>Any anons in the tcc?
I read posts and books but don't contribute if that counts.
>Any outsiders willing to voice their opinions?
>Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
I guess because it feels like these things might actually happen to you and so you should be aware of them.
>How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
I follow true crime in my own country as well and read stories from around the world.
>Do you have a favorite killer?
No, they are all the same. Think they are so smart but in reality just got lucky.
>Who do you think is a handsome killer?
None, they are all repulsive.
>Why would you be attracted to a serial killer?
I'm not…

>Any anons in the tcc?
Kind of?
>Any outsiders willing to voice their opinions?
I like following true crime/unsolved mysteries, but I hate having a "community" around it where podcasts and youtubers create a little club to identify with. Every time I see someone say "murderinos" or "stay sexy, don't get murdered" I want to die.
>Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
The thrill of digging into the most abhorrent actions and people, like watching a horror movie but in real life. It appeals to the inner vigilante if a killer is caught after a long time. Morbid curiosity and the fascination of a good mystery.
>How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
Violent crimes aren't unique to the US, I don't know what you're trying to get at
>Do you have a favorite killer?
>Who do you think is a handsome killer?
Who cares? That's cringe.
>Why would you be attracted to a serial killer?
Pickme-ism, "I can fix him" syndrome, terminal edginess, sadomasochism, pic related

Women are probably initially attracted to reading these stories to find out how to avoid being the victim. It’s a way to gain scripts of what to do if you’re in unexpected situations. By exposing yourself to them, you think about it more.
Pic related, the Dating Game killer.
Looks, the thrill. Even people who are attracted to them would probably never respond favorably to that same person if they were on the other end. For most hybristiphiles it’s just a fantasy they won’t engage in.

I was pretty active in the Tumblr tcc a few years ago and now I mostly do my own research and watch documentaries in my own time, or I browse true crime-related subreddits. To be honest I fell out of it for a while, but got sucked back in recently. I tend to get really hyperfixated on a specific killer or case, rather than read up on a bunch of cases or watch those series where they focus on a different case every episode. Currently, I've been looking a lot into the Unabomber but I'd love to know what other anons have been looking into. I used to read a lot about mass killers in the past, too.

I blame power electronics for bringing me back here. I was active on Tumblr a few years ago but then I simply stopped caring.
But really, listening to a concept album/track dedicated to a murderer and reading info on them is ultimate True Crime Electronics experience.

Why would we feel any different tho? We have our own serial killers/etc but that doesn't really matter.
>Do you have a favorite killer?
>Who do you think is a handsome killer?
All moids are ugly therefore "handsome" is a non-existent thing to me.

A lot of people like true crime. probably because its like being told a detective story except knowing that this crazy shit actually happened.
i didnt know it was more popular among women, i always new more men into true crime. maybe its more popular among women because we are the primary victims of serial killers and kidnappers. its always a man who kills women. its like a cautionary tale. at least, thats how i view it.

i wouldnt say that i think i think one is handsome, or that one is my favorite, or that im attracted to one. i think theyre gross but fascinating human beings.
idk if this counts, but when i was younger i had a crush on the school shooter from the first AHS season (probably 4 years ago, was 16 then)

Most if not all of "true crime" stories are hoaxes spread by the government to make us afraid of men. It's popular with the female audience because it's pandered and marketed to us.

Anonymous 2452

How does the government benefit from that?

Anonymous 2453

>hoaxes spread by the government to make us afraid of men
you do know that moids are actually really dangerous due to their biology and upbringing, not because big whatever told us they are?

Anonymous 2459

I'm probably wrong but I'm guessing that you're saying that the government doesn't need to make propaganda to make us fear men because they are already dangerous. If that's true then why were women never afraid of men or walking alone at night to the extent of today? Before women could hitchhike, talk to strangers, let guys hit on them, without any fear even with male biology and upbringing. Now because of all the fake serial killers, mass shooters, etc hoaxes spread through true crime propaganda we cant even say hello to guy without fear of him being a murderer.

The hoaxes and propaganda had to be made because women had actually trusted men. If men were as evil as they are made out to be then zodiac killer, ted bundy, jeffrey dahmer, night stalker, and jack the ripper wouldn't exist. We would actually have real murderers not actors hired by the cia. We also would have never trusted men in the first place.

Im not saying guys aren't dangerous though. They can be if they wanted to. There is also plenty of bad guys out there. What I'm saying is that we are being brainwashed to be overly afraid of them. That's how the people who make true crime documentaries, movies, books etc want us to be. Like they want us to never talk to guys especially stangers, never trust men, never be alone with them, etc. They want us to think every guy on the street wants to murder and rape us. When its not true at all.

because women didn't go outside without their "owners" (male relatives or husbands) at all then
moids only can be afraid of fellow moids, this is why some women are still recommended to only walk with their boyfriends at night.

I don't know why I like it so much, the darker side of humanity and its extremes are interesting. I don't find any of them attractive.
I feel a strong bond with Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme. There is something beautiful about their story…
The thing with serial killers is that after looking into them I kind of believe most of them were framed. Like if you have seen Making a Murderer, the evidence against most serial killers is about as compelling as the case the police assembled against Steven Avery. There is a lot more to learn from these cases. Most now believe that Henry Lee Lucas did not commit most of the murders he confessed to. I think we will see similar shifts on other killers
in the next couple decades.

Anonymous 2540

Why is True Crime so focused on serial killers? Most killers are barbaric and stunted. Not interesting at all, just coomer brutes brutalizing to coom. I don't know why they should have recognition or even notoriety.

Can we also talk about scammers, grifters and the like, as long as they're criminal? I just watched a documentary about the Theranos scam and thought it was really interesting. I really want to know how she came so far on absolutely nothing.

why would dahmer be your favorite? the only good thing about dahmer is that he admitted it. did he try to hide behind porno like ted bundy at the end, or no?

Anonymous 3568

Purely because of my interest in cannibalism. I've read a lot about cultural cannibalism and the role it plays in civilisations all over the world. I'm fascinated by what, in a modern urban setting, drives one person to consume another and why it's always somehow tied to sexuality (Dahmer attempted to make sex zombies from his victims. Most cannibals have sexual something going on in the background).

I'm also curious about the taste of human meat. For me it isn't sexual, its just that I've looked into cannibalism so much that I'm curious as to what it's like. Apparently it's close to pork. Similar to pigs, we can have literally every part of us eaten with 0 waste products too

Anonymous 3610

fuuuuuuuuuuuck no. idk how so many girls are okay with those prison penpal situations anyways. unless it's a case where the person is actually innocent or it's a non-violent crime, why the hell would you do this? i have to assume most of these girls arent having these letters sent to PO boxes with false identities, so that's horrifying

Anonymous 3615

I honestly think people write once and then use the reply for research or money if they write to a famous serial killer. You could probably make easy money from a letter sent by Ted Bundy if he happens to write back

As for casual writers who use the prison penal program as a dating pool… well, I genuinely don't see the sense in it. I always wonder what kind of girl intentionally writes in to fish for a violent potentially murderous boyfriend

Anonymous 3618

As someone who wrote to an unknown random murderer from a penpal site looking for a boyfriend, loneliness and depravity. I minimized my risks by obscuring my identity though. I bought a gift debit card at the convenience store with cash, then used that card to purchase a PO box in a different state online under a fake name. Then I wrote letters under that same fake name through the service. Honestly though, what made me stop writing was not him being too evil or anything. He was mostly pretty boring to talk to and when I realized I wasn't actually gonna hang with him, it felt like a waste of time. If you're gonna write to someone, it might as well be one of the insane entertaining ones so you have cool shit to ask them.

It's extremely stupid but I think this was just down to typical random casting or trying to have an attractive cast to draw in an audience. Reminds me of when the news broke that Zac Efron was gonna play Ted Bundy. I haven't seen the movie or plan to. But he actually looks quite like him after all, so in that case it wasn't a completely bogus cast after all.

It wasn't a store. It was Universal studios which tied into her whole absurd lie about the kidnapper "Zanny the nanny" she met through her supposed colleague at Universal who was an old acquaintance and denied it all.

"First witness called to the stand on Thursday was Jeff Hopkins. Casey said Hopkins introduced her to the babysitter she claims kidnapped two-year-old Caylee.

“Did she ever tell you that Zenaida Gonzalez had taken her daughter?”

“No sir,” Hopkins said.

Hopkins said he didn’t have a relationship with a woman named Zenaida Gonzalez and that he never introduced Gonzalez to Casey Anthony.

Lead detective Yuri Melich took the stand again on Thursday morning. Detectives were in a frantic search to find Caylee. Casey Anthony took them to Universal Studios, where she said she worked, to look for a cell phone that stored important numbers. However, assistant manager of loss prevention at Universal Studios Leonard Turtora, who was on the witness stand before Melich, confirmed that she hadn’t worked there since 2006.

“We watched as Ms. Anthony approached the security guard and we could overhear the conversation and in short she said she was an employee but didn’t have her ID,” Melich said. “The guard asked for her name, she gave her name. The guard told her it doesn’t show that you work here.”

Casey then led Melich, Turtora and other detectives around Universal to a building where she claimed she worked.

“We walk into the building, she turns left, starts walking down this hallway,” Melich said. “About halfway down the hallway she stops, turns, looks at us and says ‘I don’t work here.’” "

>Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
There are plenty of reasons, women aren't a hivemind that like the same thing for the same reason.
>How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
It's interesting, but after you get over all the american serial killer stuff and some euro stuff, it's just the same old thing with degenerate men killing prostitutes/little girls/homeless people, no 'charming psychopath' syndrome whatsoever in there.
>Do you have a favorite killer?
I think Richard Chase and Herbert Mullin. I've always been interested in schizo serial killers more. I don't really know why, maybe it's because they're more chaotic
>Who do you think is a handsome killer?
It's a serial killer/mass murderer who happens to be attractive, and therefore attract the freaks out of the corners.
>Why would you be attracted to a serial killer?
The same reason you'd be aroused by any bdsm kinks like strangling or getting your ass bruised, I guess? In my experience, most of those who are strongly attracted to them were also kink degenerates.

I do find Chase attractive and feel bad for him, but knowing that he tortured animals and barely washed I'm glad he's dead.

Something a bit different for once.
Read this, don't spoil yourself

I think she was acting out of trauma, but some of the stuff like the memories of her sexual abuse coming up slowly over time sounded like they were suggested to her? I don't think she was as unaware as she said, but that it was still an expression of her initial trauma (the branding incident)

Anonymous 4818

>Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
I think, for many women, it's a way to cope with the trauma of knowing about the brutality, cruelty and injustice of the real world.
My mom, for example, was obsessed the whole month with the death of a well-known and beloved actor who died recently. Videos of him after being shot, barely conscious and bloody quickly surfaced (he died later at the hospital). He was shot for seemingly no reason by the police. I could tell that this traumatized her and made her very sad, since she would watch videos about it, and read other people's opinions and info on the case all day, every day.
So that's why I think people, especially women (though I didn't know that it was mainly women tbh) are into reading about serial killers and stuff, like trying to find some ray of hope in each case to cure themselves of the trauma they experience when they first find out about them (and also sort of trying to process or understand it). Also morbid curiosity I guess.
>How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
I don't follow YouTube channels or anything (I used to watch YT/TV documentaries occasionally but that was it), I've never been part of this community, but I liked reading about serial killers and stuff. Around the same time I also liked reading about lolcows so I guess it sort of "scratched the same itch". Not into either of the two anymore, though.
I think people here (where I live) like this kind of stuff a little too much. It's super common to see periodicals being sold on the streets that sell because they're full of photos of recent murders. So, naturally, true crime shit appeals to many people here. Can't blame them though, since this place is so violent and reality here is harsher than in your cozy USA.
>Who do you think is a handsome killer?
Does Varg Vikernes count? I fucking hate his retarded ideology and I despise everything about him but I like long-haired guys so I can't help but think he was really cute when he was young (even during his trial). Also people treat him like a huge meme, which is both funny and despicable, but eventually you stop giving a shit. I still hope he dies though.
>Why would you be attracted to a serial killer?
It rarely happens but I would sometimes feel attracted to some personality traits and the appearance of a killer that I associate with my preferred type. Not naming any names, though… I don't think those have been cases of "I could fix him", or at least not consciously; maybe deep down, I unconsciously felt attracted to them because of the aforementioned traits, which I Tend to associate to a type of guy who I can improve.
I think I was able to feel attracted to them because like other ppl have said, there is a distance between you and them. So, even if I am fully aware of the fact that these are real people who committed real murder or other horrible crime, and it sends chills down my spine, I can't help but see them like I see fictional characters when I read about them, with that kind of distance between us. Like, sending letters to real convicted serial murderers or rapists?? That's way too much… I would be terrified if they became more real to me than a Wikipedia article.
The most I've been attracted is just a superficial vague attraction, nothing obsessive or even worse, actually falling in love with them.

I've read somewhere that the serial killers we know about are just the ones that got caught, and that the real intelligent psychopaths who murder people are just careful enough to avoid leaving evidence.
It is possible that some serial killers who "got caught" were actually being framed, and, undoubtedly, some of these stories might've been used by authorities to manipulate the population in some way.

I think he looks better like this tbh, this is what I'm talking about. Some disgusting degenerates look like this but I have a soft spot for that look, goddammit. Yes, I am ashamed to admit it. It's not that big of a deal though, because it's not a big part of my life and I rarely think about it.

I'm very interested in the topic of TCC and have a desire to learn more about serial killers, but I am way too sensitive and prone to paranoia. I end up laying awake, scared to go to sleep because I might get attacked by one.

There is a YouTube channel called That Chapter all about this kinda shit. Usually shorter videos with a lot of light hearted jokes thrown in to keep it from getting too real. Maybe that would be something your paranoia could tolerate?

I like true crime and especially unsolved disappearances shows/podcasts because of how formulaic they are. They introduce the victim, the crime/disappearance, the investigation and conviction if there's one… Knowing what to expect is weirdly soothing.
My favorite true crime case is the Snowtown murders one. Serial killers who started out as pedo-hunting vigilantes before they started killing for profit and for the sake of torturing people. I actually stopped listening to the Casefile podcast after they took down that episode because the host ~misgendered~ the serial child raping tranny that was one of the victims.

Anonymous 5262

I think the case is way played out anyway. There is not really that much to it compared to how much coverage it has gotten. The story last year about the girl whose boyfriend killed her when they were on vacation was interesting and not just the same old "guy kills his family" story with the names changed

No, but there were killers I enjoyed watching about more than others, like Jennifer Pan. Really fascinating story and I can relate a bit

There are hardly any handsome killers lol

I wouldn't be, but I think some women would be because they could see them as possessive and feel a strong desire to be loved so much. Like a yandere I guess

Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
I don't know, I think we're just fascinated. It's a way to reach male violence and try to comprehend it without having to experience it for me. But it's not a passion for me, I just enjoy listening to true crime videos when I clean up or eat as a distraction. I prefer disappearance stories tho, true crime feels like I'm a voyeur and I don't enjoy the way people make it feel "normal" sometimes.

How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
Idk, its just morbid curiosity. French documentaries are very nice btw though. True crime is kinda big here too.

Do you have a favorite killer?
I think Ed Kemper has an interesting persona. Overall I prefer the female ones, the old stories (like, historical stuff) and I'm a big fan of Madame Popova.

Who do you think is a handsome killer?
Paul John Knowles (pic)

Why would you be attracted to a serial killer?
I would not. I only genuinely like some female ones. Serial killers, especially the sexually depraved ones, disgust me. I juste joy the persona. I like Ed Kemper's attitude and that he is intelligent, but it doesn't change the fact that he is a disgusting human being. I could chat with him because he's interesting, but I would not like him. I have never been attracted or obsessed with serial killers even when I was young and had a thing for "crazy people" because serial killers are real, not fictional, and that difference is important.

i love true crime. i think women love the morbid curiosity of it and i feel that a lot of serial killers are known for violence towards women. also many serial killers have mommy issues so idk could be something to do with it.

Anonymous 6190

That's because its linked to violence on women. Like, many serial killers had issues with women, even the ones who didn't target women specifically.
I really hate this fangirling trend over men who killed and raped women but I don't think it's the majority of women.
That's why I prefer to talk about female serial killers like Giulia Tofana or Madame Popova though.

Why are the Parkland victim impact statements so weird, angry and narcissistic compared to other cases?
>Barely mentions his son during the whole statement
>Spends most of his time complaining about the defense and insulting the shooter
>I livestreamed my son's funeral and got 500,000 views, that makes him more important than you
What the fuck. I've seen statements like this for other cases and people are usually, I don't know, sad? They talk about the person they lost and how hard it is not to have them anymore. But in this case the people are acting like they're cussing out somebody who dented their car or destroyed their property or whatever.

I've already read about most serial killers and other TC popular cases, the only one I still have interest in is the Zodiac Killer case.
I think most people consoom TC as entertainment, but it is social suicide to admit it, so they simply say things like "the killer's psyche" or "learn how to protect myself". Nothing wrong with it, just dont act like an edgylord.

>Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
Humans have been fascinated by anything and everything morbid since the dawn of time. I figure women particularly enjoy true crime due to the majority of criminals being male.
>How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
I've seen plenty of Europeans, Brazilians and a few Japanese during my time in the TCC. Most, but not all, of them focused on American murderers. Based off my experiences, Brazilians tend to discuss killers from their country more than the others.

Nice try, FBI.

If someone I found attractive turned out to be a serial killer, I'd still find them attractive.

Nonas how do we feel about the latest school shooter being a 28-year-old woman?

Anonymous 8714

It is strange how the "troubled teen" variety of school shooter actually seems to have ended with Columbine rather than being kicked off by it. The actual modern school shooter isn't the late 20th century archetypal shooter at all, being both older and completely unrelated to the school in question. There is still a tendency to lump the distinct post-2010s killers and the previous era together.
The woman who kicked off what are considered "modern" shooters, Brenda "I Don't Like Mondays" Spencer, was a lesbian teenager.
She's sometimes called "the first school shooter" by commentators even though there were plenty of school firearms murders before her. Those usually hit a much different profile than the school shooter, e.g. gang violence, workplace "postal" killings, racially motivated murders etc. Brenda was a pioneer in the troubled teen genre. But that genre doesn't seem to have legs anymore. It's all unemployable 20-somethings now.

If I remember right Eric and Dylan weren't even bullied that much though

Anonymous 8716

My first thought was that she was probably a shooter's fangirl. Learning she was ftm doesn't change that theory but it makes the case stranger

Anonymous 8719

That's true. Eric in particular was more the bully than the bullied.

If that turns out to be true it would make me wonder why there aren't more violent fangirls. There have been women who went on killing sprees in the past and the true crime community is so huge that you'd expect every single woman who murders anyone to come from a TCC background, but it seems like there isn't that strong of a relationship. Even at the extreme end, hybristophiles seem to trend closer to Dallas Humber and to Lindsay Souvannarath–adult women who essentially groomed younger males to become spree killers–than to Laurie Dann. Maybe the average Columbiner isn't capable of mindbreaking boys to build a harem of killer simps but it seems like without the killer male under her command she just wouldn't ever try to kill at all. And if transitioning to male provided Aidan Hale with whatever resonance of male energy required to satisfy that prerequisite then I'd expect there to be many more killer Aidans than there are in reality.

Anonymous 8870

Are there any decent, relatively active communities for discussing mass murderers left?

Anonymous 8881

the unemployable 20 something murderers and the troubled teens are the same in the sense they are both giant losers who glorify killings and think by becoming a mass murderer they will be remembered and worshipped. They aren't intelligent enough to be serial killers and they don't actually derive any pleasure from killing, they just lack enough empathy to be able to go through with their desperate plea for attention.

Anonymous 8889

r/masskillers is pretty active- not sure if you're already part of that community. They do a pretty good job of controlling the discussion so that romanticizers or people who just a-log and don't contribute to discussion are discouraged from posting. Plus because of how active it is, you get a lot of breaking information especially from people who obtain information through FOIAs.

It's not ideal, but that's the only one I'm apart of and know of. There's not as much discussion as I'd like though. Plus since it's Reddit, people rehash the same questions and discussion points over and over again. I might be biased due to nostalgia's sake, but I feel like the tumblr tcc actually had more active discussion where you actually learned stuff and people had interesting theories, despite all the romanticization and hybristophilia. On reddit, people bring up the same points all the time. "Oh did you know Martin Bryant had a 66 IQ?" "Did you know Adam Lanza was anorexic and only weighed 112 pounds?" "Did you know Brenton Tarrant livestreamed his massacre?" I'd assume if you were getting into a community of research about mass killers that this should all be prerequisite knowledge that we don't need to keep hashing out over and over. Sorry for sperging. I wish I had a better suggestion than Reddit.

That sounds about right. I just saw the AcademyManiacs subreddit and it's really disturbing - people drawing some yaoi fanart of the killers, saying pickme shit about them and generally typing like infatuated 12-year old girls. How is this allowed yet subreddits like TIA that call out troon BS get taken down?

in my experience they seem to be ok with newfags. i joined the previous iteration of the group by also sending a request, they accepted it without question on the next day. i don't have vk anymore so idk what's in the second one though
>How is this allowed yet subreddits like TIA that call out troon BS get taken down?
because "worship moid = good, call out moid = bad" (even if the moid universally deserves disdain. all moids deserve disdain from women but some are worse and are hated by fellow moids too, but unlike women (sadly) they have "moid solidarity" and in an inter-sex/gender conflict they always pick the side of the moid/TIM even if the moid is a fucking asshole and the woman is a nobel peace prize winner)
though i'd argue that yaoi fanart is much better than the extreme fetish rape-on-tape ("porn") subs

I don't know, i think it's popular because its interesting. It might be popular among women because we want to learn to protect ourselves and i guess know what not to do or red flags to look for in a person.

Anonymous 9837


I occasionally consume it myself but still realize it is only to quell my morbid curiosity. Unless it is related to your career (Like law or psychology), there is very little educational or other practical benefit to be had from consuming true crime, so I'm not sure it can be consumed in a "moral" way at all. People lie to themselves, saying it could be used to protect them, but there are serial killers that fully convince their own psychologists and lawyers that there is nothing wrong with them. I don't think true crime is going to make you better at protecting yourself from someone like that.

No matter how you look at it, 99.9% of people just regularly consume it as a byproduct of a peaceful, uneventful life that they want to find something new, exciting or interesting in. Equally fucked up or even worse murders constantly happen in thirdies but those don't have a whole entire fan community dedicated to them. I'm not surprised as to why.

Anonymous 9839

I agree with you, speacially about having no moral way of consuming it.
But I also find myself to be a bit of a hypocrite for getting annoyed by the virtue signaling crowd, but also admiting to myself that I, in fact, view most of true crime content as entertainment. I would never say it in other true crime communities because it is unethical and very edgylike tho.

Anonymous 9844


Eh, most people do carry some kind of hypocriticism. For instance, I feel morally opposed to eating dog or horse, but refuse to quit eating beef or pork. Vegeterians probably find that hypocritical, and maybe it is, but it's a personal choice. So is consuming true crime. It's important to be aware of that to not cross boundaries beyond mere hypocriticism, though. Like having blatant disrespect. Even though I eat beef and pork, obviously I don't like the idea of killing animals inhumanely like supporting Chinese Dog Festivals. In the same light, I'm not going to support the Jeffrey Dahmer Netflix show that was made without even bothering to contact any victims for their consent in being portrayed in it and merely to sensationalize serial killers to a bunch of stupid TikTokers.

I may have some hypocriticisms, but I'm not completely unethical. For example, becoming one of those TCC fans that draws yaoi fanart of serial killers and tattoos them on their shoulder is crossing a line. Merely looking up information about them and discussing them isn't.

Morbid curiosity. I also find it makes me feel grateful for being at least not murdered/raped etc. Also I like knowing the depths of depravity humans are capable of. I used to think it was exclusively males but I'm getting more into forms of crime by women (and not just ones you'd obviously be sympathetic to if you weren't a massive sexist - e.g. Aileen Wuornos). These forms of crime have much more complex but equally sinister nature (think women with Munchausens by proxy, cluster B personality disorders etc.).
>How do non-Americans feel about the subject?
idk if Canadians really count as non-Americans, but I think the Canadian justice system treats them too lightly. I think Singapore deals with criminals the best, which is why I felt the most safe and free when I lived there out of anywhere.
