It was all over the news, announcing the death of Ronald DeFeo Jr. Many people either didn’t know about the man or didn’t care. However, on November 12, 1974, Ronald shot and killed each of his family members. It created an uproar, and the public was shocked at how the murders were done.
Ronald killed not only his parents but also his siblings.
When he was asked why he did it, Ronald stated that voices told him to do it. On the other hand, he had a history of being a heroin and LSD user and having an antisocial personality disorder. Also, there are speculations that Ronald and his father didn’t have a good relationship since his father was abusive.
Ronald said that he heard voices to kill his family, and while doing the murders, he knew what he was doing but couldn’t control himself.
It was as if he was possessed.
Either way, Ronald has put away in prison and stayed there until his death in March 2021. The murder of the DeFeo family has always been in topics of the paranormal and other conspiracy theories. Many people would visit the Amityville house to investigate; many claimed they have or have not experienced something.
However, two individuals decided to investigate the house and see if they could solve the mystery once and for all.
