‘Son of Sam’ Has Admirers

Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 10:32 AM


“Son of Sam” serial killer David Berkowitz has been befriended by admirers from surprisingly diverse walks of life as he serves a 25-year-to-life sentence in upstate New York.

Berkowitz was arrested in the summer of 1977 after killing six people and wounding seven others in New York City.

Now his “circle of admirers, to a great degree, is made up of evangelical Christians . . . who have been moved by Mr. Berkowitz’s story of becoming a born-again Christian 23 years ago, and many of them have sought to publicize his account of redemption,” The New York Times reports.

Among those who regularly communicate with Berkowitz are a Colorado radio producer, a Christian TV host, a musician and prison minister, a Houston mayoral aide, a lawyer, and a retired teacher.

Berkowitz has also received letters from people around the world.
