Imagine that you were adopted and while searching for one of your birth parents you discover that an infamous serial killer whose identity has gone unsolved for more than 40 years is quite likely that long lost parent. Gary Stewart doesn’t have to imagine such a scenario because this is his story and a truly remarkable one at that.
Thirty-nine years after giving birth to Stewart, Judith Gilford finally found the courage to locate and contact her son. At the age of 14 Gilford ran off to New Orleans with 27-year-old Earl Van Best, Jr. Soon after, she found herself pregnant. The relationship between the two increased in volatility following the birth of their child. Gilford was devastated when Best revealed that he had abandoned their baby in a doorway in Baton Rouge. She secretly managed to leave him and flee back to her home in California with the promise to her mother that she would never speak of her son again.
The eventual reunion between mother and son was a joyful one but it also served to ignite Stewart’s desire to find his birth father, Earl Van Best. Searching for the truth took him on an incredible journey leading to a shocking discovery. Could it really be that Best was the Zodiac Killer who terrorized Californians in the late 1960’s? Get ready for some startling revelations in The Most Dangerous Animal of All. Learn the riveting details that link the mysterious past of Stewart’s biological father to the heinous crimes of the Zodiac Killer.
