This convergence is not so surprising, given that both t-c and romance are formula genres that deal with the strongest of emotions. Many true-crime texts are themselves perverse love stories, as you've noted, or "dystopian romance" in the words of critic Laura Browder. I call them the "romance-gone-wrong" narratives, for they always end with somebody's death instead of marriage.
