Richard Kuklinski (The Ice Man) - By the 1980s, he had become the leading man in a crime ring. On one day, Paul Hoffman, a pharmacist, met with Richard. When Hoffman showed up carrying $25,000 in cash, Richard put the gun under his chin, said “There is no merchandise” and shot him. The shot didn’t kill Hoffman and he lay on the floor with blood pouring out, but Richard couldn’t kill him since his gun had jammed. He used a tire iron to finish him off, put his corpse in a steel drum, and left it by a hotel, where it sat for several weeks. 

On December 27, 1982, the body of a man named Gary Smith was found in a hotel room, poisoned with cyanide and strangled to death. Twenty people used the room before the body was found under the bed, decomposing rapidly. Since Richard had left strangulation marks, it was obvious that the man was the victim of a murder. 

On September 25, 1983, the body of Louis Masgay was found in a park. Richard had frozen the body two years before dumping it to confuse the time of death, earning him the nickname iceman from investigators. Unfortunately the body wasn’t fully thawed before it was found and the forensics investigators discovered foul play was involved. Over his lifetime, he claims to have killed over two hundred people. He says that he feels no remorse for murdering people, but probably wouldn’t do it if he didn’t have to.
