I am looking for recommendations for documentaries about true crime cases.

I am especially interested in documentaries (can be TV programs) that delve into the psychological aspects of the crimes. An element of mystery is good too- I enjoy watching the Dateline and 48 Hour Mystery shows, as well as stuff on the ID channel (although that is a bit cheesy) so if you have recommendations for good episodes for those I am interested.
I have watched almost everything about Aileen Wuornos, the Cleveland Kidnappings, and the Fritzl case. I've seen some of Warner Herzog's documentaries- the one about the death penalty case.
I am also interested in really good true crime books- well-written, researched and in-depth.
I am most interested in non-fiction, but will consider fiction if you think it's really great.
