Former cop who abused troubled young men killed his ex-lover to hide evidence
Joseph Mlyniec was a volunteer firefighter, Rotary and Town Board member, and sheriff’s deputy in his small upstate New York hometown. Now he’s been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for killing his former lover and friend.
Mlyniec had a dirty secret. He would lure troubled young men back to his farmhouse where he would force them to have sex in exchange for food and money.
When his friend, Robert Irvine, got wind of what was going on, Mlyniec panicked. Fearing exposure, he shot Irvine four times in the driveway of his home and called police to confess to the crime.
