The Crime Couch with Rochelle Jackson

“The one that got away”

June 10, 2021

Adrian Donehue is a former Homicide detective with 31 years under his belt. He headed up the Major Crime Squad and retired as a Detective Superintendent. But one case has stayed with him. It's a 50 year old cold case that still remains open. The Homicide detective describes it as "one of the worst crimes I'd ever had to deal with".

It involves the brutal murders of a pregnant woman and her three children. A 1971 coronial inquest found husband and father Elmer Crawford to be the killer. Elmer Crawford was an unqualified electrician and today would more than 90 years old if he was alive. He has never been located and did a runner after the horrific crimes.
