On June 25, 1910, Mary Agnes Crawford died
suddenly -- the cause of death was attributed to Acute Meningitis. Three weeks later on July 15 her father, Walter C.
Crawford passed away -- the cause of death was allegedly Uremic
Poisening. Two weeks after that, on July 29 her mother died -- it was thought that she also succumbed to Uremic Poisoning.
In mid-September of 1911 another sister, Elise, died, which raised suspitions that the family might have been victims
Dr. J.C. McGuire who had treated Elise claimed that her symptoms were not connected with the heart trouble
she had suffered but that they more closely resembled morphine poisoning. Dr, McGuire admitted Elise to Charity Hospital
where she died the following morning. The coronor's report conclulded that morphine had been found in her stomach.
Relatives reported that Elise's sister, Annie Crawford has an addiction to morhpine. She had worked in the
drug department of the New Orleans Sanitarium but was dicharged for alleged irregularities in her accounting medications.
In her position at the hospital she became familiar with the actions of poisons and other drugs.
Out of work
since losing her job, relatives noted that Annie never wanted to fine clothing. It was determined that she was the
insurance beneficiary of each deceased family member; Mary Agnes was insured for $300, her father for $800, her
mother for $800, and her sister Elise for $250. Annie Crawford was arrested on September 27, 1911 and charged with the
murders by poisoning of her mother, father, and two sisters during the prior 15 months. Another sister, Gertrude,
said "I don't want Annie to nurse me if I ever get sick. She gices such funny medicine".
Attorney ???? Adams said, "It was established today the that Annie Crawford is a drug fiend and probably is addicted
to morphine. It is also established that she had access during the past three weeks to morphine and was in a positions
to obtain it in practically any quantity. During the indisposition of Elise Crawford she bitterly complained that her
food and drink were drugged. I have charged Annie Crawford with the murder of her sister Elise". The New
York Times reported that Annie had admitted poisening Elise but said that she accidentally administered the wrong medication
-- she thought she had given Elise calomel tablets.
The presiding Judge at the trial for the murder of Elise
announced a mistrial through failure of the jury to reach a verdict. Anne Crawford was not tried for the murder
of her mother, father, or sister because they had been buried -- forensics at that time could not verify suspitions of
murder on buried corpses.
