“I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him. He never said anything to me, or took any action that I was aware of, that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen. A little more than two weeks ago, Stephen said he found a cheap ticket for me to the Philippines and that he wanted me to take a trip to see my family,” Matt said on Marilou’s behalf.

“Like all Filipinos abroad, I was excited to go home and see family and friends. While there, he wired me money which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family. I was grateful, but honestly I was worried that first, the unexpected trip home and then the money, was a way of breaking up with me. It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone.”
