Brainerd Brown was the brother of Crewy Lou Brown. He was a broad-shouldered man with light hair.

Brainerd was a professor at the University of Medicine who learned of his sister's criminal activities and was appalled. He became determined to eliminate her and remove the embarrassment to the family. Brainerd kidnapped Crewy Lou and began to arrange for her death, but she was able to kill him instead.

Notes Edit

  • In light of the fact that Brainerd was a professor at a university of medicine, it is possible that he was also a medical doctor. However, this was not confirmed.
