The term "crime scene" may cause us to think of a pseudo-noir montage: a glossy detective show, caution tape blowing in the wind, blue and red lights flashing wildly, and a detective taking off his sunglasses while uttering a witty pun. But crime isn't limited to primetime, and the truth is that the most horrifying acts are the real-life ones - the ones too gruesome to be shown on TV. They're the bloody, deranged, tragic scenes that shocked police.
