Alice Crimmins is an American woman who was charged with killing her two children, 5 year old Eddie and 4 year old Alice Marie, known as Missy, who went missing on July 14, 1965.[1][2][3] Alice Marie's body was found that day, and Eddie Jr.'s was found five days later.

No evidence could be found tying anyone to the deaths. Crimmins was followed and covertly recorded by the New York Police Department for two years, before finally being charged and going to trial in 1968.[1] She was found guilty and sent to prison, later released on appeal, recharged and found guilty again in 1971, overturned in 1973, reinstated and reincarcerated in 1975.[1] She was paroled in 1977.[4]

The Crimmins trial has been compared by some in the media to the Casey Anthony trial.[5][6]
