At the same time, now, 51 years later, a team of cryptography experts have finally been able to crack one of the killer’s mysterious coded messages sent to the San Francisco Chronicle in 1969. The film was made. The film was also named ‘Zodiac’. It had stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and Jack Gyllenhaal.
These four people have decoded the message
According to a CNN report, the message was dubbed as ‘340 Cypher’, as it has 340 characters. The message has been decoded by David Oranchak, a software developer in the state of Virginia, Belgian computer programmer Jarl Van Eyck and Australian mathematician Sam Blake. It took years for the team to crack the code. Web designer David Oranchak, 46, first tried to use computer programs to understand complex code in 2006.
AFP reported, it was believed that the killer would be identified after the message was decoded. But the decoding team found that the zodiac killer in the message boasted about law enforcement officers without giving any clue.
What did the killer say in the message
The killer’s message is written in capital letters and without any punctuation. In his message the murderer wrote, ‘I hope you guys are having a lot of fun trying to catch me, I have no fear of the gas chamber, because it will send me to heaven even more and I have myself There are now enough slaves to get the work done.
This was not the first message Zodiac Killer sent to newspapers in California during his horror days. In 1969, a school teacher and his wife were largely successful in decoding similar messages.
In this message, the killer said, “I like to kill because it’s so funny.” In this message also there was talk of ‘Das’, which has been claimed that the murderer believes that he is collecting the slave to serve him for the life after death.
