Zodiac Killer

San Francisco Police Department [Public domain]

Zodiac Killer had struck too many times

It was up to the detectives to solve these crimes

Endless nights of no sleep

Waiting for a clue if only a peep

This went on for many, many years

Bringing families’ no closure, just tears

  2. I like this. My mind races at why the perp has been tagged as the Zodiac Killer. Is he working his way around the sun-signs: Victim 1, Aries, Victim 2, Taurus. Or is Zodiac the name of a nightclub where his victims hung out. ?

    • Thanks! The Zodiac killer was originally known as the “killer,” he later, after purchasing a Zodiac watch, began using the name and symbol as his calling card. Why? No one knows, but the original piece is quite striking and Zodiac was fairly upscale at the time.

        • LoL, I sure hope he wasn’t a libra as it would taint my sign 🙂

          • Nice one.
            Well, if he used blades, he was possibly Aries. If poison, he was most like Pisces. If he raped before killing, Scorpio; if he drowned them, then again Pisces; if in his or their home, then Cancer; he overseas in foreign lands, Sagittarius; if … yea, I shan’t say more
