On January 19th 2012 a handgun matching the description of a long lost murder weapon from the infamous 1974 DeFeo slayings was recovered from an Amityville, New York water body. On November 13, 1974, police discovered six members of the DeFeo family - father, mother and four children - had been shot to death in their beds while they apparently slept. Eldest son, twenty-three year old Ronald "Butch" Defeo Jr. was solely convicted of the homicides and is currently serving six consecutive life sentences.
Over 37 years since the crime, Aqua Survey Inc., located in Flemington, NJ, was approached by documentary film maker Ryan Katzenbach of Katco Media to perform a high-tech survey to locate a rumored second murder weapon from the Amityville murders. Katzenbach is currently producing a documentary entitled Shattered Hopes: the True Story of the Amityville Murders.
