Any other true crime junkies ??? I been binge watching documentaries and listening to podcast. Great to past the time exercising.

So many sick folk out there and often a screwed up system to catch and keep them off the streets.

    Love me a bit of true crime. Just watched the ted bundy tapes on Netflix. Those guys are sick and I just find their crimes so unbelievable. Interesting to see it from all sides, criminal, victim and the law enforcement and all their different roles to catch the sick *kitten* !

    Also incredible how intelligent some of those killers are, the sociopath etc. They could have lived incredible lives with their high intelligence. Shame they went other way. The shows give good insight into it all, the prisons, court system, forensics etc. And it also reminds you that even the killers are people too, sometimes with families, friends and seemingly living normal lives......They were once innocent kids just growing up in the world...what made them monsters ? I do enjoy these shows!

    I also watched the Bundy tapes this past weekend. Always been interested in his case, but the audio and video of him was intriguing yet disturbing


    I started the Cold podcast today about the Susan Powell case from many years ago

    Lately YouTube has been recommending the punisher now that dude is wild!

    It’s that factual or fiction?

    Yeah I agree. It was rather disturbing to view just how disturbed an individual he was. And able to keep denying his crimes all the while leading his own court case and questioning witnesses (law enforcement officers) in a packed court room. I don't often agree with death sentence but I think he deserved it.

    Don't know what am gona watch next, need to browse netflix later!

    I have seen this and I just don't know what I think about his guilt.
    I do think the wrong people are in jail regarding Making a Murderer though.

    I am a fan of this genre although I find it makes me much more weary of strangers and people in general. Its not like the old days anymore, where you could go places without getting murdered.

    I am obsessed with True Crime right now. I just finished listening to hours worth of podcasts regarding adnan sayed. And honestly I can't decide if he is guilty. Also abducted in plain sight on netflix is CRAZY!! It just kept getting more and more weird. My favorite true crime podcast is Crime Junkies. Those girls do an amazing job with their story telling. Just a warning though almost all of their stories are unsolved so it can leave you feeling incomplete. I don't really understand where this obsession has come from, but I have lived through some gory "crime" myself, so perhaps that is why.. maybe to try and understand them more.. who knows? Either way it passes the time.

    There is a 4 part documentary about to come on about adnan. Also the undisclosed pod cast about it is a good addition to the Serial podcast.

    Yeah I just finished undisclosed, the first season. Serial was amazing. I'm excited about a documentary. Whether he is guilty or not, he really shouldn't be in jail based on what they have. :(

    Is that on Netflix? Or is it a podcast?

    I enjoy the shows, some of the podcasts seem to stretch things out to get a certain number of episodes though

    Podcasts:
    I'm currently listening to Dr. Death.
    Casefile usually has interesting episodes, it's new to me though.
    I've binged The Teacher's Pet, Up and Vanished, and Bear Brook.

    It's definitely interesting that so many serial killers existed during the 70's-90's.

    I have bought the books Sudden Terror (made before Joseph James DeAngelo was caught) & The Stranger Beside Me (Ann Rule's book about Ted Bundy) to read.

    The ones that get to me the most are the torture killers (like Lawrence Bittaker/Roy Norris) or the ones who kill children/elderly since they have a harder time of defending themselves.
