The Haunting of Amityville Horror House

On November 13, 1974, Ronald DeFoe Jr. killed all six members of his family, including his parents and four siblings. He shot them with a .35 Marlin rifle, and each of the victims were found face down in their beds.

The victims included Defoe's father, Ronald Sr., 44, his mother Louise, 42, and siblings, Dawn, 18, Allison, 13, Marc, 12, and John Mathew, 9. They were all killed around 3 a.m. on November 13, 1974. DeFeo Jr. was 23 years old at the time of the murder. He was charged with six counts of 2nd degree murder in the month of November 1975.

Thirteen months after the murder, the Lutz family moved in, but they moved out just 28 days later. They said that they were haunted by paranormal activity. For example, they claimed to wake up every morning around 3 a.m., which was about the time the murder had happened.
