This serial killer bedtime story goes out there to all of you rabid (no pun intended) David Berkowitz junkies who have been flooding us with emails since we started this feture on the website. We will be following this brief bedtime story up with additional Son of Sam segments in the upcoming months, so hang in there.
David Richard Berkowitz (born Richard David Falco; June 1, 1953), also known as Son of Sam and the .44 Caliber Killer, is an American serial killer and arsonist whose crimes terrorized New York City from July 1976 until his arrest in August 1977. Shortly after his arrest in August 1977, Berkowitz confessed to killing six people and wounding several others in the course of eight shootings in New York between 1976 and 1977; he has been imprisoned for these crimes since 1977. Berkowitz subsequently claimed that he was commanded to kill by a demon who possessed his neighbor's dog.
Sweet dreams, and may you forever remain Crazy 4 Crazies.
