New Jersey Is The World


Interview: Joe Pompeo, author of Blood & Ink

New Jersey and true crime... they seem very much linked. I mean, between The Watcher and The Good Nurse it seems like Netflix is making all its money this month solely by focusing on true crime in the Garden State.

But did you know there was a murder that went down a hundred years ago that many say was the birth of the modern true crime obsession? It's the Hall-Mills case, a Somerset County murder involving some New Brunswick high society elites, a sensationalized trial, and of course the mysterious PIG WOMAN.

Joe Pompeo has just released the book BLOOD & INK all about the case and its historical significance, and it was an honor to talk with him about this case, its impact, and of course, Grease Trucks.
