The Zodiac killer in my opinion is one of the most skilled killer in such a way which no one to this day have caught him in the act and neither after the crime, also the crazy thing is that he had no reason to kill besides him just trying to mess with the police and or just getting his encrypted messages out so everyone can see. Many people have tried to turn themselves in as if they were the Zodiac killer but all of the people have just lied to try and calm all the people down so they won’t be as scared to go out in the world. On the other hand if he would ever get caught if he is even still alive I feel that just like the taunted the police they should taunt him in the way they should execute him when he is captured.
