Maury Terry’s mention on the Wikipedia page of David Berkowitz identifies him as a journalist, who challenged the official verdict in the 70s serial murder case.

Maury Terry was an American journalist famous for his investigation into the “Sons of Sam” killing spree back in the late 1970s.

Maury was known for pushing his narrative that the serial murders that took place in New York in the 70s were not the act of one man. Instead, he believed a team of Satan worshippers was involved in the murders.

Police authorities eventually arrested a man named David Berkowitz for the killings of eight people. But, Maury was convinced that David acted alone.

Maury is currently trending after he was featured in a Netflix crime documentary titled The Sons of Sam.

When David Berkowitz was arrested in 1977, New York City breathed easy now that the monster behind the Son of Sam killings was behind bars.

But one man has spent decades trying to prove that Berkowitz didn’t act alone.

Maury Terry Wife And Family

Maury Terry had an ex-wife named Georgiana Byrne.

The couple first met in 1978 and got married in March 1980.

But, Terry’s obsession with The Sons of Sam murders eventually took a toll on their marriage as the two became distanced from each other. 

Eventually, Maury and his wife Georgiana separated but they continued to remain good friends until his death in 2015. Byrne even attended Terry’s and expressed grief over his demise.

Other than his ex-wife, there are no details of Maury’s other family members. It seems he never parented any children; hence, Terry’s bloodline should have ended with his death in 2015.
