Crimes In Progress Launch

Most crime goes unnoticed... these are crimes in progress.

Welcome to Crimes In Progress on Substack! This is the new home for compelling true crime with an agenda.

My name is Andrew Egan and I'm a writer at, having previously been a reporter at Forbes Magazine and ABC News. My work has appeared in Vice, the AV Club, and many others.

Subscribe today and we'll dive deep into the muddy world of crime. True crime as a genre gives us the chance to examine the gruesome and sensational with an eye to understanding. If we ask more substantial questions, maybe we can even change things. Crime will always exist. We don’t always have to react the same way.

So join me! We’ll get a look at our criminal justice process and how it shapes an outcome before a crime is even committed.

These are crimes in progress.
