The FBI has SOLVED the cold case of kidnapped Sharon Marshall and has released information about the Suzanne Sevakis a.k.a. Sharon Marshall and Michael Gregory Hughes kidnapping cases.
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.
In 1974, Sandi Chipman Sevakis married a violent felon whose offenses included rape, kidnapping & murder, who fled prison under the alias Brandon Williams. He surfaced in North Carolina, concealing his real identity Franklin Delano Floyd; a schizophrenic with a long criminal history, include the rape of a 4 year old girl in Atlanta, Georgia.
Here is a picture of Suzanne Marie Sevakis, before the kidnapping, at age 4:

They moved to Texas. This corroborates the story by a relative of Franklin Floyd, who said Floyd was seen in Texas in 1974 with little "Suzanne."

Sharon Marshall posing for a "glamour" photograph in her 1986 Forest Park High School yearbook: [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 the 2 youngest sisters in a "children's home" and fled to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with Suzanne, where they lived under false assumed identities as "Trenton B. Davis" and his daughter "Suzanne Davis".

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.


Sharon Marshall at Alhambra High School, 1983

In 1983, Sharon Marshall was about 13-14. 

She was enrolled as a Freshman in Alhambra High School in Phoenix, Arizona, by the convicted felon who kidnapped and abused her: Franklin Delano Floyd.

Sharon looks a little younger in her freshman yearbook photo for the Phoenix, Arizona High School, than in her next Freshman year High School yearbook.

Whenever Sharon became too close to people or suspicious questions were asked, Franklin Floyd a.k.a. Warren Marshall fled town, forcing "Sharon" to change schools again and again.

Their next stop would be Georgia, where "Sharon Marshall" {Suzanne Sevakis} would be enrolled in 3 more High Schools before settling into Forest Park High School, for her Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years.

Here she is in the 1983 Alhambra High School yearbook, page 203: 

The wide smile, pointed chin and squarish jaw, the blonde streak on top of her head, and hairstyle are the same as appears in her next photo, also enrolled as a freshman in 1983 at North Hall High School.

Sharon was maturing fast, and the uncommon blonde beauty was already turning heads.

Alhambra High School in Phoenix, Arizona is located at 3839 W. Camelback Ave., Phoenix, Arizona 85019.  http://www.alhambrahs.org/alhambra


Sharon Marshall at North Hall High School, 1983

In 1983, Sharon Marshall was 14. She was enrolled as a Freshman in North Hall High School in Gainesville, Georgia, by the man who abducted her: Franklin Floyd, hiding behind the alias "Warren Marshall" in 1983.
North Hall High School [incorrectly identified as "Northside High School" in Matt Birkbeck's book "A Beautiful Child] is located at 4885 Mt. Vernon Road, Gainesville, Georgia 30506. http://nhhs.hallco.org/web
"Sharon" knew that "Warren Marshall" was her stepfather using another alias, and that he kidnapped her when she was 5 years old.

Sharon also knew her life would be in grave danger if she ever shared Floyd's dark secrets.
The stunning, unforgettable blonde with long hair and magnetic blue eyes possessed a photographic memory. She was just a wisp over 5 feet tall. No doubt she remembered her birth family, who she lived with until she was approaching 6 years of age.

Here she is in the 1983 North Hall High School yearbook:

Here is "Sharon Marshall" at about 14 in Alhambra High School (left) and North Hall High School:
Sharon's hair and blouse collar are the same. In Georgia, she matured rapidly.

Sharon Marshall / Suzanne Sevakis Family

Left to right, circa 1960
* Clifford Ray Sevakis - the father of Suzanne Marie Sevakis a.k.a. Sharon Marshall
* his mother Lillian Trapp Sevakis (Suzanne's grandmother, 1918-2013), 
* his father Ray Sevakis (Suzanne's grandfather - married to Lillian 71 years), 
* his sister Nancy Sevakis (Suzanne's aunt)

Lillian Trapp Sevakis was a petite, cute blonde with a wide smile and strong Christian faith. Sadly, her granddaughter Suzanne Marie Sevakis was not mentioned in her obituary.

Suzanne Marie Sevakis' daughter born in New Orleans on August 11, 1989 is named Megan.

Megan is a beautiful, talented college graduate with the wide Sevakis smile. With her talent and fate, is Megan destined for fame?

One can hope so.

To breathe life and meaning to an uncommon beauty who's short life touched others unforgettably, and perhaps, promote awareness of non-custodial parental abduction, its consequences, and share new ways of locating kidnapped children.


Sharon Marshall at Forest Park High School, Georgia - 1986

Above is a portrait of Sharon Marshall (Suzanne Sevakis) taken while she was enrolled at Forest Park High School, in Forest Park, Georgia.
Franklin Delano Floyd: psychopath, rapist, murderer, kidnapper. The convicted felon forced the step-daughter he kidnapped in late spring of 1975 to enroll in Forest Park High School in Forest Park, Georgia, under the alias he chose to conceal her identity:, "Sharon Marshall." But it was a long road from Oklahoma City to Forest Park, Georgia, during which "Sharon" was forced to move and assume new identities when locals became suspicious.

In Oklahoma City, Floyd seized "Suzanne Davis" and fled - after a babysitter informed law enforcement that Floyd was molesting his "daughter." What evidence did the babysitter find? Floyd did take photographs. As the years passed and Suzanne Sevakis grew up, Floyd became more experienced at deception.                                                                                                          

"Sharon Marshall" was a gifted student with a stellar IQ, a breathtakingly beautiful blue-eyed blonde, model-thin but curvy, with a swan-like graceful neck, a pert nose and a wide beautiful smile, just a wisp over 5 feet tall. She had a cowlick and fussed with it when she styled her hair.                                                                                  

"Sharon Marshall" applied and was accepted into Georgia Tech University as an Aeronautical Engineering student - to become an astronaut!

She was so gifted that she was listed in the book "Who's Who" of American High School students.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
At Georgia's Forest Park High School, Sharon Marshall exuded unforgettable beauty, tenderness, sophistication, style, intelligence and ROTC leadership.

24 years after her death, Sharon's DNA was matched to her mother's, and her family learned of her sad fate.

Sharon/Suzanne died in a hit-and-run crash, with possible intentional blunt trauma injury to the back of her head, less than 4 years after graduating Forest Park High School.

By April 1990 when she was murdered, she had given birth to at least 3 children; two boys and her last known birth, a girl, in New Orleans, Louisiana, on August 11, 1989. The baby girl was adopted out by a wonderful family in Louisiana.

When "Sharon" graduated, she was 7 months pregnant. Sharon gave birth in July 1986 to a baby boy in Arizona. It is said the boy was adopted by a wealthy couple who are both doctors, living in a huge house in Dallas, Texas, with his own private nanny. The father of the baby boy is Curtis Flournoy, a young man Sharon Marshall briefly dated in Georgia.

In Sharon Marshall's senior yearbook, the man who had kidnapped her 9 years ago, wrote a dedication: 
"Look out Georgia Tech! Hello future Air Force General and aeronautical engineering career. Dad."


The Family of Suzanne Marie Sevakis / Sharon Marshall

The story begins with the parents of Suzanne Marie Sevakis.
They met at Southfield High School in the late 1960's and married.
This is Suzanne/Sharon's mother, Sandi Chipman, in her 1968 Southfield High School yearbook:
Look closely at Sandi. Sharon Marshall inherited her cowlick from her mother.

Suzanne's father was Clifford Ray Sevakis, a 1967 graduate of Southfield High School.

Cliff Sevakis and Sandi Chipman in Southfield High School in Michigan where they met.
On September 9, 1969, they became the parents of Suzanne Marie Sevakis.
In 1974, Sandra Chipman was a recently divorced woman with 3 daughters and a baby son.
Suzanne Marie Sevakis was the first born; Sandra Chipman remarried and gave birth to 2 more daughters (Dorothy and Amy) and a son, the youngest.

Sandra was a young divorced woman with small children, including Suzanne born in 1969 and Amy, born in 1972.

In 1974, Franklin Floyd crossed paths with Sandi, and saw an opportunity to have legal access to children. He was a total stranger who falsely represented himself as "Brandon Cleo Williams" who was in fact a terrifyingly violent convicted felon wanted by the law.
  On June 12, 1974 in North Carolina, Sandi married "Brandon Cleo Williams".
She and her tiny helpless children were in dire, imminent danger!

They settled into the appearance of a family life with four small children. Brandon/Floyd now had legal access to Sandi's 4 small children.
What was Franklin Delano Floyd's real reason for marrying Sandi, and moving in with 4 helpless children?

Did Sandra Chipman have any photographs of "Brandon Williams" ?

Didn't Cliff Sevakis want to meet the man living with his 5 year old daughter Suzanne, acting in the role of her 'father'?

If Brandon/Franklin resisted being photographed, didn't that have set off alarm bells?

Did Williams/Floyd carry a driver's license with a photo? Any clues as to his relatives, birthplace, parents/sibling names, etc.?

[When applying for a job, a thorough background check is done. When moving in with someone, an even more thorough background check should be done. Do it without telling them.]

Did Sandi send any photos of her new husband "Brandon" with her children, to her family in Michigan? Sandi, "Brandon", and Sandi's 4 children were all together in Christmas 1974.

"Brandon"/Floyd certainly had a camera and experience with photography; he used it to photograph Suzanne/Sharon/Tonya over the years - later found by law enforcement, concealed in a truck he had owned.

Regardless, Sandra and Cliff could have given a description, even had an artist's rendering of what "Brandon Williams" looked like, and created a web site for their missing daughter, Suzanne Marie Sevakis, kidnapped in 1975 by her stepfather, once the internet became available in the 1990's. The key words "Suzanne" "Williams" "1969" "1975" "stepfather" would have displayed the page. This never happened, nor was Suzanne even listed as a missing person, nor was her DNA in the NEMEC data base - where it would have found a hit.

Sometime after Sandra and "Brandon" a.k.a. Floyd married, they moved the family to Texas. In late spring 1975, in Dallas, Sandra Chipman "Williams" wrote a bad check for baby diapers and was sent to jail for 30 days.

[Did Franklin/Brandon intentionally empty Sandra's bank account, then send her to buy diapers with a check? What had he planned in advance?]

While Sandra was jailed, "Brandon" moved fast.

He stole Sandra's children, dropping Dorothy and Amy off at a Social Services Agency, and sped away with tiny Suzanne, who he said later, had agreed to go with him. What lies did Franklin Floyd tell Suzanne? Suzanne/Sharon later told people at Forest High School that her mother was "murdered." Near the end of her life, she told friends that Floyd was her stepfather, and he had been molesting her since he took her. Suzanne / Sharon remembered the trauma of being taken away.

When they surfaced in Oklahoma City in the summer of 1975, Suzanne Sevakis became "Suzanne Davis." She was about to turn 6 years old.

Floyd became "Trenton Davis" and enrolled "Suzanne Davis" in Wilson Elementary School.

Did devious Floyd manage to seize all photographs of him from their home in Dallas to erase any evidence? 

Sandra Chipman "Williams" was turned away by the local police and FBI - who told her "Brandon Williams" was her 4 children's stepfather and thus had a right to take her children and vanish, even though he suspiciously left 2 behind.

Sandra was able to find and recover her two youngest daughters from the local Social Service agency.

Franklin Floyd told investigators the woman he saved "Sharon" from a woman with the last name of "Williams" - his alias' last name in 1974 and part of 1975. And that he got "Sharon" out of a bad situation - meaning somehow the mother wasn't there. And "Sharon's" first name when they surfaced in Oklahoma city was "Suzanne". These pieces of the puzzle are glaringly obvious.

Apparently, no one believed her enough to take legal action. Suzanne/Sharon was alone in the world, under the complete control and dominance of a fugitive psychopath, with no one to turn to.

She had secrets to keep to stay alive - Franklin Delano Floyd's secrets - including his many aliases, addresses, and crimes - at the risk of her life.

Did Franklin Floyd have any feelings for his stepdaughter Suzanne? NO.
Years later, an auto mechanic found photographs of Franklin abusing Suzanne. A true psychopath, Franklin Delano Floyd kep souvenirs of his victims.

Franklin Floyd has admitted to murdering Suzanne's son Michael Hughes (Franklin was also not his father, but lied and claimed he was), and Suzanne Marie Sevakis' infant brother.


UPDATED! Sharon Marshall a.k.a. Suzanne Davis

Case Solved by FBI!
 SHARON MARSHALL / Suzanne Davis / Tonya Dawn Tadlock
Suzanne Marie Sevakis,
born in North Carolina in 1969.

In June 1973, career criminal (focused on attacking women and children) Franklin Delano Floyd (his birth name; he had many aliases) was released from prison.
Franklin Floyd immediately violated his parole and fled to North Carolina.

When he slipped into North Carolina under his new alias Brandon Cleo Williams, 
unsuspecting people did not know that Floyd already had a history of terrifyingly violent multiple offenses of rape, kidnap, assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, and worse.
In North Carolina in 1974, under an alias, Floyd met a divorced woman with 3 daughters and an infant son.
They married on June 1974, and shortly after, his new bride Sandra Chipman was jailed for 30 days for writing a bad check for baby diapers.
Franklin Floyd saw his golden opportunity. He 2 of Sandra Chipman's 3 daughters off at a Social Services agency, murdered Suzanne's baby brother, seized Suzanne Sevakis, and fled thousands of miles away, to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with just Suzanne, now called "Suzanne Davis."
Franklin Floyd's latest alias became Trenton Davis, and he posed as Suzanne's father. The photo above is the earliest known released photograph of Suzanne Sevakis with her kidnapper. The terrified little girl had know idea where she was or where her mother was.
He left the photograph with his employer in Oklahoma City, who still had it and remembered him decades later.
{since Suzanne Sevakis was identified in October 2014, Franklin Floyd has admitted to killing Suzanne's baby brother and her son - Michael Hughes. How many more defenseless babies & children did Franklin Delano Floyd murder, or sell for cash?}
When Suzanne's mother Sandra Chipman was released from jail, she was able to recover her 2 daughters from the social services agency, but her new husband "Brandon Williams," her daughter Suzanne Marie Sevakis, and her infant son had vanished without a trace.
Sadly, the family of Suzanne Marie Sevakis never filed a missing person report!
Suzanne was not living with her father Clifford Sevakis - why didn't he file a missing persons report about his biological daughter, who carried his name?
Franklin Floyd, under the new alias "Trenton Davis," surfaced in August 1975, when he enrolled "Suzanne Davis" in Wilson Elementary School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Suzanne's first name remained the same - until he fled again, after a babysitter notified the law that Franklin Floyd was "molesting" his "daughter."

Law enforcement officials knew that "Suzanne" was not Franklin Floyd's daughter, as he was incarcerated for more violent crimes during the time she was conceived. [PROVEN FACT]

In later interviews, he claimed to have rescued her from a "bad situation." [TRUE HINT]

Sharon/Suzanne had also told friends that Floyd was her "stepfather." [TRUE HINT]

Sadly, this was not taken seriously enough to research until summer 2014. When they found Franklin Floyd's 1974 alias, Brandon Cleo Williams, they were able to match his marriage record to Sandra Chipman, who identified Suzanne as her daughter, first by photograph, then by DNA, which tested as a positive match in October 2014.

Whew. 40 years is a **long** time to find out what happened to your missing daughter - and Suzanne was only matched to her real family because law enforcement, web sleuthers, writers, and others took the initiative.

DNA testing matched Sharon Marshall / Tonya Dawn Tadlock / Suzanne Davis / Suzanne Marie Sevakis to her adopted biological daughter, born in Louisiana, a beautiful college graduate, who wants to meet her mother's birth family.

The mystery has been solved.

Sadly Franklin Delano Floyd also admitted to killing Michael Hughes.
It would be gracious if the caring, nice foster parents who tried so hard to save Michael Hughes and adopt him, are invited.

When the Social Services worker in Oklahoma City visited Michael Hughes with his foster parents, she was happy to report continuous improvement in the adorable little boy.


Sharon Marshall with Michael Anthony Hughes

Sharon gave birth to "Michael Gregory Marshall" in Tampa, Florida, on April 21, 1988.
It is notable that Sharon/Tonya gave her son his father's first name, as his middle name: Gregory.
Franklin Floyd was NOT his father.
The baby's biological father was Gregory Higgs, a student in Phoenix, Arizona. He and "Sharon" became involved in the summer of 1987, and "Michael" was conceived there in July. "Sharon" and Floyd returned to Florida, with Greg unaware that "Sharon" was carrying his unborn child.
When they fled to Louisiana, Franklin Floyd forced "Sharon Marshall" to assume yet another alias, "Tonya Dawn Tadlock" and marry him in New Orleans, using the name "Clarence Marcus Hughes" on June 15, 1989. Michael was given a new alias of "Michael Anthony Hughes."
Sharon's kidnapper, Franklin Delano Floyd, is not Michael's father, as proven by a DNA test.
Floyd has admitted to killing Michael. The FBI has information on the possible location of his remains, so there is hope to recover him for a proper family burial.
His mother, buried as "Tonya 1967-1990" in Park Grove Cemetery, Broken Arrow, Tulsa County, Oklahoma.
It is now known that Sharon/Suzanne/Tonya was born in 1969, so she was about 20 when Floyd killed her in a night time hit-and-run attack as she was walking from a store back to the hotel room they were temporarily living in, on April 25, 1990. She died 5 days later, April 30, 1990.
Above, Sharon Marshall (after assuming alias "Tonya Dawn Tadlock") circa 1989, with her son, Michael Anthony Hughes / Michael Gregory Marshall.
His real father learned of his son Michael after Sharon/Tonya's death, but Floyd vanished again before Gregory Higgs could find him.
Franklin Delano Floyd abducted Michael Hughes, age 6, from Indian Meridian Elementary School, on September 12, 1994, in Choctaw, Oklahoma, taking the little boy from the school at gunpoint
 "Tonya" is buried under this tombstone in Park Grove Cemetery in Tulsa, Oklahoma,
a gift from the friends she had recently made in Oklahoma.
Her real identity can now be placed on the tombstone:
Suzanne Marie Sevakis
1969 - 1990
❤ Beloved daughter, sister, mother ❤
Justice will be served.

Book About Kidnap Victim Sharon Marshall

"A Beautiful Child" by Matt Birkbeck. Her name is not on the front cover, but the name given to her by her kidnapper, was "Sharon Marshall" in Forest Park High School in Georgia, where she graduated in 1986, when she was 7 months pregnant.

Sharon Marshall / Suzanne Davis - Kidnap Victim

Here are photographs of "Sharon Marshall" as a teenager in Georgia.

Did you know "Sharon" at Forest Park High School in Georgia? Please send your comments with any helpful information you have.

Sharon (on the right) with Jennifer Fisher, her only close friend from (another) High School. 

Here is Sharon Marshall, at Forest Park High School, Georgia.
The school year is 1984/5, and she is on the Prom Committee:
Tragically, a "Missing Persons Report" was never filed for Suzanne Marie Sevakis nor was her DNA put into NMEC, and she was never listed in any missing persons database.
Had these easy tasks been done, she would have been found much sooner.
