In June 1978, Bob Crane, the star of the sixties sitcom Hogan's Heroes but now reduced to playing on the dinner-theater circuit, was found bludgeoned to death in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he was appearing in a comedy titled Beginner's Luck. There was what appeared to be a telephone cord knotted around his neck; his nondescript apartment, rented for him by the theater, was filled with pornographic pictures and videotapes of himself and numerous women - some from Scottsdale, others from cities where the play had previously toured. The killer could have been the husband or boyfriend of any of them, but it could also have been Bob's estranged wife, Patti, or his best friend, John Carpenter, who appeared with Bob in several of the tapes. Bob was cooling toward Carpenter, friends had noticed, though they had palled around in Scottsdale

The real toll may have reached fifty. He was never caught. After Jack the Ripper and before Son of Sam there is only one name their equal in terror: the deadly, elusive, and mysterious Zodiac. Since 1963 the hooded mass murderer has terrified the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area with a string of brutal killings.

Nothing prepared Dullea for the answer
