Have a correction to submit? Click here



I cover a lot of cases and historical events on my blog and YouTube channel. I always strive for accuracy, but I am human so sometimes I get things wrong. If you believe I made an error, you can e-mail me at maryhallberg@icloud.com or use the contact form at the top of this page.


A few things to note before you submit. (These are all common sense, but they need to be said for clarification.)


  1. Be polite. If you call me stupid or accuse me of lying or doing poor research, I can't take you seriously.

  2. Remind me of the case. Like I said, I cover a lot of cases, and sometimes their blog entries/videos are months or even years old. You may have to refresh my memory on the details of the case. If I have no idea what you're talking about, I'm not inclined to go hunting down the information, so your submission will likely be deleted with no further action.

  3. Cite your sources. How do you know I'm wrong if you don't have evidence? Please let me know where you got your information from.

  4. Please do not e-mail me with corrections for pronunciations or some other nitpicky detail or oversight. This could include typos or instances where I obviously misspoke and it's clear what I meant. These things are irrelevant, and there are often multiple different pronunciations for certain words. Also, please don't correct me when I misspoke in the video but corrected myself on screen.

  5. Just because you submit a correction does not mean I will actually issue a correction. This could be for a variety of reasons, namely because I'm skeptical of the sources you cited. This is nothing personal -- I'm just very selective about the sources I trust.

  6. If the case is a controversial one, please do not e-mail me about why my opinion is wrong. When I cover controversial cases, I'm very careful to leave my personal opinion on the case out of the script. In most cases, I don't even have an opinion or I wouldn't be covering it in the first place. Yet I get tons of comments from people who assume I have one particular view and scold me for (presumably) disagreeing with them. Please don't try to convince me of an opinion that I might already hold. That's just nonsensical.


I care about the truth. It's one of my top priorities, both in my true crime coverage and everyday life. I want to give people with good intentions a chance to correct me when I'm wrong -- even if it hurts my own ego. But my research takes a lot of time and effort, and I can't take corrections seriously if they don't put at least some effort into it as well.
