Crime does pay. It pays for writers and reporters. Not to mention forensic technicians and criminologists. Moreover, crime fascinates us. In launching Popular Crime, we’ve chosen to examine both the crimes and our fascination with them.
I set this site up to track current crimes. The curated coverage will update daily and as events break.
Additionally, we’re going to get historical. That means we’ll look into past crimes. As a result, we’ll talk to authors and investigators. Together with the interviews and news stories, we’ll build a comprehensive archive of past and present popular crime.
We welcome you on this journey.
