Clark Wiley married Dorothy Irene Oglesby sometime before 1948 and probably in California, possibly in Los Angeles County where her parents were living at that time.  Clark and Irene had four children, all born in Los Angeles County, California but two died young.  The eldest child has been reported to have died due to Clark's neglect and the second child's death "choking on his own mucus" is considered by some suspicious.

(see [http://abcnews.go.com/US/popup?id=4870528&contentIndex=1&page=7&start=false here]) "He became enraged when the teen arrested for his mother's death was not prosecuted" (see [http://abcnews.go.com/US/popup?id=4870528&contentIndex=1&page=10&start=false here])

Clark Wiley has been described as some sort of recluse.  He was the main power in the home, his wife Dorothy being nearly blind was totally dependent on him, and frightened of him.  Their son John has stated that Clark often sat with a gun in his lap.  Clark and Dorothy were the parents of Susan Wiley called "Genie" in popular books and scientific papers about her case.

Clark and Dorothy were arrested once the authorities found that Susan had been kept virtually isolated from normal human contact her entire life of thirteen years.  Susan still wore diapers, couldn't talk, and was fed a substandard diet which stunted her growth.  It has been reported that when found she weighed 59 pounds and was the size of a 7 to 8 year old.  From years of confinement, her muscles had not developed normally, which caused her to walk in a peculiar way.  The family were described as "strange people who kept to themselves."

Clark and Dorothy were arrested once the authorities found that Susan had been kept virtually isolated from normal human contact almost her entire life of thirteen years.  Susan still wore diapers, couldn't talk, and was fed a substandard diet which stunted her growth.  It has been reported that when found she weighed 59 pounds and was the size of a 7 to 8 year old.  From years of confinement, her muscles had not developed normally, which caused her to walk in a peculiar way.  The family were described as "strange people who kept to themselves."
  
 
Just moments before his scheduled arraignment, with his wife Dorothy, on Felony Child Abuse charges, Clark Wiley shot himself in the head on 20 Nov 1970, using a 38-revolver.  His body was found in their home, by their son John aged 18, who was waiting outside to drive Clark to the courthouse.  Clark's death was handled as a suicide, the revolver and a brief note "John will understand" he had left, were both found nearby.  Another note told his son John what shirt he wanted to wear for his funeral.
