"Zodiac Killer" Letter Claims Responsibility For Soldier's Death
This item updates item ''

In a letter sent to a North Carolina newspaper, a person has claimed responsibility for the death of Army Specialist Megan Touma.

The letter was received by the Fayetteville Observer on Wednesday. In it, the author claims to "have killed many times before in several states."

The author of the letter admitted to killing Touma and threatens to kill again. The letter is signed with a symbol that resembles the symbol used by the Zodiac Killer of the late 1960's.

Army Specialist Megan Touma was found dead in the bathtub of her room at the Fairfield Inn in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday.

Touma, a former Campbell County High School student, grew up in Cold Spring, Kentucky. She joined the Army in 2003 and arrived at Fort Bragg's 19th Replacement Company on June 12, 2008. Touma worked as a dental specialist in the army.

Touma's death remains under investigation. The Fayetteville Police Department called the death suspicious. Authorities said they do not know the cause of death, but said Touma was seven months pregnant.

Touma's is the second pregnant military death in North Carolina this year. Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, from Vandalia, OH, was found dead near Camp Lejeune in January, and a fellow Marine has been charged in her death.

  • i call bullshit on that

    zodiac killer had many copycats even during the time he was doing all those killings -- people writing letters like that. what they need is a handwriting specialist to check similarities between the writing style of the original zodiac and this one.

  • Interesting. Likely it's somebody's idea of a clever alibi that they think will throw police off. It probably will have done nothing but establish an aspect of pre-meditation that will get the executed.

    Yeah, I hadn't watched the whole thing, they just mentioned at the end that they think the letter might be a diversion. That would be my guess.

    • how would the person who wrote the letter know that the same symbol was in the hotel when that information was never released?

      i think the letter was even sent before police released and details which were in the letter.

    • the diversion line was thrown in there to keep the sheep public from panicing because there is a killer on the loose

    • Pretty typical conspiracy theorist.
      If you stopped to think, before spouting ridiculous based-on-absolutely-nothing conspiracy theories, you would not come to all these laughable conclusions pale ale.

      "how would the person who wrote the letter know that the same symbol was in the hotel when that information was never released?"

      Because the person who killed the girl is the one who wrote the letter? DUH?

      Do you even read the ridiculous conspiracy theories you write? Or are your fing More..

    • i think you misunderstood my comment.
      i was agreeing that the killer was the one who wrote the letter and the media was trying to calm the public by claiming that it might be a hoax. but it cant be a hoax, the evidence shows the killer is on the loose.
      of course the media is a partner in catching criminals, but they are also key in keeping the public calm in times like this.

  • thats not the zodiac signiture if u look at it the center of the crosshairs in the video it is more towards the left top corner and if u look back in all of the zodiac letters they tend to stay towards the center and or closer to the bottom right of the circle
