Richards said he stayed, and his wife took the envelopes to the department, but then, “it got bad.” He said Daily asked him to check light bulbs for spyware and was walking around with a baseball bat convinced someone was trying to kill her.
Richards said he first noticed Daily’s unusual behavior Thursday. He said she called him and asked him to call the police because someone was trying to kill her and spyware had been planted in her granddaughter’s shoes. He said Daily’s neighbor called him Friday reporting that Daily said she couldn’t raise the girl anymore. He said he told Daily to get a motel room and rest and that he would take the girl.
