Born from listening to a cool story on a podcast and looking it up and realizing it happened 20 years ago to the day, Today Before Today tells stories on the same day they happened years later. Initially, I focused on the site on any interesting story that happened on this day in history, but have started to move into just 1 niche: True Crime. Every now and then, there will still be non-True Crime stories if another historical event makes more sense, but for the most part, I hope you're interested in mysterious disappearances and murder... Because that's what we've got.

An advertiser by day and a hopeful writer by night, I hope to use this site both to tell stories and entertain, but also as an outlet for creativity and my love for writing. I am a graduate of Bowling Green State University, I am married to my college sweetheart with 7 pet fish, and I'm fascinated with all things true crime. I hope you enjoy reading this site as much as I've enjoyed creating it.
