Suzanne Marie Sevakis was born in Michigan on September 9, 1969, the first born of Sandra Chipman and Cliff Sevakis. They met in Southfield High School in Southfield, Michigan. They divorced.
Sandra had another daughter, Amy, who was born in June 1972.
In 1974, Sandra, Suzanne, and Amy, an infant son, and possibly another daughter were living in North Carolina....when a man sporting the false ID "Brandon Cleo Williams" suddenly appeared out of nowhere.
"Brandon" had a friendly smile. He attended churches. He painted houses.
And Brandon "liked children."
In June, Sandra married "Brandon Williams." Franklin Floyd had escaped prison just the year before. She believed his carefully concocted web of lies. He had already been diagnosed as a schizophrenic. In June 1974, Suzanne was 4, and Amy was 2 that month.
"Brandon Williams" had no relatives or friends in the state. He was in prison when Suzanne Sevakis was conceived in December 1968.
"Brandon" convinced Sandra to move the family to Texas, where the law would be less likely to find him. This corroborates a statement given by a relative of Franklin Floyd, who said Floyd was seen in Texas in 1974 with little "Suzanne."

She is cheerless, her blouse is inappropriately unbuttoned, and the "Dad" in the message was Franklin Delano Floyd, a felon with an alias posing as her father.
In late spring 1975, Sandi Chipman Williams was arrested in Dallas for writing a bad check. During the brief time she was jailed, "Brandon Williams" dropped Amy and possibly another daughter in a "children's home" and fled to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with Suzanne.
There they assumed new identities: he was now "Trenton B. Davis" and she was "Suzanne Davis." where they lived under false assumed identities as "Trenton B. Davis" and she was his daughter "Suzanne Davis".
Only he knows what lies he told to the helpless 5 year old girl to convince her that her mother had "died" and he had "rescued her from a bad situation" - which he later told the FBI, including identifying the name "Williams" as belonging to someone he knew.
Franklin Delano Floyd has confessed to killing Michael Hughes by shooting him twice in the back of the head. He told the FBI where to find Michael's remains, but it is two decades later, no remains were found.
Mr. and Mrs. Bean, who were in the process of adopting Michael Hughes, received the news from the FBI, and are saddened at his death, but they look forward to seeing Michael again in heaven.
