Episode 90: Dan and Fran's Daycare

Episode 90,  Dec 02, 2021, 05:00 AM

Before 1991, Dan and Fran Keller were just an All- American couple running their own day care business in the town of Oak Hill, Texas. When accusations  
surface from several children, allegedly disclosing the details of what was happening at the daycare, the entire town turns upside down. Those aware of the allegations developed one mission, to bring the Keller’s down. This case is a prime example of what happens when people cannot see beyond a narrative that was created right from the start. But was it the TRUTH?  You truly will not believe the outcome.
