'Son of Sam' Serial Killer David Berkowitz Won't Seek Parole in 2012



on Convicted serial killer David Berkowitz — who terrorized New York in the late 1970s, killing six people and wounding seven — will not seek parole during his next opportunity in May, Berkowitz told exclusively. In a two-page letter to, Berkowitz, also known as “Son of Sam,” said he has “no interest” in parole thanks to forgiveness by Jesus Christ. Berkowitz, 58, has previously been denied parole five times. “I have no interest in parole and no plans to seek release,” Berkowitz wrote in an Aug. 6 letter. “If you could understand this, I am already a ‘free man.’ I am not saying this jokingly. I really am. Jesus Christ has already forgiven and pardoned me, and I believe this.” Berkowitz, who killed six people and wounded seven others in 1976-77, was dubbed the “Son of Sam” after a note left at a crime scene read: “I am a monster. I am the Son of Sam.” After intense manhunts and widespread public panic throughout New York, he was arrested in 1977. New York legislators later passed the so-called “Son of Sam” law, which bars criminals from profiting from their crimes by selling their stories to publishers. He is currently serving six sentences of 25 years to life at the Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, N.Y., where he has been incarcerated for 34 years.
