In the meantime, the 40th anniversary of brutal and senseless murder of the teacher of the deaf, Ms. Roseann Quinn in the Upper West Side on January 1, 1972, still prevails today with the bestseller novel and Hollywood film with the title of "Looking for Mr. Goodbar". Ms. Quinn taught the eight years old deaf kids at the St. Joseph School for the Deaf in Bronx area (New York City). Her body was discovered on January 3, 1973. The New York Daily Times newspaper ran an article about Quinn last January 2011.

The 1970s film with the casting of Diane Keaton and very young Richard Gere which boosted Keaton's film career. Actor Richard Gere did not get the full recognizance until he appeared in the leading role for "Days of Heaven".

The Washington Examiner, a daily free mini-newspaper catered to the commuters of Greater Metropolitian Washington area (DC), did not mention anything "deaf" regarding of the 40th anniversary of "Looking for Mr. Goodbar". http://washingtonexaminer.com/local/crime-punishment/2011/12/crime-history-teachers-slaying-inspiration/2047711

You could view the classic "bedroom knife" scene with Diane Keaton and Richard Gere via YouTube (Note : Richard Gere character was not the killer in the film or in the real life) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DM--m7H8Jpc&feature=related

You could view Diane Keaton signed in ASL - "sorry, hungry", class" by looking at the bathroom mirror in this video clip - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMQzAt2XHa0&feature=related

Ms. Quinn was a hearing lady with the master degree in teaching the deaf at the St. Joseph School for the Deaf in Bronx area. She got whirled in the 1970s' Sexual Revolution and ended up

dead on the New Year 1973. Many people were very shocked about the alleged "double life" of generous and beloved schoolteacher engaged in abusive sexual relationships with male losers beyond imagination of elementary schoolteachers in general.
