Eddie Zigo helped authorities solve the case. After following leads from a traffic ticket, Zigo arrived outside the apartment house where Mr. Berkowitz lived and saw his Ford Galaxie. In its back seat, he spotted a duffel bag containing a rifle. In the glove compartment, he found a letter threatening to attack a disco. He was arrested the next day.
