale and its seems to simple". Then I redid everything showing every little detail and explanation. Then the same people said, "It seems to complicated and confusing. It is way to complicated to have any validity and looks forced together". Then I realized I am not going to please those people no matter what I do so I am not going to try. I have posts with all the details and I have simple posts. So if someone gets confused you can look at a simple post "which you saw above" and if someone wants more detail, proof, and explanation I have that also. As you have seen above there is nothing complicated to it. You just put two documnets over each other to create one. I also show examples of this very same thing being done in history. When I first started this there was not a lot on the subject on the internet. There was some but not alot. Now more is being added everyday all over the world. You will see a lot more about it as you read. I am just doing this to show the people that want to see but I do hope you enjoy it and find it interesting. I also hope others use this and do work of thier own. You might see something different than what I saw and I am only one man. I can only do so much. While I don't really want a lot of attention for msyelf I do want what I have done to get attention. I want people to read it and if they see something different in it than what I saw or see something I didn't see ..then go for it. It wouold be nice though if you gave me a mention and remember where it all started. I was conflicted at first on whether I should share this or not because I have seen the way others have been attacked. In the end I decided it does no one any good if I keep it to myself and if someone doesn't agree then they don't have to read it. It would have bothered me more if I had done nothing. If you disagree with one part that doesn't mean you shouldn't pay attention to other parts. I am just a guy...a person like you. There is nothing special about me. I can make mistakes just like anyone else. That doesn't mean you shouldn't pay attention to what I have done. I hope some enjoy just reading it while I honeslty hope it helps others solve the mystery. Along with my work I have restored and colorized a lot of the old photos...including crime scene and autopsy photos so be warned. I don't think it is in bad taste. I think it helps to remind people this was a real thing...it happened ..and when they see the photos they know it. It also helped me to examine them in every detail for clues. Richard Grinell of Zodiac ciphers . com also helped with that project. Again if someone does not like that they do not have to look at them. If you look at them it is because you want to and not because someone made you. Some of them are very graphic and again it reminds people of the reality of it when they see it in color.
I researched the Zodiac Codes and letters for a few years. Then I made some discoveries and decided to move my work online to share it with others. Think of this as my online notebook. Over time it keeps growing as I do more research and make more discoveries. I believe I have made some important breakthroughs in the codes and made some important discoveries. This page was the main body of work , but as it grew I was forced to break the main body down into 8 sections which are listed below and turn this into a main title page or site map. There is a lot of information and animations here and I am very good at what I do. Breaking it down makes it easier for anyone who wants to read them and to load the pages. It also makes it easier for me to update specific sections as I make more discovieries (and I do all the time). Below are the 8 main important sections. There are other posts that are based from information in these sections. As time goes by and I do more research this will continue to grow. Here are the first main important sections. Click on the links below to read each section. Each section is linked with the section that follows at the end of each page.
Sections 1 through 8
1. Section 1.... Intro To the Zodiac Killer Codes
2. Section 2 ....... The Clues
3. Section 3...The 340 Code, Map,and Bomb Schematic Overlays or How To Find The Radians
.4 Section 4.... The 340 Hidden Message and Susan Nasonl
5. Section 5... The 32 Symbol Map Code and JKF Wrote
6. Section 6..... The Excorcist Letter Puzzle
7. Section 7 ... The possible JKF patternl
8. Section 8.... My Name Is Connect the Dots
The links above are the first things you should read and read them all to understand everything. Below are more posts and more research I am doing based on all of this
I am going to Mark the Radians and Label the Inches
I am working on it right now
Here is a short video of Zodiac related images I turned from black and white to color.
This is a small video file. I have one of netter quality I will put up later , but it is a much larger file.
Pay attention to the "4-teen" and "Boo"
The Map code involves Radians..........
Break down and Transpositions of the 340 cipher
I have been doing transpositions of the 340 cipher by the numbered quadrants 0,1,2,3 looking for a hidden message or an order for an actual substitution cipher. To help me I have a few programs and one special program given to me by someone who used it to create a 340 solving app for andoid. He wrote the program specifically for that but.... you can transpose the 340 with a transposition tool/program then enter the image into this program he made. Then with just a few minutes work you can use this image in this program and try to solve it. It saves me a lot of work by not having to do it with pen and paper. I also habe the peek a boo tool to enter these transpositions into to look for patterns. It is a little more work but well worth it. It will take some time to list the most probably transpositions and enter them all into these programs. As I do I want to post the programs and files for download so I never lose them and so that others can try to solve these transpositions if they so choose. In the end all my work will turn into a fun game. I have asked others with similar tools to expand them so I can do this same thing. You will find a link to one further down this page. It will either work or it won't . Either way I will either solve it that way or find out that there is nothing there. It os a possible question I have had for a while and now I will find out the answer to it. I also break down the 340 in this post (that means listing symbols, symbol counts, etc....,) I have a few programs to help me out with this project. You just have to know how to use them to your advantage and I thank the creators of all of these tools. I wish I had your talent. .....maybe one day

The Scale of the Letters and Measurements
I am working on this project for future experiments. I believe the eyes on the Halloween Card could be an overlay mask for finding a hidden message. Overlaying in cryptography is called "Masking". Note on the Halloween Card the skeleton is wearing a mask over his eyes. I believe that to be a clue left by the Zodiac.

4/24/2018 - 1967 Army training video showing map overlays, grid, and prepared overlays. Also shows marking with dots and other symbols.
The Video below is something all Zodiac investigators should acquaint themselves with. It is a 1966 basic military map reading training video. It shows you things like the difference between magnetic north, true north, and grid north among other things. Why is this important? Well.......one of the things Zodiac sent that involves his codes was a map with the words, "is to be set to magnetic north" written in the corner of it above a compass.

9/21/2015- I just watched a movie made in 1988 called Bat 21. Itis a fictional story that is set in Vietnam. While the movie itself is fictional the way they used map overlays in Vietnam is based in fact. I laughed when the mp overlay and secret code they used with the map overlay in the movie was all based on golf and golf courses. It makes me wonder where they got the idea from for the film. Map overlays were commonly used in the military. I talk more about this in my posts.
- a few hours later- Actually someone just informed that Bat 21 was not a fictional story and that the whole thing is based on true events that actually happened in the Vietnam War. Well..that makes it very very interesting indeed. The man behind it was named Iceal Hamilton, who went by the cal sign Bat 21. He was an Intelligence officer who was shot down behind enemy lines. I Eventually I will find out more about this.

A have found a lot of things in the zodiac codes and letters that points to Masons or at least symbols and such used by them. I think as clues but where he got his influence from I don't know. Maybe he was a Mason maybe he wasn't. The whole society of Masons is built around King Solomon and his temple. In the initiation ceremony they all dress up and you act out the murder of Hiram who was stabbed and bludgeoned for the word of the master mason. On the very first page of the Holt comic it says , " legend has it this wheel was built for King Solomon". I never expected that.

This section is a collection of material that may show various things I have seen and used in my life growing up that has a relation the to things I have seen from the zodiac killer. It is also a useful collection of facts that may be relative to this investigation .....and also is it just some very cool stuff that shows the difference between people in 1969 (when kids actually had to use their imagination) and now. I will show sources on
mask making that resemble the mask zodiac wore at lake Berryessa
Creating messages by tearing words and letters out of magazines
(now that I think about it some of these books were more like instruction manuals for serial killers than learning tools for kids lol )
and lots of other various things that zodiac displayed an interest in.
A lot of this will come from a collection of 15 books printed in the 60's that came with World Encyclopedias that I had as a child. Things I have seen throughout my life that are like the things Zodiac did and made. One I want to find in particular is a second grade reading book we used at Caney Elementary School in the 1980's. I think the books were from the 60's or 70's. It gave instructions on how to making an overlay code but drawing boxes, hiding them in a picture , making a secret message in relation to those boxes then writing a false letter around your secret message. This is actually a known way of sending secret messages that you can google but I want that book to shows the exact instructions were printed in a text book for children. I was taught this in the second grade. Also when I was in that school I saw teachers using projectors to do things like how I believe Zodiac made his codes. I made an overlay box to demonstrate this. For now all I can do in accumulate information and list it. That being said I think you will find a lot of what I post very cool and interesting.
I have a lot to post on this and it will take a while to do it all.
Zodiac Killer 340 Cipher Web Toy
If you want to try to crack the 340 as a regular substitution cipher
then try this out. I love this tool. I wish this guy would make a version
of this that would let you transpose it first according to different orders or patterns
and then apply this same approach. I wish I was smart enough to do it myself. If you
want to check it out then click the link below. I Hope he sees my request and does it. lol
I would like to try different transpositions based on the 4 numbered quadrants.
I am going to try to get a couple of people to do this but in the off chance you do read this Mr. Oranchak ( I know I could just ask you but I don't like bugging people). Just for fun.. make a version of this that you can transpose in different patterns and maybe try more than one key on but I am most interested in the transposing. I have thought about this for a long time and the easiest way I can think to do it would be to make a blank 340 grid that you could then click,drag, and map the 340 back onto then apply the substitution cipher aspect of your app to this remapping. That way you could try any different possible pattern. You never know til you try and you can't say it isn't worth trying.
Here is another tool that is very useful that Mr. Oranchak created that I will be using from time to time. I especially like the example he created here. ;)
The link below will take you to a page that explains the tool
This link will take you directly to the tool
I really like guys like David Oranchak, Marcelo Leandro, Richard Grinell, Dmitry, and I could go on and on. After doing this for a while I have see how everyone helping each other and sometimes even working as a group with some people , making programs, tools, charts, fonts, etc....., sharing ideas and things and helping each other with their work, it just makes me realize how we all help each other and its things like this.. I wish I could find the right words. I just want to thank David and everyone else for the things things they do. People don't realize that the people doing these sites , writing all this stuff, sharing their discoveries, ...it's really a thankless job and not not really any personal monetary gain is gained from it. So you really should thank these guys for what they do. They don't have to do it and share it with the world but they do. Even old Tom Voight and Micheal Butterfield. Guys like Richard Grinell, Marcelo Leandro, Chad Ophion, The dude that runs www.zodiackillersite.com and many more . I wish I could list them all. Moat of them have encouraging to me. They do this stuff and they don't get any thing from it. More often than not people give harsh words much less a thank you for the work they did and it is hard work that they gain little from little from their efforts. They do it for you.

If you want to know what kind of guy I think the Zodiac was.. Look up a man named George Trepal. He was a member of Mensa who tried to kill his neighbors and did kill one of them for no better reason than they were making too much noise......The same guy that caught Ted Bundy worked on his case. That is just my opinion and it is just an opinion. Funny thing though.. That investigator said when he was working on that case he was reminded of something Ted Bundy told him . "once you cross that line it is easier to do it the next time". When police arrested old George in his new home ....they found something in the basement that resembled a torture chamber. .. . Just to be clear I am not saying it was George Trepal. There are some who like to put words in someone's mouth. I am just saying I think they have a lot in common. It is just one of many possibilities and just an opinion.
Here is a little challenge I posted at the end of section 8. I just thought of something. Section 8 is a military term for people who are.....crazy..lol.. just a joke.. Here is my challenge. I made this to show how someone might make a brain teaser like the My Name Is cipher. This one should actually be pretty easy. I left at least half a dozen clues and it is in the correct order. I did not mix it up.. but if I were a serial killer who made the code using the letters of my name then I probably would have mixed it up. It is also kind of a double code in that sense. You will see what I mean when you solve it . Some can probably solve it without even trying to decode it just based on the two main hints I left. So for you people who like puzzles, codes, and brain teaser ..here you go. Have fun with it.
Nothing Zodiac related. This is a song and video made by some guys from where I live and I suppport anything by anyone local...the fact that it is pretty kick ass doesn't hurt either.. check it out.. Frankenstein by Stitch Rivet.
