“Mysteries at the Museum–Special: Zodiac Killer”
Fans of the popular show starring history enthusiast and self-proclaimed adventurer, Don Wildman, will want to be sure to tune in on October 3, 2018 at 9 pm ET/PT as he delves into the mystery of one of the most puzzling unsolved case in the history of the U.S.
The Zodiac Killer, a serial killer who operated in Northern California from the late 1960s to the early 1970s, baffles authorities to this day claiming the lives of seven people we know of for certain, and sending a host of cryptic letters to newspapers and police in the process. The fact that the killer was never caught has only added to his infamy.
Wildman will delve into the case on this special episode, speaking to cryptographers, DNA experts, and a retired inspector who worked the case when the killer was still active to attempt to shed light on this mysterious dark figure. #MATM
