Sure enough, we went and performed some research and it turned out that Hollywood made a move called the “Lonely Hearts” starring John Travolta and Selma Hayek. Still, we could never figure out why Jennie Breeding McKee took such an interest in the story. That is, until we approached our key researcher in Carroll County on this. She did a little digging and found out that the victim’s name was Myrtle Young and her older half-sister was Susie Satterfield Breeding, the wife of Carson Breeding. Once we knew this connection, this became another high profile incident in our family’s history and we then set out to learn as much about this story as possible.
