What is richard kuklinski's children doing now?

According to The Telegraph Richard's wife Barbara Kuklinski lives in a small apartment in the basement of a white shingled house in suburban New York State, which she shares with her younger daughter Christin and her boyfriend, and three dogs.

Older daughter Merrick is described by The Scotsman as having a number of heath problems and is reclusive. The children are in their forties now, with no update on Dwayne Kuklinski.

Now at 71, Barbara suffers from arthritis of the spine and a cluster of other chronic illnesses which she believes stem from the years she spent living in the shadow of her husband, a nurse visits once a week. After her husband’s arrest he left her with nothing and she was forced to look to her children for support.

A film scheduled to star Mickey Rourke as her murderous former husband fell apart due to financing issues and a rival project generally based on Kuklinski’s life, The Iceman, went ahead, starring Michael Shannon in the title role, and Winona Ryder as the killer’s loyal wife. The film was released in June, but Barbara didn’t receive a penny from the production and has no intention of seeing it.

Just recently, the film The Iceman hits Blu-Ray/DVD market which was released Tuesday, Sept. 3. The Iceman is rated R.
