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. He was convicted in December 2009. A 12th woman was attacked and left for dead on Thanksgiving 1997, but survived.

Hubert Geralds, Jr., 34, was convicted in 1997 of murdering six women in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood. The first victim was Rhonda King. Under interrogation by police, he confessed to all six murders. In 1998 he was sentenced to death. In 2000 prosecutors moved to vacate the conviction for the King murder, because DNA linked her death to Andre Crawford. Geralds remained on death row for the other five murders, however.
