Executive editor Kathy Lipari said the new site will make for fascinating reading.

"These stories are always intriguing, mysterious, senseless, chilling and at times, unfortunately, unforgettable," she said.

"Our expert crime writers will dive into the unsolved cases that have baffled investigators and left communities searching for answers for years, and by going back into the archives, read about the cases that shaped our communities from decades past."

Ms Lipari says News Corp's investigative journalists work tirelessly, often alone and even in danger because something compels them to uncover the truth.

Award-winning journalists like Mark Morri, Janet Fyfe-Yeomans and Yoni Bashan in NSW, Andrew Rule, Keith Moor and Mark Buttler from Victoria, Nigel Hunt and Sean Fewster in Adelaide and Queensland's Thomas Chamberlin, Greg Stolz and Kate Kyriacou are recognised for their crime writing.

"This relentless commitment to devoting countless hours to interviewing, questioning, researching and crafting the story behind the crime proudly showcases the role of the masthead and investigative journalism in keeping our communities informed and our people safe," said Ms Lipari.

"True Crime Australia will take readers behind the police tape to get the facts and search for answers. "
