I’ve compiled my top favourite true crime YouTubers that I have enjoyed this past year! Only 8 made the cut as many others are only focused on one case and I think bringing light to as many cases as possible is important! I am subscribed to nearly 100 different channels from family vloggers, to cleaning, makeup and yes, of course, more crime! I may decide to list some of those other channels another day!
Eleanor Neale has an amazing UK accent and most of her videos are true crime narrations. Her accent combined with the stories she tells, and the respect she gives, have made her one of my favourites in 2018!
Gabulosis has a series on vintage crimes, especially hollywood starlet types called “Vintage and Vanished”. She always has a new hair color and vlogged for the first time during her Halloween video’s this year! She talks about many unknown to me cases and I love it! Like many others, she also puts in an off-topic video or a different style video once in awhile to lighten the mood and show another side of herself! She does an amazing job and I have no clue why she wasn’t recommended to me sooner!
Amber Loves Mystery TRUE CRIME
Amber has fairly long videos and really puts a lot of love into every case she covers! She also has posted a couple of vlogs and unboxing videos of products that people who are interested in creepy things would enjoy! She has talked about having some struggles with her health and still manages to upload regularly! She caught my eye with her beautiful backgrounds and soothing voice! I love the variety on her channel!
Cayleigh does an amazing job with her series of covered John and Jane Does called “Nameless”, her series “Dark Matters” and tons of other dark topics, including fringe episodes and Subsriber Storytime! If I had one complaint, it would be that she has a lot of Patreon only things, and I can’t afford to join in, but I absolutely respect her for fnding a way to keep the channel up and running and sharing these important messages!
Georgia is another young woman with an amazing accent! She covers a lot of cases from the UK and this makes her videos seem quite new to me as they are often cases that i am not familiar with. However, she also has done the classics, including Jack the Ripper. She uploads every Wednesday for a “Midweek Mystery” and throws in a beauty product or vlog here and there to help lighten the mood and allow her viewers to see other aspects of her life!
John Lordan has been someone I’ve been following for several years! He is the ONLY YouTuber I have ever bought merch from! He has several different series on his channel, Brain Scratch -which was birthed by the Elisa Lam case, Case Cracked, where he gives us a story where the case is solved. Searchlight, which highlights missing people; and once in awhile he will toss in a more fringe episode to lighten the mood and peak your interest by something not so dark! He used to do a weekly documentary or movie review as well, but has changed his schedule up and this is no longer in his regular weekly rotation, but he does feature a documentary or movie here and there! John, is one of the only YouTubers I have ever found who has the families of the victims reach out to him and be willing to discuss the cases, adding in an even more personal touch and call to action!
Shauna Rae is another true crime YouTuber who enjoys pulling up lesser-known cases. Her channel is building really nicely and I am excited for her! I don’t know if I have ever even left a comment (I will have to!!) but her information is clearly well researched and she isn’t afraid to look at her notes to make sure she is getting it right! Recently her uploads did slow down as she explained some health issues in a recent video, but I am excited that she is back! Shauna Rae also tosses in some skincare products and q&a’s to lighten the mood, but it is tastefully done and doesn’t take away from the messages of the victims she is representing!
These are literally in no order other than the way they appeared in my subscription list! I hope you check them out and find someone new to enjoy! If you have are in love with somone, or have your own channel, leave me a comment and I will check them out!
I realize there are now only 7 listed. One was removed due to spreading rumours about other YouTubers and tearing people down. I am not about that game and won’t be supporting someone who is! I hope you enjoy my top 7!!
