“I wanted to contact him immediately after the arrest”, Mladinich told Fox News “But I was still an active police officer back then And I didn't want to interfere with the investigation So I put it on the back burner… But for years, I wanted to know how someone, who seemed like a very nice boy, could commit such heinous crimes”

Mladinich said he and Rifkin, now aged 62 years, wrote to each other regularly until they met again in the fall 1999

“You know, I first learned that he was accused of being a serial killer while on the Long Island highway”, he remembers. “When I heard her name on the radio, I stopped I was breathing heavily I was just in shock that someone like him could be arrested for these crimes”

In the documentary, readers will learn how Rifkin was a gentle, gentle-mannered child Growing up, he wrestled with confidence and lacked a natural athletic ability, what frustrated his father. Over the years, he was also bullied at school, which left him angry and isolated as he desperately sought his father's approval.

“Joel was a little eccentric”, said Mladinich “Some people considered him funny I saw him as an artistic bent I remember writing about a boxing match for one of our assignments as journalism students and he photographed the event He took some great photos and had an appealing artistic side I just struggled to understand that this same person was a serial killer capable of such barbarism”

“Even when we first spoke in the correctional facility, it was like we were friends over the 20 last years”, did he declare. “The only difference is that in the space of 20 minutes, we started talking about murder and chaos”

“When we started to talk, it was a little embarrassing”, said Mladinich “We were trying to catch up with the 20 last years But I also said to myself: «How was I going to turn the conversation into talking about the crimes?» I don't really remember how it happened exactly, but in 20 minutes, it was a seamless transition to talk about the murders.”

“Joel was very calm about it”, a poursuivi Mladinich “He was very clear about it He never liked talking about these horrific crimes There was no emotion at all There was no regret or desire to bring the victims back There was none of it

“He said he wanted to feel remorse or to feel some humanity towards them He wasn't capable of that He wanted to know why he lacked that empathy and humanity That's why he volunteered to undergo brain scans whenever they became available and he was willing to talk to mental health professionals”

Rifkin didn't stop after his first murder According to the special, he killed 16 other sex workers He dismembered their bodies and disposed of their remains in the New York area

Her other victims were Tiffany Bresciani, Julie Blackbird, Lauren Marquez, Mary Catherine Williams, Barbara Jacobs, Yun Lee, Maryann Hollomon, Leah Evens, Violet O’Neill, Mary Ellen DeLuca, Lorraine Orvieto, Iris Sanchez, Jenny Soto, and Anna Lopez, Newsday reported

Rifkin specifically picked women who would not immediately gain attention if they went missing and police were unaware that a man was specifically targeting sex workers in the area The scattering of remains throughout New York also reported authorities less likely to notice a trend

Bresciani's body was found in the back of Rifkin's van after being arrested by state police for a traffic violation, The New York Times reported According to the outlet, Rifkin admitted to the other murders during questioning

“At the end of the years 80 and at the beginning of the years 90, it was really not difficult to get away with such crimes”, said Mladinich “There were no cameras in every block There was really no coordination between the police stations So, if a body was found in the Bronx, Brooklyn detectives might not hear from it for weeks, days, even months – sometimes never”

“If these crimes had taken place today, I think the police would have quickly made the connection”, did he declare “They would suspect a serial killer was on the loose and his car would have been easily spotted by cameras”

Five months after Rifkin's capture, “Seinfeld” released an episode titled “The Masseuse” in which Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) dating a man named Joel Rifkin (Anthony Cistaro) as the murderer hit the headlines

Several months later, the football star was charged with the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman He was later acquitted

In 1994, Rifkin was sentenced to life imprisonment In 2013, DNA evidence has confirmed that «Susie», his first known victim, was Heidi Balch, a woman of 25 years in New York working as a prostitute.

“Joel never expressed remorse of any kind to me”, said Mladinich «In an effort to show that there was a grain of decency in him, he wrote this manifesto, a proposal in fact, to create a facility where rebel women who lived on the streets could go to safety. They could learn life skills, like writing a check, parenting skills – how to live their life safely What I found most interesting, that was when he said they can also learn to protect themselves «people like me He describes himself as a wolf in sheep's clothing”

Mladinich hopes the documentary will show people to be wary of the people they choose to associate with.

“There are a lot of injured people there”, did he declare “And a lot of them are dangerous people We need to be more aware when we see people who have been exposed to so much wickedness, so much emotional brutality, of physical brutality I think this is a wake-up call that there could be a lot of Joel Rifkin walking around”
