Ending
If you've read Zodiac by Robert Graysmith, you've "read" the movie already. We meet cartoonist Robert, working at the San Francisco Chronicle, when the first murders occur in July 1969 and a letter claiming responsibility comes into the newspaper. Crime beat reporter Paul is the lead reporter on the story, and slowly lets Robert into the reporting investigation, though they're never really "in" with SFPD inspectors David and William. As the case calms down, Robert develops a desire to solve the case, though it puts his newly budding relationship with Melanie on shaky ground (Robert is divorced, and met her on a blind date amidst the active Zodiac investigation era). The investigation goes cold, and the cops start to focus on suspect Leigh, though handwriting experts discount his being the guy. William asks to be transferred to Fraud (no after-hours calls) a few years down the road, and David is helping Robert with hints and clues along the way, until Robert develops his own theory of Leigh being the best suspect, with his own trail of circumstantial evidence. Melanie leaves Robert, and he publishes his Zodiac best-selling novel. Cops re-interview Leigh, but he dies of a fatal heart attack before that takes place; there's no more letters to cops or heavy breathing calls to Robert any longer. The Zodiac killer doesn't strike again, David retires from SFPD, is cleared from suspicion of faking one of the notes, and while SFPD have closed the case, it remains open in the other three police departments that have Zodiac killings.
