Ronald DeFeo, Jr.

Ronald DeFeo, Jr. is the oldest son of Ronald and Louise DeFeo. Better known as “Butch” to his friends, Ronnie was convicted of murdering his entire family inside the house at 112 Ocean Avenue on Thursday, November 14, 1974.

DeFeo originally confessed to the killings, telling police, “Once I started, I just couldn’t stop.” But years since, Ronnie has changed his story numerous times. The latest version names his sister, Dawn DeFeo, as the real killer of the family and Ronnie only killed Dawn in a rage.

Ronald is currently serving six consecutive life sentences at the Green Haven Correctional facility in New York.
