George Lutz, the man who lived in the Amityville house with his wife, Kathy Lutz, revealed this photo on the Merv Griffin Show in 1979.
Gene Campbell, who was part of the paranormal investigation team led by Ed and Loraine Warren, took the photo. The camera was set up to take photos automatically using infrared.
Some have speculated that it is the ghost of John Defeo, the young boy who was murdered along with his family by Ron Defeo in 1974. Others have suggested it is Paul Bartz, another paranormal investigator involved with the case.
As you can see, Paul Bartz, although young at the time, does not look as young as the Amityville ghost kid. More importantly, it doesn’t look anything like the kid at all.
What I think is more important that who the ghost kid is, is the fact that the eyes are reflecting infra red just like a flesh and blood body would do. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not a ghost kid, I mean, it is also wearing clothes, how and why the hell are ghost always wearing clothes? Does it mean that articles of clothing have souls? DUN DUN daaaaaaAAAAH! Maybe next time when you lose a sock, you’ll be a little more concerned.
