The True Crime Community Can Do More
Uncovered is where the most passionate true crime enthusiasts can learn from and teach others. Dig deeper into the stories you’ve heard before, and encounter many others you haven’t, in ways that actually help. At some point, compassion causes entertainment to grow into a need for activism, contribution, and community to solve the stories of real people.
Why Do We Need Your Help?
- Limited Resources
Law enforcement is constrained by policies, budgets, community dynamics, and antiquated technology. With only 10% of agencies having dedicated cold case detectives, the decision to work on new investigations versus old ones is often made for them.
- Limited Voice
Cases go cold and victims’ families spend years frozen in the moment while continuing to look for answers. Often, this forces them to become their own advocate and learn how to fight a system that seems to be working against them.
- Limited Compassion
Society’s obsession with true crime isn’t new, but when the content diminishes the very people whose stories are told while lionizing the perpetrators in the process, a line is crossed. When the goal is entertainment, it can be hard to remember just how real the victim is.
