Amityville town center.A 4-year-old boy was found dead and alone in the Amityville apartment
he shared with his 6-year-old sister and two adults who were not their
parents. Cops received a 911 call on Wednesday, and when they showed up
to the home, the boy was there on the living room couch with visible wounds.
The autopsy is being performed tomorrow, but police say he had
noticeable signs of trauma. No adults were home when first responders
arrived at the rundown complex in Long Island, New York, and police aren't saying who allegedly called 911 since it's an integral part of their investigation.
If you're wondering why "Amityville" sounds so familiar, it was in this town 36 years ago where the Lutz family experienced terrifying paranormal activity
in the home they purchased that was previously occupied by Ronald
DeFeo, Jr., who shot and killed six members of his family in the same
Those events inspired a series of novels and two
films, one in 1979 and one in 2011, and has been the stuff nightmares
have been made of ever since.
So the fact that a 4-year-old has been found mysteriously dead without any adults around
in the same town in which all this alleged paranormal activity took
place is probably a little unsettling to some. Additionally, the
6-year-old sister is reportedly missing. Neither child attended school on Wednesday.
Police have one of the adults who lived at the home in custody, which
should hopefully bring about some answers. When initially questioned,
this person said the boy had been hurt in an accident.
I don't know about you, but I am very curious about who called 911
and why the authorities aren't releasing their theory. What kind of
person would find a 4-year-old dead or dying on a living room couch,
call the cops, then bolt? Plus, cops say the call definitely came from inside the home.
It's just not adding up. Maybe police aren't giving any more details
about the caller because they're not sure who, or possibly, what dialed 911.
Ghost stories aside, a little boy has been found dead, and I hope
whoever is responsible is brought to justice. It's a tragedy all around.
As a Long Islander, I can say that all the Amityville horror crap is BS. It's sad that a child died and that adults are covering something up, probably the fact that they killed him. But that does not mean anything paranormal happened.
I don't think it was a ghost or anything even close. I'd say the parents killed the boy, called 911 and left with the girl to finish their plans. I think it's sad that a child died, and that the writers of this website as well as others are trying to turn it into something it's not, a paranormal experience. I think the writers should be ashamed.
Let the child be at peace. Stop trying to refocus the attention.
