Anyone spend hours reading about true crime cases and serial killers online like I do? It's very interesting.

Anyone heard of the two girls, Libby German and Abbie Summers, 13 and 14, who were murdered in Delphi, Indiana last February? They were on the historic Monon bridge and vanished with their bodies found next day. So far, 14 months later, no-one's been arrested despite one girl taking a pic of the possible offender and recording his voice saying "down the hill" on her phone. The FBI is rumoured to have more but won't release any more than those three words and haven't released the cause of death. How did he control two girls? Maybe had a gun or knife. They've had thousands of calls about the photo but still no real suspects.

Then there were two girl cousins, 8 and 10, who disappeared whilst riding their bikes near a lake in Iowa and their bodies were found 5 months later. Could be the same bloke.

I have sometimes read the Wiki pages for famous serial killers just out of morbid curiosity. It's horrible but interesting to read about people who got away with such things for such a long time.

I am particularly guilty of getting into morbid Wikipedia loops around the time I have law revision, when there are case studies I want to find out more about laugh.gif I'm definitely a curious person (can tick that one off the journo criteria) so I find it really interesting to learn about serial killers and whatnot.

Yes, have read all about that. There's also a rather famous grim one about a girl caught on CCTV arguing with a man outside a hotel room in the US then found dead in the water tank. She was Chinese or Japanese I think.

Oh yeah the water tank one is hideous.

Slightly random but one event in history that always gives me chills when I think about it is the mass-suicide cultivated by Jim Jones in the 1970s. An astonishing amount of people were willing to go along with it. Listening to the 30 minute clip that was recorded before it happened was not a good idea at like 2am once ages ago.

That would be Elisa Lam

Very chilling case - especially the unresolved issues surrounding it, which you can read about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Elis...resolved_issues

The cops have suggested it was an accident or suicide. However she was seen talking or most likely arguing with a man outside her room earlier though and it's on CCTV. One documentary I saw said she couldn't have got in that huge water tank and closed the cover herself.

Back to the Indiana one. So many people cannot believe they haven't got this guy after she snapped a pic but it's not clear at all. He's slightly bent over and most features aren't apparent despite Nasa and Disney trying to enhance it. They don't even know if he's the killer but most likely is. Such a sad case.

Junko Furuta is a horrific case. Totally barbaric what happened to her.

The Wikipedia articles on these sorts of things are fascinating and horrific reads. My personal favourite for true creeps is Original Night Stalker, partly because without a solving or even identity it's a lot more of an unknown (and the name 'Original' puts him slightly above the likes of Zodiac as this monster that exists in the far off past).

I just read through this and I think I've seen a documentary on it before or something, it's so so saddening and upsetting, and I just balled up at the graduation part. It's very tough, but I think it's definitely worth the read

Have you ever heard some of his phone calls?

HBO released a documentary about this last year. Highly recommended!

I love true crime, especially serial killers, I find it all so interesting. I’ve read lots of books and watched lots of documentaries about the subject and always listening to podcasts about it too. Case file mentioned above is fantastic.

I’ve always been fascinated by the story of Ned Kelly, despite being an outlaw and a murderer he’s seen as a sort of Australian legend and the majority of people here don’t have much idea of the truth behind his story. If you’ve got a spare ~hour I recommend watching this video series https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhyK...s6p43JywAvN_TGl

Very informative and interesting to watch too, there’s also an extra 40 minute “behind the scenes” type of video afterwards which explains some of the myths/mistruths behind his story too
