SHATTERED HOPES: THE TRUE STORY OF THE AMITYVILLE MURDERS wrote:Ric and I get a lot of email with people who want to have conversations about the DeFeo case. Sometimes, these convos have interesting outcomes. This document was sworn in 2002, and was subsequently filed in defense of several lawsuits filed against us by Ronnie DeFeo in 2003, 2004. The veracity of this document has never been contested. Seems Ronnie likes to run his mouth...
The affidavit by "JO ANN" can be read on the FB page.
JO ANN wrote:To sum up, throughout our friendship, he maintained the fact that he had a wife/ex-wife who was named Gerladine. They were married and living together at the time of the murders. He also had a daughter named Stephanie, born in August of 1974.
This friendship occured around 1989-93, when Ronnie was already pushing the marriage story in those affidavits, so this add NOTHING to the argument.
"The veracity of this document has never been contested
" - probably because it's never been seen in public before
And again, it does nothing to PROVE Gerri was around pre-'74, it just shows he told another potential "wife" that he had a daughter and was still married to Gerri (which apparently he was in 1990, because they married the previous year in prison

I am the only producer who can say he had dinner with Wife 1 and Wife 2 who had to sit through a disgusting talk about DeFeo's sexual prowless and talks over the length of his penis, which the two wives articulated, to my utter dismay, in candid and graphic detail. And,the details articulated are in perfect harmony...
...And, suffice to say.....Ronnie Jr. Told Barbara that he was married and had a daughter named Stephanie....when, frankly, there was no reason for him to do so other than his own candid honesty. And his statements match all of the statements given by the Legal Dept. at Green Haven Correctional facility....all of which are part of a 2003 legal filing, under the penalty of perjury, which our opponents wish to simply ignore and pretend doesn't exist.
Again, this adds nothing... so he told Barbara - who came along in the 90's - about Gerri and Stephanie... And..?

I'm not sure why he keeps reminding customers what shaky ground he's built his story on...
Finish the docs - they should speak for themselves!
