Post by sherbetbizarre » Wed Oct 26, 2005 10:27 am

Is anyone hosting the Good Housekeeping article from '77 online anywhere?

Yeah, it's on the internet archives:

...for some reason, page 4 doesn't seem to load. It might exist on another archive of Ric's site if someone feels like hunting for it. That archive is pretty spotty. Some "editions" of Ric's archive contain a certain image, while others give a "not archived" error...

So this is the piece that was printed before
George & Kathy gave the O.K.? Wow, I
wonder what upset them more; that their
story was made public before they were
ready, or that it contained a tampon AND
a hemorroid ad?
Seriously, thanks for posting that article;
I'd never had the opportunity to read it.

oh yeah about the tampon and the hemerroid add I agree they should have been on it's own pages but I guess they didn't do that back then. I was only about 7-8 yrsd old at the time and still looked at the pictures in magazines. lol

?She?s not with her kids? Kathy blurted.

She has no idea what prompted the statement. On checking the next day, the Lutzes learned that Mrs. DeFeo?s family was shifting her body from the DeFeo plot to another gravesite.

I've never heard that before...is it true? I mean, is Louise DeFeo burried with the rest of her family or not?

omg Toukee now that you mentioned it I think it would be terrible if it is true. She should be with the rest of the family. Hope it isn't true

I've had the articles for some time now, and in pretty good clarity if I must say, however I have never dared to make them public for fear of Lee yelling at me :P

If someone wants to give me the all clear sign, I will upload them to the site.

He had nothing to do with this article, so I doubt he'd yell at you :)

And THANKS DAN & SECRETS!

HOW?

Post by Dutchcolonial » Wed Oct 26, 2005 8:55 pm

How is it that George and Kathy had nothing to do with the article? With all the quotes, and the whole story put in there second person.....there had to be an interview of some sort? Dutch.

After William Weber heard the Lutzes story, he invited Paul Hoffman over one night and they went over the story again...

Hoffman was introduced as a "criminal expert"... ie. someone who could say whether this story helped Ronnie or not... but in hindsight he was probably just the writer Weber had earmarked to do his book.

So Hoffman had heard the story first-hand and taken notes (may have even recorded the session?) ...and then the Lutzes split from Weber.

Weber & Hoffman sold the story to the New York Sunday Times in July 1976... and again for the April 1977 edition of Good Housekeeping.

Both times without the Lutzes consent.

Prentice Hall were alarmed at this, because they felt it would hurt their upcoming book and advised the Lutzes to take legal action... which they did... eventually resulting in Weber VS Lutz in 1979.

In hindsight though, the articles probably whetted the publics appetite for the story.

My mom was an avid Good Housekeeping and McCall's (prior to the Rosie debacle) reader, I read the article when she received it in the mail and saved it for a few years until under my bed was thoroughly housecleaned.
