Charles Byrd was the son of James Norman Byrd and Thelma R. Burdette. James Norman Byrd and Thelma married in Tampa, Hillsborough County, Florida on 3 September 1934 and divorced in Polk County, Florida in 1937. They had one son, Charles Byrd, born on 5 June 1936. Thelma next married James Garrett Calhoun on 9 December 1937 in Tampa, Florida. Charles Byrd was raised as Charles Garrett Calhoun. I believe you are referring to the murder of Harold F. Whidden by Charles Calhoun, 15, which occurred in El Portal (North Miami). A 4-page illustrated article on this case was printed in the June 1952 issue of "Inside Detective", pp. 28, 29, 47, and 48. Charles died in Leon county, Florida on July 11, 1968 and is buried in Roselawn Cemetery, Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida.
