To i ja zacytuje Toma V. (cytat z 17-9-2008):
"Today I was contacted by Paul Stine's nephew, Joe; he left a voice message on my Zodiac info line. I called him back and we spoke for more than a half hour. Here are a few details: At the time of his murder, Stine "had just received his professorship from Stanford." Apparently he had been hired by the university. His ambition was to teach, and as a result of his status with Stanford, all of his siblings were awarded scholarships as long as they majored in english. As far as Joe is aware, nobody else in the family attended Stanford, and as far as Joe knows, Paul had been a student there. Paul was into the hippie counterculture in Haight/Ashbury where he lived, although he preferred country music and -- as far as Joe is aware -- never dressed like a hippie or grew out his hair. Paul was a very conservative dresser, at least around his family, and only smoked weed; no other drugs. Wife Claudia had Paul cremated, and that caused some drama as Paul's family didn't want that. Paul and Claudia had no children. Apparently a Modesto TV station has video of Paul's brother, Joe, challenging Zodiac to a fight. Mental health issues run in the family, and several have been committed. Joe hadn't heard the rumor that Paul had been hired by the San Francisco Chronicle shortly before his murder."
A nastepnie post uzytkownika No it's Not, odnoszacy sie posrednio do kwestii alkoholowej:
"Tracers, I believe it is the same nephew. He confirmed tonight that Paul was no longer working for Yellow cab the night he was killed. There was to be a party to celebrate Paul's hiring at Stanford. However, a friend at Yellow cab asked Paul to cover his shift and the rest is history. My goodness,what a twist to the tragedy.. Thanks for the info Tom. -Nin"
