Reverie True Crime
Paige Elmore
Reverie means to daydream but sometimes when we drift off into our daydreams, they can morph into horrific nightmares. We may start to get lost in thoughts about the dark things occurring in the world and questioning these happenings in life. Who? How? When? Why? What?From telling the stories of crimes to sitting down with victims and their families, Paige is passionate about all aspects. Shedding light on the dark, terrifying things that have happened and still happen in the world is very important to her.Paige hopes that through these stories she can bring awareness to injustices and the scary reveries around us that hide in plain sight.You can e-mail suggestions and even your personal paranormal/strange and/or crime related stories to
