 --This is the continuation of a previous post titled "DONALD & BETTYE HARDEN BREAKING THE ZODIAC KILLER" that you can see here:

 --Now I want to know what happened to these ordinary people who deciphered the hidden message of a murderer extraordinary.


Once upon a time

Donald Harden worked as a history teacher at Salinas High School and was recovering at home from a complicated eye surgery. Scattered He scanned the "San Francisco Chronicle". On the fourth side was under the heading "Encrypted message the killer" a mysterious document printed.  3 parts and 24 lines with 408 characters: letters of the alphabet, Greek characters, astrological symbols and maritime character. Also remembering. Slowly, almost reluctantly, he can those August days of the year 1969 call to mind the changed his life forever. He was 41 years old.

Donald Gene Harden

 The last line consists of  unintelligible words : "ebeorietemethhpiti." A name? An address? A town? They are still a puzzle. 

+ Vallejo Det. Sgt. John Lynch was at last convinced: "There is no doubt in my mind that this is a true translation of the cipher and that the murderer wrote it," he said. "I think perhaps the man's name is in the cryptogram, possibly in the last four words." 

+ Harden, after cracking the code, formed these general theories about its author: "He is bright enough, but not necessarily of high intellect.... He may be in or near middle age, because he uses one term (not revealed by police) that has dropped out of general slang use..."

Donald Gene Harden explains

 "The day that I saw the cryptic text for the first time, was the third August 1969, I think it was a Sunday. "

 An unknown person had sent the Code Editor, accompanied by a letter in which he confessed to two brutal murders in the previous month. Two teenagers were executed literally in a parking lot. The Unknown wrote: "I want you to print this cipher text on the front page of your newspaper. In the text of my identity is hidden. If you do not print it, I will start a series of murders". The message was signed with a cross in a circle. It was the first message of the madman who called himself a little later, in a second letter, "Zodiac".

 For him, the first code was a puzzle, been a game.

This is the FBI speaking.

+ After the Hardens' decryption was published, they became overnight celebrities, something they never anticipated. Then they received a call from the FBI. They were right. "I don't know what my ex-wife told them. I wasn't there. All I know is we never heard from them again,"

A gun under the bed.

  "We didn't realize the media fallout that would follow. I was interviewed on America's Most Wanted for about half a second. But my ex-wife got so paranoid that every time a reporter would come by she'd start worrying the killer was going to find us. I had to buy a gun and put it under the bed. I never had a gun before and I never used it. I just bought it to calm her down. I got rid of it a couple of years later."

Back to work (in the traditional way)
 + His students were amazed at their teacher’s prowess and terrified like all school kids in the Bay area of the cipher slayer. “When it was published, the kids at school wouldn’t let up about it. So one day I sat them all down and told them all about it, how I did it and that was it,” Harden recalls. “I did it to calm them down and after that nobody ever mentioned it again. “

+ First, he had to teach them about code breaking, a jargon term for decryption or breaking encryption, which is the process of obscuring information to make something unreadable without special knowledge. Ciphers are the plain text letters, characters or symbol substitutes that can stand alone or be used in groups in an encrypted message. Although the term code is used interchangeably with cipher, codes are usually converted words or phrases that are generally used to shorten a message.

+ In Graysmith’s book Zodiac, Harden told how he broke down the killer’s encrypted missive. First he checked for frequency of certain letters. “He knew that E was the common letter in the English language followed by T, A, O, N, I, R and S. The common double letters are L, E and S,” wrote Graysmith. The letters most frequently occurring together are TH, HE and AN. More than half of all words begin with T, A, O, S or W and the most common three letter combinations were THE, ING, CON and ENT. 

+ Harden decided the killer was using substitution ciphers which are symbols or figures, not letters. Since the killer had used a multitude of symbols, a one-for-one substitution for letters wasn’t possible. Harden had to get creative, deduce the killer’s method of repeating symbols and reduce the number of variables. Then it hit him – the most commonly doubled letter in the English language is L. So he looked for four letter patterns in the killer’s cryptogram that would mesh with the word “kill.” 

+ “Battlefield cryptanalysts, for example, scan any captured ciphers for symbols that might stand for attack,” noted Graysmith. With that thinking in mind, the Hardens used “killing” twice and “killed” and “thrilling” once each. Other double-L words were “will’’ used four times and “collecting” once. Then they determined the killer’s traps – he used the symbol of a backward Q 15 times to lure code breakers into thinking it was an E, the most commonly used letter. For an E the killer used 7 different symbols. Two different symbols were used for A and S interchangeably. The killer’s spelling was not only poor but in some cases there were mistakes in the ciphers themselves.

Last years of Donald

+ Even the 79-year-old Donald Harden let himself down five years ago with his second wife Dee in Fountain Hills. 

+ Fountain Hills is a small artificial town in the Arizona desert, an hour north of Phoenix. Many wealthy retirees who have villas here, Mexican-style building - the dry desert air is ideal for a retirement home. 

+ He likes to sit with his trusty dachshund on his lap in the spacious living room with an iced tea and solves crossword puzzles with his wife. She heads to the local bridge club, every Monday, the two play a few games, then they go eat.

 Leslie (Harden) Harper -Daughter- explains

From: Zodiackiller.com Message Board: A Tribute to Bettye Harden (With Pics).

"I would like your readers to know that the first code's solution was a collaborative effort on the part of both of my parents. My father (Donald G. Harden) furnished the cryptography techniques and my mother brought her own intensity, zeal and drive to the project. I remember my parents sitting at our dining room table with San Francisco Chronicle folded to the code. My mother sat at the table working with the odd symbols of the code and became obsessed with it. She sat there until the code was cracked and did not sleep for several days. I remember the conversations between my parents as they worked: my dad expressing doubt about the message, about the syntax; my mother was so sure, so positive. She knew.

My mom was not interested in giving interviews and was content to have my dad handle the media. She was a bit afraid of being photographed in connection with the code.

 Early interviews do explain the team effort involved, but a recent article published in the Salinas Californian (January 20, 2007) quoted my father as saying he worked on the code pretty much exclusively. He has developed Alzheimer's and actually remembers very little.

Capture from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzOZW7pfBYw&feature=endscreen&NR=1
I want to make sure that my mother's contribution is not overlooked. In fact, I am convinced that the code would not have been solved without her obsessive determination. Bettye is not here to speak for herself, so I'll do my best to explain: my mother had an unusually brilliant, creative and intuitive mind. She saw patterns that others missed. Patterns of behavior, of events. She was also quite profoundly psychic. She was diagnosed variously with Schizophrenia, Multiple Personality Disorder and Manic Depressive.

In her later years, the "Z", as she referred to him, was often on her mind and she lived in fear. I can remember finding her asleep in her bathtub because she was too afraid to sleep in her bed.

Bettye would be glad to know of the resurgence in interest in the Zodiac case. She loved mysteries and puzzles and found both in this unsolved case. In some ways, the work she put in on the codes represents her life's work and I know she would be glad to be recognized for her contributions."

(Dec. 20, 2008 | San Francisco, Cal.)

Leslie (Harden) Harper -Daughter- explains in the ROXIE TEATHER TASK-FORCE MEETING (Dec. 20, 2008 | San Francisco, Cal.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRTHotIASUI&list=FLa_7


At the California medical facility in Vacaville, contacted by Vallejo police as soon as the cipher was cracked, said on Aug. 11 that it was.....

"The work of someone you would expect to be brooding and isolated. He probably is a guy who broods about cutoff feelings, about being cut off from his fellow man. . ... .comparing the thrill of killing to the satisfaction of sex is usually an expression of inadequacy. He probably feels his fellow man looks down on him for some reason." 

The belief that his victims would be his slaves in, an afterlife reflects a feeling of omnipotence, the unnamed psychiatrist added, indicating a paranoid delusion o grandeur — expressed through a belief common among primitive people throughout history. And the taunting notes and phone calls may be a plea to be found out, exposed perhaps cornered — in which event, the psychiatrist said, grandiose paranoid quite likely might take his own life, as a grand gesture, to punish the world for its neglect of him life.

AND COULD it still be hoax? The psychiatrist was asked.
"If this is a put-on, then it's the product of a very, very disturbed person. If this is hot a put-on, the man probably will kill again." It was no put-on.

+ The name of the murderer seems that was not in the hidden message

+ Now find the murderer of the zodiac would rest with another couple:
 DONALD FOUKE & ERIC ZELMS, police officers of SFPD.

+ The officer who was inside the police car, Don Fouke, told ABC's Primetime in 2002:
 "When the headlights hit him I took a look at him. It was a white male and [I] continued on. He came down ... the north side of the street and turned and went up a flight of stairs into a courtyard." 

+ As revealed in the movie Zodiac, Officer Fouke didn't stop the man because the initial police bulletin reported that the suspect was black. Moments after Don Fouke passed the man, the dispatcher corrected her description of the suspect to say that it was a white male. 

+ In a letter sent to the San Francisco Chronicle approximately one month later on November 9, 1969, the Zodiac murderer confirmed that Officer Fouke had spotted him, "Hey pig! Doesn't it rile you up to have your nose rubbed in your booboos?"


Did Fouke confess that he stopped the Zodiac, or did he confess that he was the one who had been accused of doing so?

Soon muslim armies returned
 to Granada & Cordoba.

ADDENDA: ..... AND SEVILLE ALSO (5 Quatrains).

The death of Osama Bin Laden, at the hands of the U.S. military, makes remember me when the leader of Al Qaeda set his sights and his speech, repeatedly, in the territories of Al Andalus and in cities like Granada and Cordoba.
It is known as al-Andalus (Arabic classic الأندلس Andalus)
One of those moments came at the end of 2009, when a lieutenant of bin Laden, Ayman al Zawahiri, threatened France and Spain claiming territories. In a video broadcast around the world, this is addressed members of Al Qaeda in the Maghreb to encourage them to "disinfect" of "infidels" these areas.

In the video showed al Qaeda territories that were conquered by the Maghreb, appearing a map of the Iberian Peninsula with a shading of conquest spread beyond the Pyrenees, under the name of Al Andalus. That video also showed images of the Alhambra in Granada and the Mosque of Cordoba.

The Alhambra is a Nasrid "palace city". It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984. It is certainly Granada's most emblematic monument and one of the most visited in Spain. It consists of a defensive zone, the Alcazaba, together with others of a residential and formal state character, the Nasrid Palaces and, lastly, the palace, gardens and orchards of El Generalife.

In the 11th century the Castle of the Alhambra was developed as a walled town which became a military stronghold that dominated the whole city. But it was in the 13th century, with the arrival of the first monarch of the Nasrid dynasty, Mohammed I ibn Nasr (Mohammed I, 1238–1273), that the royal residence was established in the Alhambra. This marked the beginning of its heyday. The Alhambra became palace, citadel and fortress, and was the residence of the Nasrid sultans and their senior officials, including servants of the court and elite soldiers (13th-14th centuries).
More about Granada & Alhambra, see:

Experts on terrorism even claimed that bin Laden was "obsessed" with Al Andalus, in fact, occur months after the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, Osama Bin Laden compared the "tragedy" of Al Andalus with Palestine .

 Traditional Islamic theology holds that any land that has once belonged to the House of Islam belongs to it forever. That is the ultimate impulse behind the efforts to eradicate Israel, and a growing parallel movement in Spain. 

+ Former Jordanian Minister of Religious Endowment said (2008):

File:Mosque of Cordoba Spain.jpg
The interior of the Cathedral of Cordoba, formerly the Great Mosque of Córdoba. The cathedral is one of the finest examples of Arab-Islamic architecture in the Umayyad style. An Islamic Mosque (742) built on the site of the Visigothic Christian 'Saint Vincent basilica' (600) then reconquered for the Christian Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción in 1236. WIKIPEDIA
More about Cordoba & the mosque of Cordoba, see:

"In 1492, we lost everything"

+ On January 2, 1492, the last Muslim ruler in Iberia, Emir Muhammad XII, known as Boabdil to the Spanish, surrendered complete control of the Emirate or Kingdom of Granada to Fernando II and Isabel I, Los Reyes Católicos ('The Catholic Monarchs'), after the last battle of the Granada War.

+ The year marks the traumatic conclusion of Islam's golden age, a time remembered like a collective wound.

+ It's a period when the last piece of Muslim-held territory in Spain fell to Catholic monarchs, ending almost 800 years of Moorish rule on the Iberian peninsula.

+ Centuries when poetry, science and architecture flourished under Islamic caliphs expired with bonfires of Arabic manuscripts, mass expulsion and extermination in the Inquisition.

+ To the east, the Muslim empire of the Ottomans would reign for another four centuries. But many would trace its long decline to the fall of Al Andalus, the Moorish name for Andalusia.

 More INFO about Al Andalus, see:
"When the moors ruled in Europe"
- CHANNEL 4 Television, 2005 -

+ The result is a yearning that today makes Spain, more than any other European country, a battleground in the name of Islam.

+ After the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, bin Laden's chief lieutenant, Ayman al Zawahiri, drew a parallel between the loss of the Iberian peninsula and the struggle of Palestinians.

"We will not accept that the tragedy of Al Andalus be repeated in

-Century V - Quatrain 55, Possible english traslation:
In the country of Arabia Felix
There will be born one powerful in the law of Mahomet:
To vex Spain, to conquer
And more by sea against the Ligurian people.

+The Ligurians (Λιγυες Greek, Latin Ligurians) were a people protohistoric Europe. They populated the French southeastern and northwestern Italy. The Indo-European invasions of the thirteenth century BC conquered part of its territory, isolating the Ligurians in the subalpine region (current Provence and Liguria).



-Century III - Quatrain 20, old French:

Loing d'Ibere au royaume de Grenade
Croix repoussees par gens Mahometiques

Through the regions of the Guadalquivir
Deep in Iberia to the Kingdom of Granada
Crosses beaten back by the Mahometan peoples
One of Cordoba will betray his country

+Guadalquivir: The name comes from the Arabic al-wādi al-kabīr (الوادي الكبير), 'The Great River'. Classical Arabic Wadi is pronounced in present-day Maghreb as Oued. The Phoenicians named the river Baits, later Betis (or Baetis) from pre-Roman times to the Al-Andalus period, giving its name to the Hispania Baetica Roman province.

+ Byzantium is today Turkish territory and its citizens are Turks.

+ Cordoba is a city in Southern Spain which was once occupied by Muslims. It was then the glorious capital of the Muslim caliphate (Islamic theocracy or rule) and known as "the Mecca of the West." The name then given to the Spanish territories under Muslim rule (711-1492) was "Al-Andalus." 

+ Jews and Muslims were finally expelled from Spain if they did not convert to the Catholic faith. Between 1609 and 1614, 296,000 Muslims were expelled from Spain, back to North Africa where they had originally come from.

+ Golongna could be Bologna o Bolonia is a city of Italy, capital of Emilia-Romagna (in the north), located between the river and the river Savena Reno, near the Apennines.

4. Muslim troops to France through Spain (Seville)

-Century I - Quatrain 73, old French:
France à cinq parts par neglect assaillie,
Tunys, Argiels esmeuz par Persiens:
(1) Leon, Seuille, Barcelone faillie
 N'aura la classe par les Venitiens(2).

-Century I - Quatrain 73, possible English traslation.
France to five side by neglect assaulted,
Tunis, Algiers 
revolted by Persians:
(1) Leon,
Seville , Barcelona fallen.  

 Will not have the fleet by the Venetians.(2)


1. Leon, Seville and Barcelona are Spanish cities. 

Seville is the capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville, Spain. It is situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir. During the Muslim rule in Spain (al-Andalus), Seville came under the jurisdiction of the Caliphate of Córdoba before becoming the independent Taifa of Seville, which was incorporated into the Christian Kingdom of Castile under Ferdinand III in 1248.

See Leon, Barcelona, Seville, Algeria, France .....

 The Moorish urban influences continued and are present in contemporary Seville, for instance in the custom of decorating with herbaje and small fountains the courtyards of the houses. However, most buildings of the Moorish aesthetic actually belong to the Mudéjar style of Islamic art, developed under Christian rule and inspired by the Arabic style. Original Moorish buildings are the Patio del Yeso in the Alcázar, the city walls, and the main section of the Giralda, bell tower of the Seville.

 2. Who are the Venetians? 

There are two options

+ The first option is to be a resident of Venice (Italy) which is nearing Aviano air base. 

+ The second option is to be an resident of Brittany peninsula because the Veneti were a seafaring Celtic people who lived in the Brittany peninsula (France), which in Roman times formed part of an area called Armorica. They gave their name to the modern city of Vannes.

You can see the "VENETI", they were a seafaring Celtic people who lived in the Brittany peninsula (France). MORE READ http://www.celtnet.org.uk/gaulish-tribes.html

+ CLASSE: from Latin classis class, rank, fleet; related to Latin calāre to summon.

+ But I prefer the second option for the existence of one of the most famous naval bases: Brest, is a city in the Finistère département in Brittany in northwestern France. Located in a sheltered position not far from the western tip of the Breton peninsula, and the western extremity of metropolitan France, Brest is an important harbour and the second French military port after Toulon.

Military port of Toulon in 2009. (Photo: Jesfr)

+ The Arsenal de Brest comprises a set of naval installations located in the river Penfeld at Brest, France. It is a major French naval port in the Atlantic. It houses a nuclear missile-launching submarine fleet forming the Force Océanique Stratégique (FOST) of the French Navy.

Arsenal de Brest is the main French naval base in the Atlantic and the base hosts the nuclear missile-launching submarine fleet of the French Navy.
+ Arsenal de Brest is also the headquarters of the French naval and oceanographic service. The submarine base at Île Longue is located south-west of Brest.

I guess  

---Algerians and Tunisians support to Persia (Iran or Turkey because the Persian Empire include them in their territory) and from North Afric, through Spain, the Muslim troops attacked France for five locations.

These are the 5 easiest ways to get to France from the south or southeast:

1 Spain - France:  To Irun and Bayonne
2 Spain - France:  To Portbou and Cerbere
3 Sea: From Barcelona to Marseille
4 Italy - France: To Monaco
5 Switzerland - France: From Geneva to Lyon, through the Jura mountains. 

---The naval base of Toulon, near Marseilles, will be destroyed or transferred, and only the second to remain operational naval base. Brest base that may not help his fellows and countrymen of Toulon (Provence, France).

I advise that you should look at a map. 

....... And to think that all this is not going to help anything.


ADDENDA ET CORRIGENDA (November 15, 2012)


 -Century X - Quatrain 44, old French:
Par lors qu'vn Roy sera contre les siens,
Natif de Bloys subiuguera Ligures:
Mammel, Cordube & les Dalmatiens,
Des sept puis l'ombre à Roy estrennes & lemures. 

 -Century X - Quatrain 44, possible English traslation.
When a King will be against his people,
A native of Blois will subjugate the Ligurians:
Cordoba and the Dalmatians,
Of the seven then under the shade to the King releases
& lemurs(1).

1) In Roman mythology, lemures (singular lemur) were shades or spirits of the restless or malignant dead, and are probably cognate with an extended sense of larvae (sing. larva = mask) as disturbing or frightening. 

Some Roman authors describe the lemurs as the common name for all the spirits of the dead, and divided into two classes: the Lares, or benevolent souls of the family, protecting the domus, or house, and the larvae, or restless horrible souls of evil men. May 9, 11, and 13 were dedicated to their placation in the household practices of Lemuralia or Lemuria. The head of household (paterfamilias) would rise at midnight and cast black beans behind him with averted gaze; the Lemures were presumed to feast on them.

Four centuries later, St. Augustine describes both the lemures and the larvae as evil and restless manes that torment and terrify the living: lares, on the other hand, are good manes.


I guess:

+ The French Republic will become kingdom and this strange change sear the beginning of a series of victories over the Muslim invaders

 + Firstly troops landed around Marseille will be defeated and so will in all directions: to Andalusia (Cordoba), to the Balkans (Dalmatia) and to the east of Europe (Memmel).  

+ And so will Europe liberated Muslim yoke.

+ And now I expect Obama's visit to Jerusalem riding his "beast", as I already wrote over a year ago.  


Soon I'll include nostradamus texts in which these words appear: vendredy, venus, orient, punic, Hannibal ...... related to the Muslim world.
