Inside the mind of a Mafia Hitman

This is a very interesting video of an interview with one of the most notorious killers of our times. Richard Kuklinski was born in 1935 and died in 2006 in prison where he had been since 1988. He was sentenced to a life in prison after being convicted of 3 murders although the real number of victims was somewhere between one and two hundred. He served as a mafia hitman for over 30 years until he was caught. In this interview a psychiatrist talks to Kuklinski about his career as a hitman, his childhood and explains why he became so successful as a hitman. The explanation is in part that he suffered from a toxic mixture of personality disorders and grew up in a very dysfunctional home. A must see for all interested in personality disorders and forensic psychology. Wikipedia also has some information on Richard Kuklinski:
