Retired, 1982- Brooklyn South Homicide; 60 Squad; 73 Squad; 73 Pct
FATHER, FRIEND, DETECTIVE
On Sunday, February 20, 2011, the world lost a good man.
Known by many as the Detective who caught The Son of Sam, I knew Mr. Zigo as the father of a friend. I am honored to be able today to call him a friend.
At 84 years old, surrounded by his family, Ed passed away, succumbing to cancer. May his family recall fond memories of their father, grandfather, husband. And all that ever had the pleasure of his company will recall greatness in a man that lived his life doing the right thing.
An inspiration to more than he ever knew. As a Detective. As a person.
When it was used with Edward Zigo, FIRST GRADE was not a rank, it was a definition of the man. God bless you, Mister Zigo.
