I guess because it feels like these things might actually happen to you and so you should be aware of them.

I follow true crime in my own country as well and read stories from around the world.

No, they are all the same. Think they are so smart but in reality just got lucky.

>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?
No
>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

Yes.
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.
Yes.
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.

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 2459

>>2453
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…
>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parker%E2%80%93Hulme_murder_case
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.

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

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 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.’” "

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.

>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 don't remember anything I read about him, or if I even knew who he is, but judging by the previous post I'm guessing he's a cannibal)

>Specifically, its appeal to women and how the podcasters use the material to sell cameras/home security systems, etc.
Interesting, thanks for this. Naturally, some people use even True Crime to make profits, not surprising.

And sorry for replying to months-old posts… Hope that's not a bannable offense.

I think the sexual abuse was real but the branding incident was fake.

I thought the branding attack was confirmed via newspapers?

Oh, I do think she was branded but I think she did it herself.

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.

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

If you're still around, do you have any recommendations for shows, podcasts or even YouTubers? I also really enjoy the formulaic ones and have been struggling to find those in the flood of new content creators because true crime is so popular now.

>Any anons in the tcc?
Not really in the community but I do watch true crime YT videos from time to time.
>Why is true Crime so popular, especially with the woman audience?
I'm not sure, maybe like how other s said, to be aware.
>Do you have a favorite killer?
No, but there were killers I enjoyed watching about more than others, like Jennifer Pan. Really fascinating story and I can relate a bit
>Who do you think is a handsome killer?
There are hardly any handsome killers lol
>Why would you be attracted to a serial killer?
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

I think Martin Bryant was really attractive. Plus the fact he has aspergers and was misunderstood gives me cringy "I could have helped him" feelings.

Martin used to be cute. Some old bat who had the hots for him left him her inheritance. He also had a girlfriend for years, but he drove her off with his retardation. Now he's a bald old fatty. Time truly spares no moid.
What do you think about Patrick Purdy? He was another low-IQ demotivated shooter with a sad life.
