Ronald DeFeo, Jr.'s Height

Post by Vlad » Thu Oct 31, 2013 12:34 am

Has Ronald DeFeo, Jr's height at the time of the murders ever been definitively established? I found an old thread which addressed the same question, but I couldn't find a reliable - let alone definitive - answer. Quoted heights were from 5'6" to 6'4"!

I don't know. He looks kind of short to me.

His father was 5'8" and he was taller than his father so obviously anything 5'8" or under is wrong.

How is the father's height known?

If it's from the autopsy report, those things are unreliable. They had Lee Harvey Oswald as anything from 5'9" to 6"1".

Huh, I always thought the dad was taller than Ronnie.

Likewise. I would have been very surprised if he was over 5'8"

To be honest it is something that I don't lie awake at nights thinking about.
