What do you think of when you hear the name Amityville? Yes, it’s a village on Long Island, but what does it invoke in the mind of the average American?
Large or small, most towns are known for something, but often it doesn’t become a national phenomenon that forever defines the town in infamy.
Amityville joined the ranks of American towns like Pearl Harbor, Waco, and to an extent, Roswell, as being a place that the country associates with a strange or horrible event that happened there. The problem is that no one really knows what that event actually was. Was the Amityville house truly haunted? Or was it just a couple of crazy people inventing things?
Up until now, there have been only two witnesses to the Amityville events who have come forward. Both have now passed on. Thirty-five years after the fact, most people would think that there’s nothing more to be said on the subject, nothing new to be added. Those people would be wrong.
Because now, one of the hidden witnesses to the Amityville haunting has finally emerged out of the shadows.
