NEW YORK (AP) — For a year, David Berkowitz terrorized New York.
The papers called him the “.44 Caliber Killer.” In taunting notes to police and a journalist, he called himself “Mr. Monster,” the “Son of Sam.”
This killer went to the same high school that I graduated from, Christopher Columbus HS in the Bronx, NY. He’s a little older than I, I did not know him in school. A friend of mine from those days has two older brothers, one of whom was in the same home room class as the Son of Sam. I wrote a post about the closing of my high school here.
Sweet high school memories – not!
