Winston Moseley, who stalked, raped and killed Kitty Genovese in a prolonged knife attack in New York in 1964 while neighbors failed to act on her desperate cries for help — a nightmarish tableau that came to symbolize urban apathy in America.
While at Attica Correctional Facility, in 1968, he escaped while on a hospital visit to Buffalo, raped a woman and held hostages at gunpoint before being recaptured. A psychopathic serial killer and necrophiliac, he died on March 28, 2016 at the maximum security Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y. He had been imprisoned for almost 52 years, since July 7, 1964.
This piece is another from my ongoing series – The “Hunters and The Hunted” artworks designed to call attention to the ongoing physical and mental abuse towards women in our society.
