Question for the score writers

My nearest neighbors (common wall) have taken to listening to “true crime”/forensic detection shows at this time of night. I heard about someone named Bunchi (?) who was murdered by her husband in Missouri (?).

My question for persons who score these productions: how does one come up with incidental music/sounds that, without words or identifiable sounds, immediately identify the show as a crime documentary?
