Some Men Deserve To Be Dead
Robert Zarinsky is dead from pulmonary fibrosis. Good, It couldn't happen to a more deserving individual.
You see, a long time ago Zarinsky was on trial for the murder of a 17 year old girl from my current hometown of Atlantic Highlands. Her body was never found but he was sentenced for life thanks to the dogged work of former Atlantic highlands Police Sgt. Sam Guzzi.
I had just moved to the town when the Star-Ledger published an excellent series of articles called "Deadly Secrets" that went into full detail of what went down. Here's the rub, Zarinsky had been accused and linked to many more crimes from as far back as 1958. That cop killing crime took more than 40 years to go to trial. He was found not guilty mainly because of the length of time was considered too long for Zarinsky to get a "fair" trial. The family of the slain policeman was able to successfully sue for money in civil court but the reward was overturned on appeal.
Zarinsky got his money back while he was in jail but sued to get some interest on what he lost, money he was in no position to spend. Yeah, what a douche.
Read the 15 part series that the Star Ledger published in 2007. Read how this scum got away with the killing of as many as 5 other young girls. He was to stand trial for one of them when he did.
