In March 2011, the FBI released the code of a murder case from 1999:
"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."

It needs to be looked at as a person with dyslexia and cant read would see it. Things are sounded out and purposely rearranged so only he can read it. I remember as a child not knowing how to spell (I "ate" that) so instead I wrote I 8 that so I could sound it out. I believe it is the same concept here. I believe this is a sex list, and list of who he would want to have sex with.
X The Inspiration to decode (Who? and Where?)
A signature (from Latin: signare, "to sign") is a handwritten (and often stylized) depiction of someone's name, nickname, or even a simple "X" or other mark that a person writes on documents as a proof of identity and intent. The writer of a signature is a signatory or signer. Similar to a handwritten signature, a signature work describes the work as readily identifying its creator.
The signature usually appears at the end of any legal document
Then see the last line and word of note 2, is something like this: "XORLX" = " Mcorm(i)Ck"
Explanation: X = C, MC and CK. There is the part that is repeated, it is a typically shorthand solution. It reminded me that those who can not write signed with an X or something. O = O R = R L = M + Code Caesar B or +1 move. (I) this vowel is added. The vowels are deleted except those necessary to understand the message (a shorthand solution). X = C, MC and CK. + Again.
Remember on legal documents, an illiterate signatory can make a "mark" often an "X" but occasionally a personalized symbol.
The rest should be simple, like this:last line (note 2): "O-W-m-Y H8L XORLX" = "OWNY I AM MCORM(i)CK"
