Truth is, people find murder stories absolutely spine-tingling. And sometimes the more gruesome the murder, the better. When a person sees a gripping headline, it makes one wonder how something like this could have occurred. Once a person gets into the meat of a case, hearing all sorts of tiny details and fascinating tidbits makes the story all that much more compelling.
But more than that. There has to be some aspect of the story that connects with people, a story that pulls the reader (or the listener) in. It has to be a story that makes you “feel” for the victim. Nothing resonates with the American public more than seeing a person wronged. The immediate response is always a feeling of wanting to see justice. And there’s something else. In order for the media or the public to become intrigued by a killer — possibly making the murderer famous — it helps if the killer is beautiful or handsome. And the case has to include sex — lots of sex.
In the case of Jodi Arias, we saw pictures of a plain, dark-haired woman with glasses who went from matronly to seductive when her hair suddenly turned blonde and the glasses came off. Then we heard all the salacious details, which included information about their sexual activities — the frequency in which they engaged in sex, and the video taping of the their sexual escapades. Those are the “deets” that make for a exciting and engrossing case.
Don’t forget. The Jodi Arias story airs tonight. So grab a partner and some popcorn and be in front of your TV sets at 9 p.m. central on Reelzchannel. #Murderfamous
