A woman who claims her father is San Francisco’s infamous Zodiac Killer will be interviewed by police for the first time next week.
Southern California resident Deborah Perez
, who claims her late father Guy Hendrickson
is the man who terrorized the Bay Area in the late 60s and early 70s, says she will meet with Homicide Unit Lt. Michael Stasko on June 17.
Perez said that as a 7-year-old, she accompanied her father to two killings – one in Vallejo and one in San Francisco.
Perez, who’s now taking part in a documentary about the crime spree, said she wrote some of the killer’s letters – including a 1969 missive to attorney Melvin Belli. Her father died in 1983 and went through periods of mental illness, she said.
The glasses worn by slain San Francisco cab driver Paul Stine, which her father took from the crime scene, are still in her possession, Perez said. She hopes forensic testing will prove her claims.
Sgt. Lyn Tomioka, spokeswoman for the Police Department, said she couldn’t confirm the meeting but said investigators are anxious to talk to Perez.
“We certainly would like to talk to her and discuss more fully some of the statements she made at the press conference,” Tomioka said.
