SFPD did not, and do not, have Paul Stine's tripsheet, or "waybill," the record of his fares for the night. Chronicle reporter Keith Power wrote an article in the Chronicle strongly suggesting that he himself took the waybill from the cab:
Yet, as of October 23 at least, SFPD were convinced Stine picked up his killer in front of the Fairmont Hotel, four blocks NORTH of the Pinecrest:
Given that he didn't seem to give a hoot about being left out of Zodiac 1986 completely, I'm sure he has zero interest in talking about it. I'm willing to bet that Professor Horan has contacted many of the main non-victim persons touching the Zodiac case.
The person I would really like to speak to Professor Horan is Richard Hoffman.
I have seen some people claim that the book on the pavement in some of the crime scene photo is the tripsheet but it seems far more likely it is simply the ROAD ATLAS seen in one of the other photos. I believe the tripsheet would have been a clipboard. Would Keith Power have carried a clipboard for writing notes for articles ? If he took the tripsheet, it would have been a way for him to carry it unnoticed, and perhaps even conceal a piece of shirt.

Exactly. You know what? I never noticed the big "blank" area in the middle of that puddle of blood. Did they let his ass hit the ground?
Also, if you look closely at the middle photo, on the dashboard directly above the radio, you can see the corner of the clipboard with several sheets of paper. THAT'S the fare log/tripsheet/waybill, exactly where you'd expect to find it, I suggest. And exactly within reach of the person who opened the drivers door back at the parking garage, reached in, and took the fare log. (The white arrow is pointing to Stine's glasses on the floorboard.)
