InfoIra Samuel Einhorn (born May 15, 1940), known as "the Unicorn Killer", is an American environmental activist convicted of murdering his ex-girlfriend Holly Maddux. On September 9, 1977, Maddux disappeared following a trip to collect her things from the apartment she and Einhorn had shared in Philadelphia. Eighteen months later, police found Maddux's partially mummified body in a trunk in his closet. It had been packed with Styrofoam pellets, air fresheners, and newspapers.

After his arrest, Einhorn fled the country and spent 23 years in Europe before being extradited to the US. He took the stand in his own defense, claiming his ex-girlfriend had been killed by CIA agents who framed him for the crime because he knew too much about the agency's paranormal military research. He was convicted and is currently serving a life sentence.

His moniker, "the Unicorn", came from his name, Einhorn — unicorn in German.
