    Why the Hunt for the Zodiac Killer Turned Into a

    While a couple of detectives remained on the case, the Zodiac wouldn’t write to the Chronicle again until Jan. 30, 1974, when he promised, “if I do not see this note in your paper, I will do something nasty, which you know I’m capable of doing.”

He admitted it was “a foolish thing to do.” (He denied ever writing a letter purported to be from the Zodiac.)
