Crime never takes a day off, and neither do we. Every day, we flip back the calendar and examine a true crime event from the same date years ago. It might be the anniversary of an important case being solved, the end of a landmark trial, or a serial killer’s birthday-- whatever the date, there’s no ordinary day in true crime history.
