The Baltimore Sun follows the life story of Frank Zito, a mentally ill resident of Centreville, whose psychiatric problems went unchecked until he killed a police officer and a deputy sheriff. Zito has been nuisance and threat to his neighbors for many years, the story reveals. The Sun reports on a number of cases in which "Crazy Frank' assaulted his mother, stalked women, or exposed himself. Though Zito was arrested many times, he always returned in a few days, instead of being taken to a psychiatric hospital.
