Nancy Grace Stuns Dad: Your Missing Son Found In Basement — Watch WEIRD Video

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates




Nancy Grace told a shocked father on live TV that his missing 12-year-old son had been found alive after nearly two weeks — in the family’s basement.


Things got really weird during the Wednesday interview with Charles Bothuell IV, whose son Charlie had been reported missing earlier this month.

When Grace told Bothuell that she had just heard Charlie was found, the shocked dad seemed to start hyperventilating as Grace took an accusatory tone.

“Sir, did you check your basement?” she asked.

Bothuell replied, “I checked my basement, the FBI checked my basement, the Detroit Police checked my basement, my wife checked my basement. I’ve been down there several times.”

Investigators later confirmed that Charlie had indeed been discovered in the basement, barricaded behind boxes.

Police say it’s not clear whether he was there the entire time, whether his parents knew he was there, or whether he could have built the barricade by himself.

The whole thing is really bizarre — and the Grace interview is a must-watch.
