A California woman has come forward to claim that her late father was the elusive Zodiac Killer and that she accompanied him on many of his shooting sprees in the late 1960s when she was only 7-years-old, KTVU.com reported.
Kevin Mclean, a California-based attorney, has led a 2-year long investigation into claims made by Deborah Perez that her father, Guy Ward Hendrickson, was the Zodiac Killer and urged her to come forward when he heard that another investigator was planning on presenting another theory to police.
“He was a Jekyll and Hyde,” McLean said of Hendrickson. “He was nuts. He set out to kill people. Some of these killings were not random.”
Perez has also claimed that she helped to write, address and stamp many of the cryptic letters sent to the San Francisco Chronicle following the murder of Paul Stine in 1969 and to have embroidered the mask worn by the killer during many of the murders, KTVU.com reported.
“There were strange events with my father,” she said. “I would hear shots and my father would say it was firecrackers. I would see a woman running and then hear shots and he would tell me someone threw firecrackers at her.”
Hendrickson lived in Orange County, California until 1993 when he died of cancer.
