Alice Crimmins is an American woman who was charged with killing her two children, who were discovered missing on July 14, 1965.[1][2][3] The Crimmins trial was compared by some in the media to the Casey Anthony trial.[4][5]

She was paroled in 1977.[6]

The case was the subject of The Alice Crimmins Case by Kenneth Gross, and Ordeal By Trial by George Carpozi, Jr.. The Investigation by Dorothy Uhnak, and Where Are The Children? by Mary Higgins Clark are thinly veiled fictionalizations of the case. Where Are the Children? was made into a film of the same title that was released in 1986.

A made-for-TV movie called A Question of Guilt based on the Crimmins affair aired in 1978.

John Guare penned a Crimmins inspired play Landscape of the Body that opened in 1977.

Neal Bell's play Two Small Bodies opened in 1977. Two Small Bodies was made into a film by Beth B in 1993.[7][8]

The case is the subject of an episode of the 2013 Investigation Discovery miniseries A Crime to Remember.[9]
