    Ronald DeFeo Jr (69) found dead in prison while serving a sentence for the "The Amityville Horror" Murders

    FALLSBURG, New York (WABC) -- Ronald DeFeo Jr., who was convicted of killing his entire family inside their Amityville home in 1974, has died.

    The case inspired the book and film versions called "The Amityville Horror."


    DeFeo murdered his father, mother, two brothers, and two sisters in their Suffolk County home.

    He initially blamed the shooting deaths of his 6 family members on a mob hitman but eventually confessed to carrying out the crime.

    DeFeo died Friday at Sullivan Correctional Facility in Fallsburg, where he was serving six 25 years to life sentences.

    The cause of death was not immediately known.

    He was 69.

    The Ryan Reynolds one? I think Ryan Reynolds (the stepdad) was possessed and tried to kill everyone.

    Yeah. As I remember the actual murders happened, and DeFeo spouted a bunch of hokum about being influenced by the evil that was the house. Then the house was sold and the people who bought it fled and claimed it was evil, then books were written and movies made that had nothing to do with what really took place. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amityville_Horror Then other people bought it and ... it's a house, seemingly untroubled by demons.

    Didn't he say his dad was abusive or some lame excuse like that?
