TRUE CRIME

On this episode of Those Conspiracy Guys we talk about the Son of Sam who terrorised New York City in the summer of 1977 with indiscriminate shootings and mysterious serial letters to the police. David Berkowitz, who originally known as the .44 Caliber Killer, shot 13 people and killed 6 in what was known as The Summer of Sam, and sparked the biggest man hunt in the history of New York.

Berkowitz claimed that he was instructed by a demon, who lived inside his neighbors dog, to carry out these shootings and this and the letters sent to police, taunting them, made The Son of Sam a genuine threat to the safety of everyone in New York City at the time. This part of the story is just a popular sliver of this strange and intriguing case; and the history of mental illness, satanic cults, mind altering substances and a severely dysfunctional home life is more tangible than a demon dog.
