In the famous 1964 "Kitty Genovese" incident, a young woman named Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death outside her home in Queens, New York. Many of Kitty's neighbors heard her desperate screams for help, yet no one called the police until too late. Report of this event shocked the city and the nation, and became the impetus for research on the psychological phenomenon that became known as the "Bystander Effect" by psychologists John Darley and Bibb Latané.
