Forensic Files profile: Craig Rabinowitz
In 1997, Craig Rabinowitz (age 34 at the time) was married and living in a wealthy suburban area of Philadelphia, PA. He was married to Stefanie, had a daughter, and owned a successful company producing latex products. Craig seemed like the model Sailer-type white male: An affluent white male living in a suburban area, married with children, and successful businessman. However, in the deceptive right-wing world of lies and greed, success can be very deceptive and when the truth is revealed, it all too often turns out to be a fatal sham.
While Craig Rabinowitz seemed to be happily married, he was secretly carrying out a romantic affair with a stripper in an upscale strip bar in Philadelphia, Delilah's Den. Her name was Shannon Reinhart, nicknamed Summer, and Craig would frequently visit her at the strip bar at least once a week. He tipped her heavily and bought lavish presents for her amounting to over $2000 a week. After nearly a year of this clandestine affair, Craig spent over $100,000 on her.
Another harsh reality set in as the latex company he owned was a scam that never produced anything. His company was a Ponzi style pyramid scam that left him in hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt after investors realized the scam and demanded their money back. Investigators determined Craig Rabinowitz was $671,000 in debt after his affair with the stripper and his Ponzi scam.
With nowhere to go, Craig had very few options remaining, as with many fraudulent right-wingers caught in the dead-end situations they dug for themselves. It would be theft, murder, and/or suicide. Craig chose the route of murder by taking out a massive life insurance policy on his wife for nearly $2 million, then drugging her and drowning her in their home bathtub. Craig called 911 and initially reported it as an accidental death, but forensic science soon discovered it was a malicious murder.
Craig Rabinowitz is serving a life sentence in a Pennsylvania prison with no chance of parole.
Seriously, I know that sex scandals and scams afflict every race, but the extent Craig carried out his scam is so ridiculous it is only the manipulative Sailer-type white male who can carry out such heinous and insane crimes. I know people get scammed for a couple hundred or maybe even a few thousand dollars, but to spend $100,000 on an affair with a stripper and scam people hundreds of thousands of dollars?
This kind of devious crime could only be the mark of the manipulative Sailer-type white male. Be aware.
