A suspended Alabama priest, Alex Crow, faces accusations of marrying an 18-year-old woman he fled to Italy with this summer. The recent revelation, supported by state records and an archbishop, raises concerns about Crow’s actions and potential consequences.
State records, specifically a marriage certificate filed in Mobile County, provide evidence of the union between Alex Crow, a 30-year-old Catholic priest in south Alabama, and the 18-year-old woman. The certificate points to a civil marriage and raises questions about the circumstances surrounding their relationship.
Archbishop’s Response: Suspended Alabama Priest
Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi, who suspended Crow in July, expressed doubt about the priest’s return to the priesthood. The recent confirmation of the marriage aligns with Rodi’s judgment, leading to expectations of Alex Crow’s eventual laicization by the Vatican.
Legal Investigation Closure: Suspended Alabama Priest
The district attorney in Mobile County recently closed an investigation into criminal wrongdoing in the relationship between Crow and the young woman. Despite legal scrutiny, the case took a turn when the woman declined to answer questions during a meeting with an attorney, leaving the investigation inconclusive.
