Joel Rifkin


On June 28, 1993 Long Island State Troupers saw a small pickup truck moving along the Southern State Parkway. Noting that the vehicle lacked a license plate, the officers attempted to pull the driver over only to be ignored. A chase ensued, with the truck eventually crashing into a lamp post at an intersection. After placing the driver under arrest, the two officers made a grizzly discovery in the bed of the truck. The decaying body of a young woman was waiting for them beneath a tarp. The interrogation that followed horrified the inspectors, who had little idea that a serial killer had been preying upon the prostitutes of New York. Now faced with the evidence, they sought to verify the words of the man who had been driving the truck, Joel Rifkin, or that he would go down in history as the most notorious killer in Long Islands history.

Joel David Rifkin was adopted in 1959 at just three weeks old to Bernard and Jeanne Rifkin in New City, New York. By his late teen years, Joel started looking for prostitutes and developed a fascination of bondage and other aggressive sexual acts. After his father passed away in 1987, Joel began picking up prostitutes and would eventually take to murdering them and dismembering the bodies. Four years and 17 murders later, Joel was pulled over with the decaying body of Tiffany Bresciani in the bed of his truck. He was arrested, confessed to all the murders he had committed, and sentenced to 203 years - life in prison.
