Surprise! Simpsonville Murderer Michael Crane Had History of Thuggery

Last week I got a tip from someone who knew murder victim Allison Cross personally and had dealings with her boyfriend/murderer Michael Crane. Here’s the story in his own words:

…Iknew Allison Cross and Ms Lancer who were killed in the double homicide in simpsonville at the beginning of the month. Me and my ex wife were friends of allison and after my ex wife left me I was involved a year later in a short term relationship with allison and we decided to just be friends. Long story short, last summer when she got involved with the man who killed her and her mom he found out that me and allison were friends and she told him about us being intimate. In turn he spent off and on threatening to kill me and my family down here in florida. Wasn’t a constant daily thing but would get harassing calls which I never took serious until I seen what happened today. Have quite a few witnesses to his actions, had to even change my cell number. Not sure if this is important to the case but I don’t mind even testifying to this come court day cause I feel this man is a very sick person who is bound to hurt more people if he isn’t stopped.

Apparently Crane went as far as to harass the old lady of the tipster … because he was mad his girlfriend had an ex? Unsurprisingly this strained the friendship between the tipster and Cross and she chose to side with Crane! Crane killed her months later.

The lesson here is this. Ladies, scumbags are scumbags. If a person threatened to kill the family of your ex just because he was your ex you can be damn sure he’ll think about killing you at some point. Cross and her mother paid the ultimate price for trusting this degenerate, don’t make the same mistake they did.

The tipster is willing to testify at Crane’s trail if needed.

    Allison Cross was a severe meth addict and her granmother was removed recently from that house because Alison and her monther neglected,starved and abused her charges were pending I beleive,and did we all forget Alison’s other ex overdosing and dying with Alison the only witness….alot of people were dying and being abused way before Mike came along……there’s alot more to this story …I really wish more reporters would look into these two womens lives…………

  2. Rob Taylor on August 28th, 2011 10:48 pm

    What are you a devil worshiper? The two women are dead, murdered by the degenerate they let in their lives. Meth addicts or know they are the victims here – and Crane deserves to burn in Hell for what he’s done.

    And likely he’s an addict too, right?

  3. Loup on August 29th, 2011 2:24 pm

    glad the guy in Fla. got out when he did.

  4. Tell it like it is on August 30th, 2011 12:57 am

    I dont know who wrote that first comment but you have no clue what your talking about. So maybe you should get your facts staight before you go commenting on somthing that obviously dont know nuttin about. Allison was not addicted to meth yeah she may have did meth but so did mike!! Since were just gonna call ppl out how about mike shooting meth up and making Allison do it too yeah I know all about that!! And as far as the grandmother I dont know where your info came from but Allison grandmother has been dead for over a year or two so it couldnt been recent that the things you said happen if they even did. And yes Allison ex did die of a overdose on morphine patches so obviously he wanted to die cause he is the one that put two more patches on his back not Allison she just woke up and found him dead that morning and she was not tha only witness his mom was there also she is the one who called 911. So all your info you had about Allison was a lie!! But regardless of what she done she did not deseve to die and neither did her mother. He is crazy and he deserves the death penalty if you ask me !!

  6. Michael Johnson on September 16th, 2011 7:09 am

    In this Great Country of Our’s ; It is written in the Constitution that ; WE ate Innocent until PROVEN Guilty… That what is on My mind and because of the Media and the people that alredy have Michael C. on the rail to be executed!

  7. Michael Johnson on September 16th, 2011 7:11 am

    That’s ARE. Up in the comment above!

  8. Michael Johnson on September 16th, 2011 7:16 am

    Mr Taylor ; meth addict’s are insane when they are on that particular drug;( it is a home-made speed)

  9. Rob Taylor on September 16th, 2011 4:19 pm

    He had a history of violence, and basically admitted to the murder. He should be on a fast track to the needle. And lots of people on meth don’t kill people so it’s not an excuse for murder. It might be a reason, but not an excuse.

  10. Sick & Tired on October 2nd, 2011 2:55 pm

    We’ll let’s all be glad Mr Taylors not in charge or Mike would already have a needle in his arm.You’re poor excuse for what you call media sugar coated that whole story. I’m so glad I don’t live in Greenville never have I seen such ignorance and lack of knowledge and since you Mr. Taylor are part of the media in Greenville I now see how greatly you exagerate.The witness here who is stating Mr Crane threatened him is a drug addict himself.If ever there was a group of people who belong on the Jerry Springer show your minut little town would be it.Hopefully the DNA techs are state not local you people don’t know your asses from a hole in the ground.May god have mercy on your soul Mr taylor look into a story or a so called lead your key witness here is probably overdosed himself by now…want a real story take a look into that house the rotted walls rats where these victims earned there money who came and went from there this was’nt June Cleavers the report Mr Taylor better yet go take a look peek in a window get a real sense of whats going on.He has not admitted to anything get your facts straight how can you even call yourself a reporter.

  11. Rob Taylor on October 2nd, 2011 4:11 pm

    I’ll bet you $500 that he’s proven guilty.

  12. Sick & Tired on October 3rd, 2011 8:15 am

    I’ll take that bet and gladly take your money I’ll send you an email where to send your check after the trial , let the legal system do what it’s meant to do innocent till proven guilty.Media is power,the story I saw on the news and the actual facts are two diffrent entities all together.Up until this horror show started I trusted what I read & saw as fact if its on the news.What a rude awaking I’ve had!!!!!!It’s a story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.

  13. Sick & Tired on October 3rd, 2011 8:58 am

    And to the young lady I never knew there was such a thing as a casual meth head only in South Carolina huh,kinda like her kids visiting the paternal granmother,unsugar coated she had to go to angry management classes for being an abusive mother,and why don’t you use your superb media skills to look thru public record they abused grandma starved her and made her live in the filth (covered in sores)the state removed her and I’m sorry yes it was almost 2 years ago I did’nt realise abusing the elderly and small children has a expiration date to where it doesnt count anymore.So history of violence & abuse seems to be on public record for the victims.Mike has never abused a child or starved his grandmother,if Mike had a history of violence as you say he would of gone down to Florida and started something.You’re media hype is a pathetic attempt for readers,try being a real reporter be objective look at the facts….maybe then and only then you can call yourself a reporter till then your just another big mouth…who’s gonna owe me some cash …..

  14. Rob Taylor on October 3rd, 2011 1:47 pm

    So you’re saying she had it coming?

  15. Sick & Tired on October 4th, 2011 9:25 am

    Absolutely not but the lifestyle they lived in usually ends in tragedy an overdose or accidental death read the statistics, no one deserves to be murdered,what I’m saying is the lifestyle choices they made and the bridges they burned may have lead up to the events of that night ,until the trial how do you know it wasnt self defense or someone else came into the house, all I’m saying is you have a needle buried in the arm of a man who has never layed hands on another woman,men don’t wake up at 35 and abuse a woman,you yourself know there’s usually violence in the home or abuse as a child or a long term pattern other than crank phonecalls to another Junky . Mike comes from a good home. Innocent till proven guilty is what this county is founded on. From the media information available it looks open and shut but from a friends perspsective somethings very wrong here.So if you wanna make me out to be a monster who disrespects the dead if that’s what gets you readers feel free.But that is not what I am I’m a decent human being that feels true sorrow for both women,but not at the expense of a third life taken.I’ve known Michael Crane most of my life and know unless someone was trying to take his life he would never do harm anyone let alone someone he cared feel free to sensationalize i’m not taking your bait…this mouse has been there many mazes..Have a nice day Robert and don’t forget my $500 I’ll need it to help my friend start a new life after this nightmare is over and his side of the story comes out.

  16. Rob Taylor on October 4th, 2011 1:48 pm

    Since your email address is “tinyterrormobsters” I’ll asume you don’t actually believe this piffle but are just a criminal yourself. You really are disgusting though suggesting that an old woman and some chick who YOU KNOW your friend roughed up were killed in self-defense.

    Your friend murdered two women and you love it. You are saying they both deserved it by claiming their lifestyle led to this and not your friends evil, his desire for violence and abuse. Many addicts in this country manage to not murder people, your friend couldn’t. He likes hurting people and you know that and approve of it as his friend. I hope that if he did get off he comes to live with you – and murders you the way he murdered those two women.

  17. Sick & Tired on October 5th, 2011 12:14 am

    Wow looks like you get off on violence as for Publishing my email address your a real tough guy it’s for an online game mobsters from myspace I’m that old,I get off on murder that’s vile?Your truly a sick man and in no way shape or form any kind of a journalist your more the shock jock moron type .I don’t condone murder and to say I get off on it,you need help I’m done speaking to an ill breed man who’s mama did’nt have the sense to swallow.Apparently innocent till prove guilty does’nt apply to trash like yourself .

  18. Sick & Tired on October 5th, 2011 12:23 am

    Wow looks like you get off on violence as for my email address its for gaming like video game mobsters on myspace but you seem to jump to conclusions easily I’ve never been arrested in my life.Apparently innocent till prove guilty does’nt apply to trash like yourself .And saying I condone violence in any form just shows your ignorance again nowhere did I say anyone deserved to die your an evil man.By the way he will be found not guilty and is more than welcome in my home always was,always will be.

  19. Rob Taylor on October 5th, 2011 1:04 am

    You are condoning the murders of these two women by putting the bad mouth on them. These women are dead and you’re trash talking them. Who’s the vile one?

  20. Karen from Wisconsin on December 27th, 2011 8:27 pm

    The Michael Crane I knew 8 years ago in WI was a junkie and a thief. Not yet violent, but only concerned about the next high. Didn’t care if he draggeda young girl to the hoods of Chicago for drugs, didn’t care about anything but Mike. As far as I know he started doing meth at least by 2003. That many years changes a person. The Mike I knew than was a coward, who knows who he is now. If he didn’t kill them why not call the cops, why sit in the next room watching tv like nothing happened. Did he stumble upon the bad Allison and her mother who were so into the meth scene that they deserved being bludgened to death. If he is so innocent why not call it in. Innocent I don’t think so. Some say Allison and her mother had a bad drug house and whatever, no one deserves what they recieved. If things were that bad Mike could have walked away. If he found the bodies call for help. I believe he killed them, and can only say “there but for the grace of God go I”. He wanted to marry my daughter and thank God she finally left him. He is no angel, check Cook County records or even WI. He has been in jail in both states.

  21. Karen from Wisconsin on December 27th, 2011 8:32 pm

    If Mike is innocent why was he found in the living room watching TV with the bodies wrapped up side by side in the bedroom, and didn’t call the cops or anyone for help.

  22. Sick & Tired on January 11th, 2012 3:49 pm

    Wow you’re all a bunch of idiots read the police report Mike was dying along with the rest of them he was taken out on a stretcher and and taken to the hospital>both women had severe mental problems & the mother was off her medication check the autopsy reports she had the violent histry along with the daughter Alison kids where removed because she was violent.Greenville police said alison was unstable and a meth head…As for your dislike of Mike most mothers of mikes gf hated him but find one girl you wont……..he never laid a hand on anyone…and the arrest were minor please do check ..I love people who speak without looking AT public record….

  23. Rob Taylor on January 11th, 2012 3:51 pm

    The public record shows your friend was a violent career criminal.

  24. Sick & Tired on January 11th, 2012 6:27 pm

    Really and how many of those arrests where for any violent tendencies please refer to the year and county maybe I missed something…where are these violent arrests?I love how everytime I find blatant lies here you attack him from another angle,if you can sit there Mr taylor and see his arrest record then you know he was removed by ambulance and at deaths door himself…..At what piont are you people going to see this story for what it is….lazy bad police work yes Michael has a past and was an easy scapegoat and a quick answer to a puzzle.The case is crumbling as we speak…the states evidence is on his side and contradicatory in nature…Dear mr super slueth Taylor if you know something I dont please share cause from what we see…..This is all just a sad example of bad police work and an easy answer to a bizaar event…it’s easy to jump to conclusions…fortunately for Mr Crane the evidence speaks for him …..and will tell his story.And karen keep listening to crazy rumors….watching tv with dead bodies boy stupid people are easily amused.HE WAS DYING WITH THE OTHER TWO VICTIMS….CHECK YOUR FACTS

  25. Rob Taylor on January 11th, 2012 6:44 pm

    His murder charges are still in the system. Say, I take it you’re claiming he’s the victim of them. How’s this. Post evidence that actually supports that claim and I’ll give you $1000. That goes to anyone. Send me actual evidence that Crane was an innocent victim of two murdered women and you get a cool grand.

    And a poorly written screed isn’t evidence. Let’s see this autopsy result you’re looking at – take a picture of it the way you do for your Facebook. Let’s see this evidence.

    Of course you won’t show any of it because you’re bullshitting.

  26. Rob Taylor on January 11th, 2012 6:56 pm

    Let’s see. Neighbors say that cops had to be called on him before:

    The women were found hidden in comforters and police only showed up because someone called them to check on them:

    Cross told others Crane has threatened her:

    Autopsy results are that both women died of blunt force trauma to the head – at which point someone wrapped them up in comforters. C’mon douche, how stupid do you think we are?

    He sure must have put it to you good for you to still be his bitch.

  27. Sick & Tired on January 12th, 2012 8:49 am

    As I said in the begining let the evidence not the propaganda lead the story…funny charges are in the system where’s the indictment …who’s the douche quoting me news articles is pathetic I see how twisted your so called media is in Greenville.As for my poor typing skills ,this is why I have an excutive assistant like my political correctness.Michael Crane has been a friend of mine for over twenty years no one is saying hes perfect far from it.He’s just not the type to lay hands on any woman.Karen I know who you are,he treated your daughter well when they lived together,as for the ghetto areas he took her to,that was our neighborhood he and I are all well known your daughter was safer there than in your house. Twisted words bad theories .This story has just begun.

  28. Rob Taylor on January 12th, 2012 1:00 pm

    Yes, yes everyone’s out to frame Michael Crane. News reports of the crime are propaganda, the fact that his mugshot showed he wasn’t severely injured means nothing. I know – the Illuminati did it and they’re framing him because he knows the “truth” about chem trails!

    Like I said, I have a grand waiting for you to scan these supposed autopsy reports you saw. You didn’t see shit and you know it. You’re just another methhead who sucked him off for free ice and now you’re mad your connection is gone.

  29. pissed off on February 1st, 2012 5:15 pm

    so your a reporter – you should work for the enquirer – because your reporting nothing – it seems you should get your facts straight – investigate the other family a little bit – daughter lost kids – had to go to anger management to have visitation – mom almost charged for neglect of own mother -mother also was a hoarder – house -dog shit and rats everywhere- don’t believe me – go to the house and look yourself- MR Reporter. and if you want a new story my uncle married a alien

  30. Rob Taylor on February 1st, 2012 5:19 pm

    So you’re saying the victims had it coming. And it’s “you’re” as in you are. Also I’m a crime writer, reporters are those people who give thugs like Crane hjs in reports that make it out like he’s a victim. Tell your story to one of them I’m sure they’ll be stupid enough to buy it.

    I write about criminals the way travel writers write about warzones. I tell you the real deal information designed to keep you from ending up a victim. Sorry that means your scumbag friends make less money dealing, robbing people and killing their old ladies.

  31. piss off on February 2nd, 2012 1:54 pm

    you write crime stories for dc comics – because you don’t know what your talking about in real life. you report what you think people want to hear. Not what the truth is . You can put all the words you want in mouth – because there your words not mine.I only said investigate a little more – with that you put things back on me.How is that. Did you check any back grounds out – no – only the one your accusing. Did you take a trip to the house no – your to lazy- it’s best to set at your computer and write – wouldn’t want you to strain yourself by doing some actual investigation.Lord we wouldn’t want you to make an honest dollar- no money in telling the truth- by the way the story I gave you yesterday _ my uncle is expecting a baby – hurry get the story before the enquirer beats you to Mr Reporter – can’t wait to hear your next excuse why you can’t get off your ass and tell the truth.

  32. Rob Taylor on February 2nd, 2012 2:02 pm

    SO you’re saying I should go run a private investigation into the backgrounds of murdered women, at my own expense, so I can be fair to a person we both know will plead out. Seriously?

    I’ll assume you don’t work for a living but many of us do so we don’t have time to run around trying to support conspiracy theories designed to get a murderer to look sympathetic.

    Two women were brutally murdered and your method out friend was basically caught red handed. And this post is information I got (the investigation you love so much) not the papers, from someone who dealt with your friend personally. The funny thing is I’m doing exactly what you claim I should be doing – except you want different results.

    Speaking of honest dollars – where are you working now?

  33. piss off on February 2nd, 2012 3:03 pm

    your good -you say you investigate- now you say you don’t because its to expensive to find the truth. A real reporter would have an expense account – what I do for a living isn’t really the story – but you keep going because you don’t have a clue who I am – and when I’m ready to go public you’ll be the fool.
    so your investigation is trying to put people down – when they’re trying to lead you in the right direction. Always put words in their mouth so you can have a story. so when you come back at me please underline where I said who was guilty or Innocent – all I said is do your job and do a real investigation.

  34. Rob Taylor on February 2nd, 2012 7:27 pm

    No my job is to run websites and write freelance articles. I don’t have an expense account because I … wait for it … run this site myself. As a public service so that people get information the media isn’t telling them. But sure – people who have blogs should have expense accounts that are magically filled by the Blogger-Industrial complex.

    Do you have any idea how retarded you sound?

  35. piss off on February 3rd, 2012 3:30 am

    Yes I sound retarded because I’m talking to you – isn’t that how it works – you associate with someone – so right away your assumed a asshole to.Lets see yesterday I mention to investigate – so you assume I’m a druggie – I guess I’m double addicted – because I knew all involved – so today I’m talking to you – so today I’m considered a retarded asshole because I’m talking to you – Man great job your doing.

  36. Sick & Tired on February 3rd, 2012 1:26 pm

    Public service you mean you dont get paid ,your dumb ass pays for this site..hahaha ps free lance means unemployed and no wants you on staff because you suck as a reporter.Try being a janitor..might be a step up for you instead talking shit you clean shit

  37. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 2:55 pm

    Now you’re not even trying to speak English.

    But agian – if you read the site, I do in fact announce when articles I’ve written for pay are published. Now I know it’s not as awesome a job as beating up your drug addict girlfriend and murdering her and her family like Michael Crane, but it pays the bills and allows me to spend a lot of time with my wife – who unlike people in your social circles I don’t beat the shit out of or murder.

    Since you left comments at 3:00am and 3:00pm I’m going to assume you’re an unemployed tweaker. It is ironic that you think I need to find more lucrative employment since you clearly don’t work. I guess you suck off the tax payer teat. That’s noble.

    But yeah, I’m worse than a murderer for writing about murders. Again well argued.

  38. piss off on February 3rd, 2012 3:48 pm

    I’m kinda enjoying this with all your assuming- it’s letting people know what kind of reporter you are.You can assume all you want about me – it just adds on to my title- I’m impressed how you’ve went from reporter to free lance reporting to running this sight your self – what without pay – so you’ve been demoted 3 times in the past 3 days – I can’t wait to see what your job title is going to be tomorrow or even what name I’ll be carry from you.
    I get all this just by asking to investigate a little more – I’ve never said anyone is innocent or guilty this whole time – I’m just saying there’s more to a story – than what you post- you would never make it in a real world only seeing one side. People ask a simple question and you assume – always assuming – will never get you a real reporting job – so you stay with your little wife – keep talking your bull-shit – and hope you get your little pay check – but again you might get money from the enquirer they live on Bull Shit. Thank you again for making me laugh – I guess I should change my name from piss off – cause there ain’t nothing here to be pissed off about – You can observe my timess again – I’m so looking forward to what I’m going to be the next time you comment on me.Only if you knew who I am -

  39. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 5:09 pm

    Your logic is astounding. You’re right – You claimed I was a reporter and I said I was in fact a crime writer. Thus I was “demoted” by the invisible boss in the sky. You claimed someone else owns this site and I work for them and I said no, in fact I own this site. Another demotion! Then you tell me that I’ll never be a reporter because I’m not a reporter and don’t plan on becoming one. Gotcha! You’ve found me out.

    SO as I’ve asked you for months now – you’re so in touch with this case what’s the other side? Which reporter (and your respect for them is amusing, clearly you’ve never met one)has more info on the case than my site? My site has personal accounts of people who interacted with your scumbag friend prior to the crime. you know the way a true crime writer would do. Show me these mighty reporters you love so much who have done the same.

    And you have more than once in this thread blamed the victims of a horrible crime for their own deaths. All these attacks on me don’t distract from your own perfidious character and love all criminality.

  40. piss off on February 3rd, 2012 5:40 pm

    you are stupid – you amaze me how stupid you really are -you haven’t ask me anything for months – my first comment was on February 1 as (piss off) you think I’m going to use my email – when the email I’m using now you posted to the public- your such a reporter that you don’t even realize you have been talking to different people- are you born this stupid or is it the air in Greenville – that makes you guys stupid – OMG I’ve always tell people not to judge regardless until the facts are in – not once have I stooped to your level – I only tried to state – there are two sides to a story – but when your stupid you can only think stupid.

  41. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 5:44 pm

    I can see your IP address when you post – you’re the same person who has been bad mouthing Cross since August 11th. Changing your name and email doesn’t change your computer’s identification which shows up when you post here. You’re actually the stupid one here who doesn’t understand how the Internet works.

    And when did I post you’re email? The reason emails are required is to keep certain known spammer addresses from posting. Again, just how the web works.

  42. piss off on February 3rd, 2012 5:49 pm

    you can’t see shit – i’m right across the street read my IP address now – I’m so right – I am totally right people here are stupid

  43. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 5:53 pm

    Does taking your laptop across the street is while using the same wi-fi connection on the same computer will change your IP? Nope.

    Exact same IP as before.

  44. Sick & Tired on February 3rd, 2012 5:53 pm

    and mine ,two seperate people…..

  45. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 5:53 pm

    But again – what “reporter” has given you more information on Crane than me?

  46. Sick & Tired on February 3rd, 2012 5:58 pm

    Information you quoted three articles from the week the story broke out,and were too smart to give you any information…..this is turning into a joke at first I thought this was a real journalist page but as crap ass job as you do,I’m gonna start my own public service site such a drama queen you are Mr. Taylor

  47. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 5:59 pm

    Two separate people who both share a computer and router you mean. Like a couple of Crane’s family members living in his mother’s house?

    So again, what awesome reporter has better info on Crane than I do?

  48. piss off on February 3rd, 2012 6:06 pm

    look you haven’t gave us any information – I inquired on Feb 1 under a open email address – you’ve been talking to a different person – you lucked out because I might be someone you wanted to talk to – I know more than you think – I only asked you to check a little more into some back grounds on two people – it is sad there dead – I would never wished that on anyone – but there is more to this story – again your talking to two different people – but you couldn’t comprehend that. I never said anyone being guilty or innocent – you put all that in my mouth- I knew all of them in this case – I tried to talk to you but your stupid – sick and tired is 1 person and Piss off was a different person – look at the differences in the conversation – but your to stupid to see it

  49. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 6:18 pm

    Nice try.

    If we belied your lies about never commenting before the supposed first time you came here you said:

    “so your a reporter – you should work for the enquirer – because your reporting nothing – it seems you should get your facts straight – investigate the other family a little bit – daughter lost kids – had to go to anger management to have visitation – mom almost charged for neglect of own mother -mother also was a hoarder – house -dog shit and rats everywhere- don’t believe me – go to the house and look yourself- MR Reporter. and if you want a new story my uncle married a alien”

    That sound like you were offering information?

    I’ll ask you again and I’ll just ban you if you don’t answer. What reporter has given you more information on Crane? Why should I dig up dirt on murder victims? Why should I want to be a “reporter” instead f a crime writer? Why is the fact that drug addicts lead sucky lives relevant to a scumbag murdering them?

  50. piss off on February 3rd, 2012 6:44 pm

  51. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 7:03 pm

    So no answer, got it. Tell Crane I said he’s going to Hell next time you visit him.

  53. Rob Taylor on February 3rd, 2012 10:02 pm

    Crane will plead out. And two people being brutally murdered is a little more than “ugliness” unless you’re a scumbag degenerate.

    I notice you have not once claimed that the above post was factually wrong. That’s interesting. It’s almost as if all this bluster and all the insults are just a way to distract from the fact that Crane has a history of violent douchebaggery.

  54. Will on February 18th, 2012 4:31 am

    I probably shouldn’t get involved. I’ll just post one comment and let it be.

    There are always two sides to a story. Can we hear Crane’s side? Absolutely. But we can’t hear the side of the story from Cross and Lanser.

    When three people are in a house and only one walks out alive, it becomes fairly obvious who the suspect is. The fact that the bodies were also wrapped up in blankets/comforters and Crane did not call the authorities also raises red flags.

    Now, as far as the two people debating here…

    First and foremost, Rob Taylor, the publisher of the article, is the only person to use his name. The other person won’t even mention his name. Credibility goes to someone who isn’t afraid to mention their name.

    Secondly, Rob Taylor is an educated man. That is obvious with his grammar and ability to formulate a sentence. The other poster – I can hardly read your posts because of the grammatical mistakes and the inability to use punctuation correctly or form sentences.

    Thirdly, the other poster continues to say he has evidence. He fails to provide this evidence. He also claims “only if you knew who I am…” Well, why don’t you tell everyone and give us your credentials? It isn’t hard to do.

    Fourthly, Rob Taylor is NOT a reporter. Why the other poster can’t grasp this is beyond me, but then again, so is the inability to discern the difference between “your” and “you’re.”

    I will also say this. As someone who enjoys reading true crime, I can speak about several murderers. For this instance, I will use serial killer Ted Bundy. Before you twist my words, no, I’m not saying Crane is a serial killer. But Bundy was an upstanding citizen by day, cold-blooded killer by night. The people he worked with in the Republican Party, the Crisis Center Hotline, etc., had no idea that he was a murderer. Basically, he fooled everyone. Just because you’ve known Crane for a long time doesn’t mean you know he didn’t do this. The evidence, both forensic and circumstantial, more than implicates Crane for these two murders.

    You’re still trying to blame the murdered woman – disgusting.

    Morphine is in fact a drug, idiot and one that addicts score on the street all the time. But that doesn’t matter right? You’re just going to claim the women killed themselves and poor Micheal, who has a history of violence, is a victim.

    I hope he does get off, comes to live with you and “accidentally” kills you. Scum.

  57. LISA PRATHERS on April 21st, 2012 10:40 am

    Bullshit. On both. $100 says he pleads out.

  60. Alisha on October 17th, 2012 5:36 pm

    I am a family member of Alison Cross and I am absolutly appalled that you people can get on here and talk about her and Jane like this. Also Allison has a daughter that is old enough to get on the internet and search about her mother. Would you really want her to read some of the things you all have posted?? Let me start by saying Alison was far from a perfect person or mother but she nor Jane deserved what happened to them. I would like to get a few things straight, Allison’s children were not taken away from her, she chose to leave the kids with there other grandmother where they were better off. Allison could not financially take care of the children on her own and her mothers home was not the best environment for them so it was not best for the children to live with her. Allison may have had drug problems but so did Micheal. They both were into drugs really bad and I tried to get through to her many times but Allison loved Micheal and the lifestyle they lived. Allison did come to me one time after micheal had beat her up and I tried to talk some since into her but love is blind. So whoever said he wasn’t violent that is not true because she was black and blue I saw it with my own eyes. Allison’s grandmother was removed from the home two years prior to all of this because Jane was a hoarder not because they abused her. And just like drug use hoarding is a disease and she needed help. I believe Micheal Crane is guilty. We as the family do know the evidence against Micheal and it is substantial. Anyone who did not do anything wrong in this type of situation would have called 911. If you love anyone as Micheal claimed he loved Allison he would have done anything in his power to save her. He would not have lived in the house as if nothing was wrong for two days with two dead bodies in the room beside him. Sane or insane, I don’t know and really dont care but for the sake of the two children who lost there mother and grandmother due to the ignorance of one man, I hope Micheal Crane is punished to the full extent of the law. I loved Allison even though I did not agree with the things she did or the lifestyle she chose. I really wish before anyone posts anything else you will think about the innocent children involved Allison and Micheal’s children. I cant wait for this trial to be over and all of us to be able to move on with our lives.

    Wow Alisha Little Cross u sure have come a long way from sucking dick for meth,and I hope Alison’s children learn the truth . Her sister runs and tries to show what a god fearing women she is the same Anne Marie that stabbed Alison in the leg with scissors for not sharing her drugs…this family is pathetic and mentally unstable if Anne Marie wants everything to come full circle it will in court,nice that her father in law is Tom Bannister maybe if he would of let Jane get the help she needed instead of gettin her indicment dismissed Alison would be Alive today…Anne Marie make sure the truth is told how violent Jane was towards you girls and your granmother and again public record Jane lanser was indicted for neglect and bodily harm….thanks Tom Bannister for letting her remain alone in that house and you should of warned Alison of the dangers of cleaning up a hoarder house………

  65. lisa on May 12th, 2013 10:30 pm

Bobo is know for tampering with evidence their imaginary evidence against him is gone and the cop is crooked and we as the family gathered police reports on Allison,Jane,the dead ex Jaimie and ur idiot of a brother in law……and since Tom Bannister gets a milion or so dollars funneled thru Greenvile courts ….looks like the shoe is on the other foot….now that we have our evidence we can’t wait to go to trial we have 10 of Mike’s ex’s prepared to testify he has never hit any on them……….everything hapens for a reason if Mike would of been tried in 2012 he probably would of been found guilty with the FAMILIES political connections to Tom Bannister and the bullshit front u people presented….NOW COMES THE TRUTH REPORTS FOR ABUSE,JANE’S INDICTMENT ,MENTAL ILLNESS AND STREAKS FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST FAMILY MEMBER, A DIRTY COP……….AND MIKE THE SCAPEGOAT………..MIKE LOVED ALLISON AND PROTECTED HER FROM UR SO’CALLED’ FAMILY OF LUNATICS…….LET GO TO TRIAL LET THE WHOLE TRUTH BE KNOWN AND ALL THE POLICE REPORTS OUR FAMILY SPEMT MONTH UN COVERING….WE CRANE’S ARE READY TO HAVE MIKE FOUND INNOCENT…….AND MAY THE CROSS/BANNISTER FAMILY BURN IN HELL FOR YOUR LIES AND COVER UPS AND I HOPE HER KIDS READ THIS AND SEE WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE RAISING HER….HELL I’LL TAG IT TO HER MYSELF…CAMERON i’M SO SORRY ABOUT THE FAMILY YOU WERE BORN INTO………

    A) Case are pending until they are resolved – if you have evidence of detective corruption send me a link.

    B) Two women are DEAD. Crane was, if I recall, found sleep covered in their blood. You are blaming a woman who was MURDERED for ruining a guy’s life. WHat’s wrong with you?

    C) This post is about a witness to your man’s asinine, violent behavior. He threatened people etc. If he did this while he was sober there’s something wrong with him.

    d) I”VE BEEN SOBER MORE THAN TEN YEARS> No one sober beds down with drug addicts, period. Stop lying.

    lt Bobo was in charge of Mike evidence/see the problem looks like the lt gonna be doing more time then mike here is your link

  75. l ryder on May 15th, 2017 5:57 pm

    I think all need to look at the mother back ground she was known to be abusive there been plenty of witness who has see Allison slap kick Michael and Michael would walk away
    I just think there more to this story than being reported.

  76. Rob Taylor on May 17th, 2017 4:25 pm

    I’m going to agree with you in that very few people with a history of violent crime or drug abuse don’t come from homes with shitty – often abusive – parents. On the other hand lots of people who have shitty or abusive parents manage to rise above those circumstances so I don’t think adults should use that as an excuse.
