The symbol used by the Zodiac Killer to sign his correspondence. The Zodiac killer was a notorious thrill killer.

A thrill killing is premeditated murder committed by a person who is not necessarily suffering from mental instability, and does not derive sexual satisfaction from killing victims, or have anything against them, and sometimes does not know them, but is instead motivated by the sheer excitement of the act.
