Kitty Genovese Killer Dies in Prison

The psychopathic serial killer who raped and butchered a New York woman while neighbors ignored her screams for help died in prison last week, reports say.

Winston Moseley was 81, and died March 28 at the maximum security Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., after being imprisoned for nearly 52 years for the March 13, 1964, murder of 28-year-old Kitty Genovese, the New York Times reports. 

Patrick Bailey, a spokesman for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, tells the Times a medical examiner will determine the cause of death.

The Geneovese slaying shocked the nation, fueled by reports – some of which were later proved exaggerated – that the woman's screams for help were ignored by her neighbors in the borough of Queens, and that police were never called, the Times reports.

"I didn’t want to get involved," one witness said at the time, the Times reports, adding the excuse "was thought to encapsulate the age."

Moseley earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology in 1977, and afterward, wrote an op-ed piece for the Times, in which he expressed his regret for killing and said he was a changed man, "determined to do constructive, not destructive things," the newspaper reports.

He was repeatedly denied his freedom at a series of parole hearings, the Times reports.

Another high-profile New York killer, Black Liberation Army member Anthony LaBorde – who gunned down Police Officer John Scaragella in 1981 – died Sunday at a medical facility while serving time at Five Points Correction Facility, the New York Post reports. 

He was 62.

LaBorde's official cause of death will be determined and released by the Onondaga County Medical Examiner’s Office, a statement from the state said, according to the Post – but his Brooklyn family is demanding a full investigation.
