ATHENS - He won accolades from peers and held a prestigious post at the University of Georgia, but liked to play by his own rules, was moody and aloof - and in the end, a cold-blooded killer.

That's the picture of George Zinkhan found in the pages of a Georgia Bureau of Investigation case file, released seven months after the UGA marketing professor shot and killed his wife and two men outside a community theater in Athens.

Investigators interviewed dozens of witnesses to stitch that profile together and try to get inside the 57-year-old killer's mind, looking for clues about where he might go.

Zinkhan shot himself in the head after the slayings. His body was in a shallow grave in the north Georgia woods.
