Ichabod Crane is wanted by everyone in the third episode of The Wolf Among Us, A Crooked Mile. Not even his deputy days were able to give him as much popularity as now. Sadly, the motives are not the best. Bigby and Snow want to arrest him for fraud and attempted murder of Lily and Faith. The common Fables want him for being a shameless criminal and the Crooked Man gang is pursuing him for unknown reasons. Find out in detail why the different fable factions want to catch Crane.
The Business Office, mainly represented by Bigby and Snow, is hunting Crane for multiple crimes. At the end of the second episode, Smoke and Mirrors, Bigby found harsh evidence pointing towards Crane as the prime suspect of Lily’s murder. It’s also known that Crane has been deviating public funds and denying his deputy mayor obligations. But these were previously acknowledged by the pair, what triggered the detention however, was Crane’s involvement with possibly two fable murders. After the events of A Crooked Mile, it becomes clear that Crane might be a lot of things but murderer is not one of them; he’s simply too coward and too fond of Snow to have killed her imitation.
