From AP News: "Lutz became famous after moving his new wife and three children into a Dutch colonial on Long Island in 1975. About a year earlier, six members of the DeFeo family had been shot and killed there. Ronald DeFeo Junior, the eldest son, was convicted of the murders.

The Lutzes lived in the home for 28 days before being driven out -- by the spirits of the DeFeos, according to Lutz's account."

The family's stories became the source for Jay Anson's 1977 book, The Amityville Horror, along with a 1979 film, sequels and a high-profile 2005 remake. The remake sparked a bitter lawsuit.
