    Lorraine Orvieto, age twenty-eight, was strangled by Rifkin a few days before Christmas 1991, jammed in a 55-gallon oil drum and dropped into Coney Island Creek, where her body would remain undiscovered for over six months. The oil drum was a new kink with Rifkin, used at least four times by his count.

    A Jane Doe victim, thus entombed, was dredged from Newtown Creek, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, on May 13, 1992.

    Maryann Holloman, age 39, was retrieved from Coney Island Creek in her oil drum on July 9, two days before passers-by found the skeletal remains of Lorraine Orvieto nearby. There was another oil drum victim, Joel insists, although he doesnt know her name and cant recall exactly when he dropped her body in the Harlem River.

    A bit more on this Jane Doe:

    Rifkin’s ninth victim, ironically, surfaced before numbers seven and eight. He was vague on the details in later confessions, unable to recall the woman’s name, if he had ever known it.

    He remembered her tattoos, a pickup in Manhattan, and the way she fought for life when he began to strangle her. She followed Mary Holloman, sometime that winter, dismembered remains consigned to the last of Rifkin’s oil drums. He dropped her into Brooklyn’s Newtown Creek, where she was spotted floating with the current, foot protruding from the rusty barrel, on May 13, 1992.

    The cocaine in her system prompted detectives to brand her a drug “mule,” killed accidentally by the rupture of drug-filled condoms in her stomach. Police learned their mistake a year later, when Rifkin confessed to her slaying, but “number nine” remains anonymous, the last Jane Doe.

    http://murderpedia.org/male.R/r/rifkin-joel.htm

    Mary Holloman was picked up by Rifkin on January 2, 1992, so victim after her (ninth - our Jane Doe) in the same winter was picked up probably between Jan 3 to March 1992.
