This auction is for a letter from New York's "Son of Sam" serial killer Mr. David Berkowitz. Between 1976 to 1977, Mr. Berkowitz, known as the Son of Sam and the .44 Caliber Killer, committed a series of eight separate shooting attacks in the City of New York, killing six people and wounding seven. On 8/10/1977 Mr. Berkowtiz was arrested. He would ultimately confess to the "Son of Sam" crime spree, receiving six life sentences with the possibility of parole. Berkowitz claimed to have been obeying orders from his neighbor's dog, coupled with conspiracy theories and Satanic overtones. The case was largely celebrated in the press, capturing attention to present day. The celebrity status achieved byBerkowitz inspired the Son of Sam Law, which was an effort to keep criminals from profiting financially from the notoriety of their cases and crimes. That legislation would be turned over, citing U.S. Constitutional rights. Berkowtiz has since become a Judeo-Christian, taking on the moniker "Son of Hope." The letter is one typed page, dated 9/28/2012, and hand signed, "David." Enclosed is an print out detailing Berkowitz's "conversion to Christ." The original mailing envelope is postmarked 10/2/2012. Message me with any questions you might have. Thanks for having a look-see.
