To close out our month of cults we're looking at the Son of Sam, David Berkowitz and the theory that there may have been a "Sons of Sam" cult.

We'll take you through the details of the Son of Sam/.44 Calibre killings and Berkowitz's capture and trial. And then we'll take a look at the theory put forth by journalist Maury Terry in his book The Ultimate Evil and in the new Netflix documentary series: Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness.
