Statement from the Archdiocese of Mobile regarding Fr. Alex Crow

MOBILE, ALA. - Fr. Alex Crow abandoned his assignment in the Archdiocese. His
behavior is totally unbecoming of a priest. He has been informed by the archbishop

nor to dress as a priest.

In addition, due to the circumstances of his departure, we have reported this to the
district attorney.
