Exploring the Jersey Shore Thrill Killer

About the event

Richard Biegenwald, a notorious American serial killer, operated during the 1970s and early 1980s in New Jersey. His heinous crimes included the brutal murders of at least nine victims, primarily young women. Biegenwald's modus operandi involved picking up hitchhikers or women involved in sex work, whom he would subsequently torture, sexually assault, and then murder. His predatory spree, marked by a macabre mix of violence and sadism, spread fear throughout the Jersey Shore. Despite his capture in 1983, Biegenwald's legacy of terror continues to haunt the memories of those affected, leaving a tragic imprint on the annals of American criminal history.
