Forty years ago, the mysterious “Zodiac killer” killed at least six people, sending cryptic notes to local newspapers and spreading fear throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
The San Francisco Chronicle, in particular, received a number of letters from the serial murderer, who threatened to kill again if they didn’t publish his puzzling notes on the front page. The killer was never caught by police, though a key suspect in the case died in 1992
As Joe Strupp noted in this week’s article, a new film was released on Friday about the killings starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jake Gyllenhaal, who play the two former Chronicle newsmen involved in the case, reporter Paul Avery and cartoonist, Robert Graysmith.
