Marjorie and Samuel Koshkin lived in the West Virginia apartment building and were witnesses to the death of Kitty Genovese on March 13, 1964. Winston Moseley had parked his car near there. Because of the placement of their apartment on the end of the building, they were able to see most of the murder, and hear Kitty Genovese screaming that she had been stabbed. Samuel Koshkin was going to call the police, but Marjorie convinced him not to because other people had probably called. She also stopped him from going out to get Moseley's license plate number, because she was afraid he too would be stabbed.
