Deborah Perez's claims that her adoptive father Guy Ward Hendrickson was the Zodiac Killer are probably part of a rather sad pattern of behavior. What she surely may not want anyone to know at this point is the famous American whom she claims was her real father. Perez made these claims to more than one reputable, reliable source.
Chris Sorensen is the former mayor of Norco, CA and is currently a member of the Corona, CA Chamber of Commerce. Reached by phone, the amiable real estate and banking expert told me that about a month before they parted ways business-wise, Deborah Perez warned him of some kind of impending media circus.
She then told him that she was the illegitimate daughter of President John F. Kennedy.
Sorensen wrote her off as a kook. When he saw the kind of coverage regional and then national media had afforded Perez's claims, Sorensen says he was shocked. Like me, he wondered "how legitimate news agencies could run with this story without doing any background checking into the source."
