Human nature being what it is, crimes do happen even in the most peaceful places. Whenever a violent or especially grisly crime hits the headlines, people wonder what causes other people to commit crimes. Defining the criminal mind is not an exact science; until now, there is no single comprehensive explanation for why people commit crimes.<ref name="test1">The Crime Library.

People who commit crimes come from different backgrounds, lifestyle and social status. Some of them become well-known because of media exposure, which is either because of the identity or family background of the suspect or the victim, or the nature of the crime committed. Here is a list of some of the people in the Philippines who have become suspects and/or accused and/or convicted in criminal cases, then and now.
