An American true crime investigative journalist and producer, focusing on unsolved crimes, citizen detectives, and crowdsolving, I’ve written crime stories for Rolling Stone, Los Angeles Magazine, Boston Magazine, and the New York Times. Referred to as an expert on amateur digital detectives by both MSNBC and Al Jazeera America, I presented the panel “Solving Murders With Social Media” at the SXSW Interactive and the National Cybercrime Conference. During the day you can find me working as a supervising producer and special investigator at the Warner Bros. program Crime Watch Daily, where I run all digital operations for the program. At night, you can find me working on my next case, representing justice so far as my feeble powers go.

Quotes by Billy Jensen  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The biggest problem with true crime has always been its imbalance of villains to heroes. True crime is full of supervillains: Manson, Bundy, Gacy. But the superheroes are rarely acknowledged.”
Billy Jensen, Chase Darkness with Me: How One True-Crime Writer Started Solving Murders

“Whenever people ask me why I only write about unsolved murders, I always say the same thing: because I hate the guy who got away with it. But after Michelle died, it was different. Now I hate the perpetrator for taking over the lives of the living just as much as taking the lives of the dead. The victim’s families. The investigators. The volunteers. they all gave up giant chunks of their own lives to search for an answer that someone selfishly kept hidden away.

People die before getting the answer.”
Billy Jensen, Chase Darkness with Me: How One True-Crime Writer Started Solving Murders

“Things only became real when I would tell him,” he said. “And much of the work I was doing was for him, to make him proud, to make him happy. My dad was kind of like the cashier window at the casino. Things that would happen were just chips, but when I told my dad, it would turn into money. And that went away.”
