We all know (or have) a mom who considers herself a true crime expert. You know the type: would rather hang out at home in PJs listening to true crime podcasts or watching shows like Snapped than hit up an overcrowded club. Or who, when they do go out, spends the entire night sizing up potential serial killers at the bar. Their idea of stimulating conversation would probably make most people’s stomachs turn, and their friends have probably casually floated the idea of therapy their direction more than once.
Yes, we’re talking about the true-crime lover in your life. If you fall under that umbrella too, you probably call yourself a murderino. If you don’t, you probably have no idea what that means.
