Fotios "Freddy" Geas and at least one other inmate are believed to have been involved in the murder after the 89-year-old was found dead hours after he was transferred to a West Virginia prison. Girlfriends were found dead, rivals were mutilated and drug dealers shaken down.
According to a New York Daily News story from September 2011, Geas, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, was given a life sentence for the 2003 murder of a crime boss and another man they thought was an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant.
Private investigator Ted McDonough knew Geas and told The Boston Globe: "Freddy hated rats".
"Freddy hated guys who abused women".
An FBI spokeswoman in Pittsburgh declined to comment on Geas.
The FBI and US Attorney's Office are investigating the death as a homicide.

Other critics have gone further - questioning if prison officials may have been complicit.
