Who Is Sandra Willett Third Husband, Franklin Floyd?
Franklin Delano Floyd, a fugitive, went by the name Brandon Cleo Williams when he met Sandra in 1974. They reportedly met at a North Carolina truck stop.
In the Netflix show, Sandra revealed that she was struggling with PTSD after a tornado had hit the trailer where she lived with her children when she met Floyd. He had promised to “take care of [her] and [her] children”, but had started to do “scary things”, such as carrying a knife with him at all times and telling Willett: “You think you’re gonna leave me? That’s not happening”.
Other sources claimed that Sandra told Brandon AKA Franklin, that state got hold of her three children and he offered to marry to her so that she could get her children back. Sandra was looking for a fresh start and they married and moved to Texas.
They were struggling financially and Sandra wrote a bad check while buying diapers. This put her behind bars for 30 days. She felt comfortable leaving her children with her husband, but when she came out, the children vanished.

Sandra found Amy and Allison at a Catholic children’s home, but Suzanne and Phillip were missing.
Franklin had an elaborate criminal history that involved several abductions, molestation, robbery, and assault charges on his name. In 1962, he was convicted on charges of kidnapping a 4-year-old girl and child molestation and was sentenced to serve 10 to 20 years in prison.
However, he escaped less than one year later and carried out a robbery at a branch of the Citizens & Southern National Bank in Macon, Georgia. In January 1973, he attempted to grope a woman and sexually assault her. He was arrested but made bail and went on the run, failing to show up to court on June 11, 1973.
In addition to that, Franklin was also accused of murdering Suzanne’s son Michael Hughes and Cheryl Ann Commesso, a former co-worker of Suzanne. Photographic evidence left by Floyd in a stolen car showed evidence of Cheryl, 18, badly beaten and bound.
He was arrested for the 1989 murder of Commesso. In 2002, he was found guilty and was sentenced to death.
Now, Franklin is currently on death row at the Union Correctional Institution in Florida. He is 79 years old. As for Suzanne’s son Michael, investigative journalist Matt Birkbeck shared, “Floyd felt the pressure and he just ran out of patience.
