Today marks the 41st anniversary of the double-homicide of teenagers, David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen. David and Betty Lou were slain near the town of Vallejo as they sat and talked in their car on their first date.Their killer would later identify himself as “ZODIAC” in mailings sent to the press as he continued his Bay Area reign of terror in 1969.

    Steve,
    Did you ever investigate very hard whether
    your father was actually in San Francisco at the
    time of the Zodiac slayings?

    SS:
    My father made multiple trips each and every year from Asia to the U.S., during the time period from the late 1960s until his permanent relocation to San Francisco in 1990. I was unable to determine exact dates, as they are not available from forty-years past, but, we do know that he did have the “opportunity.”
