In 1912, one of the biggest stories in Mississippi history made national headlines: the alleged kidnapping of 4-year-old Bobby Dunbar. Months after the boy had gone missing, the reward money grew so high that even law enforcement was stopping anyone with a little boy to see if he was Bobby. A well-known tinker by trade, Cantwell Walters was traveling from North Carolina with his 4year old nephew, Bruce Anderson; they were following a route he'd taken many times before to see famiies that knew him well, from Marion County to Pearl River County, Mississippi. In a series of terrible events, Bruce was taken away by the Dunbars, who swore that was their son. Walters was charged with kidnapping and faced a public hanging. It's wild true story and we have the author of Mizpah: The Bobby Dunbar Kidnapping Legend on the show with proof.
