Yes, the DeFeo murders and the haunting theory by George and Kathy Lutz, who also took the truth to the grave and their children aren't talking. But like I said it's difficult to discuss the haunting without bringing the murders up.

He was not obese. Medications, maybe so. Still doesn't explain the rest of the family?

Tho DeFeo maintains he had his sisters assistance, investigators denied it. Nothing to support his story.

Alright. I don't know what the criteria for obesity is but lets just say he was a "big guy" and on prescription weight medications.

Dawn Defeo had gunpowder on her nightgown suggesting she had fired a gun on that night. But there is also this explanation,

As Gpsma said there are murder victims found with unburnt powder on them who never touched the gun. Particularly can happen when the gun was fired from close range, which in this case it most certainly was.

Such a sad and horrible story, but plenty of people out there still trying to make a buck off of it by coming up with weird scenarios. The facts really do not back up these stories.

The bottom line is that one really screwed up dope addict went wacko.
And it most certainly was in a struggle.

Why didn't her finger prints show up on the gun? Don't you think that odd?

Investigators of the crime scene and prosecution said DeFeo acted alone.

The other theory and accounts are given by Ron DeFeo, two book authors and their investigators. Believe what you will.

Ronnie wrestled the gun from her hands after she possibly shot a family member.

From the link,


Nevertheless, evidence also supports the claims that more than one gun and killer were involved in the DeFeo murders.


But then again all the bullets in the bodies were from the same 35 Marlin rifle.


Atleast the 7th body mystery is now solved. Viewer discretion adviced.
