This script is based on the true-life story of Nancy Kerley, a fifty-five year old, frail
woman who was ordered by her son-in-law to take her two-and-a-half year old granddaughter and go to the County Home in Haywood County, North Carolina to
live, since he could no longer support them.
She came back to his cabin without the baby and professed to have given her away.
Several weeks later, the girl was found in a cave, believed to have been placed there alive
and starved to death.
Nancy signed a plea bargain but never admitted she did this. She spent fifteen years of a thirty year sentence at Raleigh State Prison for hard labor. She was released at age seventy in 1929 and went on to live to age ninety-four.
There are still many relatives in the area and the case continues to bring much
controversy among local citizens.
