The Real Life Amityville Horror House | America | Paranormal | Historical | IdaHaunts | BoiCGH

In 1974, 23 year old Ronald Joseph DeFoe Jr was sentenced for six consecutive counts of murder. He had tried to convince officers at the scene that a hitman was responsible for the crimes but the evidence revealed the truth. He was guilty and later confessed.

DeFoe (then known as Butch) had killed his parents and four siblings (two brothers and 2 sisters) in cold blood using a .35 caliber lever rifle at their home in Amityville, Long Island, New York. 

Tragically it was disclosed that the mother and one of the daughters were awake and fought for their lives.

These traumatic events inspired a book and big screen movie of the same name.

DeFoe ran into Henrys Bar not too far away from the home shouting "you've got to help me! I think my mother and father are shot!"

The pre-meditated nature of his crimes was immensely disturbing! DeFoe even took a bath and redressed after the frantic attacks, disposing of his blood drenched clothes. He explained in detail (his words...) "Once i started i just couldn't stop! It all happened so fast".

Jay Ansens book 'The Amityville Horror' is based on reported paranormal events which supposedly took place within the home from December 1975 to January 1976. He states there were intense paranormal forces within the home which sought to terrorise anyone who entered!

It is suggested that DeFoe was troubled and influenced from a young age by evil spirits from a nearby burial ground and that this process had initiated the killings.

Why not watch the movie as an ode to the upcoming Halloween season. We are sure you will agree it doesn't get much scarier than the Amityville!
