Not Our Son

George and Margaret Keller are parents of America’s most prolific serial arsonist, who terrorized western Washington in 1992-93. I met them through a mutual friend in 1996, a year after CBS aired a TV movie about the arson spree. Actor Neil Patrick Harris played Paul Keller, who was arrested after his parents tipped off fire and police officials. George grew suspicious after seeing a police sketch in the newspaper. The suspect looked like his son, and it was. The family’s cooperation led to Paul’s arrest, which made national headlines. The fallout crushed George and Margaret emotionally and financially. Friends left them. They lost their home and advertising business. Healing took years but the Kellers are alive and well and serving Jesus Christ. George Keller Ministries has provided links below to the CBS movie.
