The story of a North Carolina fugitive who kept his criminal past a secret from his beloved wife of 35 years was told on photographer Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York Instagram photoblog and has captured the hearts of scores of readers, including Jennifer Garner.
In a series of posts published on Wednesday, which has since gone viral, Cheryl Love recalls how one day, the FBI raided the home she shared with her husband, Bobby Love, and arrested him. He opened up about his criminal past, confessing to her that his real name was Walter Miller.
"Holy nuts," Garner commented.
"Cheryl must be gobsmacked," Garner commented.
He recalled getting to New York City in 1977 and obtaining a fake birth certificate and social security card. He then obtained a driver's license with his new name and got a job working at a hospital cafeteria. There, he met Cheryl.
