1977...After a year-long reign of terror, "Son of Sam" David Berkowitz is captured at his home in Yonkers. Detectives track him down through a parking ticket he had received at the scene of one of his shootings in Brooklyn. The city's most notorious serial killer is later convicted and sentenced to life in prison for each of his six murders.
