The mysterious 1957 disappearance of attorney Maud Robinson Crawford, who was U.S. Senator John L. McClellan’s former associate, was believed by many to be linked to the senator’s investigation of organized crime. However, journalist Beth Brickel, in a 1986 series of articles for the Arkansas Gazette, implicated Arkansas State Police Commissioner Mike Berg, shown here, in Crawford’s disappearance. Though her body was never found, Crawford was declared dead due to foul play in 1969.
