Girl in the Picture


Girl in the Picture is the distressing story of a man who was abandoned to a children's home where he was beaten and raped who then went on to abduct and abuse children.

Girl in the Picture begins with the death in Oklahoma of a 20 year old woman. Her 2 year old son, Michael, is taken into foster care, and her husband, Clarence Hughes, is under suspicion.

The dead woman is identified as Tonya Hughes, but when Tonya Hughes' mother is called, she says her daughter died at 18months of age.

After 4 years in foster care, Michael Hughes is kidnapped by Clarence Hughes and disappears.

It is decades before the real identity of the dead woman is uncovered.
