Movie Update — 18 Comments

    • Still working on film project. Mum continues to be the word on DNA…for the moment. I will update as soon as I am able to do so! Thank you for asking.

      • Gary. Just watched a new investigative tv special on the zodiac killer. Channel wral at 10pm est 14 Nov 2017. That program is trying to connect a Sullivan to the zodiac. Continues next Tuesday same time. Is your research connected to this TV show? What I saw so far is in opposition to your research. What is your take on this?

        • Hi Karen,

          My work is not associated with this History Channel Documentary. This History Channel Documentary will not ‘solve’ the case, as there was one Zodiac Killer and he was Earl Van Best, Jr. There will be more information regarding my case in the coming months. Stay tuned.
          Thank you for your comments.

  1. I am just touched by this story .amd I have not even read the book. I watched the movie then documentary on the killer then that led to adopted son video on you tube .. and it’s like the best worst thing.. I mean if there could be a movie with all of this .. I think yes it could open up a lot but people could have closure and answers family could finialy rest and new family start .this story is a thriller a drama it’s amazing

    • Hi Jamie,
      Thank you for your comments. I too believe that the entirety of my story would be a great movie, and what a great thing it would be for the family members of the victims to finally have closure. I hope you enjoy the book as much as you did the interview on YouTube.

  2. I heard your story on NPR recently and could hear the pain in your heart when you spoke about your Dad dropping you off. It seems like such a heartless act, especially after having kids of your own and knowing what unconditional love for your children is suppoesed to feel like. After hearing your story, I had a different perspective on why your father did what he did and I hope that you are open to hearing it. Possibly, as a father, he loved you so much that he gave you up. He knew the severe emotional feelings that he was having and, knowing what he was capable of doing, gave you up in the quickest, most earnest way he knew how to do it. I dont think he gave you up out of hate, I believe for you that he gave you up out of deep love. After all, look at the beautiful life that you created for yourself despite the odds.

    • Thank you for reaching out. You make a very good point, one others have suggested to me. I couldn’t agree with you more about the beautiful life I have, not that I created it, but the life my Stewart family afforded me by giving me the ‘nurture’ of love, faith, hope and forgiveness. My wife specifically steers me in that direction whenever those feelings of abandonment begin to surface, which they do often. The best remedy for me is to simply not think about it, but as you can imagine, that’s difficult to do. Thank you again for taking the time to comment.

  3. What will you do if DNA is never confirmed? Or if yours is ruled out completely? Isn’t it odd that someone so well taught in writing and hieroglyphics (I’m not sure if that is the correct term, I’m sorry) has such sloppy handwriting? I know that most highly intelligent people do, but he had practiced from such a young age. Do you have book tours scheduled? I have questions and don’t want to bombard this page, but I don’t see a good place for these questions. Do you have input on Judy’s marriage to Rotea Gilford?

    • Hi Amanda,

      Thank you for your questions. My hope was always to disprove my suspicions about my father being the Zodiac killer, so if my DNA is one day ruled out, I’ll be free of this forever. Outside of the Zodiac killer world, I do have a very busy, but normal life and one day, I’ll completely walk away from this story whether the DNA is confirmed or not. The known Zodiac handwriting spans a wide spectrum of ‘sloppiness’, from very neat in the Red Phantom letter, to very sloppy, the first letters to the SF Chronicle, Vallejo Times Herald, and the SF Examiner, to whatever category you would place the 340 Cipher in. To me, it just indicates that the Zodiac was capable of writing in any style he chose. No ‘tours’ scheduled, just several speaking engagements throughout the year.
      Thanks again for taking the time to write!

  4. I am currently watching the History Channel series on the Zodiac killer that features multiple teams and a super computer. Any thoughts?

  5. Hi Mr Stewart. I just finished your book. I had bought it after seeing a picture of your dad run next to the Zodiac killer sketch in some news and had found it pretty conclusive too. If and when I launch my literary channel, it would a good book to talk about when talking about true crime. It would be in French though but if I do manage to do so I’ll make sure to contact you. I really hope that one day, the DNA speaks the truth so that all people involved can get closure. If I, someone so remote to the case can get so emotionally concerned by the lack of final period to this story, I can’t even imagine what it must be for you and the victims… In the meantime, you can be proud to have written a very fascinating book, not only about a son finding his father but also about how you found yourself even more so. I’m glad for you that you got to grow in a loving family. Anyway, good luck for the movie.

    • Hi Ryan,
      Thanks for your question. The DNA test results are not available publicly just yet. As soon as we can, we will release everything. Thanks for your patience.

  6. Hi Gary, I really enjoyed the book. I was really interested in the early stages of marriage between Rotea Gilford and your mother Judy.

    You mentioned that Gilford had an apartment during his divorce from Patricia in the Haight and the courtship with your mother. But where was the house they shared after marriage when you refer to Rotea’s mother Viola living in a first floor apartment of their home?

    I love any details that can help better paint the scene of the time. Thanks!
