The Iceman Tapes - Inside The Mind Of A Mafia Hitman

by Paul Kreugel • 2,606,550 views

Richard Kuklinski gets diagnosed by a psychiatrist.

After spending 12 years in State and Federal prisons I can honestly say he is one of the few I ran across who had that "look". People like him you can tell are willing to take it to the limit. To take it farther than the next man. I ain't no bitch but people like him I would stay away from. The slightest thing (spitting in the sink in the cell, touching his towel with yours, stepping on a shoe on accident) could set them off. He's not unpredictable in a "crazy" sort of way but in a cold, calculating, wait till ur on the toilet takin a shit and rush you with a "lock in a sock" kind of way. With all the time I had during my Fed bid (10 years) I just wanted to get through with as much good time in the bag as possible. It was very hard but I did it. Prison is shitty, it made me tougher but I lost allot of time out of my life and made me a harder, more cold and less feeling individual. I hope none of you ever has the experience.

It's pretty obvious he's lying about things. His claims are so outrageous. He even claimed he killed Jimmy Hoffa, Roy Demeo, and Paulie Castalleno. Cops who investigated Demeo said nothing about a Kuklinsni being one of his killers. Numerous mafia people flipped and numerous killers were talked about. Kuklinski wasn't brought up.

+SportsLover I'm not saying that you're wrong, as I also think a lot of what he says are lies but he was due to testify against Sammy Gravano before he died, so the police obviously thought he had at least some involvement with the mob.

The problem with this guy is that he's actually worst than a serial killer, because nobody knows what's going to set him off. This guy killed people who just pissed him off and God only knows what that is. Most serial killers are motivated by sexual fantasy and look for specific victims which is horrible enough. This guy might blow your head off because you cut him off on the freeway or maybe because you caught him on a bad day.

At least he left children and women alone. Unlike most serial killers.

+TheDeanburke The accusation is that he was poisoned in prison. He WAS due to testify that he and Sammy Gravano murdered a cop. Whether or not they murdered him is another story. Apparantly he complained that they were trying to kill him before he died and he never did get to testify.

I love how people actually take the time to call him a liar, all because they can't believe people like this exist. Connect the dots, they have proven that he has killed at least ten people, that is a lot.A person who can do that thinks all life is expendable. Also, in regards to some things people are nitpicking about, he didn't claim to kill Hoffa, or demeo. In these interviews he said quite clearly that he didn't know who killed Hoffa or Demeo, he said what "he heard" happened to them. Furthermore, he was also financially very well off, and he had no other means to produce that kind of money other than a living like this. The FBI went to all this trouble because they knew what he was. One other instance of his psychopathic behavior, his ex-wife in an interview told of a story early on in their relationship where he superficially stabbed her and said "object lesson, don't ever leave me" with a huge smile on his face. Once again, a person who can do that to a person he "loved" can do anything someone he "hates". Some of his stories could be embellished, but the evidence suggests it would be a safer bet to give validity to his claims then it would be to call bullshit.
Report spam or abuse
Sportslover. Cannot prove the Hoffa claim, but evidence (and Sammy Gravano's own words) give credence to his claims of his involvement in the murder of Paul Castellano. Do your research....

He is dangerous cruel evil cold mother fucker , killing so many and seemingly fully without a single bit of emotion about it at all. I live in the uk born and bred and in England as in most other western countries serial killers are not common , the exception is America produces a much higher number of serial killers . Serial killers on American scale is a unique phenomenon . I been New York and Florida holidaying in America but not lived in US.Has anyone got a theory about why America turns out way more serial killers than all other western countries. Americans I met are very nice welcoming and hospitable , what happens to people in US to make so many killers ???????
Report spam or abuse
Your comments don't take into consideration the horrendous leaders that Europe has produced in the 20th century including Hitler. I would say that Hitler makes any serial killer look like a Disney cartoon. So let's not be too high minded and self righteous. Europe has produced some of the worst people history has known.
Report spam or abuse
YEAH BUT THE LEADERS LIKE HITLER THAT GREAT BRITAIN STOOD UP ALONE TO FIGHT AGAINST EVIL FIGHTING FOR A FREE WORLD AND ON THE SIDE ON DEMOCRACY FROM DAY 1 UNTIL THE LAST DAY OF THE WAR. America does produce cunt leaders as well that have murdered and destroyed . But serial killing is so much more common in the US than anywhere else, matter of fact that serial killing occurs way way more than it does anywhere else in the Western world.I have family been in US 40 years my cousis were born there and I find when I went to visit family that the yanks are so much more welcoming than anywhere else I have been all over the world. The americans I have met are the most friendly , easy going and polite human beings easy the best people I have met who are not from the UK . How can such generally pleasant and warm people be from the place where high numbers of  serial killing motherfuckers are born and bred!!! any clue ?

People comment on how evil and heartless this single human being in yet they're oblivious to their own reflection. Anything that can consider themselves a human can also become a monster, some experiences create exceptions. We all  commit cruel and evil actions rather it's everyday, once a month, or once a year. There is no changing the world, humanity is the symbol of everything destructive. Humans do nothing but  consume, create, and destroy In truth, we're no different from him, and if we experience certain things in life we too can become just like him, or worse.

+Vivian Sant'Anna Psychopathology is genetic, though. If you look at brain scans of psychopaths and non-psychopaths, there's a clear difference. The difference is between functional "pro-social" and "anti-social" psychopaths is one of upbringing.

He tortured living animals.... Most ppl don't do that's except other little cowards who think they tough for doin so

People that don't give a shit about hundreds of people he may have killed yet despise him for torturing animals are just silly... Killing animals LEADS to killing people, that's mostly how murderers evolve, kinda like "test drive", preparation for the "end game". Can't really have one without the other. Do you attempt to drive a car if you've never even sat on a goddamn bicycle? It doesn't come up out of blue.

A lot of people have psychopathic and sociopathic tendencies however much of what determines their outcome has to do with their upbringing. For if you take a psychopath and give them the right upbringing with the correct motivation they can turn out fairly decent and function in society. However take that same person and put them in an environment that feeds their illness and further assures them of their course, and you end up with a serial killer. Also having just one or two types of psychopathic disorders usually isn't enough to cause a killer, however many different disorders piled together can have a much greater effect.

Just from personal experience, I'm a very nice guy but at 6'5" 280, no one has ever really treated me too awful and I assume size has something to do with it. I'm under the assumption that anyone who tried to cross him was also probably drunk or crazy.

what a smirk he has
Report spam or abuse
He must have had some moral side to him, he never hurt children and he never killed women. He always killed men which obviously comes from his hatred for his father. He must have some sort of hate for his mother but not strong enough to kill them. He used domestic violence on his wife but never killed her. He loved his children though and would do anything for them which is something his father never did. Also its interesting that he wont call his mother and father as mom and dad just stanley and whatever his mom was called
Report spam or abuse
+Mike dunno you are right!  ..they use power over women because they want to feel empowered and a woman cannot defend herself against them, but really, they are "cowards" just like you said.  Just listening to him talk, you can tell that he tries to intimidate and sound so threatening.  He has no morals..and someone who loves their children doesn't beat their mother..glad he finally got what he deserves

The mind of a serial killer is simply amazing. So concise and calculating. Plotting every move from the start of a case to conviction. Having it all mapped out and getting through more than 200 people before even getting caught. You have to have so many skills to do something as psychotic as this and make it out still somewhat sane. It's nuts.
