Well the issue of the handwriting possibly seeming familiar to them raises another point regarding the handwriting itself and some of the more recognisable, unique words and/or phrases. No one has ever come forward to say they recognise the printing style as their brothers, for example and that the brother also is fond of writing on every Christmas card "Merry ChristMass" as in Christ-Mass. This again tends to make me think he is some loner who doesn't have a social life or a group of friends or close family. Is it really likely that nobody would have recognised Z's writing or certain words and/or phrases he used if Zodiac had a normal, regular group of friends and healthy social life?
Ted Kaczynski's IQ score of 167, which on the scale of IQ scoring deem's him this to be Genius, was caught because his brother recognised many odd phrases that the Unibombr used that he Brother also used regularly, like Ted would often say "You can't eat your cake and have it too" as opposed to the conventional way of saying it being "You can't have your cake and eat it too". Genius Ted was brought down by his own unique ways with words and phrases because they were a part of Teds persona. As humans, it's long been known that we are a pattern seeking species. It's innate in us as humans. We do it to assign understanding to things that we maybe can't grasp on the surface. That why I think Christopher Hitchens was spot on when he said "Our need to make sense of the World around is so great that a lot of people would prefer a conspiracy theory to no theory at all."
