New A&E Special on the Torso Killer


A&E Network has lined up The Torso Killer Confessions, a new special in which tri-state area serial killer Richard Cottingham admits to a previously unsolved murder.

Set to air on March 9 and 10, the two-parter sees Detective Robert Anzilotti obtain a new confession from Cottingham for the murder of Mary Ann Della Sala, whose death in January 1967 was never solved.

In addition to the new confession, the series features in-depth interviews with Anzilotti, never-before-heard audio tapes of the men’s conversations, exclusive footage and multiple confessions from Cottingham regarding his recent headline-making killings never heard on tape.

The Torso Killer Confessions is produced by Cineflix Productions in association with A&E Network.

“Through our partnership with Detective Anzilotti and hours of exclusive tapes and footage, The Torso Killer Confessions is a prime example of A&E’s ability to continually lead within the true crime genre with bold and powerful storytelling,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, executive VP and head of programming for A&E. “We are proud to share these stories of long-awaited justice and bring to light new details about a case many thought they knew.”
