Miriam’s Recent Updates

“Finally, he could stand it no longer: “How could you think I could kill my own brother?” he demanded, his voice choking on tears. “He sent us the money to come to America. He supported us after our father died in Sicily. Joe was like a father to me since I was eleven years old. I know a man isn’t supposed to cry but . . .” and slumped over, his face in his hands, sobbing.”
Miriam C. Davis, Axeman of New Orleans: The True Story

“An exemplary son of Sicilian immigrants, he worked hard and made big plans. At seventeen he was already an insurance agent and engaged to Josie, a sweet local girl; he anticipated a flourishing American life, a happy family, a prosperous business. But three nights after Mardi Gras, Josie had a dream. She dreamed that evil was about to descend on the neighborhood. She was prescient. Frank’s life was about to become a nightmare.”
Miriam C. Davis, Axeman of New Orleans: The True Story

“Many aspects of the Crutti, Rissetto, Davi, and Sciambra (and later the Andollina and Maggio) attacks were similar: targeting a successful grocery and bar in an unfashionable, isolated part of the city (the Sciambra grocery was less than a mile from the Crutti place) and breaking in during the dead of night. Robbery was never the motive. The assailant usually targeted the man first, if he attacked the woman at all. Harriet Crutti, Mary Davi, and Anna Andollina escaped relatively unscathed. Only Joseph and Conchetta Rissetto were attacked with equal ferocity. And perhaps Catherine Maggio wouldn’t have died if she hadn’t attempted to defend her husband.”
