It's in government documents that Ronnie's Sr. and Jr. Uncle Peter DeFeo was a member of the mafia, even in the years after the murders.

I absolutely believe they had ties to the Mafia. As for them not "offing" Jr. in prison, why bother? The Mafia is smarter than that.

It's generally very hard for the mob to hit someone in prison, especially if the perspective target is in protective custody. The mob could not kill informers like Sammy (The Bull) Gravano while/when he was in prison.
