Twelve of the Best True Crime Entertainment Sources

One would be surprised how many people out there are obsessed with true crime and the gritty details that accompany the grisly topic. I, myself, fall into this category--mainly due to my fascination with the overarching question of all documentaries, docu-series, podcasts, and shows: why did they do it?

I have spent the last few years sifting through various listicles, reviews, and Google-searches with the goal of finding the best, and most interesting, true crime content. Below are the 12 I have laboriously decided to be “the best”.
