Amityville Horror:
A Real True Haunting?

On the website, www.amityvillemurders.com, by Ric Osuna, argues that the Amityville house was truly haunted. The author of the website gives many good argumentative details on why it is haunted and makes you view and realize that the hauntings that are occurring are evident. When I was first logging into the website, it started by giving the background of the author. Ric Osuna studied the house for over three years and actually took the time to investigate the cases behind the murders, made it stand out from other websites.

Agreeing that the house hauntings are still happening, that people be compelled to take the time to investigate and witness what is occurring in the DeFeos home.
