Hello from Georgia

Post by Matthew Mayer on August 8th 2015, 9:15 pm

My name is Matthew, or call me Matt if you'd like. I was just a small child when the Zodiac killing happened, but it is something I remembered my folks talking about a great deal throughout the 70's. I left San Francisco after High School (1985) to pursue my dream of playing in a Blues band. I set out for Austin, TX where I started my first group and that lasted 8 years and then I ended up in Atlanta, GA in 1993. I have lived in Atlanta ever since, but I have been all over the world playing guitar, bass and drums for a number of great bands/artists. The dream of having my own band was put on hold when I took a job as a roadie with a semi-famous group and was later asked to fill in on bass for their following tour. Life has been a little crazy but I have learned a lot and met many different types of people in my travels.

In my down time I spend most of my time reading about serial killers. I am not married and have no children. In the late 90's while on tour, I became friends with a roadie, an older gentleman, who knew a great deal about the Zodiac case. I knew a little bit myself so we struck up a friendship and would discuss the case quite often. It has always interested me. I recently retired and now have a lot of free time on my hands so I have come to give my opinions on the case, for what they are worth. I also have a POI here in Atlanta that I will discuss at a later time. I have some neat coincidental stuff on the guy, but nothing solid as of yet. My POI (born in 1929) was a writer, poet, photographer, film director, actor, musician, surfer, journalist and dabbled in real estate. He very good friends with film maker and Church Of Satan member Ken Anger, Anton LeVay, S.F. Chronicle columnist Marc Spinelli (Count Marco), poet Neal Cassady, poet/writer Kenneth Rexroth, surfer Bunker Spreckels, photographer Spyder Wills and a couple members of the Manson family. He was also friends with some legendary rock groups such as The Grateful Dead, Blue Cheer and Jefferson Airplane. He may have also been a roadie at one time for Creedence Clearwater Revival, although I have not been able to verify that yet.

So anyways, I look forward to interacting with everyone here and at some point I will unveil my POI. Good day to you all.

Matthew

PS in time I will learn about all of the different suspects. I am familiar with the main ones - Allen, Gaikowski, Kaczynski etc., but I want to learn about all of them. I especially want to learn more about any suspects with ties to Atlanta.

There was a letter (maybe two, I forget now) that was from somewhere in Georgia that some people believe was Zodiac.

The FBI had a letter (or letters?) that were signed as "Zodiac" and they claimed responsibility for some Atlanta child murders.

Matthew, check this out.

A little more than halfway down the page, Ben Van Meter tells a story about an encounter he had with Kenneth Anger. Pretty interesting.

Update on my suspect. I have been talking with an FBI agent about getting some DNA tests and fingerprint and handwriting tests done. I have given him writing examples from my suspect and his prints are on file as he has a fairly long rap arrest record and has two felony convictions. He spent 3 years in prison from 1954-1957 and then another year in 1960-1961.

The FBI agent I am working with is actually a very good friend of mine and has been since the 1980's. He contacted me yesterday and said the wheels are in motion for getting this guy properly looked at. I will post any updates as I get them.

No. This man is still alive and I don't want to post his name or any information on him until he has passed away. He is in very poor health from what I understand so it might not be long.

Sweet! Progress is always good regardless of the outcome. Do you have a photo of the guy that you could PM me?
