The Best True Crime Documentaries

Facts: My Netflix queue looks like I’m learning how to be a murderer. You see, my obsession with the macabre began with Dateline and has most recently spilled over into the podcast space with podcasts such as Crime Junkie, Your Own Backyard and Over My Dead Body. Thanks to the recent proliferation of true crime documentaries on every streaming platform imaginable, I can always play armchair detective and have unearthed and viewed the greatest true crime documentaries to date. Below, I share that list with you and I encourage you all to comment with any true crime docs I may have glazed over.
