Zodiac Killer's code cracked?  JUL 22 2011

Corey Starliper believes he's cracked the code of the 340-character cipher sent to the San Francisco Chronicle by the Zodiac Killer *and* that it identifies the killer.

Starliper split his work into two sessions of 6 hours and 3 hours. When he was done, he had decoded the following text:
KILL/SLF/DR/HELP/ME/KILL/MYSELF/GAS/CHAMBER/
AEIOUR/DAYS/QUESTIONSABLE/EVERYY/WAKING/
MOMENT/IM/ALIVE/MY/PRIDE/LOST/I/CANT/GO/ON/
LIVING/IN/THIS/WAY/KILLING/PEOPLE/I/HAV/KILLD/
SO/MANY/PEOPLE/CANT/HELP/MYSELF/IM/SO/
