Does this really need to be a problem ? When something like this happens in the family, other family members tend to feel deeply ashamed and would not usually prefer to share the information with even their closest friends if they can avoid doing so. And with the geographical distances involved, both of them may have hope that you wouldn't find out about this any other way.

Why not wait and see what happens. You mention his imprisonment as having "just" happened, so its no as though she has kept it secret for decades. And if you mention where you went and who you visited, she may recognize that someone might have told you, and raise the topic herself.
