We wrote yesterday about how holes were popping up in Deborah Perez' Wednesday claim that her father was the Zodiac Killer. Well, if a picture is worth 1,000 words, then the following snapshots say legions. Steve Huff, who writes for our sister publication True Crime Report, obtained the following photos of Perez' father, Guy Ward Hendrickson, from author M. William Phelps.
Phelps says Perez approached him a year ago pitching the story that Hendrickson was the killer -- but broke off contact when asked questions about logical discrepancies in her tale. Since Perez told the throngs of journalists -- and Looney Tunes -- present at her press conference that she became convinced her father was the infamous killer when she saw America's Most Wanted and viewed its suspect sketch, the following side-by-side comparison is in order:
We'll give Huff the last word for now: "To me these are photos of a dead man who had nothing to do with the Zodiac murders."
UPDATE: Note the following comment from Janice Hendrickson, who claims to be Guy Ward Hendrickson's daughter, left on our Web page:
