Serial killer, David Berkowitz shot and
killed 6 people in the 19703, during a
series of random attacks. Before he was
caught, he would mock the police by
sending them letters and promising them
that there would be many more murders.
After his capture, he was highly
publicised by the media, and achieved
worldwide notoriety with his nickname
'Son of Sam’.
Berkowitz was also well-known for his
bizarre statements. When detectives
asked him why he had committed these
crimes, one of the explanations he gave
was: ”The demons wanted my penis.”
