This is a multi-part puzzle concerning the Zodiac Killer "Pines" card sent to the San Francisco Chronicle on March 22, 1971. I will ask it as a series of questions and hints, as I think it's too hard to solve the puzzle without them. The overall puzzle is "is the name of Edward Wayne Edwards in the card". Additional information: his birth name was Charles.
The first puzzle, is something easy, almost trivial, although even then, I have seen people stumped! Can you spot the "X"?
Second puzzle: can you see three monkeys? What noise do monkeys make?
Third puzzle: can you spot a wain?
Now a hint :
Consider the pasted strings to be flags or pointers and the pole star.
What is another name for the "Big Dipper"?
Finally, how does the card encode Edwards' name?
Good luck! I hope this is not too hard, but not quite trivial either. I didn't make this puzzle up, rather I got the solution from a woman who says she was forced to make the card in 1971, and it was explained to her.
