‘The pulling power of true-crime documentaries like Death On The Staircase is a mystery in itself’

Sounds like an outline plot for a classic crime drama. This is not fiction, nor is it proven fact, but it is what is generally believed to be the true-crime narrative true-crime narrative of the murder in 1974 of the Lucan family nanny, Sandra Rivett, by Lord “Lucky” Lucan, and his attempted dispatch of his wife, Veronica. Lucan’s disappearance has been an enduring source of speculation, films, documentaries and literature (not to mention jokes) since he vanished hours after the murder of Sandra Rivett.

With the news of Lady Veronica Lucan’s death last week (as yet unexplained, but not thought to be suspicious) there’s been a predictable rekindling of theories and wild imaginings about Lucan’s subsequent fate. Four decades on, the mystery remains unsolved but the intrigue surrounding the story is as potent as ever.

Our appetite for true-life crime stories is growing exponentially. Over the

What Netflix’s True-Crime Series The Keepers Says About White Power in America

A white priest makes threats with guns, a white child plays with a gun while his relatives allegedly move the body of a dead white nun, a white police officer rapes a girl as a white priest keeps watch—and race is never mentioned. If the perpetrators had been black, they would have been pathologized as representative of black depravity by the police, the church, and the press. If these rapes and murders had happened inside a black church—or even a synagogue, a mosque, or an LGBT community center—these crimes would stand as a larger problem within a marginalized community, regarded as archetypical of the group of people at the center of the scandal.
