A Fun Way to Find Old & Obscure True Crime News Stories

It’s Friday night, and while you pathetic creatures are busy getting high and trying to find fornication partners, I am, as always, feeding the thirst of My brilliant brain, in glorious isolation. When this thirst is bloody, and it often is, I seek out and immerse within new and interesting true crime news stories.

An excellent resource for this form of mind recreation is the Google Newspaper Archive. It allows you to search thousands of different print newspapers, dating back to 1800, in some cases. You simply type in a search word or phrase, and hit the “Search Archive” button.

Here is the direct url:

To find some real gems dating back 50 to 200 years, I would suggest you try words/phrases like “maniac” “berserk” “amok” “deranged” “crazy killer” insane man” “rampage”. Try it. Don’t use phrases like “active shooter”, that’s too new and won’t get you the vintage stuff.

Below are 5 or 6 really cool items I found today. Enjoy!
