I did an interview for my radio show with Rick Moran, a journalist and investigator who was on the scene of the actual murders in Amityville. According to Rick, the whole "voices told me to do it" defense only came out of Butch Defeo after being questioned for an extended period. Non eof it appears to be true.
As per your post, the supposed indian burial or abandonment site was actually 70 miles from Amityville. There are also no records that Jerimiah Ketcham, the demonic torturer of indians from the book and the movie, ever lived in that area.
It seems to me that the entire Amityville Horror paranormal case hinges on the terribly exaggerated book bay Jay Anson and the verification of paranormal activity by Ed and Lorraine Warren, who based their porfessional lives on this case.
I'm quite sure Ronald DeFeo, Jr. did, in fact, hear voices, but they were the kind which come from being on drugs more often than not.
Whatever has been said in the book and/or movie about an Indian burial ground is news to me. I've neither seen the movie nor read the book. I have no clue who Jeremiah Ketcham was. Whatever this myth is that you're accusing me of mentioning is also something I've never heard about. I have simply drawn a conclusion that seems most plausible to me. I know nothing of anyone's claims that the house sits on land which Native Americans would have used to bury their mentally challenged people. Again, I was simply making a statement that has long seemed logical to me; without having the benefit of doing any research to determine if it's actually true.
The only bit of this story which I know to be true is what I mentioned at the start: Ronald Defeo, Jr. was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol the day he murdered his family, not a demon.
