By all accounts, who cares if it's considered 'weird?' It's probably considred macabre, but that which is so taboo is so very fascinating.
I am addicted to the Investigative Discovery channel and true crime books/movies. They are an intriguing group of individuals with so many layers to be interested in. I think, too, many of us that enjoy reading about them or researching them because it helps us feel a bit prepared...I have found when I spend an entire day watching forensic shows, I am also the most aware of my surroundings... Like I can fend off the killer who tries to break into my home...It may be a false sense of security,but it sure serves its purpose.
