The Question Remains: Who is the Zodiac?Only one killer solves the riddle of the Zodiac. Theodore Kaczynski, dubbed the Unabomber, fills in the gaps of the Zodiac mystery to present the full picture of both criminal careers.Ted Kaczynski:— had experience building bombs which he threatened to use on school children as the Zodiac, and that he subsequently used to kill his victims as the Unabomber— had a psychotic break at age 24, where he convinced himself that he was free of any moral or ethical standard that would prevent him from killing anyone he chose— was a professor at UC Berkeley as the Zodiac murders began, and had easy access to all of the murder sites and victims— was a prolific letter writer whose primary mode of communication was the written word, just like the Zodiac killer— was a genius-level mathematician who was fully capable of creating the Zodiac ciphers, as demonstrated by the codes found in his cabin after his capture in 1996— as the Zodiac, acted out his plan for gaining the attention of the public that he later presented in his Unabomber manifesto— possessed the type of weapons, disguises, and margin notes that would be expected of the Zodiac serial killerThe evidence is there. The answer is Ted Kaczynski.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/house-of-mystery-true-crime-history. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

WINNER Best Book of 2017 - Original Jack the Ripper Best Of AwardsFrom the author of The Bank Holiday Murders: The True Story of the First Whitechapel MurdersGroundbreaking history and exciting investigative journalism combine in a work jam-packed with newly unearthed finds and fresh insights that pull us deeper into the world of Jack the Ripper and closer to the man himself. Wescott does not promote a suspect but instead comprehensively investigates the murders of Polly Nichols and Elizabeth Stride, bringing to light new medical evidence, crucial new material on important witnesses, and – revealed for the first time – the name of a woman who may have met Jack the Ripper and survived to tell the tale. Also discussed in this book: Charles Lechmere, recently named as a suspect in the Jack the Ripper documentary, Conspiracy: The Missing Evidence, is restored to his proper place in history as an innocent witness. Walter Sickert, the subject of Patricia Cornwell’s Jack the Ripper books, was not the Ripper, but is revealed here to have been only one of several artists and poets who may have been acquainted with victim Mary Kelly. Bruce Robinson’s Jack the Ripper book, They All Love Jack, controversially endorsed the myth that fruiterer Matthew Packer sold grapes to Liz Stride which were later found on her hand. Around this was constructed an intricate police conspiracy. In Ripper Confidential the truth is exposed and these events are proved beyond doubt to have never taken place. Was Elizabeth Stride a Ripper victim? For the first time, all the myths are cleared away and the facts are looked at in great detail. The contemporary investigators speak out from the past and tell us what they thought of one of the Ripper’s most enigmatic and controversial clues – the chalk-written message on the wall in Goulston Street. Did the Ripper write it and what might it actually have said? A comprehensive look is taken at Berner Street witness, Israel Schwartz. Why did he disappear within weeks from the written record? Was or was he not a legitimate witness? This and much more is discussed, and for the first time it’s revealed why he did not give evidence at the inquest, why the two best known versions of his story are inconsistent, and – most crucially – that he was not the last person to see Liz Stride with a man who was probably her killer. Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/house-of-mystery-true-crime-history.

Of all the notorious serial killers of the 20th century, only San Francisco’s Zodiac remains at large. A cold-blooded psycho stalking the nightmare streets of the late 1960s, he left behind at least five dead victims. The menacing sociopath sent more than two dozen letters to the newspapers, including four weird ciphers. Only the first code was cracked, and it began: I LIKE KILLING PEOPLE BECAUSE IT IS SO MUCH FUN. His last three ciphers, including the infamously unintelligible Z340, have confounded cryptographers and computer science professionals alike. But the most terrifying thing about him is that he was more than one person! The first half of ZODIAC KILLER SOLVED walks the reader through a detailed analysis of the forensics, ballistics, circumstantial evidence, and eyewitness testimony of the Zodiac crimes, and arrives at a startling conclusion:The Zodiac murders were committed by four highly proactive and extremely intellectual conspirators: 1. a “trigger man” career academic who lectured on public policy at Harvard; 2. a “press agent” librarian and Germanic languages scholar from Cal-Berkeley; 3. a “cryptographer” statistician for the California Department of Justice; and 4. the female artistic “mastermind,” a founder of the Sculptor’s Guild in NYC. The second half of ZODIAC KILLER SOLVED documents the author’s attempt to prevent a criminal catastrophe predicted by the Zodiac ciphers—The Terminus Event, an occurrence eerily similar to September 11th, 2001—in which a skyscraper in Cambridge, Massachusetts will be blown to bits, and innocent bystanders in Boston will then serve as targets for Zodiac snipers firing from a downtown rooftop.No book like ZODIAC KILLER SOLVED has ever existed, and no amount of analysis offered in any other criminal procedural, however detailed its examination may be, compares with what is put forth here in depth and scope.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/house-of-mystery-true-crime-history.

This is the new, complete, single-book edition! If you previously read the three separate books, you do NOT need to buy this one again! According to the actual police department files and evidence from the original murder cases, there was no "Zodiac Killer," only some phony letters to the SF Chronicle claiming credit for some unrelated murders, followed by an exploitative book full of falsehoods by Robert Graysmith (real name: Robert Smith, Jr). This book thoroughly debunks Graysmith's 1986 book ZODIAC, explores in detail the cultural and literary environment that inspired the original Zodiac hoax, and explains what really happened in each murder, who real suspects were, what the real evidence was--and who REALLY wrote the "Zodiac Killer" letters!This new edition includes ALL THREE original books: The Great Zodiac Killer Hoax of 1986, The Great Zodiac Killer Hoax of 1969, and the Myth of the Zodiac Killer!Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/house-of-mystery-true-crime-history.

An investigation of the evidence for links between Dracula and Jack the Ripper, containing original research and previously unpublished and rare materials/illustrations—as well as an evocative exploration of the theater and esoteric scene in 1880s LondonSince its publication in 1897, there have been suggestions that the fictional exploits of Dracula were more closely associated with Jack the Ripper than a Transylvanian Count. Historian Neil Storey provides the first British-based investigation of the sources used by Stoker and paints an evocative portrait of Stoker, his influences, friends, and the London he knew in the late 19th century. Among Stoker's group of friends, however, were dark shadows. Storey explores how Stoker created Dracula out of the climate of fear that surrounded the Jack the Ripper murders in 1888. Add to this potent combination the notion that Stoker may have known Jack the Ripper personally and hidden the clues to this terrible knowledge in his book. The premise is seductive and connects some of the giants of stage and literature of late Victorian Britain. Having gained unprecedented access to the unique archive of one of Stoker's most respected friends and the dedicatee of Dracula, Storey sheds new light on both Stoker and Dracula, and reveals startling new insights into the links between Stoker's creation and the most infamous murderer of all timeSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/house-of-mystery-true-crime-history.

Who really killed President John F. Kennedy? Sean Zumwalt is about to find out. I knew it. I knew it, he repeated to himself. A conspiracy. But who had planned the murder? Was Lee Harvey Oswald even involved? If only one could go back in time and solve the mystery. I have to pursue this, he told himself. Someone has to find out the truth once and for all. On November 22, 2063 a new film finally proves a conspiracy was involved in the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Sean Zumwalt dares to go back in time to alter the course of world history and save JFK. But he soon finds that the truth is much more complicated than he ever could have imagined. Based on actual events and forty years of research, The Man From 2063 will take you through the folds of time and historical conspiracies, leaving you wondering 'What if?' 'Although I reject the premise of The Man from 2063, that Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill President John F. Kennedy and that there was a conspiracy in the assassination, from a purely fictional standpoint Jack Duffy has succeeded in writing a very clever and engrossing 'what if' story surrounding the events of November 22, 1963.' - Vincent Bugliosi, author of Helter Skelter Jack Duffy has interviewed many eyewitnesses including Marina Oswald and several of the Parkland physicians who treated JFK, in addition to many researchers who have written books on JFK's assassination. He received his B.A. in Political Science from Texas Tech University, his M.B.A. from Baylor University, and his J.D. from South Texas College of Law. He lives in Fort Worth, Texas, where he works as an attorney and has one of the largest private collections of material on the JFK assassination.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/house-of-mystery-true-crime-history.

Bigfoot and the Boogerman? Would you be willing to admit what the government has already admitted, that government officials actively conspired to cover up evidence in the JFK murder?
