Description

Long before Casey Anthony, there was another mother America loved to hate... Alice Crimmins. When her children went missing from their room one summer night, the police and the press were quick to point the finger at the "sex-crazed" mother. At the start of the women's lib movement, Alice stood for everything that threatened the status quo of how a wife and mother should behave. But over 50 years later we can re-examine the case and her multiple trials to see if there really was a case against Alice or if she was the victim of a witch hunt.

I did wan to comment on the lock on the door. Growing up my sister and I both had locks on our bed room doors that locked from the outside. But they was a reason for this. First are parents never used the locks to lock us in are room every. We never really even closed the doors as it affected the AC. But I do remember why and when my dad decide to put the locks on our door. When we were younger our house flooded while we where away on vacation due to a unfortunate toilet break. But during this time we had many people going in and out of our house repairing everything. It just so happen that my sister and my room where the only upstairs room. that didn't flood so everyone's stuff was move into our rooms. So my dad put locks on the door so the people working didn't even have a chance to go in our room and mess with our stuff, or us if we were there. That was the only time we ever used the locks but they are still on our doors to this day. So the lock might not be that weird.

Hey, when you're a night owl, you run on different time. My family, friends and myself typically go to sleep around 4/5 am. Nothing weird about that, some people's circadian rythms are different. She sounds like a woman ahead of her time. The 'justice' system at the time was such a joke.

Britt made some really solid points/contributions to this one! I hope she keeps building that confidence to participate, and not just barely speak. She really adds to it!

also I think a great cover for you would be about larry Murphy he's "supposedly" killed loads of people but no-one knows... As he was caught with 1 girl in a fairly bad situation I think if you look up the vanishing triangle ireland that's where he was based
