On November 13, 1974, six members of the DeFeo family were found shot to death in their colonial home in Amityville, New York.
These brutal murders were committed by the oldest son, Robert DeFeo, Jr. His story has changed over the years to why he murdered his family.
Stories have varied from hearing voices and demons to family abuse. He has even said his sister (one of the victims) helped him murder his family.
A year later, the Lutz family moved into the house and they were well aware of the tragic history.
However, they only lived in the house for 28 days. They claimed to be terrorized by demonic forces and they were so scared, they left and never returned, leaving all of their possessions behind.
In 1977, a book, “The Amityville Horror: A True Story,” was written to document their horrific experiences.
Did George and Kathy Lutz really encounter paranormal activity or was it all a hoax? There are many theories and I’m not sure what to think. But what I do know is a family was brutally murdered, over 35 years ago, in a small picturesque town called Amityville . And forever, this town, will be known for that horrific crime.
Lots of Paranormal Love,
