Zodiac 340 Cracked

The Zodiac Killer's 340 cipher has been cracked after 51 years.

One of the guys in the cracking-team started a really good series on YouTube earlier this year (although he has been working on this cipher for 14 years), that i thoroughly recommend. Episode 5 is the final solve from this week. Stunning.

In reply to Shani:

Fascinating - clever guys! Intuitively, the "life is" plain text is inserted in the wrong place, I would guess the last two lines to be:

"I am not afraid because I know that my new life will be an easy one in paradice [sic], life is death"

In reply to AndyC:

Yeah. I think the numerous mistakes in both 408 and 340 ciphers show Zodiac wasn't that skilled with codes. His intentional spelling mistakes do hint at him being reasonably well researched.
