[UPDATE: We know a lot more about this. Look here.]
Well, just take a look at the screaming headline adorning today’s San Francisco Examiner: “ZODIAC KILLER TO BE NAMED.” The postscript underneath goes, “Attorneys say they can prove the identity of infamous S.F. villain.” That’s a little better, but what makes this theory better than any of the others? Do we already know this theory is proven?
The location of today’s presser is curious – it’s in front of the San Francisco Chronicle Building at 901 Mission. The Chronicle, of course, has nothing to say about today’s event so far. But wait, a P.R. agency is involved, plus “Law Enforcement/Government Personalities” (yes Personalities!), and “Legal Representatives organized by members of the original Law Offices of Melvin Belli.” Well then!
Melvin Belli is always going to be your best bet if your crossword clue is “King of Torts,” but it’s not clear what the memory of his name adds to solve this case. Back in the 1990’s, Gorgan was “famed” for bumping into things with his English luxury car and also famed for not having the scratch to pay the workers at his law office. But back in 1969 he actually did interact with a suspect, so that’s something, I ‘spose.

Soon, All Will Be Revealed. Or not. We’ll see, but as far as this cheesy public relations campaign is concerned, we’re already way past Gouda and approaching Cheddar.
Zodiac Killer to Be Revealed at Press Conference
FAMILY MEMBER Of KILLER WILL DELIVER STATEMENT Of EVIDENCE
Supporting Forensic Experts, Law Enforcement/Government Personalities, and Legal Representatives organized by members of the original Law Offices of Melvin Belli will be in Attendance
SAN FRANCISCO, April 28 /PRNewswire/ — Over 40 years have passed since the first ZODIAC murder. He may have killed 36 people. There has never been conclusive evidence implicating a single individual and no one has ever come forward to identify the real killer. This has remained one of the world’s greatest unsolved crime sprees…until now. For the first time in four decades, there is new, never before seen or heard evidence of the identity of the Zodiac Killer. Through the efforts of many world renowned forensic experts under the direction of original partners of famedZodiac Killer confidant/attorney Melvin Belli, a press conference will be held this Wednesday at the San Francisco Chronicle. At the press conference, a proven immediate family member of the Zodiac Killer will make a statement identifying the killer. Attending with her will be leading forensic experts, a Melvin Belli former partner, family lawyers and others who have helped solve this case that has been open for many years. Information of the forensic evidence – including cryptology, handwriting analysis, current law enforcement investigations, and most startling, the murder accomplice evidence – will be distributed. This historical revelation upsets the theories of the murder investigations in the past. Many cold case crimes have recently been solved because of 21st century forensic technology. This is one of the bigger breakthroughs.
Recently, there has been misinformation distributed to some media outlets from a source in Sacramento which fast tracked this press conference. Over two years have been spent in forensic investigations by the nation’s best so there could be no question unanswered about the evidence to be distributed this Wednesday.
