Designed by Edwin Wesson -the lesser known brother of Daniel Wesson- and Daniel Leavitt, made by Massachusetts Arms Co - serial number 618. .31 six-shot cylinder, cap and ball single action revolver, side hammer. Made in spite of Colt’s patent on the single action mechanism, the W&L 1849 belt revolver had to be modified into a manually indexed model shortly after its release on the market.
This is a list of chapters for “i will make you queen of everything you see,” put into chronological order for anyone who is interested in reading it that way. I’ve finally fixed this. I’ve brought it completely up to date and made sure they’re all in the proper order—especially snap shots that place within the same year. All interludes—chapters containing multiple years—will be in their own list.
In 1976 and 1977, David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz shot and killed six people and wounded many more in the Bronx and Brooklyn areas of New York.
1. Donna Laurie, age 18, was murdered by Berkowitz on 29 July 1976 at around one a.m. Berkowitz shot through her car window and hit her in the arm and neck. She was shot with a .44 caliber Bulldog. This was thought to be the doing of the Mafia, as the North Bronx area was, at the time, predominantly Italian.
2. Christine Freund, age 26, was shot and killed by Berkowitz on 30 January 1977 at around midnight. The police connected the murder of Donna Laurie to the murder of Freund, identifying the weapon as a .44 caliber Bulldog. However, due to conflicting descriptions of the assailant, this notion was quickly dismissed.
3. Virginia Voskerichain, age 19, was shot and killed by Berkowitz at around 7:30pm on 8 March 1977. He fired once into her head, killing her instantly. After her death, an NYPD task force known as Operation Omega was formed to catch the .44 Killer.
4. Valentina Suriani, age 18, and her boyfriend, Alexander Esau, age 20, were killed by Berkowitz on 16 April 1977, not far from the site of Donna Laurie’s murder. The first officer on the scene discovered an envelope addressed to Captain Joe Borelli. Berkowitz used just the tips of his fingers when handling the letter, rendering forensics unable to find usable fingerprints. Two weeks later, a similar letter was sent to the New York Daily News’ journalist, Jimmy Breslin.
5. Stacy Moskowitz, age 20, was shot and killed on 31 July 1977 in Brooklyn. While on a walk through the park with her boyfriend, they noticed an odd figure standing near a public restroom. Later, when they were in their car, Berkowitz fired three shots into their car, killing Moskowitz.
In August 1977, NYPD homicide detectives indicted David Berkowitz for eight shooting incidents. He confessed and claimed that his neighbor’s dog, who was allegedly possessed by a demon, instructed him to kill. On 12 June 1978, Berkowitz was sentenced to six consecutive life sentences. He is incarcerated in Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, New York.

Watson’s drive: ‘The HeForShe campaign creates a lot of confusion when
it comes to gender equality, because people are getting stuck in a
semantic argument, rather than addressing the actual issue. People are
associating gender equality with being exactly the same and, of course,
that’s not what it means.

Manufactured by C. Sharps and Co. in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1856. About 500 1st Type pistols were made between 1854 and 1857. They ranged from .31 to .34 caliber and used the same falling block action as Sharps’ much more famous rifle/carbine design. It failed to achieve commercial popularity as the market for single-shot pistols gradually faded away with the introduction of reliable revolvers.
