This guy was so scary. I read a few books about him and just recently saw a special on A&E about him. He is suspected in as many as 100 murders.

Good riddens....

You are right, this guy was very scary. And "Iceman" is an understatement IMO, I've never seen a person so cold, calm and calculating.

Oops, my bad. I just read the link and didn't know that he got the nic "Iceman" because he kept bodies in the freezer. I assumed it had to do with the fact that he has ice water running through his veins.

I wonder what he died of, and what became of his wife and kids? I don't expect to ever hear from them, I wouldn't want the world to know that he'd been my father.

In one of the books I read, it talked about how his wife and kids had NO idea of his "hidden" life. His wife was also interviewed on the show I watched recently. While she never talked bad of him, she said she never asked questions about his activities and why he would leave in the middle of the night for a few hours. She assumed it was due to his job. It was an interesting interview. I can't for the life of me remember if she divorced him. She did say that neither she or their kids had visited him in prison.

Thanks Jules. Did she say what he was like at home, with her and the kids?

Yeah, she said he was a fantastic husband/father and a great provider. Go figure.... Probably was except for that bottle of cyanide spray he carried around.

I'm sorry, but if my hubby was getting up during the night "to take care of business" I'd be asking some questions...

ETA - I just read some stuff about him on the crimelibrary site and his wife Barbara apparently wrote a book about her life as his wife. She claims in the book that he was like two people. She referred to them as the "Good Richard" and "Bad Richard." The "Bad Richard" used to beat her, chase her with a car, was very controlling. I don't remember reading any of that before. I'll have to go back through my books at home.

I'd be asking lots of questions!

When I first seen this, I thought maybe Sammy "the Bull" Gravono had kicked off! (Darn! I know that is not nice, I'll go to my corner now!) I don't think he's going to last the twenty years he was sentenced to for dealing. :boohoo: JMO
