Crime Memorabilia

Okay, so people have some pretty bizarre hobbies - to each his own. I often read true crime because as they say, 'truth is stranger than fiction'. Recently, I read about a unusual and literally morbid hobby some people have collecting crime memorabilia.

While I can grasp the concept of narrowing your collecting to something specific, like paper items, ie; envelopes, letters, journals, drawing. How do you go about finding this rare stuff to make collecting it worth while? Yardsales? Craig's List? Auctions? Ebay doesn't allow that kind of merchandise. However, there are online auctions to fill that void.

What I wonder most about all this, is how genuine are the objects and how did these sellers get their hands on them? You never know who you're really dealing with online.
