What’s more terrifying than a serial killer’s dark crimes? Hearing one describe murder in detail.
In this exclusive sneak peek from Oxygen’s upcoming special, Rifkin on Rifkin: Private Confessions of a Serial Killer, Joel Rifkin shares bone-chilling details from one of his murders with former acquaintance Robert Mladinich. Warning: This never-before-heard tape includes details of a violent nature.
“I must have hit her 20, 30 times until my arms got tired,” Rifkin shares with Mladinich, a former cop, at the Attica Correctional Facility. “It was with a howitzer shell I picked up at a flea market for like, 25 cents, 50 cents.”
As Rifkin continues, he reveals he thought the victim was unconscious following the initial attack. “It was just two-handed like a baseball bat, sideways, up, from the top,” he recalls. “I just lost control.”
To Rifkin’s surprise, the victim got up following the near fatal beating—and he now believes he strangled her out of panic.
