112 Ocean Drive Amityville, N.Y.

This investigation took place in Reading area that was most intriguing. We received a call from a client being haunted by the victim of a murder that happened in 1974 in a completely different area. The murder victim was coming to him telling him she didn't do it. From what we were told, this girl received some blame for the crime in question, and since she is no longer alive, cannot state her innocence. While our client did not know this woman well, they had crossed paths in life, and seemed to have some cosmic connection. We have heard of this kind of thing taking place before, where someone is haunted even though they are they least likely candidate. It is rare, and sometimes hard to grasp, but regardless, we took on the case.

In an effort to research the case, we decided to obtain some information about the murder case prior to our investigation. We figured the more information we had, the better chance we had of reaching this girls spirit. Our hope was to possibly dig up some old newspaper articles or something with a little information on what happened. Being that this murder took place so long ago, we figured we were taking a long shot, but it was worth a try anyways. We asked the client where the murders took place, to which he replied 112 Ocean Ave Amityville NY. Reality started to set in as I asked my next question…Does he know the name of the girl who is contacting him? I braced myself for the answer as he spoke the words…”Dawn DeFeo”


On November 13th 1974, Dawn
Defeo, along with her mother, father, 2 younger brothers, and a younger sister, were found murdered in their home. They were discovered by older brother Ronald DeFeo Jr, who was later convicted of all six murders. He
is still in prison at this time. Since his arrest, he has taken to pushing the blame of the murders on everyone but solely himself. He has even taken to pushing the murder of the young children on Dawn, saying he only intended to kill his parents, and Dawn killed his brothers and sister. When he saw what she had done, he was enraged and killed her also. The evidence surrounding the murders is controversial at best, and chances are it will never be proven one way or the other what really happened that night. Ronald Jr is the only living member of that household left, and his word changes so often that no one seems to know what to believe anymore.

                 Dawn               Marc              Allison             John
                                                  Ronald Jr.
On November 21, 1975, DeFeo was found guilty on six counts of second-degree murder. On December 4, 1975, Judge Thomas Stark sentenced Ronald DeFeo, Jr. to six consecutive sentences of 25 years to life..Defeo is currently being held at Green Haven Correctional Facility,Beekman,New York. and all of his appeals to the parole board to date have been turned down.

Clearly we could tell that if in fact Dawn was around and haunting our client, she was looking to clear her name, and get the real story out of what happened all those years ago. We were now hooked on this case, and wanted to settle for our client one way or the other what was really going on. It seemed to up front to be one of those cases where it would be very hard to obtain solid proof of this particular spirit being there, just because this murder case is one of the most notorious cases of our time.

Throughout our investigation, aside from our normal routine of investigating, we also took great care to also focus on specifically calling Dawn out, and asking her to verify specific information that would prove to us that she was there. We told her if she was listening she really had to speak up and let us know. Our evidence we picked up surprised us all and is detailed below.



In this first EVP you hear a voice that dosent fit saying what sounds like "Love"


This second EVP sound like a female struggling saying "Oh No No NO...."


This was a very interesting one,our client was talking about Dawn saying I hope she dosent hide tonight..You hear a voice say "Ollie Ollie Oxen Free" Our younger investigators had no clue what it meant but our senior members remember this playing Hide N Seek as children


This last one pretty much is conformation.When ever you can get a spirit to say it's name,its like you struck gold.Is this Dawn Defeo?We know what we believe.Tell us what you think. It is eleven seconds in you will hear a whisper say "Dawn is Here" 



Update: NEPA Paranormal is still actively working on this case. Since we seemed to have gotten confirmation the Dawn is indeed there, it is our hope that now, since she realizes she can communicate with us, that maybe she will give us some additional information that may change the minds of some who still believe she had a hand in the murder of her family.

We will post evidence updates as we get them.
