A Tumblr for anything and everything that falls under the True Crime umbrella. Serial Killers, Mass Shooters, Psychopaths, Inmates, Mobsters, Terrorists, Teen Killers, Deceased Killers, Prison Life, Murderabilia / True Crime Artifacts, Writing to Inmates, Books / Films, Pictures, etc. Any Asks pertaining to those subjects are welcomed and encouraged. I'm an extremely visual person so I enjoy posting as many pictures as possible. This page was created for those interested in all things True Crime and are seeking to learn more, start writing inmates, or share their knowledge. I will be posting original content & reblogging from other awesome True Crime blogs. I will answer any questions about writing to inmates to the best of my ability. This blog is purely to educate and share true crime information and showcase some of the true crime artifacts I collect; I am not "attracted" to any of the people I blog about. My personal blog? mormondyke.tumblr.com. My girlfriend is thedeathmerchant, and we will probably get married soon and drink wine right out of the bottle at our wedding, sorry but we're not sorry.
Thank you so much for looking at/enjoying the blog!
Yes, I correspond with many people who are currently incarcerated. I’d say to date I’ve corresponded with well over 70 inmates on and off, in the US, UK, and Australia, both male and female. (But mostly male, for some reason females don’t seem to want to talk to me—-since I’m female myself.)
Ok, let me just say I love the show MSNBC Lockup. My personal favorite? Bobby Ray Gilbert of Holman (Alabama) fame. Actually, my close friend Jessika (Tumblr name thedeathmerchant) is engaged to him—-and he is an amazing guy.
I always encourage people to write if they are interested. I’ve always been the type to dive into things, so simply watching shows about inmates or reading True Crime books was not enough.
I can’t tell you what to SAY to an inmate you wish to write to, all I can tell you is to be yourself. That’s the most important thing—-just be real and honest.
