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.

“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.”
Billy Jensen, Chase Darkness with Me: How One True-Crime Writer Started Solving Murders

“If you get killed in America, there is a 38 percent chance your killer won’t be caught.”
Billy Jensen, Chase Darkness with Me: How One True-Crime Writer Started Solving Murders

“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.”
