27 Jan Why Are People Interested in True Crime? – Quora
So many crimes, so little time!
I am a huge fan of true crime in any media form. From documentaries, to podcasts, to books, I cannot seem to get enough. The main reason that I am so interested in true crime is to try and understand what experiences and trauma led an individual to do some of the most unthinkable acts.
My favourite part of a case breakdown is when we get to dive deep in the criminal’s past. Many times, their childhoods and family members close to them can give pretty strong clues as to how they chose this path. This is not always the case though, and these inconsistencies keep me on my toes and wanting more.
There will always be the argument of nature vs. nurture, I personally believe that it is a little bit of both. Yes, there are some criminals who had a picture perfect life before going off the deep end and then there’s the complete opposite. Although the reasoning for why people do what they do is still hella ambiguous, the fun of it is taking the information presented to you and making your own storyline.
Go ahead, get lost in that super morbid case and play detective for a little bit!
