Son of Sam Claims he is Already free

ALBANY – Notorious “Son of Sam” serial killer David Berkowitz has no interest in getting out of jail.

Berkowitz said prison is “not a good place” but he has no plans to seek his release because God has already made him a “free man” by forgiving him.

“Jesus Christ has already forgiven and pardoned me,” Berkowitz wrote in a recent letter to a Fox News reporter. “He has given me a whole new life, which I do not deserve.”

I do not believe this man has found religion. I had a friend who did time in the same prison and he said that Berkowitz was called Berzerkowitz by staff and inmates alike. Although my friend did not know Berkowitz personally he did know people in his ‘ministry’ as well as ‘friends’ of David’s and they all said the religion aspect was a joke, a way to eventually get out.

Berkowitz added that “while society will never forgive me, God has.”

Society will and should not forgive or forget your crimes.

The famed serial killer is serving six consecutive 25-years-to-life sentences at the maximum-security Sullivan Correctional Facility in the Catskills for a string of killings that terrorized the city during the 1970s.

Berkowitz, a former Yonkers resident, has been denied parole five times and has been in prison 34 years.

He is eligible for a sixth parole hearing next year
