So many are made by people who seem to know nothing about the facts of the case they look at.

I'm just about to watch this series, should I not bother?

I don't really know anything about the Zodiac killings, thought it might be a good primer for me.

Hi dr.
No watch it. But I would recommend just looking it up on Wikipedia to get the objective facts first. These types of “documentaries” not there forte.

Yes, I was watching this series, I think pt 3 was just on.
I had to wonder if this was a legitimate documentary.
What happened to Arthur Leigh Allen being the main suspect?

There's been a number of 'fake' documentaries on this past year, just pseudo-scientific bull$hit. They've found another way of promoting fringe theories.

I'm not overly familiar with this case but I have watched a documentary recently which it said they only had a partial DNA sample from the envelopes, which means you can rule certain people out but not conclusively rule someone as a match.

And that is a match for the persons saliva that is on the envelope, not necessarily the killer.

My info may be out of date or inaccurate, could anyone who knows a little more about the case confirm if the above is true?

I think less emphasis was placed on Allen as a suspect after his DNA failed to match the partial DNA on the envelope.

Thats what I read too, so they don't actually have the killer's DNA, they just assumed the envelope was licked by the killer. Normally it would be a reasonable assumption, but it is still not a fact.

Yes. I’m a tad dubious of the dna evidence as were talking 1969. So early in the science.

Allen IMHO was probably the zodiac. I’m about 80% convinced.

There is talk of DNA on an envelope, but when did self-adhesive stamps become common in the US?
