I looked at this briefly last night - there are some interesting patterns and repetitions, but I am sure the g men have explored those routes. Nonetheless, an interesting challenge. :-)

It would be interesting to have the letters in a txt file or some such, as I am too lazy to transcribe them. :-/

There's another page, with what looks like a geographic coordinate.

Here is the second page. Although, I must admit, I did not transcribe it myself. I found it already typed out here and did not double check the letters. I do think that if we had a sample of other notes his family has of his as well as the solution (if they have that), it would probably be easier to figure out the notes. I'm *sure* the FBI has already thought of that and asked though, right?

I think he was on to some nefarious alien activities and so they took him out.

Mucho Gracias for the text and also the link.

FWIW, the bottom border of Missouri is at 36.5 deg N.

99.84 W puts one somewhere in neighboring Kansas.

not that this means anything, but may fuel some thoughts.

Also many many SE's

36.5 deg N. 99.84 W puts one somewhere in Kansas.

Interesting, because one of the comments I read on the Yahoo page yesterday said that this line:

36 MLSE 74 SPRKSE 29

looked to them like "36 miles E 70/40 spur to Kansas E onto 29." Anyhow, if you look through the comments now, several people point out things that appear to be directions.

Others are talking about the victim (who wrote the notes) being bipolar and on medication:

NCBE - No Change Before Episode

Start with the obvious, which is to check the "key" at the end. The time key is at the bottom of page 2 (which was written first and as a log of medications)

D-W-M-Y M,D,L = Day weekday month year: morning day or latenight
These are time designations that are critical to get your meds right with bipolars and are coded for privacy

ALPNTE GLSE - SE ERTE
VLSE MTSE - CTSE - WSE - FRTSE

This is an address and phone number for the Missouri Institute for Mental Health

But the general consensus is that it is personal shorthand, not any kind of cipher. I'm having fun putting together the pieces from all the amateur sleuths.

I'm thinking you're right about this. Don't we all have some sort of personal shorthand? Most personal shorthands are easier to read by others, but I have to admit that I've written my own notes to myself that I doubt hubby would be able to decipher at the "end." Most likely, if I'm found murdered with a code sheet in my pocket, it will be a list of places I need to go that day or that week and either things I need to buy or do at those locations. Right now, I have a note on my desk that says across the tops, "WM BB TG" and down the side is "GAC MM NT1" then a bunch of numbers. Have fun with that. ;)

Yeah, I disagree with some of that transcription: "29 KENOS" looks more like "29 KCNO" and maybe an "8" which looks to me like "hwy 29 Kansas City NOrth"

Okay, my real question is, why hasn't the FBI given this to the NSA? Of course, if they had, we would never be told, because there is No Such Agency...

Close! You got Wal Mart and Best Buy, but TG = Target. Sometimes it's TGT and sometimes it's TRG. So even my own shorthand changes from day to day.
