Two People Vanish Without a Trace in tiny Eastern Shore Village
On August 7, 1953 a sixty-six year old woman named Florence Wingate who lived in the village of Crapo (pronounce cray-po), made breakfast for her brother Miles who was a waterman. That was the last time anyone saw Florence alive … except maybe by her killer.
Understand that Crapo is tiny tiny tiny. It’s barely a crossroads in the rural marshy Lake District of Lower Dorchester County – 24 miles from Cambridge. Probably no more than 50-100 people lived in and around Crapo back then. So everybody knew everybody.
