Linkage Blindess: IdiditforJodie’s True Crime Links

Posted: August 30, 2014 in Uncategorized

Robison-FamilyCoined in 1984, the term linkage blindness refers to an inability to spot homicidal connections during a serial murder investigation. Linkage is important in all facets of life, and someone who understands the internet far better than I has been endlessly emphasizing the importance of adding links to other pages on this blog.

Peer pressure is a powerful motivator, and I’ve thus decided to post a monthly compendium of true crime gallimaufry that has piqued my interest. Please feel free to send suggestions if you’ve recently come across any articles/shows/sites that made you obsessively check your door and window locks.

      Absolutely amazing suggestion—I’ll put it in the next installment:)
