Edgar Allen Poe

Edgar Allen Poe

Hours before his death Edgar Allen Poe was found on the streets of Baltimore. He was incoherent, wearing another man's clothes, and unable to explain how he got there. The cause of his death is an unsolved mystery. Many people think that he was a victim of cooping, a form of voter fraud. This is when someone is paid to abduct and drug a civilian then force them to go to the polls and vote for their captors' employer. This wasn't an uncommon thing to happen back then and explains most of his situation when found close to death on the streets.
