This Woman Finds Out The Mystery That Is Her Husband After Forty Years Of Marriage

Not Your Typical Morning

It all started in one morning which happened in the month of January 2015. Cheryl happened to wake up first, leaving her husband who was still in his dreamland in their bed. She was already about to make a flavorsome breakfast for their family until she heard a knock coming from their front door. She was kind of expecting a neighbor or a family relative who suddenly came to visit them but the person who dropped by was the police.

“Crazy Lady”

Well, Cheryl did not feel bothered at all because the whole neighborhood knew that there was a “crazy lady” living near their house and the authorities had always kept an eye on her ever since – it was a routine for the police to go to the crazy lady’s house to check her current situation week by week. She thought that the cop standing in front of her was just about to go to the crazy lady and mistakenly knocked on their house.

Life-Changing

What bothered her was the fact that it was not only a single cop who was standing at their front door – there were twelve police officers. She had no clue what was about to happen at that time. All she knew was that her husband was peacefully asleep as she was shaking to death because of the nervousness she was feeling. What did they do?

Asking For His Name

The police officers who were standing in front of her were from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. They immediately went inside Bobby and Cheryl’s house and looked for the husband. As they were walking towards the couple’s room, Cheryl still had no clue what was happening. They opened the door and saw Bobby who just woke up. The uniformed officers asked for the man’s name who then uttered his full name “Bobby Love”.

Asking For His Name

Turns out that it was not Bobby’s real name because after hearing “Bobby Love”, the police officers repeated the question as they were asking for his real name. It took them some minutes to get Bobby to say his real name which he only whispered to the police – carefully enough not to let his wife hear it. The officers immediately put handcuffs on Bobby who saw his wife looking totally lost in everything that was happening. He briefly explained that something terrible happened in his past before he even met Cheryl.

Walter Miller

Bobby Love’s real name was Walter Miller. He was a young kid way back in the 1960s in his hometown, North Carolina. He used to live with his family who was composed of his parents, himself, and his seven siblings. It was revealed that they lived a poverty-stricken life before. It was really difficult for his parents to manage the family given the fact that there were eight children to raise. When Walter started to grow up and become more conscious of how things run around him, he did something not pleasing.

An 80’s Concert

There was a time when Walter Miller attended a concert by the famous American singer and songwriter, Sam Cooke. He performed some of his hit songs and when one of his dance music played, people went wild – they stood up from their designated seats and danced with full energy to the song. Even though the artist was feeling the vibe, he did not want the crowd to go uncontrollable. He did his best to tell his fans to go back to their seats.

Going Downhill

After some minutes, Walter got carried away and said some bad words directed to the stage in a kidding manner. However, the authorities present at the concert immediately went to him and had him arrested. They explained that the arrest was about his swearing. Walter did not know what to do but to go with the authorities and just explain that everything was simply a joke. Little did he know that he was going to face serious consequences because of his actions.

Years Of Petty Crimes

Walter Miller said that the record he got from swearing at Sam Cooke’s concert before was the first record he got his entire life. It was not his first and last record, though – it was followed by several crimes that he did. He admitted that he stole some confidential checks, wallets, and did more actions which were all against the law.

Juvenile Detention Center

A day came and he decided to steal something valuable located in his school’s band room. It seemed like his plan did not go well as he was caught by someone. The school ordered him to be immediately put under the supervision of a juvenile detention center. The things he experienced in that center were pretty serious enough to make him pay and reflect on all the crimes that he had done.

With everything that happened to him in the center, he told the story as if it was only a week ago when he got out of the place when in reality, years had passed already, and yet, he could not forget all of the sufferings he had been through. He shared all the things that he experienced in the juvenile detention center. He said that he was beaten up most of the time. The food was really bad, too. In short, he did not like any single thing from the detention center.

He also said that night time was the worst because he could hear the trains traveling outside making him miss all the things he could freely do outside the center. What he wished for every day was to get out of that detention center. When he thought that he could not take it anymore, he wanted to escape. All he needed was a well-constructed plan that would let him get out of the detention center smoothly.

A Daring Escape

First, he needed to know the path where the trains were going through – where it starts and where it ends. The escape was the only thing running on his mind every night before he slept. He was just looking for the right time when to escape. While waiting, he did his best to survive all the sufferings he was experiencing in the juvenile detention center.

First Disappearance

All he was waiting for was a free door with no one watching and guarding it. It felt like all the stars aligned for him because a night came and the guard watching the back door suddenly left to look for the clock to check the time. He immediately moved and got out through the back door. He quickly tracked the sound made by the trains and went in that direction.

Making His Way To The Tracks

He successfully reached the tracks. He had nothing to do but to ride on the trains to get away from the juvenile detention center. He just went on a journey and got off the train when it stopped. Where the train stopped was nowhere near his home in North Carolina, but at least he managed to escape from the detention center. He made it to Washington D.C.

Washington D.C

Lucky for him that he had a brother who moved to Washington D.C., he immediately went to his apartment and lived there. It seemed like he started a new life again – he enrolled himself in a high school near his brother’s apartment, he engaged in activities and sports like basketball. Everything was going great for him until he got influenced by the wrong circle of friends who made him go back to his old self – he began doing terrible things again.

Much Worse Crimes

That time, everything got worse because it turned out that his friends engaged in crimes way more serious and worse than the little violations he had done before. His friends were used to robbing banks but did not get caught because they always traveled to safer places right after where the law enforcements were not that strict such as Walter’s hometown, North Carolina.

He shared their routine of hanging out in some places right after robbing banks. He did not even bother in quitting because he loved all the money he was getting, plus the fact that they were never caught by authorities. But as he was telling the story during the present, it was evident that he regretted everything he did before, especially all of the crimes.

Getting Caught Again

Well, everything has to come to an end and so was their hobby of robbing banks. One night in the month of August 1971, they were robbing a bank, but little did they know that it had unique and smart security. The bank was built with a silent alarm that directly alarmed authorities. That was the second time Walter got caught doing a crime.

The police arrived immediately at the bank. Walter did his best to escape by running away, but an officer managed to stop him by shooting him. They put handcuffs on him as they were arresting him, together with his friends. They were brought to the nearest police station.

Sentenced For His Crimes

Walter and his friends were put into trial. They were all found guilty and were sentenced to jail for about 25 to 30 years. This was not the worst news Walter received that time, though – he also learned that his mother had just passed away. With all the consequences he was facing, it seemed like he already regretted every single crime he had done. He even promised himself to change for the better and start a new life again once he got out of jail.

Maximum-Security

Together with his lawyer, Walter tried a few times appealing to the court in order to at least lessen the years he was supposed to be in jail. Every appeal was unsuccessful, it seemed like it was the end of his world, but he managed to plot a plan. All he needed was to be transferred to a station with the lowest security.

He did his best to behave well in the prison where he was staying which had maximum security – he never got into a fight and he did not do anything against the policies. He really did well as a prisoner which led him to be transferred to a facility with a much lower level of security. The place gave him more freedom to do some recreational activities.

Things Were Changing

Walter was kind of enjoying the new place where he was transferred to the point that his plans to escape were slowly getting erased out of his mind. It was like a camp because people were allowed to do things they wanted, they were able to call families and friends through telephone, and the prisoners could also be visited by their loved ones. Everything was going great for Walter until something happened again.

Everything Went Downhill

In the new facility where he had been transferred to, Walter got the chance to have his own radio show which was one of the biggest dreams in his entire life. He engaged himself in the radio hosting activity in the facility and found joy in doing that. He was ready to settle and just patiently wait for his sentence of 25 to 30 years to end until one of the prisoners said some swear words to the captain. The captain only heard it and did not actually see who cursed at him. Unfortunately, Walter was mistakenly accused of using the foul language directed to the captain. This was the moment where bad things began to happen.

Too Many Negative Reports

The captain really took the swearing personally and did not give Walter the chance to defend himself. The captain wrote a bunch of false-negative reports regarding Walter’s behavior in the cell which caused him to be transferred back to the previous prison he came from – the one with the maximum security. Walter could not take it anymore and that was why he constructed a plan to escape.

A New Opportunity

Not only did he was sent back to the prison which had the maximum security, but he also got designated to one of the most difficult tasks a prisoner could have – cleaning up roads. He had to experience the inconvenience of waking up very early just to travel to the place where he and other prisoners would clean up a bunch of garbage.

He shared that he was very unfortunate to be assigned to such a task when winter was approaching – it was already freezing cold outside but he, together with other prisoners, still had to clean up all the garbage. He also said that people would harshly throw trash at him. Despite all the hardships he encountered from the task, he saw it as an opportunity to escape.

His Big Escape Plan

Walter was very careful as he developed a plan on how he could escape. He had everything well thought of and used some things to his advantage. He knew that every Tuesday, the guard who was supposed to accompany them from prison to the bus was the least strict among all other guards – he just let the prisoners walk by themselves. That was why he planned on performing the escape on a Tuesday.

Collecting The Necessary Information

He gained another information – the bus always stopped at a certain point and that place had a wooded area next to it. It was great information that played a huge part in his escape plan. He just waited for a few days in order to master his plan and omit all of the flaws it might have. On Monday night, everything was set. All he needed to do was execute the plan smoothly.

Everything Was Set

The next day came and he got all of his things out of his locker. He was nervous but he was determined to escape. He saw the lazy guard who he was already expecting and walked towards the bus which served as their service every day and brought them to the places they were tasked to clean. Would he succeed in escaping or would he fail and end up in jail with more charges?

Wailing Of The Sirens

He entered the bus and immediately took the seat nearest to the back door which was supposed to be used as an emergency exit. He was waiting for a certain place where the bus usually stopped. As the bus stopped, Walter quickly made an exit through the back door and ran towards the woods. He got out of his prison uniform and changed into his civilian clothes. He kept on running until the sirens of the police cars looking for him were already not audible.

The Death Of Walter Miller

His escape plan was a success. He stopped running when he noticed that the sirens of the police cars already stopped – he already got away. At that moment, he started asking people how to get into the nearest bus station and he even managed to borrow some money from strangers. He got into a bus which was going to New York City. He got the freedom he had always wanted.

The Birth Of Bobby Love

After all the awful things that had happened to him, he promised himself to start a new life. A woman took the seat beside him and tried to create a friendly conversation. She started by asking his name. Walter thought that he should start living a new life by having a new name, so he replied, “Bobby Love”.

Bobby Love

Bobby Love, formerly known as Walter Miller, started his new life in the great New York City in the month of November 1977. Thanks to the stranger who let him borrow some money, he managed to book for a motel room to stay in for a few days. He was very smart to have logical lies and reasons which led him to get himself a birth certificate, driver’s license, and a social security number. Of course, he ran out of money and had to sleep on the streets.

Needing Employment

With government-issued IDs and other licenses, Bobby managed to find himself a few jobs which paid him enough salary to feed him and to let him book an inexpensive hotel room to stay in for weeks. His “new life” started kind of great and even got better when he met someone who changed his life forever.

Bobby And Cheryl

Bobby Love got hired for a position in the cafeteria of the Baptist Medical Center. That was the place where he met his wife, Cheryl. He was head over heels in love with the woman. The only thing that got him having second thoughts was his past – escaping from prison. After a few days of thinking about it, he came up to a tough decision and asked Cheryl out. They had their first date watching Purple Rain and attending the Gladys Knight & The Pips concert together.

A Heart Of Gold

Everything about Cheryl was totally the contradicting version of himself and it was the reason why he fell in love with her. He explained that he never had the chance to meet someone like Cheryl before. She was so nice, sweet, and soft – she was perfect. He knew that he was already falling in love with her and he also knew that everything could be ruined in a snap once his past would be brought up again.

Building A Life Together

After a few years of dating, Bobby and Cheryl decided to get married on the 30th of March 1985. Cheryl got pregnant a few weeks after their wedding. They named their first child Jasmine and welcomed their second child, Jessica a couple of years after. They lived happily as a very joyful family who even got happier when they welcomed the twins Jordan and Justin into their lives 11 years after Jessica was born.

Devoted Family Man

Well, Bobby became true to his promise that he would change and start a new life after he got out of prison. He was a very great father to Jasmine, Jessica, Justin, and Jordan. He was a loving husband to his wife, Cheryl. He was very determined in achieving a successful life to the point that he managed to work two jobs. He also spent his free time by being an active member of the church. He was living a peaceful and happy life until the cops found him decades after the incident.

His Secret

Bobby loved his wife so much and sincerely did not want to keep any secrets from her, but he always had second thoughts every time he tried to tell her. He was scared that if he told her wife about it, she might leave him or worse, she might tell the police about his situation. Well, as the French dramatist Jean Racine said, “There are no secrets that time does not reveal”, Bobby’s little skeleton managed to get out of its closet.

Cheryl shared the moments when she and her friends would find Bobby’s actions towards people kind of weird. She said that there were times when random people would ask Bobby for some directions, he would look scared. She also said that Bobby was always uncomfortable when taking a picture. She shared other odd observations she had noticed about Bobby.

She even shared that every time they would have an argument, it seemed like Bobby would just give up and even cut himself off. A few weeks before the arrest happened, Cheryl remembered how their arguments ended up getting them to pray to the Lord, especially her because she could not kind of take it anymore. She felt that there was something wrong.

Everything Came Crashing Down

Decades already passed after the incident happened, that was why Bobby already felt safe and had the courage to go back to his hometown, North Carolina. One of his siblings passed away that attending his funeral was his only motive of coming back. He really believed that visiting North Carolina was the one who got him in trouble again. Maybe the cops had a report that he was coming home again or they saw his familiar face which got them searching for him again. On the other hand, Cheryl was hurt. She understood that her husband had reasons why he did not tell her about his secret, but the feeling of being lied to, for decades, really hurt her plus the fact that her husband got arrested in their own home and right in front of their kids.

Facing Grim Circumstances

After the arrest, he was immediately brought to Rikers Island which is home to New York City’s main jail complex. His stay there was only temporary as Bobby and the authorities waited for his deportation back to North Carolina. After almost five decades, Bobby was back in prison again. Despite the fact that his case already happened a long time ago, he would still face a very serious consequence. He also learned that he would be facing 10 years of imprisonment – the remaining number of years he was still supposed to serve before he escaped.

For Better Or Worse

Despite all the negative feelings Cheryl had felt after discovering her husband’s secret, her love for him never left. She visited him on Rikers Island and he was so emotional. He was very sorry and expected her wife to leave him, but what the wife replied left him out of words. She said that she loved him so much – that was why she married him. She said that she would stay by his side no matter what. Cheryl promised herself to do everything she could just to give her husband his freedom.

Being the good wife she had always been, Cheryl became true to her words and really did everything she could just to get her husband out of prison. She spoke to people she did not even expect speaking to, her entire life. She even sent sincere letters written by herself and her children to President Obama and the governor, begging them to help her husband. Cheryl was really brave doing tough things for the love of her life.

Addressing The Parole Board

The time came to know the decision of the parole board. For your information, a parole board is a panel of people who decide whether an offender should be released from prison on parole after serving at least a minimum portion of their sentence as prescribed by the sentencing judge. Call it a miracle or anything you want – the parole board decided to let Bobby Love free after one year of stay in prison. After all, what happened, what do you think would happen to his life – would his wife leave him or still stay by his side, for better or for worse?

Better Than Ever

After earning the freedom he had always wanted, Bobby was ready to live a new and better life with his wife and their children – yes, he had a talk with Cheryl and she forgave him. However, things had changed and it was for the better. Bobby already felt very comfortable interacting with other people – no more odd reactions. Bobby and Cheryl became more open to each other about personal stuff which was a very good take on their relationship as a married couple. After everything they had faced, the Love family had been stronger than ever.
