    Full name for the parents are Laurence Wesley Thomaz, 58, and Katie “Peachie” M. Wimbush-Polk, 57. The mother appears to have been married a few times, so this is her most recent surname, though it includes her maiden name.

    I cannot find, however, find any information about either’s birthplace or parents. Both are veterans of the United States Air Force and thus have lived all over the country and abroad.
