Hello, and welcome to my crime blog! I created this blog in 2010 to share my thoughts on older unsolved crimes. My name is Debbie, and I have lived in Illinois my whole life. Raised in a small college town, I now reside 30 miles away in a quieter community. My true crime obsession started in my early 20s when I read Ann Rule’s book, “Small Sacrifices.” Then, I read the heartbreaking story of Jacob Wetterling in People Magazine, and the rest is history. 

Since 2010, I have been a “faceless” blogger, preferring not to show my face online. Back then, I was more aggressive with my articles than I am now. Still, I am not thrilled with putting my face out there. I don’t even do that on my personal social media pages. I like privacy. I am not here for attention.

A Little More About Me

I’m old — 53.😭 If only we could stay 25 forever. My hubs and I have been married for nearly 25 years. We have children from previous marriages and grandchildren. I am currently OBSESSED with Korean Dramas (K-dramas) and have not watched any others for over a year. 🤷 I also love, but not obsessed with, 1980s movies & music, blogging (duh), cooking, and reading. I am an introvert and prefer to not be around people most of the time. Because people suck. Thank you and good night. 😀

Something You Should Know

First and foremost, I do not claim to be a great writer. In fact, I would tell you that I am okay at best. Nevertheless, I’m here to tell you the stories of the victims my way. I am not trying to be better than others out there; I am simply writing what I love.

A few other things:

  • I am not a professional investigator or law enforcement official. I am a simple person interested in true crime who cares about the victims. I do not consider myself an amateur sleuth. Unlike them, I let the professionals do the work. I do not investigate cases.
  • Some people think I am an investigative journalist. How cute, but they are wrong. I am a blogger. There are those in the true crime community who call themselves investigative journalists but are nothing more than podcast hosts. However, if you don’t have the credentials/work experience to back it up, you are not one. Plain and simple.
  • Please do not come here telling me my information is inaccurate. Seriously, don’t. Read the disclaimer. Or kindly FO. You know, whatever.
