The family of Clyde Lee Conrad, accused American spy in West Germany, is going through "an unbelievable nightmare," Conrad's brother says.
Darell Robert Conrad, the brother who lives in Boca Raton, Fla., said the FBI has been to the house of his sister, Karen Henschen, in Alliance to question her and their parents and that he is expecting them to show up at his door soon. He said the family has "feelings of sadness, disbelief, anger, shame and guilt" about the accusations that Conrad had sold military secrets to Hungary for large sums of money."I was proud of his accomplishments (in the military) and he did real good. Obviously he did too good," Conrad said. "I condemn it (the spying). But as far as being a brother, he was all right."
In Alliance, near Sebring, where the accused spy grew up, Conrad's brother-in-law, Mark Henschen, said, "It's shocking is all I can say. I had no idea this could happen. Everybody's upset."
