I have asked you kindly to stop that dog from howling all day long, yet he continues to do so. I pleaded with you. I told you how this is destroying my family. We have no peace, no rest.
Now I know what kind of a person you are and what kind of a family you are. You are cruel and inconsiderate. You have no love for any other human beings. Your selfish, Mr. Carr. My life is destroyed now. I have nothing to lose anymore. I can see that there shall be no peace in my life, or my families life until I end yours.
Letter sent to Berkowitz's neighbor Sam Carr. Sam owned a black Labrador named Harvey that Berkowitz would claim had demons instructing him to murder. Shortly after this note, Berkowitz shot and wounded Harvey.
