For those who do not know the history of David Berkowitz,
we give a small summary of who he is.

The killer wrote a letter to the police, and to a newspaper
columnist, taunting authorites with threats, declaring himself to be a servant of the devil, and calling himself the "Son
What the police did not understand at the time was, that
the name "Sam" referred to Samhain, which is the chief demon associated with the Satanic worship at Halloween, which is
known as the "devil's new year".
The papers called him the "44 caliber killer", because a
44 caliber bulldog revolver was used in the shootings.
When he was finally captured, he was sentenced to six

After serving ten years in prison, he was told of the love
of Jesus Christ for his soul, by another inmate who had

his soul clean, and made a whole new man.
David has been serving the Lord, rejoicing in the forgiveness
of Jesus Christ, since 1987. Even in a maximum security prison, he serves the Lord with joy and peace in the midst of
