Episode 51: Joel Rifkin

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. Listen in as we wrap up our first season of Uncorked Crime with another gorey serial killer.
