What Was David Berkowitz Like Growing Up?

Serial killer David Berkowitz, aka "The Son of Sam," was arrested in 1977 for killing six and wounding seven in New York City. Criminologist and author Scott Bonn later spoke with Berkowitz. Bonn says he was an "extremely troubled young man" who was "very empty inside" and "looking for some sort of purpose."
