On March 13th, 1964, Winston Moseley attacked Kitty Genovese, a young woman heading back to her apartment in the early morning hours. He stabbed her and left her there to die. Winston then returned to rape her and deliver the fatal wounds that would kill Kitty. Kitty Genovese is one of New York City’s most well-known murder victims. Psychologists have cited her case for decades as an example of the bystander effect.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the life and crimes of Winston Moseley. Most people are probably not as familiar with his name as they are with the name of Kitty Genovese. But, Moseley killed others and committed many other crimes. The New York Times reported that 38 eyewitnesses watched Winston murder Kitty and did nothing to help. Although there were a few witnesses, this staggering number is false. Today we’ll discuss who Winston was, why he attacked Kitty, his other crimes, and the truth about who witnessed her murder.
