Netflix’s true crime documentaries can be quite dark, and its latest in the genre, Girl in the Picture , has hit a particular sensitive nerve with viewers, who have called the story “horrifying and sickening”. Based on investigative journalist Matt Birkbeck’s books, A Beautiful Child and its sequel Finding Sharon , the documentary tells the tragic life of a young woman named Tonya Hughes (real name Suzanne Sevakis) who was found dead by the side of the road in Oklahoma City in 1990. Her younger child Michael Hughes went missing, and subsequently kidnapped. A mysterious man, Clarence, identified her body later and claimed to be her husband. However, as it turns out, this was only the beginning of a confusing and disturbing crime unravelling. We unveil more about Clarence’s dark past, his other murders and his real name: Franklin Delano Floyd.

Here’s the story: The story of one evil Franklin Delano Floyd As seen in the documentary, Floyd had a disturbing childhood himself. Born in Georgia, in 1943, he was raised by his mum and her parents, among five children. His life of crime started early, as when he was 16 years old, he stole a gun from a department store. In 1962, he abducted and sexually assaulted a four-year-old girl and received 20 years in prison, but was released after 10 years. Not long after, he went back to prison (but got released on bail) for assaulting a woman in her car. Later, he met Sandra Brandenburg, who turned out to be Sevakis’ biological mother and who had a past relationship with Floyd. It was while Brandenburg was serving a 30-day prison sentence (for passing a bad cheque) that Floyd kidnapped Sevakis and her siblings. In 1990, following Sevakis’ hit-and-run accident, Floyd became the person of interest in her death but was never charged in the case. Floyd was, however, convicted of kidnapping Sevakis’ six-year-old boy, Michael Hughes, and then sentenced to death for the murder of Sevakis’ colleague Cheryl Ann Commesso in 1997, after photographic evidence was found in his truck and used to convict him of the crime. Who is Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter, Etta Ng Chok-lam? Was he the father of Michael Hughes, then? Netflix’s Girl in the Picture has many leads, so we forgive you if you think Michael Hughes was Franklin Floyd’s son. He was not. The truth came out after Sevakis’ death – two-year-old Hughes was then put into foster care and via a DNA test, it was revealed that he was not Floyd’s son. According to Screen Rant, two persons of interest have claimed to be Hughes’ possible fathers: Kevin Brown and Gregory Higgs. Sevakis was apparently dating Higgs while she was with Floyd in Phoenix, Arizona. The two were planning to elope but were found by Floyd who then forced Sevakis to marry him and again forced her to change her identity. It has also been reported that Sevakis dated Kevin Brown before her death. As the FBI discovered in 2014, after kidnapping Hughes from his school Floyd had apparently murdered Hughes on the same day he disappeared in September 1994, as reported by Screen Rant. But as seen in the documentary, Hughes’ remains have never been found. He would have been 34 if he were alive today. The next HoYeon Jung?

Another character was introduced later on and she turned out to be Sevakis’ third child, who goes by the name Megan Dufresne. She was adopted in 1989 and learned about her true identity after reading Matt Birkbeck’s book. Although in the documentary, there was no direct implication that Dufresne is Floyd’s daughter, it has been widely accepted (thanks to Reddit users) that he is. Currently, Dufresne lives in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, with her husband Jacob and two children, per GQ Magazine . However, another mystery still remains involving Sevakis’ missing second child who till this day has never been found. What happened to Sevakis’ siblings, after they were kidnapped? In 1975, Floyd kidnapped Suzanne Marie Sevakis and her siblings. He dropped off two siblings at a children’s home but unknown to many, there was also an infant, Phillip, that Floyd kidnapped. The boy was later presumed dead by Sandra Brandenburg after she failed to find him. In 2019, a mystery man claimed to be Sevakis’ younger brother. It turned out to be Philip, who found out his true identity via DNA testing. According to Forensic Magazine , he was privately adopted at only six weeks old in 1974 by a couple named Mary and Bob Patterson. He now goes by the name of Phillip Steven Patterson.

Suzanne was the child of Clifford Sevakis. The two sisters were then found in a local church and raised by Sandra with her new husband in Virginia. Both Allison and Amy Sevakis are now in their fifties and are said to live in Virginia.
