If you've heard of the DeFeo murders, then no doubt you've heard that the family was killed at the hands of the oldest son who was under the influence of drugs, drink, or possibly a supernatural element. The DeFeos were in fact killed by the oldest son but that is about the only true part of the story. Author Ric Osuna spent years meticulously researching the story of the DeFeo murders and the story of the Amityville horror, the haunted house the family left behind. What he found is even more interesting, to me, than what the media reported. He explains how the murders likely happened, and how the justice system in New York failed Ronald DeFeo Jr. He also goes into some detail about the supposed haunting of the house and the story that it created. I found this book to be extremely informative, and one I would recommend to any true crime buff or anyone interested in the Amityville horror books.

Factual account of the Defeo family murder. This is a true crime book, not a horror.
