‘Bullit’. ‘dirty Harry’. ‘star wars’. ‘Zodiac’. Do you know what they have in common these four titles? Because all of them were under the influence of David Ramon “Dave” Toschi, inspector of the police department of San Francisco.
There he served for thirty-five years, twelve of them dedicated to the department of homicides, where he spent most of his hours trying to solve one of the most infamous of the dark history american: the crimes of the murderer of the zodiac.
Dave Toschi was born in San Francisco and, after graduating from High School, Galileo continued with his duty to fighting in the Korean War with the Army. On his return to San Francisco in 1953, he was hired at the Police Department and remained there until his retirement in 1985.

Yeah, sure you’ve seen ‘Zodiac’. It is likely that you have done this several times, and in all of them you may have noticed the size and the elegance of the infallible Mark Ruffalo with his bow tie and his jackets. Effectively: is Dave Toschi. On hearing of his death, the actor he recalled on Facebook his intense work with the man that I could never catch Zodiac yet, according to his own words, being sure at 100%.
“Dave Toschi has just died. What I played in the Zodiac and I was able to spend a couple of intense days with him. I had four pages of questions to ask. I spent a day with him in his work and we have dinner together the next day. As a police officer, naturally suspected me, but over time we found many coincidences in our Italian roots and our work ethic. I actually admire him not only for what he had done as police killings, but by the sense of responsibility that he had for the welfare of the citizen, its commitment to the rule of law and the pain that I felt for not having captured never the Murderer of the zodiac.
He was a true hero tragic. He lived an exemplary life and was obsessed by his experience in the research and the political nature of the case. I am honored to have known him, albeit briefly, by having interpreted and I am grateful for the trust that I deposited. Condolences to his family and to his daughter who clearly worshipped, and spoke with so much affection”.
“Always parking exactly where you parked the car that night,” said Toschi of the San Francisco Chronicle in 2009. “I Look around the intersection and I wonder what the hell happened. Do we cover all the routes? Did we leave something at the scene of the crime? whatwhy don’t we catch that man? the I Ended up with a bleeding ulcer for that case. It still torments me. Always will”.
