The Zodiac Killer is connected to five murders that occurred in 1968 and 1969 in the San Francisco area.
Unlike most serial killers, the Zodiac taunted authorities with complex cyphers in letters sent to newspapers and law enforcement.
The slayings have spawned books, movies and documentaries in the years since, and amateur and professional detectives have pored over the case to unmask the killer.
One image uncovered from the darkroom purportedly featured scars on Poste’s forehead, matching a Zodiac sketch.
The team said the Zodiac’s cyphers also point to Poste.
On one note, removing the letters of Poste’s full name revealed an alternate message, according to former Army counterintelligence agent Jen Bucholtz.
