One night Poe was resting peacefully, until he heard an awful sound coming from his wine cellar.
Eventually he built up enough courage to just take a peek.
Through the room of his dead relatives.
As he went down the wine cellar he encountered what he thought a rat but was actually something that had the silhouette of a person.
His mother was waiting for this one moment to get revenge on Edgar killing her. He was deliberately stuffed alive into a barrel full of wine and left there by his ghost mother.
After people not hearing from Poe for a while there were investigators sent to his house to check where he was and they stumbled upon these huge barrels of wine. They decided to ship them out but in a hasty way as they were scared of being caught and then they dropped all of the barrels and out spilled Poe, left in a gutter.
