OTHER NOTABLE DEATHS

March 10, 2006

Richard Kuklinski, 70, who claimed to have killed more than 100 people as a Mafia hit man, died Sunday of undisclosed causes in the prison wing of St. Francis Hospital in Trenton, N.J. Kuklinski promoted his notoriety by appearing in two HBO documentaries and meeting with writers, psychiatrists and criminologists. He became known as the Iceman because he sometimes froze corpses to disguise the time of death. He was convicted in New Jersey in 1988 of five murders and was serving consecutive life terms when he pleaded guilty in 2003 to killing a New York City police detective in 1980.
