Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of longtime journalist and author Kieran Crowley, who passed away this week after his battle with leukemia. He was 66.
Crowley is a member of the Long Island Journalism Hall of Fame. He will be missed.
Crowley, a New York Times bestselling author, worked for the New York Post for 36 years and covered Long Island news for more than two decades. His career spanned thousands of cases.
On the Island, he covered Amy Fisher, Katie Beers, the Long Island Rail Road massacre and the Ted Ammon murder. Beyond Long Island, he wrote about serial killers David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz, Joel Rifkin and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. Along the way, Crowley uncovered exclusives on scores of major cases.
He is the author of the books: Sleep My Little Dead: The True Story of the Zodiac Killer; Burned Alive; The Surgeon’s Wife, and Almost Paradise: The East Hampton Murder of Ted Ammon. Burned Alive and The Surgeon’s Wife were both on The New York Times bestsellers list.
