Crime & Investigation

Serial Killers - Richard Cottingham

Richard Cottingham is one of the most barbaric serial killers in America who is currently serving a life sentence for torturing, murdering, and dismembering women.

Hailing from New Jersey, Richard operated in New York between 1967 and 1980. He was nicknamed 'the torso killer', due to his habit of dismembering his victims, usually leaving nothing but a torso behind. In one case, he dismembered two prostitutes in a motel room, taking the hands and heads with him before setting the room on fire. He was eventually convicted of murder in 1981 after being caught fleeing an attempted murder.
