What makes good people go bad? What drives bad people to go over the line? What makes a murderer kill and kill again? And what separates us from them? The extremes of human behavior, the causes of it, and its consequences have always fascinated us, perhaps nowhere more so than in the true crime account. 

 
So for those of you who, like us, have been hooked on recent true crime television hits like Serial, Making a Murderer, and Killing Fields, we've assembled a broad sampling of real-life crime, conspiracy, investigation, and punishment over the centuries. Here are history-making assassinations and sensational London murders, Mafia hit men and desperadoes on a killing spree, crimes of passion and any number of poisonings, scandals, plots, and beheadings.
