Richard Gaikowski

The latest Zodiac Killer suspect being bandied about (main thread here is a little confusing as the posters are privy to information that is not fully disclosed; other threads here) was named Richard Gaikowski (for some odd reason, the name is never allowed in the postings). He had the newspaper/film/military/counterculture connections usually associated with the Zodiac Killer, and "some emotional turmoil in the 1970s". Gaikowski was also a USENET (pdf:easier to read cache here) pioneer, and you have to wonder whether he participated in internet discussions about the Zodiac Killer before his death in 2004. He is not a new suspect - his name has come up before, e. g., here - and he falls into the class of San Francisco ‘characters’ who seem to surround the story.

What is the deal with Richard Gaikowski? I knew the man until he passed on a few years back. I can't belive that Zodiac conspiracy theories have traction with ragard to him. You people have way too much time on your hands...

listen to his voice verses the the "goodbye" to the dispacter from the zodiac, its him no doubt, not to mention the sketching of the zodiac killer looks identical.

tonight's history channel presentation regarding a supposed connection between zodiac and gaikowski didnt advance the ball very far at all. the voice recordings and the sketch are not convincing. 9-30-09

Nope it sucked but I think the 340 Cipher is of Pagan Symbols and something to do with math.

its arthur leigh allen. who cares if his dna doesn't match. he could have had somebody else lick the stamps and envelopes

Yeah but the thing is who would have licked the stamps? so it goes on its just to bad this guy was on the wrong side of the law he would have made a great CIA agent or something like that very smart and still to this day no one knows who the hell it is...what a waste of a good brain.

You know after profiling this guy I think he didnt lick the stamps at all but used a sponge or something of the sort to close the envolpes because he was to smart just to lick the envolpe.

He may also have had a mental disorder called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and been scared of grems.

This figure this out people if you were on the case or got info that you are willing to share share it lets do this.

Richard is NOT the Zodiac. He was in NY on a day of one of the crimes and there is proof to back that up.

The Zodiac killer lived on the seaside right near HWY 101 and would travel that HWY to get to most of these crime scenes.The police shall never solve this case.If the police used their heads,they would surely know that his speech played the biggest part in catching him and it is out there in plain view and he is still ALIVE and out there.

Zodiac Quotes "So as you can see,the police don't much to work with"."By the way,it could be rather messy if you try to bluff me"

Suspect Quotes "As you can see,his spelling is rather poor and in some places he made errors in use of his own cipher"

There is no proof that Gaikowski was the one who mailed the letters from New York. No one mentions a post mark on the day the murders occurred. I think Gaikowski is a viable witness.

Please bring your "proof" to ZodiacKiller.com

I knew Richard Gaikowski too. There is just no way he would have done anything like that.

Richards innocent,I solved the 340 cipher and his name isn,t in it. The zodiac is about to be exposed as soon as I can get these beauricratic law enforcement or news people to get a clue that I,m not b.s.ing. I don,t know if the killer(s)(/remains to be seen how many) are still alive.I think maybe. I worked on this case for 9 months straight. But even if thier not alive tell the victim to get a lawyer as what I have definetely pinned down about them is where he (they) can be found. I can,t believe what the zodiacs did to the lives of all those many men that have been so mercilessly villified all these years. Get ahold of those surviving family members and help me put pressure on these people in the right places here in Louisiana and be discreet and if these guys are still alive they can be caught before they will know this not so clever corn pon has completely discovered thier pasts.The only way I could do this investigation was to take it on like an investment and hopefully I,ll be able to sell the rights of my dicovery of the answer to the 340 cipher with all the answers that await the authorities and the people who may purchase this story. Dumbasses don,t get slaves!!I,ve made enough waves down here they,ll know me. The F.B.I. in Louisiana says they not going to spend there money on the case. I own the documents and other item that I found on the roadside about 2003.God must want revenge prett bad to be using me the way he is.This stuff was on the curb for garbage pickup and was about to be lost forever. The documents handwritting caught my attention.The way he wrote the word "thing" I believe must have remembered it from when I saw the Zodiac movie many years ago. If its done right the arrests could be filed. Todays date is 12-04-2010.

I did the post previous comment dated december 1:20 pm December 04, 2010. The secrets that opened up as I solved the 340 cipher were mind blowing. I,ll tell all who begin to follow this that I search the cipher every day and could continue to search it for quite some time and be amazed continually. Its to bad this man didn,t try to use his talent for good. I have set up a E-mail adress at zciphersolver@aol.com but expect to continue to be very limited in the releasing of the content itself until the conditions are arranged with whoever it is that takes charge of issues such as these nowadays. Several police agencies blew me off. But in all fairness I am also not willing to just hand over the information anylonger for free but in my defense, was in the beginning. All I had was the stuff I had discovered on the street in Baton Rouge and the hard work of following up was supposed to be left up the those in charge of the states murder cases. I tried to hand it over to them early on. But that is no longer the case, as they, those policing authorities are the persons that kept blowing me off, forcing me back to get more and more to blow thier skirts up and now I,ve changed my mind. When I, as just a civillian, had to come to terms with the fact that people in authoritative positions seemed to want to let sleeping dogs lye, I was bothered. I can,t do that. The truthful event of the zodiac are coming out one way or the other. No disrespect to Robert Graysmith i,m sure he meant well. But the lite this 340 cipher shines is scary and calming in a way because it can finially be said that that last chapter on this "want to be" is over. He made the smallest of mistakes by letting just that one simple page with his actual handwriting on it go to the curb for trash and I found it of all people. It is amazing in itself that the only document with his actual handwritting to probably ever be out of his possesion I found minutes before it would have been sent to a landfill and his crimes may never have been solved. I,m claiming the intellectual property as well as the copyright inforcement as we speak. And hope that the issues can be worked out in the near future and hopefully we can write a new and final chapter on this coward. You,ll need to see his face I have. Write my E-mail and we can talk about if hes still alive or is he now on the run.

Wow, you are the classic case of an attention seeker. If you really did have concrete evidence on the zodiac, you could be charged for withholding evidence or obstructing justice. Ever think about that, sweetheart? Lets say for one second that you have something real (which you dont), it is immoral to with-hold it. I put you as low down as the zodiac himself for wanting to profit from this.

Your like a kid - hey everyone I've got a secret and I'm not telling you what it is - you have to email me and I will make you jump through many hoops before giving you nothing because I have nothing other than the need of your attention.
