True Crime Documentaries

If you are a fan of true crime documentaries, here are some good ones I recently watched: 

 

You have most likely heard of this one – I remember watching when originally aired on HBO in the 90s.

This is the follow-up to the Paradise Lost Trilogy

This one is on Netflix streaming and PBS I think – it is also very upsetting

You can see these episodes on CNN and Netflix – each are riveting stories.

On PBS’s website, you can view over 200 episodes of Frontline – this one was insane

This one is HIGHLY unsettling with very graphic crime scene photos – not for the faint of heart.  It is about guns in the home / guns in the hands of children (and many more tragic stories).  I was in tears throughout the entire movie.  You should be able to stream this on the HBO Documentary web page

Lastly, this is another HBO Documentary with a pretty gruesome crime scene photo in the beginning of the film (beware) but this story is horrendous and made me bawl my eyes out.  It is a domestic violence situation that is hard to watch at times.  It is also released under the name “Every F___ing Day of my Life” that I found on YouTube.
