Ted Cruz is a politician that is the Senator of Texas. He also ran for president in 2016. The Idea of Ted Cruz being the Zodiac Killer started out as a half-hearted joke and quickly spread on the internet vie memes and social media.


  • Cruz was born in 1970, and the first Zodiac murder occured in 1969, making it physically impossible for Cruz to be the killer. This also means that he couldn't have committed the murders in the 70's as he would have been a little kid. Sketches of the Zodiac show him as a man in 30's or 40's not a baby.
  • The theory began as a joke.

Although, one must admit the composite sketch looks fairly similar to Ted Cruz.
