I noticed in Dropzone’s thread that a few people mentioned being true-crime buffs. Not commiting them, I assume, but reading about them.
I prefer the ones old enough to be “historical,” so I don’t feel as guilty about any relatives still being alive . . . You know, Lizzie Borden, Wm. Desmond Taylor, the Benders (the killer family out west, not the robot), Winnie Ruth Judd. I love those TLC and A&E specials, though most of them use talent-free out-of-work summer stock actors to do “re-enactments,” which annoys the hell outta me.
So, what are your favorite true crimes? Who do you think actually did in the Bordens, Wm. Desmond Taylor, and the Black Dahlia?
