谋杀。 The word alone is enough to send cold shivers down your spine. Just the thought that some people out there kill for pleasure could be enough to make you never want to step outside again. No one wants to fall victim to a psycho’s fantasies. No one wants to be shot, stabbed, strangled, poisoned or pushed off a bridge. Terrifyingly, however, people are killed like this around the world every single day. They are shot in a fit of rage, stabbed out of jealousy, strangled in a moment of insanity or pushed off a bridge when no one is looking. The aftermath of terrible incidents like this leaves family and friends devasted and harried detectives working around the clock to find the killer. Some murder cases are solved within days, some within decades.
