In the presence of a grim death there is intrigue, horror and yet laughter.
“I think no matter what you do, you have to have a sense of humor. When I’m at work, and dealing with this kind of thing, I’m serious, there’s no kidding, but here we are, and i just have to share some of the weird stuff, because you get weird stuff. “
An opportunity to learn and joke about the macabre is an appeal that many have struggled to ignore.
Serial criminal stories may seem off-putting at first, but for some, it’s all part of the fun.
