The Legend

Even as a young boy growing up in the rural swamps of east central North Carolina, Floyd Cranston’s behavior offered warning signs of his disturbing future. It was rumored that when he was five Floyd witnessed the death of his father. Though Floyd’s mother was never charged in Zed Cranston’s suspicious and bloody demise, authorities were convinced that it was her handy work. When investigators sought out Floyd to discuss his father’s death, they found him in the woods behind the family home dismembering the family dog with a hatchet.


Mother Cranston remained Floyd’s sole caregiver despite serious concerns expressed by the department of social services. Floyd’s school teachers described a sullen boy who exhibited strange behavior and frequently showed up at school dirty and bruised. He attended the Pitt County Primary School through the 4th grade and then simply disappeared from public view.
