Witness: Zodiac Killer Was An Orange County Resident

I've been telling folks we're overdue in Orange County for a sensationally nasty, bizarre crime. You know: something akin to an abused, teenage male goat on a roof and an obviously satisfied ex-sheriff anxious for a party before his freedom is restricted. We're good here for that kind of news.

But today we got a sensationally bizarre story out of No Cal: Deborah Perez, a woman from OC, called a press conference in front of the San Francisco Chronicle and declared that her father, a long deceased Santa Ana carpenter, was the infamous Zodiac Killer. The brutal crime spree 30 years ago was highlighted in a 2007 Jake Gyllenhaal film. 

I point you to the OC Weekly's wonderful sister paper in SF (and reporter Ashley Harrell) for the murderous details HERE.
