IX(E) The Amityville Haunting [under construction]

In December 1976 George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into a house in Amityville, New York in which six members of the DeFeo family had been murdered. A seventh member, Ronald DeFeo, was convicted of the crimes. The Lutzes moved out less than a month later, claiming that the house was haunted by demonic spirits. The Lutzes told their story to a publisher and to writer Jay Anson who wrote the book, The Amityville Horror (1977), later made into a feature film.  Almost immediately others began to charge  that the Lutzes were perpetrating a hoax.
