so I read something totally out of the ordinary mainly probably because I'm just intrigued by whodunnits especially when it's true fact stuff.

Site I go on sometimes is about crimes so it may be somewhat triggering to some, so please be aware that there might be some content disturbing to you:

Anyone else read up on this stuff, just out of curiousity or to get more information after possibly seeing movies based on it?

Link below for anyone who wants to have a look:

Great website! I've never been on it before.. I just bookmarked it! (I also wondered how and why so I've been into reading this sort of thing since I was TOO young to be reading this stuff!)

I think the intrigue for me is what the heck goes on in their minds and what makes them tick ... I also like following the investigations as well.

So I just found this part of JM... and I must say I'm TOO EXCITED for my own good!

One of my favorite genres to read is true crime. I must say if you enjoy true crime books the one writer I'm loyal too and will read all her books before long is Ann Rule! I highly recommend her if you haven't read her works.

The Ann Rule book you should start with is called "The Stranger Beside Me" It's about Ted Bundy, she normally doesn't write about the BIG cases as they already get so much coverage but of the ones that no one hears about but that are so devasting. The reason she took the Ted Bundy book is that she got the deal before the investigators knew that it was Ted Bundy... She worked with him on a crisis hotline.... it's a very unique take on such a notorious crime!

She also does a lot of background on the criminals... it gives you WAY more insight into the criminals mind... which is my favorite part I must say!

I'm currently reading about The West Side Rapist out of Cleveland, Ohio as I live in Ohio...

I'm going now to check out the site you linked... I'm sure I'll love it!!! Cursed firewall at work won't let me look at it... I'll definitely take a look at it tonight at home!
