 In [[Boone County]], Kentucky, the Kiger Family is most well known for the events that took place on August 17th, 1943 at Rosegate Farm. Nearly seventy years and several news articles, a book and two plays later, speculation and controversy still swirl around the night Carl Kiger and his six year old son, Jerry died. At the center of that notorious night was Carl’s fifteen year old daughter, Joan, who was later placed on trial for the shooting deaths of both Carl and Jerry. In [[Boone County]], Kentucky, the Kiger Family is most well known for the events that took place on August 17th, 1943 at Rosegate Farm.
