they caught him.

they caught the east area rapist/visalia ransaker/golden state killer. it’s the next day, and it still doesn’t seem real.  i legit cried at my desk yesterday at work because i was so happy and relieved and excited.  mostly, i was crying because michelle mcnamara didn’t live to see it.  and she so deserved to. but her husband picked up the torch and led the way… Continue reading they caught him.

diving into MFM has really changed my perspective on myself and i am much more open about my interest in true crime.  the community is amazing.  it’s supportive, diverse, open, and socially conscious.  but one of the things that happened when we began to share on such a large scale was/is that it is drawn into the… Continue reading 3•19 | murderino monday

  one of the questions that comes up a lot on MFM is – what is your gateway murder?  in other words, what is the murder that got you fully into true crime? i have thought about it.  i’m not sure.  i think it probably is charles manson.  i wasn’t alive when the murders occurred,… Continue reading 12•18 | murderino monday
