Number Theory Linking Zodiac Murder Dates

Number Theory Linking Zodiac Murder Dates

Postby akwilks on Thu Jun 24, 2010 3:29 pm

Credit goes to the oft brilliant Mr. Kite for first coming up with this idea.

I took his idea and expanded and found further examples, just as Quagmire and Bentley have now done.

Basically, if you take the numbers for ALL of the confirmed Zodiac murders, add up the numbers for the month, day and year, they add up to numbers divisible by 5 and forming a pattern from 80 to 105.

This is interesting, if only because it defies logic and laws of probability that ALL the confirmed Zodiac murders and at least four suspected ones should match up in this mathematical way. The matches so far are:

Jensen/Faraday (12/20/68) = 12 + 20 + 68 = 100

Ferrin/Mageau (7/4/69) = 7 + 4 + 69 = 80

Hartnell/Sheperd (9/27/69) = 9 + 27 + 69 = 105

Stine (10/11/69) = 10 + 11 + 69 = 90

Johns (3/22/70) = 3 + 22 + 70 = 95

Radetich (6/19/70) = 6 + 19 + 70 = 95

Lass (9/6/70) = 9 + 6 + 70 = 85

Webster (11/28/69) = 11 + 28 + 81 = 120

Let us leave out Webster as that one is the most speculative at this point.

The number theory is present for ALL FOUR CONFIRMED ZODIAC CRIMES FROM DECEMBER 1968 UNTIL OCTOBER 1969.

It is also present for the next three major possible cases were Zodiac claimed or hinted at credit - Johns, Radetich and Lass.

Jensen/Faraday (12/20/68) = 12 + 20 + 68 = 100

Ferrin/Mageau (7/4/69) = 7 + 4 + 69 = 80

Hartnell/Sheperd (9/27/69) = 9 + 27 + 69 = 105

Stine (10/11/69) = 10 + 11 + 69 = 90

Johns (3/22/70) = 3 + 22 + 70 = 95

Radetich (6/19/70) = 6 + 19 + 70 = 95

Lass (9/6/70) = 9 + 6 + 70 = 85

Looking at the numbers we have:

80 85 90 95 95 100 105

That is a very clear pattern - starts at 80 and has increments of 5, up to 105.

Now lets get a little more speculative and expansive, and include the possible Zodiac murders of Leona Roberts and Joan Webster, the bomb on Flight 444 (Zodiac mentioned a Flight 555 and this act was done by Kaczynski) and crimes of the VR/EAR/ONS (thought by police to probably be different names for the same criminal).

Jensen/Faraday (12/20/68) = 12 + 20 + 68 = 100

Ferrin/Mageau (7/4/69) = 7 + 4 + 69 = 80

Hartnell/Sheperd (9/27/69) = 9 + 27 + 69 = 105

Paul Stine (10/11/69) = 10 + 11 + 69 = 90

Leona Roberts (11/10/69) = 11 + 10 + 69 = 90

Kathleen Johns (3/22/70) = 3 + 22 + 70 = 95

Officer Radetich (6/19/70) = 6 + 19 + 70 = 95

Donna Lass (9/6/70) = 9 + 6 + 70 = 85

VR Professor Snelling (9/11/75) = 9 + 11 + 75 = 95

ONS Mr. and Mrs. "H" (10/1/79) = 10 + 1 + 79 = 90

Flight 444 (11/15/79) = 11 + 15 + 79 = 105

ONS Domingo/Sanchez (7/27/81) 7 + 27 + 81 = 115

Joan Webster (11/28/81) = 11 + 28 + 81 = 120

ONS Janelle Cruz (5/4/86) = 95

Looking at the numbers now we have:

80 85 90 90 90 95 95 95 95 100 105 105 115 120

This is from Bentley:

The 4 confirmed crimes occurred on a Friday or Saturday. Here is the 1969 Calendar with the Friday and Saturday dates that are divisible by 5 in red. Surprisingly more than I would have thought. 104 combined Friday and Saturdays, 18 divisible by 5. Feel free to double check my work, had a long day in the sun. And yes, I know LHR was 1968...

Bentley - Excellent analysis. If we accept that Zodiac favors weekends, then if out of the weekend dates of 104 ONLY 18 are divisible by 5, that comes out to only 17%!

That is a 17% chance each time - meaning by pure chance Zodiac had a 17% chance of killing on a weekend day divisible by 5. That is about 1 out 6.

A 1 out of 6 chance...and for the four confirmed Zodiac crimes, he hit it four times in a row.

Add the next three crimes Zodiac claimed or hinted at credit for, and he went 7 for 7.

So it turns out my dice analogy was correct.

Can anyone figure out the odds of rolling a "1" four times in a row?

And the odds of rolling a "1" seven times in a row?

I think the odds say this was deliberate by Zodiac.

Bentley if your math ideas are correct - and I think they are -

The odds for all four Zodiac attacks happening on the math pattern date = 1 in 1296

For the 5th attack to happen in the pattern (Johns) = 1 in 7776

For the 6th attack to happen in the pattern (Radetich) = 1 in 46656

For the 7th attack to happen in the pattern (Lass) = 1 in 279,936

The numbers speak for themselves.

Some of Ted's later actions, like the 11/15/79 airplane bomb and a 5/15/85 attack, fit the pattern, but most do not, or it cannot be determined, because it some cases bombs exploded days after they were set, but we don't know how many days, or if we count when a mail bomb was mailed, when it was postmarked, when it arrived or when it was opened and exploded.

Webster murder fits, as do four VR/EAR/ONS attacks - the first two and the last two, none in between.

But starting in 1968 for all seven known and suspected Zodiac attacks to fit the pattern is incredible and beyond statistical chance.

What exactly it means, I don't know, other than Zodiac had an interest in numbers, math and patterns.

Do these numbers mean anything? Or the numbers 80 through 120?

The number theory appears valid from December 20, 1968 until November 28, 1981. After that it is hit and miss, more miss, so the hits don't stand out as unlikely probability wise.

This is the pattern of crimes that appear to be linked by the murder dates number theory:

Jensen/Faraday (12/20/68) = 12 + 20 + 68 = 100

Ferrin/Mageau (7/4/69) = 7 + 4 + 69 = 80

Hartnell/Sheperd (9/27/69) = 9 + 27 + 69 = 105

Paul Stine (10/11/69) = 10 + 11 + 69 = 90

Leona Roberts (11/10/69) = 11 + 10 + 69 = 90

Kathleen Johns (3/22/70) = 3 + 22 + 70 = 95

Officer Radetich (6/19/70) = 6 + 19 + 70 = 95

Donna Lass (9/6/70) = 9 + 6 + 70 = 85

VR Professor Snelling (9/11/75) = 9 + 11 + 75 = 95

ONS Mr. and Mrs. "H" (10/1/79) = 10 + 1 + 79 = 90

Flight 444 (11/15/79) = 11 + 15 + 79 = 105

ONS Domingo/Sanchez (7/27/81) 7 + 27 + 81 = 115

Joan Webster (11/28/81) = 11 + 28 + 81 = 120

AK and everyone. In my opinion and analysis, Zodiac claimed or otherwise hinted that he acted on EIGHT different dates. So, in other words, if I'm not mistaken, I'm adding one day to the theory. So the SEVEN already listed are: 12/20/68, 7/4/69, 9/27/69 10/11/69. The commonly accepted FOUR adding up to 100,80,105,90. And the THREE others: 3/22/70, 6/19/70, 9/6/70. Zodiac claimed or otherwise seemed to hint about these 3 dates, adding up to 95,95,85. But, I believe, as do others I would assume, that Zodiac tried to claim or hint or otherwise allude to the AUGUST 3, 1969 date when he claimed 7 murders and not 5. So, in my opinion, 8/3/69 fits the theory, and it adds up to 80. That is quite amazing. The four accepted dates and the four arguably alluded at dates add up to (in order): 100,80,80,105,90,95,95,85. Wow, can that really be just a coincidence? And you don't have to accept that Zodiac is responsible for all of those dates, only that he may have tried to take credit for them. The theory only needs to be that Zodiac wanted to act on dates or take credit for dates that fell in line with his zeroes and fives number game. This theory also, in my opinion, matches up with the 340 theory that has (PTEK BARS LEASH) in a column and then on another column has (TAKE LOSE). The idea there is that it's a Manifesto style lecture that society is KEPT in BARS, and on a LEASH. The other column is the cure: TAKE away the bars, LOSE the leash. Why is this theory a match to the numbers theory? Because the lecture is on column FIVE and the cure is on Column TEN. I think we should look for more FIVE and TEN patterns. Are there any Zodiac alluded to dates that haven't been brought up yet? Is the killers choice of name,The Zodiac, meaningful here in that it perhaps matches up with astrology and patterns in numbers and that sort of thing?

Interesting thoughts.

Debra Furlong and Kathie Snoozy were brutally murdered in a SF Bay area park on August 3, 1969. Or 8/3/69, which means 8 + 3 + 69 = 80. Which fits this pattern. In a letter Zodiac claimed credit for "7" victims and included Dec (Jensen/Faraday), July (Ferrin), Sept (Shepherd), Oct (Stine) and Aug (???). Some speculated if Zodiac was hinting at credit for the Furlong/Snoozy murder, which would account for 7 victims and the "Aug".

Two years later another women was killed in the park and Karl Werner, a mentally disturbed young man, pled guilty to that murder and Furlong/Snoozy.

Did Zodiac really kill Furlong and Snoozy? Or seeing a murder that fit his pattern, did he lie and hint at credit for it to confuse detectives?

AK = You can see the Zodiac 340 Code proposed solution below, largely based on what was in the 1979 FBI file. Certain words have been spotted by Kite and myself and circled.

You can see the column 5 has an anagram for KEPT and then BARS and LEASH, while column 10 has TAKE and LOSE.
