Clip | 12m 35s

The year was 1964. Kitty Genovese, a 28-year-old bar manager, was on her way home from work when she was attacked, raped and murdered. Her cries rang out through a sleepy Queens neighborhood. Legend has it that as many as 38 people heard what was going on and did nothing to stop it. That story soon spread around the world, but is that what really happened? We talk to Kitty's brother, William.
