My sister also died on Oct 30th but that was only 12 yrs ago.I went to the task force meeting in Riverside,Tom V asked me to take his place. We held it a day before on the 29th because some came from other states and had to be at work early Monday morning. Good thing that we did , because it was closed on the 30th, perhaps because they knew we would be there ?
The reporter from the Press Enterprise stayed with us all day and into the late evening. She spoke to everyone there , which were 10 of us. She wasn't sure when it would be in the paper,depending on what other news would happen that week.We went to the church where Cheri Jo went to that Sunday the 30th of Oct.1966. O spotted something that I missed the other times that I went there. It was the address "3680"Arlington Ave. Those same numbers of where Cheri's body was found at 3680 Terracina . Did her killer plan that? What a odd coincidence! That to me is z like because numbers and time are important to Zodiac.I went to mass on Sunday 30th at St.Catherine's where Cheri Jo and her father went 50 yrs ago that day.My niece and I lit a candle for her and said a prayer. I spoke to the priest and asked that a mass be said for her. He took my name and number to let me know if and when he hears anything. He didn't know about her murder.We believe that we found the spot where the crime took place. That part of the campus has changed, those homes were removed but now we know the location and how far the library was from where she was found.The reporter had a photographer who took a picture of a tiny Catholic Bible that was put in my car back in Sept 28th or29th 1969 along with the killing costume.I don't know if it belonged to Cheri Jo, but she is the only Catholic victim that I know of who could have been killed by Zodiac.There is one spot on it that could be blood? Did her killer let her read a prayer before he killed her? That spot on the tiny Bible looks like it was dropped straight on top of that page, from what I know of blood spatter.The Bible was made in Peoria Ill. in 1935.

The 50th anniversary is a big deal , was there anything on TV out in the Riverside area about it ?

I didn't see anything about it on TV. It seems that it is only a big deal to us and the Press Enterprise? I left messages for Cheri Jo's brother to contact me about the tiny Bible that may have been his sisters? But no response. Perhaps he didn't see the message?

Except for Z-related web sites like this one, I've neither heard nor seen any mention of this horrible tragedy and its anniversary anywhere in the media, radio, newspapers. internet. Except for sports, I watch very little TV. It seems like a natural for a "true crime"-type show, being an anniversary and so close to Halloween. Wasn't it on TV anywhere?

Yes it would be a very interesting article in my view , there is so many blaa/filler stories on local TV ,you think LA would jump all over this one which has a world wide interest even .
her story, then the tie into the Zodiac
I tried  contacting the  Riverside
Press Enterprize reporter ,twice but got no response... about my finding the items of Cheri Bates here ( south Kansas city) in 06.. , I sent the drawing of her book cover art too. that would be some what easy for them to check out ..no? maybe that riverside det. told them not to

No idea why, but always found this Memorial Video quite unsettling with it's rather creepy music, or is it simply Me?

No, you're right, it is a little creepy. Sad that the 50th anniversary of Cheri Jo's murder didn't get more coverage. Or any coverage at all for that matter.

Poor Cheri Jo Bates. I started watching the video. It was unsettling to me also and I stopped about 1/2way through it.
