How Did Poe Die?

Filed under: Frank Remarks — Frank Fiore @ 7:57 AM

The final days of Edgar Allan Poe have inspired more conspiracy theories than JFK and Elvis combined.

There are over 26 theories including rabies, diabetes, epilepsy, carbon monoxide poisoning, alcohol dehydrogenase, and cooping.

But let’s examine the facts.

Matthew Mercier writes that it was a common practice in our young Democracy to abduct isolated people during city elections, ply them with liquor, and then force them to vote multiple times. (The democrats were stealing elections even back then).

This would explain Poe’s deathly state when found in a Baltimore tavern – which doubled as a polling site – and the fact that he was wearing clothes that were not his.
