In 2010, the journal, Social Psychological and Personality Science published a paper about a study that was conducted to see whether it was men or women that gravitated towards true crime. The paper, Captured by true crime: Why women are drawn to tales of rape, murder and serial killers found that 70% of reviews on the genre were posted by women.

If I took part in that study I would have been one of the many women that would have answered yes.
