Who is Robert Graysmith?

Robert Graysmith is an American author and former cartoonist best known for his works on the ‘Zodiac Killer case’. For more than 17 years, he made use of every single opportunity to exploit the tragic case for his individual benefit. In his books, he claimed to have recognized one of America's most mysterious serial killers though he did not provide any credible proofs. Well, the true crime author’s books about the unsolved case have been broadly discredited by researchers, critics, witnesses, investigators, and others. However, his fictional accounts have served as the base for several movies, including David Fincher’s motion pictures ‘Zodiac’ and ‘Se7en.’ On a personal note, Graysmith is a two-time divorcee and currently resides in California. The cartoonist-turned-crime writer aka “Zodiac scavenger” is also active on the social networking website Facebook, with thousands of fans and followers.
