Annie Crawford, Ugly and a Morphine
Fiend, Is Charged With Most Sen
sational Series of Crimes In
History of the South.
New Orleans, Sept. 23. That Annie
Crawford, ugly and a man hater, poi
soned four members of her family to
gratify her inordinate love of dress Is
the police theory of the most sensa
tional murder case in the history of
Now Orleans. That this love of dress
was exaggerated through the fact she
is a morphine fiend is another side
light. According to a statement by
tho district attorney after the girl
practically has been grilled for twenty-four
hours, she has not confessed
to her alleged crime or crimes, and
there is no likelihood of her doing so.
The woman she is twenty-seven
years old is under arrest charged
only with polsouing Elsie Crawford,
the stenographer, who died mysteri
ously a few days ngo. It seems al
most certain, however, that she soon
will be served with affidavits in simt
lar cases In which her father, her
mother nnd her sister will bo named
as the victims.
The result of the district attorney's
examination f the Crawford womau
and various relatives of the family is
being kept as secret as possible, but
the case appears to be growing more
serious all the time.
Annie Crawford through long serv
ice in the drug department of tho New
Orleans sanitarium, from which she
was discharged for alleged irregulari
ties in her accounts, was familiar with
the action of poisons and seemed to
have worked with the careful patience
of a scientist conducting an experi
ment. Her alleged methods some
times were crude, but she seldom bun
ded. Since her discharge from the hospi
tal two years ago she has not worked,
but has paid board to the undo and
mint with whom she lived. At first
die claimed she had saved up some
money, but later she said she could
not have kept up but for the insur
ance money she received by the deaths
of members of her family. In addi
tion to being addicted to morphine,
die was eccentric otherwise. She sel
dom ate at the table, usually taking
her meals in the kitchen. When
young, men called upon her sisters she
ran off and hid. Yet her clothes were
handsome and expensive.
Each of tho four whose deaths prob
ably were caused by the woman now
in prison carried insurance. Recently
Annie Crawford took out insurance
upon the remaining members of the
Tho circumstances surrounding the
death of Elsie Crawford, who was the
prisoners junior by several years,
were mysterious at the time. Elsie
had been treated for heart trouble by
a Dr. Magulre, who, however, upon
the young lady's death on Saturday
refused to give a certificate of death,
saying that the symptoms were not
those of heart trouble. Dr. Maguiro
Is said to havo declared at the time
that if he had boon prevailed upon to
give n certificate of death he would
have diagnosed it as morphine poison
