For all those mystery/puzzle cipher sleuths...

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.”

Ooh - I always wanted to work for the FBI. Do you reckon they've tried turning it upside down and reading it in a mirror?

I know from the caches i've set with codes , if its a code he's made up , there may be no rhyme or reason to it, no cryptex,or decryption sequence other than the one he thought of at the time.
Sadly i love to use codes, but am very bad at decrypting them without a clue.
will be interedted to see if anyone can find a clue....
Does April 1st have anything to do with this ?
