The Zodiac Killer’s most unbreakable code has been broken by an international 3 man team consisting of David Oranchak (American computer programmer), Belgian computer programmer Jarl Van Eycke (Belgian computer programmer) and Sam Blake (Australian mathematician). After countless hours and hundreds of thousands of computer simulations the team discovered an error in the Zodiac Killer’s transcription which led to them breaking the code. The FBI has agreed with their solution and confirmed the code’s message.
The video below explains the process used to crack the code and is well worth watching.
On December 3rd, 2020, an international three-person team of codebreakers made a breakthrough with the Zodiac Killer’s unsolved 340-character cipher.
By December 5th, the team finished cracking the cipher and sent the solution to the FBI.
This is the full message from the Zodiac Killer that was hidden in the 340-character cipher for 51 years:
I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING LOTS OF FUN IN TRYING TO CATCH ME
THAT WASNT ME ON THE TV SHOW
WHICH BRINGS UP A POINT ABOUT ME
I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE GAS CHAMBER
BECAUSE IT WILL SEND ME TO PARADICE ALL THE SOONER
BECAUSE I NOW HAVE ENOUGH SLAVES TO WORK FOR ME
WHERE EVERYONE ELSE HAS NOTHING WHEN THEY REACH PARADICE
SO THEY ARE AFRAID OF DEATH
I AM NOT AFRAID BECAUSE I KNOW THAT MY NEW LIFE IS
LIFE WILL BE AN EASY ONE IN PARADICE DEATH
The members of the team that cracked the code are:
* Sam Blake (Australia)
* Jarl Van Eycke (Belgium)
* David Oranchak (USA)
This video is my attempt to tell the story of this long overdue breakthrough. More details are reported in Michael Butterfield’s article here: http://zodiackillerfacts.com/news-and…
