On July 29, 1976, 18-year-old Donna Lauria was sitting in an Oldsmobile outside her Bronx home, chatting with her friend, when David Berkowitz strode up and shot them both without saying a word. Lauria died. Over the next 367 days, five other people would die and seven would be hurt in a mysterious shooting spree that would cement Berkowitz in the annals of history as the Son of Sam, one of America's most notorious serial killers. New Yorkers were terrorized; the world was captivated. On Aug. 10, 1977, it ended. Berkowitz was arrested. Dramatic archive images capture the year of terror -- a nightmare that still haunts the families of the victims, and the people who lived through it, 40 years later.
