True Crime

True Crime, articles, oversight
True crime means that it’s about real facts and the stories following are as close to the truth as possible.
As a disclaimer, I have to add that details might differ, because of conflicting sources.
As a writer, you can’t ignore that a certain part might have happened slightly differently.
People, in the shape of witnesses and newspaper reporters, pass their statements along. They each have their own way of perceiving events.
I, as a writer, wasn’t there. I have to rely on those sources, but they might have their facts wrong. For that reason only, I say my articles and stories have a ‘based on’ part included.
