“It’s been there since I was about 13 or 14 years old,” Dionne says about her penchant for crime stories. “Around that age I started watching true crime on TV. It always triggered me somehow and then I searched the internet to see if I could find more about it.”

The first murder case that affected her was that of JonBenét Ramsey, the American beauty queen. “That girl and I were also the same age when she was killed, so it kind of grew with me. It also became the first topic of both my YouTube series and the murder castmy podcast series.”
