In my quest to find articles on all the victims listed in Graysmith's Zodiac I found articles on these two murders.

One victim is listed as Cathy Fechtel in Graysmith's book. The actual name of the victim is Cathy Pethtel. There is a death record for her in that name with the correct date of death. The other victim, Michael Shane is a woman! I was not able to find a death record for her in that name though. (I posted this over at ZK and TF was able to come up with the correct spelling of Michael Shane's name, it is Shain, Thanks again TF)

I had a good amount of talks with and picked the brain of a Retired Alameda Sheriff dept Detective, and he was looking into the June 67 double murder in Alameda county that he thinks may have been a Z murder. See this thread:
http://zodiackillersite.forummotion.com/t169-june-8-1967-alameda-county-zodiac-victims
He and I were discussing cold unsolved murders in his county, especially of couples or people killed with guns, and the topic of Pethel & Shane came up. He mentioned that there were a couple people that thought it may be z related, but that they also had an eye witness(s) that saw these 2 girls walking down the road just before they were murdered in the early morning hours. A car had stopped to talk to them and this car had one or more black men in it. They think that these men may have been part of one of those radical black groups. If I can find any of the notes I took, I will post em.

morf, you are correct. The police were seeking a black man in connection with the murders of Michael Shain and Cathy Pethtel on December 3, 1973.

Sandy and I have been to the crime scene which is at Interstate 580 by Pleasanton. It is open to speculation whether or not these murders were linked to the Zodiac because the Zodiac mailed a letter from Pleasanton on March 13, 1971.
