The brother of the murdered flight attendant spoke out just a short time ago about the shocking news that police believe her daughter’s boyfriend is responsible for her disappearance and death.

The body of DeCarol Deloney, 54, was discovered in the trunk of her car in Gary, Indiana, on Monday.

Damarius Wren, 18, is now facing murder charges.

Police say when Deloney returned to her Crown Point, Indiana, home from a work trip July 3, she was attacked by her daughter’s new boyfriend. Apparently Deloney did not approve of the relationship with her daughter, 17, or want him in the house.

Police say Wren put a pillowcase over her head, stabbed her multiple times and beat her head on the concrete floor. According to police, Wren had two friends help him carry the body to Deloney’s red Toyota.

Deloney’s younger brother Todd says he didn’t trust or like the teen accused in the brutal killing of his sister.

“We didn’t know him. DeCarol did not approve with his being with [her daughter],” Todd Deloney said. “We have no direct ill will toward anyone; we only ask that justice be served.”

He said his family is using faith to get through this tragedy.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and others could face charges in the killing.
