Ric Osuna's Letter the the Mayor of Amityville
this letter, Ric Osuna characterizes the upcoming History Channel
documentaries (for which he was acting as self-appointed "spokesperson"
and "liaison" to the village of Amityville) as "100%
objective and to the point. There will be NO sensationalism
to the story."
goes on to point out the integrity of the History Channel and
stipulates, "The History Channel is pretty strict on their
guidelines - that once again being no sensationalism and enforcing
objectivity and truth. I'd be lying if I said the whole
show was about a supposed hoax perpetrated by certain individuals.
In fact, all parties, both pro and con, originally involved in
The Amityville Horror will have an opportunity to speak."
in his book he writes (p. 322-323): "The exploitation,
nonetheless, continued with the recent History Channel documentary
on The Amityville Horror, which aired for the Halloween 2000 season.
The documentary may have been grossly inaccurate, but it did provide
the original architects of the hoax a chance to speak out.
It is not surprising that Holzer, the Warrens and the Lutzes continued
to profess the story to be true, while Weber and Roxanne Kaplan
insisted that it was all a hoax."
