The Devil I Know
My Haunting Journey with Ronnie DeFeo and the True Story of the Amityville Murde rs
In November 1974, 23-year-old Ronnie DeFeo was convicted of murdering his entire family. Decades later, he was haunted by a terrifying demon from his past. But no one wanted to listen.
Except one woman.
For years, as the legend of the Amityville Horror murders were retold in print and film, DeFeo withdrew, growing more bitter as his twisted celebrity status increased.
Then he received a note from Brooklyn psychic Jackie Barrett, saying she had been made aware of his presence by an unknown force. She didn't know if he was guilty, innocent, or insane--but she sensed that he was besieged by a fearsome evil.
As Jackie began to talk to Ronnie DeFeo and discover the truth, she realized something startling: She hadn't been guided toward him merely to help him find salvation. There was someone else whose soul needed saving. Someone much closer.
Here, in her own words, Jackie Barrett reveals the details of her astonishing relationship with Ronnie DeFeo, and, for the first time, his revelation of what really happened in that terrible night.
