True crime aficionados often take to the highways and byways of the US to visit locations where grisly incidents occurred. There's a whole cottage industry based around some of the most heinous crimes ever committed - nearly every town in America is home to some sort of attrocious history, and chances are good you can revisit the horror via a walking or guided tour.
While tasteful recreations can be fascinating, it's a way more visceral experience to visit the actual homes and businesses where crimes played out in the years past. As "fans" visit these hollowed grounds, the owners usually take one of two stances - either they avoid the spotlight entirely or cash in on their moment of infamy by turning the place into some sort of tourist attraction. Many such sites are still mostly intact as of 2019 should you choose to make the trip, but always remember to be mindful of the owners' wishes for privacy. Anything else might land you in hot water.
