NEW YORK — Geraldo Rivera dates the low point in modern New York City history to Aug. 9, 1977. That was the day before police arrested David Berkowitz, the serial killer who called himself “Son of Sam.” He terrorized the city for a year with late-night shootings, killing six and wounding seven, and primarily targeted young women sitting in cars. The time is vividly brought to life in the Smithsonian Channel documentary, “The Lost Tapes: Son of Sam,” premiering Sunday at 9 p.m. The Investigation Discovery network is airing its own retrospective on the crime spree that airs next Saturday, Aug. 5.

- 'Son of Sam' killer was arrested 40 years ago this week
By COLLEEN LONG, Associated Press - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
When the police finally got him, 40 years ago Thursday, the man behind the killings was unmasked as a schlubby civil servant with a boyish face and a dopey smile.A pretrial report had recommended Berkowitz be released without bail because he had a steady job as a postal worker and ties to the community.Six people died and seven were wounded, sometimes horribly, as Berkowitz stalked the city, targeting young women and couples sitting in cars.Fanned by news reports, and Berkowitz's own loquacious letters sent to newspaper columnist Jimmy Breslin, the "Son of Sam" saga whipped up fear.Young people turned down dates or parties to stay home.Since the killer appeared to favor women with long, dark hair, women cut or dyed their hair.[...] it wasn't until after the fifth attack, on March 8, 1977, that police put the pattern together; ballistics tests confirmed that one gunman was responsible for all five shootings.When a witness reported a strange man on the street near the final shooting, police checked traffic tickets that had been issued in the area and traced them to Berkowitz's car and Yonkers home.According to news reports from the early 1980s, a lawyer for two of the victims said Berkowitz admitted he was part of a murderous cult.
