GIRL STABBED TO DEATH - NEIGHBORS DON'T WANT TO GET INVOLVED
March 13th, 1964

Kitty Genovese, 38 was brutally stabbed to death in front of her Kew Gardens apartment this evening as her neighbors watched from windows and heard her wild cries for help, but did nothing to help. It wasn't until over a half hour later when someone in the neighborhood finally called the police and reported the dead body in the street.
