The Zodiac (Part One: Vallejo)

On December 20th, 1968, two teenagers - David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen - were going out on their first date. The two were natives to the Vallejo area of California, and spent their evening driving around, before settling into a cozy lover's lane along Lake Herman Road. There, they were shot and killed by an unknown assailant.

For months, the investigation into the shooting of David and Betty faltered... until a similar crime took place a handful of miles away.

When Darlene Ferrin and Michael Mageau were shot at Vallejo's Blue Rock Springs Park on July 4th, 1969 - and a mysterious individual called police dispatchers to claim credit just minutes later - it officially kicked off one of America's most infamous criminal investigations...
