Thread: Zodiac Killer was a Member of the International White Guard

    Thanks for the detailed answer to the Cielo Drive fence question, William. Certainly a lot to think about.

    Tex Watson said that after the crime, he threw away the long barrel .22 revolver that he shot Steve Parent with. Or did someone else shoot Parent again with it later, and then throw the pistol away on the upper canyon roads that morning? Did all the bullets in Parent's body match the same revolver?

    Come to think of it...did the Family have such easy access to small arms that a junior member was advised to throw a handgun away, even one that could be traced to a murder? It would seem not, since their only firearm of record was that small-caliber, hard to conceal, long-barrel revolver, the best they could beg-borrow-steal. Maybe the same handgun did go to Cielo Drive twice, and was thrown away by its true owner after his later visit.

    If no one in the house heard noise from Steve Parent backing his car into the curb and fence, also it's said that no one there was warned by the sound of several small-caliber gun shots before the home invasion. Yet neighbors in the canyon heard shots later in the night. Canyon acoustics, or some other explanation?

    P. S. - I enjoyed your writings on the TSBD some time ago, in The Third Decade (Fourth?)

    I think your comment that the handgun went to Cielo Drive twice is very interesting. I had assumed in the article I wrote that the three shots heard by Bullington came from a different gun.

    When found later by a teenage boy on a hillside, the nine shot revolver had seven empty chambers. We know that Frykowski had two bullet holes, Sebring had one. Perhaps Tex shot Parent once and assumed he was dead. That leaves three shots for the coup de grace to Parent.

    As you say, if Tex shot four bullets into Parent, it would be a stretch to assume that the shots did not alarm the people in the house and they come running out. But maybe one shot would not necessarily bring them out of the house.

    Thanks for your interest in my TSBD articles. If anyone on the forum is interested, you can watch an interview of me with James Fetzer and Larry Rivera.
