Perhaps the administrators of Enigma project or maybe registrants of this project could help find the solution of an important secret message:

03/29/11

On June 30, 1999, sheriff’s officers in St. Louis, Missouri discovered the body of 41-year-old Ricky McCormick. He had been murdered and dumped in a field. The only clues regarding the homicide were two encrypted notes found in the victim’s pants pockets.

Despite extensive work by our Cryptanalysis and Racketeering Records Unit (CRRU), as well as help from the American Cryptogram Association, the meanings of those two coded notes remain a mystery to this day, and Ricky McCormick’s murderer has yet to face justice.

“We are really good at what we do,” said CRRU chief Dan Olson, “but we could use some help with this one.”

In fact, Ricky McCormick’s encrypted notes are one of CRRU’s top unsolved cases. “Breaking the code,” said Olson, “could reveal the victim’s whereabouts before his death and could lead to the solution of a homicide. Not every cipher we get arrives at our door under those circumstances.”


The meanings of the coded notes (above and below) remain a mystery to this day.

Can you give me a picture of the notes, a listing of places where McCormick was last seen, and the names of people close to him and seen with him previously?

ATTN: CREATOR OF ENIGMA BOINC SOURCE CODE

In brief: About 20 years ago, a man murdered more than 30 people, one at a time, in creative and horrific ways. He narrowly escaped arrest, and has never been identified or found. He did radio interviews, and sent 2 encoded letters about himself to newspapers... Only the first was ever cracked. The second, he claimed, contains information about himself.

The code is written in shapes and symbols, and is 1 page long. That's all we know about it.

Can you do what the American FBI and the police could not?

Let me know.
