FREE!! Dan Keller was released today from imprisonment in Texas. His wife of many years, Fran, who spent 21 years behind bars just as Dan did, was on hand to embrace Dan. Fran was just released last week. The Kellers were victims of the 1980s-1990s Satanic daycare panic. Their case has been sponsored for many years by NCRJ, and our advisors contributed to the writs for the Kellers.
