'Thin Blue Line' is so great, a pioneer in the genre, and a sentimental favorite, although there are so many others I'd like to vote for, such as Paradie Lost #1 or #3, What a good list of good films. What a great poll.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Caylee_Anthony
Caylee Marie Anthony (August 9, 2005 – 2008)
was an American girl who lived in Orlando, Florida, with her mother,
Casey Marie Anthony (born March 19, 1986),

On December 11, 2008, two-year-old Caylee's skeletal remains
were found with a blanket inside a trash bag
in a wooded area near the Anthony family's house

The medical examiner mentioned duct tape as one reason she ruled the death a homicide,
but officially listed it as "death by undetermined means".

The trial lasted six weeks, from May to July 2011.
The prosecution sought the death penalty
.

The options are ranked by number of votes on IMDb. Option #35 still has nearly 7,000 votes. Strangely enough, none of the documentaries on the Casey Anthony case has enough votes to make it to the top 35.

Indeed, options #36 to #70 still contain an impressive number of great true crime docus. I'll think about making a part two of this poll.

A few of these don't seem particularly crime-y to me... Exit Through the Gift Shop? The Defiant Ones?

Also, you have the wrong Deliver Us from Evil. This is the one you want - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0814075

Hi Jen, they're all categorized as crime documentaries by IMDb. So I followed this. But you're right about Deliver Us from Evil. I'll do a re-push.
