Robert Reldan, a handsome, Ted Bundy-like charmer, had an engaging smile—a smile that would cause unsuspecting women to drop their guard and place themselves under the power of one of New Jersey's most ruthless killers. It would take an exhaustive investigative effort and the skill of a top prosecutor to finally put Reldan away for good, but not before he inherited $8.9 million from a doting aunt. Arthur Reeve, the father of one of Reldan's victims, would go after Reldan in the courts and, eventually, deprive him of his inheritance. Reeve donated the money to a scholarship fund in memory of his daughter.
