When Evil Came to Town: The Son of Sam Murders
In Episode 76
This is the first True Crime Brewery commissioned podcast!
Thank you to Todd Feitl—a listener so fascinated by true crime (and beer!) that he paid us to do a TCB episode on the Son of Sam murders. The Son of Sam shootings back in the 1970s terrorized the citizens of New York and its Burroughs. After 8 attacks, a 24-year-old loner named David Berkowitz was arrested. Berkowitz confessed, but were these crimes really solved? Since his incarceration, Berkowitz has changed his story with no interest in being set free. And some very intelligent, knowledgeable people have questioned the story of Berkowitz as a lone gunman. For one thing, eyewitness descriptions from the shootings did not always match Berkowitz. And then there are the conspiracy theories which put a nationwide satanic cult at the core of these and other crimes. Join us at the quiet end as we relive the Son of Sam murders and examine multiple theories. This round is on Todd!
