    "Son of Sam" serial killer David Berkowitz says he has no interest in seeking parole.     

    Berkowitz says in a letter to FoxNews.com that he is already a "free man'' and that Jesus Christ has already forgiven him, even if society never will.     

    Son of Sam terrorized New York City over 13 months in 1976 and 1977, taking responsibility for a string of fatal handgun assaults.     

    Berkowitz, formerly of Yonkers, is serving six consecutive 25-years-to-life sentences at the maximum-security Sullivan Correctional Facility northwest of New York City.     

    Berkowitz has been denied parole five times and has been in prison 34 years.

    He is eligible for a sixth parole hearing next year.
