I just wondered if anyone had watched the movie Zodiac and thought it was good? I've read both the  Zodiac and Zodiac Unmasked and thought it was amazingly on track with the book. It's sad to think one of the greastest who dunnits probably would of been a no brainer had the diffrent jurisdiction worked together. Truly amazing I go to the official zodiac website alot and Arthur Lee Allen was always my  pick. I don't think the DNA test they did on the envelopes really was conclusive so I think Lee was Zodiac. I also wondered if anyone was following the Phil Spector trail on court T.V. and what you'r opioion was as to if Lana shot herself or if Phil shot her? Just wandering about other peoples feeling on these two cases.

      Currently Reading Minds Games By Carlton Smith/ haven't read much but really like it so far.

I've read Zodiac years ago..but haven't followed up.  I did see the movie...

I am watching the Spector trial online with NO commercials.  Is that so cool or what!!  Being on the East Coast...Court TV hardly has any of the trial on so this so neat.  My husband is gone this week so I have been carrying his laptop around so I can watch it while doing things around the house. I think Spector was trying to get her to stay and he accidentally killed her.  Big money can buy freedom and I sure hope he doesn't get off from this crime.  I do not believe that she decided to commit suicide while sitting in his house.  I think Doctor Baden is a hired gun and I disregard anything he says.  I wonder what is wrong with his wife..she's been sick a long time.

I'm with you on Spector being guilty it is just really hard to believe she waits to kill herself until she is at his house ? whats the odds usually people who commit suicide that way have had a history with the person that they kill themselves in front of. I'm just sick of high profile murder trails .It really does seem like you can buy freedom.I really don't put any crediability into people like Baden either they just twist things to fit with who ever they are payed the most by,It is really a sad comment on our judical system

I think Spector accidently killed her. His comment to his chauffer pretty much corroborates that. I think he should get negligent homicide, and I think he probably will based on his comment to the chauffer and the testimony of the five women he waved guns at. She definitely didn't commit suicide.

I wish they would just hurry up and get this trial over with. It has lasted way too long. There's no way I believe she killed herself, especially since he is known to pull guns on people in the past. I haven't been watching the case on court tv because I can't stand to look at him. Who the heck is his hair stylist, he should be shot.

I think now with the new jury instructions the jury may come back with a guilty verdict. You can only hope. I think he needs to be found guilty of SOMETHING, though I agree that trying to change the charges in the middle of jury deliberations wasn't the correct thing to do.  Nancy

I haven't been able to follow the spector case, but I wanted to comment on the Zodiac movie.

I was very happy with how on track the zodiac movie was with the books. I was hoping it would reopen interest in the public.

Me to I think that case could be solved , I'm pretty sure they are on the right track with the main suspect. That case has really interested me .Zodiackiller.com is really a good website.

I''m shocked that the jury resulted in a mistrial.  Women generally don't shoot themselves when they commit suicide, and especially in a stranger's house.  I totally think Phil is guilty.
