Ever watch something and it leaves you with an odd, disturbed feeling? 

It’s happened to me on more than one occasion. For me, it’s usually a work of fiction presented as real life like Paranormal Activity. I would wake up in the middle of the night thinking about that movie for about a week after I watched it.

Oddly enough, I don’t recall that ever happening to me after watching a true crime documentary. You would think horrific events that really happened would cause more anxiety for me than fictional ones, but for whatever reason, that’s not the case. 

However, it appears that I am in the minority when it comes to true crime anxiety among Texans. 

With true crime documentaries being all the rage on streaming services these days as well as the rise in popularity of true crime podcasts, Secure Data Recovery conducted a study to determine which states experienced the most true crime anxiety. 

When all was said and done, Texas was found to be the state with the third-most true crime anxiety, behind Louisiana and Mississippi, respectively. In fact, people in the southern part of the United States tend to experience more anxiety from consuming true crime content than much of the rest of the country. 

Another key takeaway from the study is that almost half of Americans have experienced anxiety from true crime content. Interestingly, the study also found that true crime content caused 61% of Americans to become more suspicious of others.
