CLEVELAND — Linda Meloni was 16 years old before she learned the identity of her father, one of the most notorious bank robbers in Cleveland history.

She discovered the secret her mother had kept from her by accident after she opened a letter addressed to “L. Ritenour.” She thought it was for her, but it was for her mother, Lora.
