true crime

I have had a passion for true crime for as long as I can remember. There is something about it that speaks to me. Maybe reading about other people’s tragedies reminds me of everything I have to be thankful for in mine.

It started when I was 8 with a Bronco chase on a California freeway. It continued when I was 10 with the tragic death of JonBenét Ramsey. And it lives on today in podcast and Reddit rabbit holes.

There is something fascinating about exploring the darkest parts of humankind. To think: there are people out there that are capable of unspeakable acts of violence. It’s equal parts horrifying, unsettling, and exhilarating.

Because of its connections to mental health, I decided to start a semi-regular series about cases that interest me. This page is a work in progress. If you have any suggestions, feel free to email me at: diffusingthetensionblog@gmail.com

What cases do you want to see me feature? Which ones keep you up at night?
