The second of Poe's stories involving his detective C. Auguste Dupin, "The Mystery of Marie Roget," written in 1842, is the first murder mystery story based on a real crime: the murder of Mary Cecilia Rogers who disappeared in October of 1838 in New York. Poe composed his narrative primarily by using accounts of the crime from the newspaper and paved the way for future true crime writers.
