    I wish Mr. McCloud knew that he had another son by Hazel Marcella Barry. I sent him a letter before he died, telling him that his son, Robert Lee, was born on August 3, 1968, in Florida. When I saw that he had a son named Bobby Lee, I can only assume that he was never told about his first son because he was in prison. Any family who wants to reach out, please use my email. Robert Mc Cloud Sr.’s son is now 54, having been taken into foster care and adopted when he was 5. He’s living in Pennsylvania and I’m his wife.

    I see that they will not publish my email, but if any of Mr. McCloud’s family wants to contact me about his first son, I am on Facebook. I have researched my husband’s biological parents for years, and I am quite sure that the information I have is true. I know that Hazel and Robert were together at the time of his crime and that she testified against him. She was pregnant at that time, and then named her son after his father.
