The dark side of society can be as fascinating as it is scary. The psychology of murder can captivate scholars and the average joe alike with its violent twists and turns. For many people the complexities of murder and violent crime become more than just a job or a hobby and become a personal passion. There are several tours of famous murder sites across the country for those who are interested in criminal history and murderabilia.




The manson murders will forever be known across the world as one of the most horrific murder sprees in history. Charles manson and his hippy family communed together on an old movie ranch and conspired to wreak havoc with murder and mayhem throughout the valleys of Southern California. They commited two sets of murders in two seperate houses in California that still stand today. There are several tours of these sites as well as those including the ranch where the Manson family lived and sites of other crimes.



The Villisca ax murders took place in 1912 in a residential farm house in villisca, Iowa. Josiah B. Moore, his wife, his four children and two neighbor children were axed to death as they lay in bed. The mystery of who murdered this family and the two small girls was never solved. The ax murder house, cemetary where the victims are buried and a museum are all available to tour and peruse. Many stories surround the deaths in the home. The owners, visitors and guests have tales of ghostly apparitions, strange sounds and unexeplained pheominon in the house. Psychics have claimed to feel spirit auras in the house and have recorded incidents on tape. Overnight bookings are also available.



These types of tours give a special insight to the crimes that would otherwise be impossible. Spending time inside the same space where once a grisley murder occurred makes it impossible to look at the crimes like a story in a book but realize the true depths of human loss for those involved.

The Most Beautiful Girls to Ever Kill Their Own Mother

As human beings, we have trouble fathoming the idea of a young girl committing so atrocious a crime as murder. Much less, the murder of her own mother. The concept becomes even more inconceivable when it pertains to a beautiful young woman beautiful young woman with a loving family and the world at her fingertips. These girls aren't all women in prison now. Some have been released and disappeared into the mainstream. Scary, huh?  Nakisha Waddell     At age 14, Nakisha Waddell stabbed her mother, Vaughne Thomas, 43 times in their Virginia home. In court, she said she was tired of the years of fighting and just exploded. Her 15-year-old friend, Annie Belcher, helped her dig a grave in the backyard. The pair poured alcohol and nail polish remover on the dead woman and tried to ignite her to no avail.  They eventually mixed a crude concrete mixture and poured it on top of her and finished by covering her with sticks, leaves, and yard debris. She gives no reason or excuse o

Tina Brown, Heather Lee, & 16 YO Britnee Miller Killed Over Teen Jealousy

The first thing I thought of when I found this lady, Tina Brown, was that old Texas case where that mom went ballistic and tried to hire a hitman to kill her daughter's cheerleading rival. Wanda -something -or -other was her name. My sister lives close to her still. This story is even more brutal, if you can believe that. Tina's 16-year-old daughter, Britnee was on and off besties with another gal in their Pensacola, Florida trailer park, Audreanna Zimmerman. Like many teen friendships, it ran hot and cold depending on the current drama in the trailer park. In March of 2010, it was frigid and it was all over a boy. Audreanna Zimmerman Police reports say Britnee complained to her mom, Tina, and a neighbor, 27-year-old, Heather Lee, about the ongoing arguments with Audreanna, already a mom of two at 19-years-old. The trio decided to find her and hem her up so Britnee could fight her. Things got out of hand, They found Audreanna walking along a dirt road. Tina Brown u

Darlie Routier Texas

I was contacted by a penpal of Darlie Routier's who gave me some of the most recent advances in her case to share with you all. I began writing to Darlie in December of 2005 and she is one woman whom I will never understand how she got behind bars. Really. You know what else? With all the information ALREADY out there about this case, in addition to the newly discovered info, I think if you can't see this poor woman's innocence, you may just be an asshole. So many legal flubs, so much question and police innuendo that turned out to be nothing. So many fingers pointed and road blocks thrown up, I am surprised this case isn't used in other countries to point to the clusterfuck we call a justice system.  I believe Darlie could have been released ages ago if the state had done the necessary DNA testing. Sadly, Texas has tried to stop it in every unconstitutional way they could pull out of a bull's ass. BUT- there is hope on the horizon. This from Camp Darlie
