Harvey “Marceline” Marcelin, the transexual two-time convicted murderer who was charged last month with killing and dismembering a third victim, sat down this week for a horrifying 55-minute-long interview with the New York Post.

The interview with the 83-year-old convicted murderer began with Marcelin demanding to be called “Marceline.”

“You can call me Marceline. Harvey’s not a good guy, he’s a tough guy. Marceline’s nice and gentle and loving, you know, lots of laughter, fun to be with. She’s the one who’s perfectly normal,” Marcelin said.

But there’s nothing normal about Marcelin’s sick history.

“The killer, who served more than 50 years in prison for murdering two girlfriends — one in 1963 and one in 1985 — is now accused of a fresh homicide, the gruesome dismemberment of 68-year-old Susan Leyden,” according to the Post.

Marcelin claimed to be in touch with both a masculine and feminine side and seemingly attributed the murders to the male persona, saying the “male persona gets her in trouble,” as reported by the Post, which has chosen to refer to Marcelin as “her.”

Both the male and female persona interacted with Leyden, who Marcelin met in Tompkins Square Park in the East Village.

Marcelin claimed that the violent male side would erupt forth whenever girlfriends, including apparently Leyden, would be controlling.

“There’s a point where they want to rule me and they take advantage of my softness. They misinterpret it. They start henpecking me. I tell them — there’s a side of me you don’t want to see… but they don’t listen,” Marcelin said.

Marcelin appeared to blame the victims for their deaths, arguing that their allegedly controlling behavior was at the root of the male persona’s anger.

Asked by the Post to describe the feeling of erupting in rage, Marcelin called it “liberating.”

“Well, sometimes it’s liberating, you know. You get all that dirt out, you know, the pent-up stress. You can let your macho side come out. It isn’t what you want it to come out, though. You’re covering it up by being a woman because you don’t like this male with this male rage. You don’t want that person loose,” Marcelin said.

Speaking with the Post, Marcelin confessed to the two previous murders but tried to play innocent regarding the death of Leyden.

“[S]he insisted she did not chop the head and limbs off Leyden in February as charged, even though police have video of her shopping in a motorized scooter while sitting atop Leyden’s severed leg,” according to the Post.

“I’m being framed because of my rap sheet,” Marcelin angrily said.

“Leyden was one of three women who occasionally crashed at Marceline’s East New York apartment. One of the trio, called Jillian, is reportedly cooperating with the police; the other one, according to Marceline, is the murderer,” the Post notes.

“She was jealous of Susan,” Marcelin said of the unnamed third woman.

Meanwhile, Marcelin expressed a tiny bit of sadness over Leyden’s death but also expressed annoyance that Leyden is being portrayed in a positive light, given as she’s a murder victim.

“She wasn’t no Mother Teresa. They make her look like a saint, like a sweet little darling,” Marcelin said to the Post.

Regarding Leyden’s murder, the Post notes that her “dismembered body parts were found in several locations around Brooklyn last month.”

“Surveillance footage showed Leyden, who lived in an LGBTQ senior center in Fort Greene, entering Marceline’s East New York apartment on Feb. 27. That was the last time she was seen alive,” according to the outlet.

“Prosecutors allege that Marceline discarded a black shopping bag containing Leyden’s torso later that week. The victim’s head and other limbs were discovered in Marceline’s apartment, along with blood, cleaning supplies, a hammer and the box for an electric saw, prosecutors said.”

Incidentally, Marcelin’s first two murders occurred before the transexual switch.

Marcelin was reportedly sentenced to 20-years-to life in the shooting death of a girlfriend in April 1963 at their Manhattan apartment. Marcelin was reportedly released on lifetime parole in May 1984.

“The killer was free for less than a year when she was busted again for fatally stabbing another live-in girlfriend — stuffing her body into a bag she’d dumped on the street near Central Park, sources and court records said. She was convicted of first-degree manslaughter in that case in 1986 and sentenced to a 6-to-12-year term in prison,” the Post notes.

Though Marcelin reportedly dressed up as a woman for Halloween as a child — “It felt so good,” Marcelin said of this — not til 1993 did the once-“latent” feminine side fully emerge.

“She met a transgender inmate at the Auburn state prison in 1993 who encouraged her to start taking Premarin hormone therapy,” according to the Post.

Marcelin blames all the bad behavior on a rough upbringing at a Catholic daycare center that “was run by strict nuns who whipped her, sexually abused her and forced children to eat bad food,” according to the Post.

“My mother had to literally drag me there, I’d be pleading, ‘No no no.’ One time I ran away but they chased me down the street and caught me. They treated me bad. Very bad. So I think I flipped there. Intellectually, I’m all right, but emotionally I’m tore up,” Marcelin said.
