Andre Crawford (born March 20, 1962) is a serial killer, who killed 11 women between 1993 and 1999. Many of the women were prostitutes or drug addicts. He also had sex with their corpses.
Crawford had been placed in foster care as an infant after authorities found him living alone in squalor and after his mother admitted leaving him unattended for long periods of time. As a child he had lived with a foster family. As an adult, he became a transient, living in vacant buildings in Chicago.
He was accused of the murder of Evandry Harris, Patricia Dunn, Rhonda King, Angel Shatteen, Shaquanta Langley, Sonja Brandon, Nicole Townsend, Cheryl Cross, Tommie Dennis, Sheryl Johnson and Constance Bailey. He was linked by DNA to seven of the victims, and confessed to all 11 murders.
Crawford was convicted for his murders in December 2009 and is currently serving life in prison.
