An American group called “Case Breakers” announced the identity of a serial killer known as the “Zodiac Killer”, and accused the US authorities of failing to perform their duties to reveal his identity.
And the “Fox News” website, quoting the group, stated that the former Air Force soldier, Gary Francis Poste, had been identified as the Zodiac suspect, but the FBI did not move to prove the DNA, as well. group claims.
Post died in 2018, and the group’s volunteer team investigating the case says that an FBI official has confirmed that the man believed to be Zodiac is currently listed as a suspect, and the team has accused government agencies across the country of not properly investigating the alleged serial killings.
“An FBI agent told a member of our team that Gary Francis Post, an Air Force veteran, is a suspect in a database of murders,” Thomas Colbert, investigative journalist and volunteer team leader at Case Breakers, said in a press release this week. And the lab has a partial DNA sample.”
“The investigation into the Zodiac case remains open and unresolved,” the San Francisco FBI said in a statement to Fox News. “Because of the ongoing nature of the investigation, and out of respect for the victims and their families, we will not be providing further comment at this time.”
“The criminal has been secretly listed as the suspect in headquarters computers, since 2016, with his partial DNA sample secured at Quantico, Virginia,” the group said in its statement.
The FBI has consistently rejected reports and conclusions that the case is resolved, and told Fox News, in October 2021, that the case remains open.
The Zodiac is believed to be responsible for at least five murders that took place between 1968 and 1969 in the San Francisco area. Unlike most serial killers, the Zodiac taunted the authorities with complex codes in letters sent to newspapers and law enforcement.
As a result of these crimes, books, films, and documentaries appeared in subsequent years, and investigators and professionals scrutinized the case in an attempt to uncover the killer, to no avail.
Case Breakers hopes that law enforcement agencies will compare their DNA sample with DNA samples from a crime scene in California, to help victims’ families get answers about the killer’s identity.
