INFAMOUS: Alice Crimmins

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 liberation movement, Alice stood for everything that threatened the status quo of how a wife and mother should behave. Now 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.
