David Berkowitz aka Son of Sam


The Son of Sam murders took the lives of six innocent people in New York City during 1976-1977. David Berkowitz’s murderous rampage caused panic across New York City.

“Berkowitz’s final attack occurred in the early hours of July 31, 1977. He shot another couple, Stacy Moskowitz and Bobby Violante, in Brooklyn. Moskowitz later died, and Violante was blinded in one eye and lost most of the vision in the other from his injuries. Fortunately for the police, a witness noticed something at the scene that helped in cracking the case.” Source: biography.com
