Old Timey Crimey #5: Dr. Crippen

April 19, 2019

This week we jaunt off to England for the mysterious case of Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen and his lovely wife Cora, whose disappearance introduces us to a lovely strongwoman with a fantabulous name, a transatlantic chase, and a torrid affair that resulted in some seriously questionable costume choices. 

Also! Leave us a 5-star review on iTunes with a limerick about the Dr. Crippen case, anything to beat the "Naughty boy, ship's ahoy!" song. Scott and Kristy will choose their top 3 favorites and put it to a public vote on our Facebook group. PG-13 only please!

Submit your review + limerick by May 16, 2019. Vote will be held from midnight May 17 to noon May 20, 2019, and the top vote getter wins an Old Timey Crimey t-shirt featuring our logo and your limerick! Continental U.S. only.
