DNA Doesn't Match Lone Zodiac Suspect

October 16, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

The one suspect investigators had in the Zodiac killings of the late 1960s does not match DNA evidence. Traces of saliva gathered from the cryptic letters the killer sent to police do not match the DNA of the late Arthur Leigh Allen, Vallejo police inspector Kelly Carroll told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Allen was the sole suspect named in the serial killings that terrorized the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960s.

Police, however, recently have discovered more evidence that could help them create a full DNA profile of the person who killed five people from 1968 to 1969.
