The footprint that caught Richard Ramirez. At the time, Ramirez bought a new pair of shoes that were extremely unique and rather easily traceable. Were it not for this footprint, Ramirez might have still been killing to this day.

ok so usually i find the true crime community’s blogs really interesting as i’m into crime and like to read on the tags and stuff, but then sometimes i’m taken aback and astounded by posts like these and it actually makes me question the whole point of the true crime community.
i thought it was to be informed of crime etc and to discuss what murderers did or whatever, however it has become a worshipping community of those who have wronged others in one of the worst ways?
the way these people are talking about eric harris is the way young teens talk about justin bieber or someone of the like.
most of the people i have talked to and discussed with in the tcc are really nice people who are genuinely interested in the psychology of the killers and what they did
however it’s people like this that really let the side down and talk about eric harris and others like richard ramirez and the newly romanticised dylann roof as if they are the boy you fancy at school and it kinda makes me sick
A message left behind by the Lipstick Killer (dubbed that for this very message). Although William Heirens confessed to the 3 murders tied to this case, he later recanted his confession and blamed the police for their brutality and questionable interrogation methods. If what Heirens says is true, the Lipstick killer case still remains unsolved to this day.
After being charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 20, 1989, for the killings of their father, defense lawyers say they acted out of fear for their lives. Three days after Lyle Menendez had threatened to disclose years of sexual abuse by his father. They say Jose Menendez sexually molested his older son from the ages of 6 to 8 and his younger son from the ages of 6 to 18.The brothers are claiming self-defense in the same manner that battered wives have successfully argued that killings of abusive husbands are justified even at a moment when they are not under physical attack.
Like or reblog this if you have a crime blog, or have shown interest in a crime, and you’ve been told you’re a freak, psychopath, or a future murderer. I want to see how many people are personally bashed for their interests.
People are afraid of calling serial killers with their own name. They prefer to call them “The Monster”, “The Cannibal”, “The Vampire”, “The Lady Killer”, as if their name were dangerous. Remember that they were PEOPLE, not monsters. They were HUMAN, and that’s why we “"humanize”“ them; because they were not plants, not monsters, not animals. Just humans as we are.
Photograph of one of the D.C. Snipers crime scenes, prior to the removal of the body of Sarah Ramos. 34 year old Ramos had been shot shortly after she had left her bus and sat down to read her book on the bench. The D.C. Sniper spree shootings resulted in ten deaths and three injuries, and were committed by John Allen Muhammed and Lee Boyd Malvo(who was only 17 years old at the time of the crimes). In total their true body count was 17 deaths, due to crimes they had committed prior to starting their shooting spree.
The average serial killer has an IQ 94.7. Although various tests measure IQ, a score of 90 to 110 is usually considered “average” intelligence. A serial killer with average IQ is also the most likely to strangle or shoot their victims. Serial killers who have used bombs show, on average, higher IQs, while those who used poison exhibited the lowest.
