    there is a hormone..specifically adrenocorticotropic hormone(generally related with stress feelings,emotion and stuff)...This, paired with increased mucosal secretion during crying, could lead to a theory that crying is a mechanism developed in humans to dispose of this stress hormone when levels grow too high.
