    The Acid King Read ↠ 104 The Acid KingWell researched and factual account of the Aztakea Long Island murder by a 19 year old known as the Acid King which started the Satanic Panic of the mid 1980s It tries to dispel the notion that the murder was part of an organized satanic ritual It achieves that but in doing so it washes over the fact that the murderer clearly was obsessed with Satan Still the author does a good job of showing how his broken family life was a primary driver of his life of drugs and crime
