Ronald Defeo Jr Information & Facts?

The house made famous by the 1970s Amityville Horror film has gone on sale in Long Island, New York, with a price tag of $1.15m so I wondered about Ronald Defeo Jr.

Whatever happen to convicted killer Ronald DeFeo Jr? Is he still Alive?
Is Ronald Defeo Jr. still in jail? Because he was sentenced to 25 years in prison since 1975, if you add that up he would have got out in 2000. Where is he today?

Where can I find more information and facts about Ronald Defeo Jr?
