112 Ocean Avenue, Amityville, NY - affectionately named "High Hopes" by its owners ... soon to become known to millions around the world as the site of the Amityville horror.
On the morning of November 13, 1974, six members of a prosperous Italian family would be found dead there, shot to death by a .35 caliber Marlin rifle. On that morning, Ronnie DeFeo, 23, would get up, shave, shower, dress and go to work, apparently oblivious to the carnage behind him. This is the story of what happened in that house and the court case that followed - a model of investigation and prosecution to rival Helter Skelter ... a true story more chilling and macabre than any account of ghosts or hauntings could ever be.
