The movie is based off not just the actual case, but Robert Graysmith's book as well. Robert Graysmith was positive that The Zodiac was Arthur Leigh Allen. That's the reason for why they went with the idea of a man over 30. I have also seen where Robert Graysmith has been accused of stretching the truth in his book.

He was toying with them and I don't recall it ever mentioning the school bus threat was because of a movie. I am little lost on what you're saying.

They make the point that the San Francisco serial-killer in "Dirty Harry" was a trendy-popular wish-fulfillment of finally catching the Zodiac, which he trolls up no end in his letters. I was just quoting various bits that most sounded like SilverSongwriter.

Ah I see. I need to see Dirty Harry. May I ask why you needed to sound like SilverSongWriter? There was really no reason to. Even if they guy is a troll and annoys you, there is no reason to mention him on a thread about Unsolved Mysteries. If you hate the guy that much shouldn't you just simply ignore him and pretend like he doesn't even exist?


Well back on topic of Unsolved Mysteries. I think the greatest is the cases of the missing sock. Your doing your laundry and your clothes finish drying....nothing out of the ordinary,right? You go to fold your newly dried clean clothes and...what's this a sock is missing his buddy. Your breathing intensifies and your palms become sweaty. You start frantically searching for the other sock, but you are unable to find it. You call the cops and report a missing sock. They laugh at you and hang up on you. You don't know what to do now. You cry a little because now you have a left over sock and it bothers you greatly. What do you do with it? Simply the greatest unsolved and most terrifying mystery ever.


Another interesting unsolved mystery is that of D.B. Cooper. Oh can't forget about The Bermuda Triangle, Easter Island Heads, and Stonehenge.

Hmm isn't the Viscilla Axe Murders an unsolved mystery? Also isn't the Borden Murders a unsolved mystery too? I know Lizzie Borden is accused of the killing of Mr. and Mrs. Borden, but I can't recall if they 100% confirmed her of the crime. .

Some really good mysteries there. I have a feeling they'll never explain The Bermuda Triangle planes/ships gone missing, the mystery of Roanoke/Easter Island's Giant Heads/Disappearances, or that dang sock. I do have my theories on the sock involving sock goblins but that's just a theory .

Oh, and Lizzie was officially cleared a few years back but I think the real culprit wasn't discovered, just scientifically that she couldn't have committed the crimes.

I thrive on stuff like this. I even visited the hotel that Elisa Lam died in. I bought and read Koji Suzuki's Dark Water and also watched the Japanese movie of the same name.

I don't think this was an unsolved mystery, though. She had a history of mental illness and it was discovered that she wasn't taking her meds. It's creepy also that the elevator remained open by itself for so long but I'm more eager to blame it on the terrible maintenance of many hotel elevators than on the supernatural. It's fun to think about the supernatural but I don't usually conclude that evil spirits are the final answer.

Back when I was younger and my grandma was still alive me and her would always watch Unsolved Mysteries together. So I've picked up on quite a few good ones.

I can't recall the specific location, but if memory serves correct it's some states in America. There are cases of people who hear this buzzing sound. There seems to be no scientific explanation for it from what I remember. To the people who suffer from the mysterious buzz it's very aggravating and basically disrupts their life.

It gave me the chills when finding out that similar strings of murders appeared across the world (even here in the US) just a short time after the killings stopped in Whitechapel. NY, PA, TX and even other countries such as South Africa, Nicaragua and Germany had similar strings occur. It still chills me to the bones thinking to this day no one knows who he is and we could have someone just like him living right on our block or even next door without even knowing it.

The Jack the Ripper cases really interested me too a while back. Did you know that they finally found out who he was? Just nearly about a year ago too. It was some Polish guy named Aaron Kosminski.

The funniest part of that announcement is the last paragraph where they actually dispute their own theory by saying she was a prostitute and the DNA (while a match) was only on the one shawl. He could've easily just been her last John before she died. Then again, Jack is the nickname or John after all. While the DNA is 100% match to the shawl there are many of us who still believe the fact that it's not 100% match to the killer.They extracted DNA in prior years too, this time from the actual "Dear Boss" Ripper Letters and they came as a match to a Whitechapel area painter. They extracted DNA from the envelopes and proved that Jack had to, in fact, be a Jacqueline (women's DNA on the letters). Unfortunately, unless DNA matches items found with more than one victim they can easily be explained away. The DNA from this case just one of Eddowes' Johns, the letters DNA could be from the person who gave/sold the Ripper his writing paper and the envelope DNA could've been from the person they lent/sold him a few envelopes. To this day, there's always some "specialist" trying to make his name by proving it but none has offered definitive proof linking their suspect to more than one victim,

In the U.S. you'll never hear the buzzing explained for a simple reason (corporate America doesn't want you to hear) but other countries such as Germany and Sweden outed the cause in their countries years ago. The funny part is those who wear tinfoil hats might be on the right track. It became apparent when people who had it happen started shielding their houses and had the effects go away (buzzing/humming, reddening of skin and in some cases burning of the skin). They linked the problem to an "allergy" of sorts to electromagnetic waves. Europe has actually proven and accepted it (in some countries actually declaring it a disability) but in the US they keep saying there's no way something like that could even exist.

Egads! This looks like a woman's DNA! Could it be possible that the Shropshire Slasher is a....?

While women serial killers are uncommon/rare some of the nastiest have been proven to in fact be women so anything is possible. For all we know the Ripper could've been the victims' competition clearing the field for herself in some sort of "hostile takeover" of the streets.
