The infamous serial slayer known as the “Torso Killer’’ because of the way he carved up some of his victims is set to plead guilty Monday in the brutal murders of five Long Island women. Richard Cottingham, 76, is already serving a life sentence in New Jersey, where he was convicted of killing six other women between 1967 and 1980. The former computer programmer and once-married dad of three is now expected to admit to the 1968 rape and murder of dance teacher Diane Cusick, as well as the slayings of four other women in Nassau County in 1972 and 1973,...

NYC’s plan to close Rikers Island jail complex is not going to cut it

If New York City closes the jail complex on Rikers Island, as it is slated to do in 2027, the “borough-based jails” erected in its place will leave the city with room for just 3,300 detainees. That’s nowhere near enough, I argue in a new Manhattan Institute report: Nearly 6,000 people are on Rikers right now, and with crime still rising, that population will only grow.  Some people aren’t convinced. Speaking to The Post, state Senate Correction Chair Julia Salazar (D-Brooklyn), a leading advocate of closure, claimed that the report didn’t consider how jailing fewer people for minor crimes might make...

‘Torso Killer’ Will Cop to Five More Murders: Report

A convicted serial killer and rapist who says he has murdered at least 100 women is expected to admit to the murders of five more victims after a DNA hit linked the killer to several unsolved crimes. Richard Cottingham, dubbed the “Torso Killer” for his tendency to dismember some of his victims, will reportedly plead guilty Monday to the 1968 murder of dance teacher Diane Cusick, along with the slayings of four other women on Long Island. Cusick was a mother who went out to buy dance shoes at the mall one day and never returned home. Sources told NewsDay that Cottingham will admit to 23-year-old Cusick’s strangling in return for immunity from prosecution in the other four killings. Cottingham is already spending life in prison after he was convicted of the murders of eight young women and girls but claims to have killed nearly 100 women across New Jersey and New York from the late 1960s to before his 1980 arrest.Read it at Newsday
