Asheville, North Carolina (CNN)A congressman paid tribute to him, the county school system dedicated a library in his name and a state university awarded him an honorary degree, calling him a source of inspiration and emulation.

Shelley Love Baldwin says Bill Murdock sexually abused her. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge but says he is innocent. Three decades later, she says, "The truth is story is important."

Heather Barbieri was Shelley's little sister, but she took on a big job. She feels the impact to this day.

In 1988, Doug Love confronted Bill Murdock and secretly taped the encounter. Murdock told CNN he did not want to hear the entire recording, presented here, but listened to parts of it and confirmed it was authentic. It shows Murdock denied sexually abusing Shelley but asked for forgiveness and offered to resign his teaching job.

Doug Love describes the way he feels Bill Murdock ingratiated himself with the family -- and the resulting devastation.

Scott Love says his parents lived their faith -- and opened their door to Bill Murdock in his time of need.
