Can You Crack the FBI's Code?

[UPDATE March 30, 2011:  The FBI has coded notes posted today that were in the pocket of a 1999  murder victim and is asking the public for help decoding them.]

I've been spending time looking at the FBI webpages while working on another post. This is a copy of their page. The link takes you to the FBI code page with working links.

The page on ciphers is pretty interesting.

  2. Benito, Congratulations. I assumed this was going to be tricky, but you came back with an answer pretty fast. Way to go.

    Did you see a pattern in the relationship between the plain text alphabet and the crypto alphabet?
