In an unverified report originating from News Seven in Australia and published by CNN, a sister of Danley stated the following,
“She was sent away. She was sent away so that she will be not there to interfere with what he’s planning.
In that sense, I thank him for sparing my sister’s life.
She didn’t even know that she was going to the Philippines, until Steve said, ‘Marilou, I found you a cheap ticket to the Philippine”.
Danley’s alleged sibling stated that she privately expressed her shock over the incident.
