Many online postings state that the father shot and killed himself before he could be arrainged.  Armed with this, and the useful tool that a name like "Clark Wiley" is quite rare, I went looking for his death entry and found it.  In trying to find an obit, I found much more.
 
  
 
An article in the ''Valley News'' of Van Nuys, California, Dec 17, 1970, (page 23C "Felony Charge Dismissed in Wiley Child Abuse Case") gives her name as "Susan".  It repeats her parents names as above and adds that she had a brother or half-brother named John Wiley, calling him "Clark's son".  In this same article, Irene is called "of Alhambra, California", although their home is described as being "in Arcadia".  In 1970, in the Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia. Susan "Genie" was taken into protective custody.
