Fran Keller Raw Footage // Travis County Jail

Fran Keller, Travis County Jail, at Dan Keller’s Release from Prison // Southwest of Salem Documentary 

"Among the atrocities that Frances and Dan Keller were supposed to have committed while running a day care center out of their Texas home: drowning and dismembering babies in front of the children; killing dogs and cats in front of the children; transporting the children to Mexico to be sexually abused by soldiers in the Mexican army…"

In light of Slate’s compelling article about the Fran & Keller we’d release some footage of Fran Keller addressing the media at Dan’s release. 

Fran and Dan served 22 years of a 48-year sentence. They are fighting for exoneration, like the San Antonio Four.

Slate has been doing a series of articles of Satanic panic; Fran and Dan are featured in this one. Fran and Dan Keller also sat down with our crew.
