The second annual CrimeCon provided what no amount of binge-watching or reading could not: the opportunity for true crime addicts — and they are legion — to meet and mingle with stars of the genre.

Here’s Ryan Ferguson, the hot young Missouri man who spent almost 10 years in prison for murder! Here’s Erin Moriarty, the “48 Hours” correspondent who helped get Ferguson’s wrongful conviction overturned! Also milling about: Kelly Siegler, the terrifying former Texas prosecutor-turned-“Cold Justice” star; Juan Martinez, who successfully convicted Jodi Arias in the brutal murder of her ex-boyfriend; and Callahan Walsh, a child advocate for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

It was the vanishing of Callahan’s brother, Adam, in 1981 —

2 Years After Her Death, Crime Writer Michelle McNamara Credited by Fans With Helping to Find Golden State Killer

Before she died two years ago, true-crime author Michelle McNamara made it her mission to identify a man believed to have committed 12 slayings and at least 50 rapes across California from 1976 to 1986.

On Wednesday — four days after the second anniversary of her death — California authorities finally arrested a suspect, leading McNamara’s fans to credit her with helping to find justice from beyond the grave.

McNamara, who published the website True Crime Diary, was long fascinated by the unsolved case, dubbed the suspect the “Golden State Killer” and investigated it on her own.
