THE AGE OF ZODIAC-Michael Benson
1 hr 29 min
You probably know part of the Zodiac story. The guy killed five, wounded two, wrote letters in code, and drew tremendous press. There was a great movie about the case. But true crime veteran Michael Benson is taking a brand new look at that most-interesting of cold cases, coming from the mindset that the Zodiac’s combination of diverse killing styles, codemaking, and letter writing means more than one guy was involved. The Zodiac has team-work written all over it. And so, perhaps, a Zodiac Club. Many Zodiac experts assume that, in later Zodiac letters when “he” wrote the San Francisco Examiner letters claiming a prolific kill count, that the guy responsible for the murders of Betty Lou Jensen, David Faraday, Darlene Ferrin, Cecilia Shephard, and Paul Stine (and maybe Cheri Jo Bates) was just bragging about the other forty or so. Benson looks at it another way. All of them could have been the Zodiac, if the Zodiac was a psycho squad not a lone nut. Each and every victim gets Benson’s full attention and, as the body count grows, there is ongoing analysis involving hard and circumstantial evidence, commonalities between the murders, geographic profiling, and pertinent connections to known Zodiac suspects. Many murders are examined. It was the era of serial murder, an epidemic, especially bad in northern California where privacy, seclusion, dusty wilderness, and hitchhiking were prevalent. Some of these cases were found to be not the Zodiac at all, but perhaps a glimpse at the early work of a Ted Bundy, Ed Kemper, “Golden State Killer” Joseph DeAngelo, and other known killers, the next wave of psycho serial carnage.

138 - Littleton Bowling Alley Triple Homicide
***Sponsored by: SimpliSafe. Visit SimpliSafe.com/Trace for a sixty day free trial and a FREE home security camera. Firstleaf! Visit TryFirstleaf.com/Trace for six bottles of wine for just $29.95 and free shipping!*** In late January, 2002, twenty-three year old Bobby Zajac, twenty-six year old Erin Golla and twenty-nine year old James Springer Jr were preparing to leave the AMF Broadway Bowling Lanes in Littleton, Colorado, when they were seized upon by an armed individual. After robbing the safe, the thief turned into a cold blooded killer, executing all three with a handgun. Moments later he casually walked out of the building, smirking to a witness waiting to pick up Erin before driving off into obscurity. For nearly twenty years police and the families have sought justice, though it has remained elusive. Was this a random robbery gone wrong? A planned attack? Was one of the victims an intended target or could this horrible crime be linked to another series of murders that happened just two months later?

“Tricia Todd, Faith & Forgiveness” | MURDERISH Ep. 070
In April of 2016, Air Force veteran and hospice nurse Tricia Todd mysteriously vanished from a tranquil beachside town. The 33-year-old mother of one was vivacious, compassionate, and well-liked in her community. No one could ever imagine she would abandon her young daughter, and the notion of someone wanting to harm her was equally unfathomable. Years of secrecy obscured a daunting truth, one that wouldn’t be fully unveiled until it was much too late. Check us out: Visit Murderish.com for more info about the show and Creator/Host, Jami.

Teekah Lewis
"I turned my head for less than a minute and she was gone. Someone had to pick her up and run out the door." On the evening of January 23rd, 1999, two-year-old Teekah Lewis was abducted from the New Frontier Lanes bowling alley in Tacoma, WA. Teekah's family had been watching the child walk back-and-forth from the arcade just feet away from them, and in the 10-15 seconds that the child was unsupervised that night, she would disappear. Almost immediately, police suspected foul play. Within days, they had become reasonably certain that this was a rare case of stranger abduction...
