Descrizione prodotto


On July 2, 1970, tourists in Australia spotted a smashed car, teetering precariously on a cliff edge, overlooking the raging ocean below. It seemed the car would fall into the water at any moment, but the car lingered … as did a mystery, revealed when police traced the license plate to the Crawford household. Here, the police discovered the shocking truth: a mother and her three children had been murdered, with the husband and father—now missing—the main suspect.

The quadruple homicide sent a wave of panic through Australia. Where was the husband? And what would make a father kill his own children? There was much speculation but few answers, as the Crawford patriarch remained missing. Forty years passed—forty years of “Australia’s Most Wanted,” police dead ends, and silence … until an unidentified body appears in a Texas morgue.
Almost Perfect is the firsthand look at a terrible crime from the perspective of Greg Fogarty—a neighbor to the Crawford family and later a member of the Victoria Police Force, Australia. Using his skills of observation and investigation, Fogarty has put together a tragic and detailed crime narrative with a shocking conclusion. Could a morgue in San Angelo, Texas, hold the body of Australia’s most sought-after murderer … or will the Crawford homicide remain unsolved forever?

5.0 su 5 stelle Where Is Elmer Crawford? 18 settembre 2011
Di Kim Bryan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The house at 136 Cardinal Road in Melbourne, Victoria, always held a fascination for Greg Fogarty. His family's home was just a very short distance from the home that would become the site of one of Australia's most infamous unsolved murders.

In July 1970, Theresa McManus Crawford was expecting her fourth child on the night her husband Elmer Kyle Crawford brutally murdered her and their three children: Katherine, James, and Karen.

His plan was to kill them and leave their bodies in a remote area where they would never be found. And always the wise one, Elmer's plan included an escape route should his plan go awry: make it look like murder/suicide.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans.

Nothing went as Elmer intended and he became a wanted man; remaining a fugitive even today.

Four decades have passed since the Crawford murders fascinated a young Australian boy. Now he's a grown man who authored a book about the case he never forgot. Originally published in 1997, Almost Perfect: The True Story of the Crawford Family Murders breathes new life into a cold case, garnered world-wide attention, and was nominated for Australia's coveted Ned Kelly award. Plus, the 2011 version offers interesting updates.

I love cold cases and I'm always excited about non-U.S. true crime, so I think it goes without saying that I loved Almost Perfect. It's written in what I would sometimes refer to as a "sterilized style," meaning it doesn't bog readers down with a slew of what-is, maybes, or I-talked-to-him-once interviews. Readers get just the facts with a hypothesis (which is pretty dead on, in my opinion) as icing on the cake.

Any book that I read in one day deserves a spot on my recommend list. And that's exactly where you'll find Almost Perfect by Greg Fogarty.

As an Australian I am always intrigued by unsolved murders on this continent. I knew a little about this unsolved murder of a wife and her three children before I spotted this book for sale on Amazon books. I decided to purchase it and I'm glad I did! Greg Fogarty has written a great, easy to read account of these terrible murders, writing from personal knowledge of the house where it occurred in Melbourne. The murderer used an ingenious method of murder and an unusual way of trying to hide the evidence of what he had done. Unfortunately for him things didn't quite work out as he had hoped. Other than that, he had a lot of luck. I highly recommend 'Almost Perfect' in spite of the frustrating ending', even if you know nothing of Australia.
5.0 su 5 stelle Seemingly superior to police efforts. 7 giugno 2016
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book needed to be written, for posterity, because the finer details of this once notorious crime aren't publicly recorded elsewhere. Has there ever been another Australian case of a father murdering his family (3 children + wife) in a Machiavellian fashion and absconding for 45 years? That the crime isn't well-known today is somewhat of a travesty, and it seems ridiculous that murderer Elmer Crawford wasn't and may never be found. Although the author (once a policeman, and who'd been a child living in the same street where and time at which the crime occurred) barely criticises the police, there doesn't seem to have been any substantial attempt by them to locate Elmer by reaching out to the public over time. We don't learn what happens to Elmer's assets once he vanishes and what role these played in tracking him (his home, blocks of land, bank accounts and the like), and many details and photographs of the investigation are unfortunately withheld, not just from the reader but from the author, due to a lack of cooperation from police and family involved. There is some unwanted repetition on account of limited source material, although without which this book might seem too short. The author is skilful in not making this too gratuitous and overall it isn't laborious to read. Characterisations of the personalities (likely requiring extensive hours of research), particularly Elmer, are excellent and in my opinion the most satisfying aspect of the book, possibly apt to be extended in a future edition. This is the second edition, and it there is a third it behooves the police to cooperate and be forthcoming – it's the greatest publicity this case has had in many decades. The author has likely investigated and furthered the cause of this case more than Victoria Police and for that this is an exemplary book in a Victorian/Australian context.

This book was so so. It was written to basically let the reader know about a grave murder of an entire family minus the father had taken place. Unfortunately the father who millions went on to believe committed the crime, was never caught and has never even been found to faced the police for these deaths of all his family members. The murders were methodically thought out and carried out to the letter and it is not a book for the weak of stomach when reading about the murdering of each member. So it is a stalemate, yes the book is so so but none cannot recommend it for everyone who loves reading true crime.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, a real page turner for all true murder fans and guaranteed to keep you interested right to the end. The only frustration was the ending, but given the nature of the tale, there really was no other alternative... I highly recommend this book.
