There is something so fascinating about true crime. The genre that once had a cult following has gone mainstream, thanks to the success of Netflix's Making a Murderer and podcasts like My Favorite Murder. While everyone has their reasons for getting into the genre, there's something terrifying-yet-alluring about peeking inside the mind of a murderer. Many people take it as far as attempting to solve cold cases themselves, with theories spread all over the internet.

Since Jack the Ripper, and even before then, people have been transfixed by murderers and true crime. There's something compelling about its stranger-than-fiction elements. Of stepping into a world that is so unlike your own, but something that could happen any time at any place. Media — like documentaries, books and podcasts give us that glimpse in the safety of our own homes.
