Forty years ago today: Columbia junior gunned down walking home in Queens

Virginia Voskerichian, a junior at Barnard College, was shot in the face and killed while walking home in Forest Hills Gardens, Queens. She’d raised her textbooks to her face to try to protect herself. Over the next two days, ballistics would link her murder to the killings of two other women dating back to July 1976. The gun was a Charter Arms Bulldog .44-caliber pistol.
