Is Where The Crawdads Sing A True Story?
Delia Owens’ best-selling book of the same name, Where the Crawdads Sing, was published in 2018 and is the inspiration for the film. There are various allusions to Delia’s personal life throughout her novel, including the fact that she and her husband were the principal suspects in the shooting of an alleged poacher in Zambia in 1995, which she mentions in passing.
According to Bustle, the Zambian government was still investigating the crime in 2010 when the couple returned to the United States.
