The death of a woman who was found in the car park of a shopping mall five decades ago in New York’s Long Island has been linked to the so-called “Torso Killer”.

The suspect, Richard Cottingham, who is believed to be one of America’s most prolific serial killers, was arraigned Wednesday on a second-degree murder charge in connection with Diane Cusick’s 1968 killing.
