Scott Bonn has been corresponding with Berkowitz for several years as research for an upcoming book (tentatively titled Monster Dearest: Our Macabre Fascination with Serial Killers) thus gaining his trust and finally being granted an in person visit at Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, NY. Bonn came away from the meeting with a sense of sincerity from Berkowitz about his conversion to Christianity and his ministry within the prison. Bonn reports that the Son of Sam is now known as Son of Hope because of his wish to help others spiritually.
The debate about Berkowitz will go on for a long time, he will never be out from behind prison walls and, according to Scott Bonn, has no intention of asking for parole in the future. He seems content with his life, has made apologies, and is working on being an example to others.
Dr. Scott Bonn will include even more details of his visit in his upcoming book, along with his insights to other serial killers he has corresponded with, including Dennis Rader, the BTK Killer and his theories on the identity of Jack the Ripper. Monster Dearest is looking to be available in early 2014.
Dr. Scott Bonn is located in Manhattan and is available for live on-air commentary, expert consultation and speaking engagements.
