Equally thrilling and devastating tales for true crime fans

"Loved" feels like the wrong word to use when describing a film about multiple murders of Indigenous people in the early 1900s. But after receiving 10 Oscar nominations—including the first-ever Native American nominee, Lily Gladstone, and the most nominated living movie director, Martin Scorsese—"Killers of the Flower Moon" is certainly getting its due.

The film, directed by Scorsese and starring Gladstone, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Brendan Fraser, is based on the 2017 true crime non-fiction book "Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI" by David Grann. It details the horrific murders of members of the Osage Nation, a Native American tribe that became incredibly wealthy after oil was discovered on their land in Oklahoma. As white settlers and corrupt officials descended upon the area, dozens of Osage people were killed for their wealth, making it one of the most sinister and forgotten crimes in American history.

But Gladstone told Deadline that the Osage people haven't forgotten.

"Even though it's opening old wounds and bringing up traumas, that's a big step in the process of healing," the actress said. "And I think ultimately, art helps us do that, helps us process these horrendous histories in a way that is more living, is more animate and is more lasting."

After the release of "Killers of the Flower Moon," many people were left wanting more true crime stories that shed light on forgotten and marginalized communities. Luckily (and also, not so luckily), there are plenty of books out there that explore similar cases and bring attention to those who have been historically silenced.

If you want to continue learning about the impact of these crimes and the resilience of those affected, here are 10 titles to check out next.
