"The FBI's investigation into the Zodiac Killer remains open and unsolved," the FBI told Fox News. "Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, and out of respect for the victims and their families, we will not be providing further comment at this time."

The Zodiac murdered five confirmed victims in the San Francisco bay area between December 1968 and October 1969, although the Zodiac claimed to have murdered 37 victims, and has been linked to several other cold cases.
