Newspapers call their archives the morgue. I love that. This is probably because so many stories were about murder and crime. I'm archiving the present state of crime, punishment and journalism. I love true crime stories. Join me as I curate and collect the best current cases. Additionally, we'll review past crimes that intrigued and fascinated the public. It's murder and mayhem for the masses.
