I found some crime scene photos of the Amityville muders perpetrated by Butch DeFeo. None of them are particularly graphic, but viewer discretion is advised. Click to enlarge.
I feel a real sense of tragedy when I see these pictures. It's hard to believe that someone could kill their entire family in cold blood. What could possibly drive someone to that? The only thing I can believe is insanity.
I still wonder about a few facts of this case. How did none of the family awaken to the gunshots? the DeFeo home wasn't very large, and the bedrooms were right next to each other. Is it possible they were drugged beforehand? I'll do more research and find the explanation the investigators came to, if they even have an explanation.
