I knew this sounded familiar..
When you get away with something, there is an adrenaline rush that can lead you to do even more dumb things – like publicly writing about your crime and publishing it for the whole world to read. In 2003, Polish author Krystian Bala wrote Amok, which featured a rather detailed murder that, to authorities, was a little too familiar. The described murder, which has a young woman bound with a cord that then formed a noose around her neck, was eerily similar to the death of a Polish businessman whose body was found in a nearby river. Authorities determined that Bala wasn’t writing from imagination, but rather from memory as he had played a role in the murder Dariusz Janiszewski. After suspicious arose, police looked into Bala’s connection with Janiszewski and found that the businessman had been seeing Bala’s ex-wife at the time of his murder.
