How EDGAR ALLAN POE died: One of the universal masters of the short story. Edgar Allan Poe is still recognized and remembered for his horror stories. He was the first American writer who tried to live from writing, without much success.

While in Richmond he was engaged, the wedding was to take place on October 17, 1849, and even the writer got to see excited in the city. However, nothing more was known about him until he reappeared in Baltimore. On October 3 of that year, he was found delirious in the streets and very distressed. His friend James E. Snodgrass was the one who took him to Washington College Hospital, but he could never explain what happened to him.
Edgar Allan Poe died at 5 am on Sunday, October 7, 1849, after being attended by Dr. John Moran, who provided valuable information on what happened.

At present, the death of Poe is still a mystery, for both the medical reports and the death certificate of the writer were lost, and since then the speculations range from alcoholism to murder.

The remains of Poe, since 1875 rest on a monument in Baltimore, next to those of his wife and mother-in-law.
