(Finding Susan Wiley)
(Why this article?)

Like you, these details repeated over and over, on various websites, were not satisfying to me.  I wanted to know more.  What were her parent's names? Was her mother convicted? Did her father leave a suicide note?  What about her grandparents, what did they know or do?  Various postings online claim that her real name has been kept private.  I had thought that was because documents were sealed, but as you see shortly, I was wrong.  At the time she was found, all the details were reported widely, all across the country.  And now I'm going to tell you.

===The Trigger===
 +
On 6 Mar 2007, an anonymous editor on Wikipedia, added an newspaper article as an external link to the article on Genie, which identifies her as "Susan Wiley" [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Genie_%28feral_child%29&diff=113030190&oldid=111647057 here].  In their edit summary they cite "LA Times article, March 18, 1979 by Myrna Oliver."  In this same anonymous editors' next change [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Genie_%28feral_child%29&diff=next&oldid=113030190 here] they add the parents names "Irene and Clark Wiley" and for this cite a website http://www.mymultiplesclerosis.co.uk/misc/wild-child.html

Seeing this, I knew immediately something was fishy.  Not only were the names known at some time, but more could be discovered, if one were focused and determined.
