Top 5 Netflix True Crime Docos You May Have Missed
Think you’ve seen everything on Netflix? We’ve unearthed a few hidden true crime gems that may have slipped under your radar.

5. Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes

America’s most notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy went on a killing spree across the USA.

Once he was caught (spoiler) he wasn’t shy about spilling the beans. He retells his story to the police, accompanied by accounts from the cops who were hot on his heels. Although he felt like he was “just a normal individual”, I’m sure once you’ve heard his recordings, you’ll disagree.

4. Heist

Bringing a lighter tone to the true crime genre, Heist features different stories and interviews from criminals who stole millions of dollars and got away scot-free (sort of). This show helps answer the question, “What do you do with all that cash?”. Where can you hide, who can you trust and does money really buy you happiness?

3. The Staircase

If someone is awkward and unlikeable, does that make them a murderer?

The Staircase follows the trial of Michael Peterson, who may or may not have fatally pushed his wife down the stairs. Just when you think the truth is about to reveal itself and you’ve cracked the case, another layer of mystery is revealed.

2. Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami

There are some crims who just seem to keep getting away with it, such as Willy & Sal. The most prolific drug traffickers in US history, they sometimes handled more than 75 tonnes of cocaine – leading to the world’s largest drug case. It’s fascinating to watch how they elude their rivals and the police, especially when they’re hiding in plain sight.

1. American Murder: The Family Next Door

Possibly one of the most confronting documentaries you’ll ever watch. No narration, no re-enactments, just home videos, security camera footage, Facebook posts and text messages. When a husband comes home to find his pregnant wife Shanann Watts and her two children missing, it starts a series of events that makes you realise how evil some people can be and just how much of our lives are being documented.
