True Crime has become so popular as of late, that there are entire podcasts, blogs, movies, television shows and other forms of media dedicated to true crime. Popular Mechanics magazine stated in a 2019 article that "Americans have long been sensation-seeking spectators...We watch because we are fascinated by the psychopath, how he or she thinks, what motivates him/her, and what he/she will do next.
