Belinda and Braydon discuss the interesting history and murders of America's most talked about haunted house in Amityville, New York.
We've all heard about it and of course we've seen the Ryan Reynolds 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror at least once. 112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, New York is famously known for the six person murder that went on inside one November morning. Ronald Defeo Jr killed his parents and four siblings at 3:15am on the 13th of November in 1973. He claims that there were voices telling him to "kill them all", so he did just that. Some may say that he was just a troubled young adult. But his attorney argued a plea of insanity due to the voices Defeo claims to have heard. Regardless, Defeo was sentenced to life in prison.
Just 13 months after the murders George and Kathy Lutz bought the house for $80,000 and moved in with Kathy's three young children. They lasted less than one month in the home before leaving due to fear of safety for their family. Even a priest ran out of the home after hearing a voice yell "Get out!". There are claims that the Lutz made up the entire story for a book deal. If so, then how did they pass a lie detector test?
Soon after the Lutzs left, The Warrens visited the home where both Ed and Lorraine had supernatural experience. The dark history of the home and land where soon revealed. Once land to native Indians where they would keep the sick and insane in an enclosure to die. Then home to John Ketchum who practiced black magic and even had his body buried on the land. The Warrens stated that there is a strong presence of evil in the home and by the history we can see why.
Classic Belinda scares herself making a scary voice.
