In Episode 69 we go inside the world’s most famous haunted house — Amityville — with one of the three people still alive today who knows exactly what happened. On November 13, 1974, Ronald Butch DeFeo Jr. walked into his house at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York, and shot his two parents, his two brothers, and two sisters dead. He was convicted of the crime and still sits in jail today. The house sat empty for over a year and the price plummeted. In December of 1975, the Lutz Family: George, Kathy, and Kathy’s children Daniel, Melissa, and Christopher, all from a previous marriage moved in. For the next 28 days the family experienced haunting events that would eventually make this home one of the most famous haunted houses in the world today. The Amityville Horror, as it was known has been the subject of a lot of controversy over the years. There have been books written about it, movies made, and the debate continues to rage on. Tonight we hear from Christopher Quaratino (Lutz), who was seven years old when his family lived in the infamous house. We hear about what really happened and how those events have affected his life ever since. Tune in!
