E64: The Amityville Horror

May 20, 2019

On November 13, 1974, 23-year old Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered his father, mother, and four siblings late in the night as they slept soundly at their home in Amityville, Long Island. 13 months later, George and Kathleen Lutz and their three children moved into the same house, allegedly experiencing 28 straight days of unexplained terror that would spawn an iconic novel and a famous series of horror films. In the third part of our four-part hauntings series, we take a look at the events that transpired at 112 Ocean Avenue, break down the aftermath of the alleged hauntings, as well as discuss theories about it being a hoax.
