Regarding the murder for hire charges, Danforth claims she didn’t know why she was being arrested. She told a TV station that she was returning from a trip to Hawaii and was detained by US Marshalls, saying “I don’t really know, precisely… Really early in the morning, I was mainly just tired from my flight, then shocked, but I didn’t want to freak out.” She then said she didn’t know what would happen next, saying “I would just say more, stand-by, and see what happens, not see what happens cause that sounds terrible… but not necessarily follow along with me, but follow along with me and see how it goes.”
