Pierre and Andrew Bidou

Pierre BidouPierre Bidou was a police officer with the Benicia Police Department in 1968. He investigated the murders of David Faraday and Betty Lou Jensen - the first Bay-Area victims of the Zodiac killer. Pierre gave an interesting interview about the circumstances surrounding the murders on the director's cut of Fincher's Zodiac DVD.

Later in his career Pierre went on to become Chief of Police of the Benicia Police Department. Interestingly, his son Andrew also went on to become the Chief of Police in the same department. This article tells the story of Pierre and Andrew as well as a similar father-son pair. There's not really much to be gleaned regarding the Zodiac. But, it's not bad as far as human interests stories go...
