Duley’s fiance of seven years, Mike McFadden, spoke to The Frederick News-Post on Saturday from their home in Williamsport and provided a statement on her behalf.
“Jean is currently at an undisclosed location,” McFadden said.
Duley had numerous meetings with the FBI in the past month, McFadden said, but he declined to provide specific information about those meetings.
He said Ivins had threatened Duley’s life.
Court documents state that Ivins had made “homicidal threats, actions, plans, threats and actions towards therapist.”
Duley, a social worker, led counseling sessions attended by Ivins.
The story of Ivins’ death and investigation by the FBI broke early Friday. Since then, McFadden said, Duley has been hounded by the national press.
Someone broke into her car Friday night, McFadden said, though no police report was filed. “Nothing was taken,” he said, “but everything was jumbled up.”
Duley told the court she had been subpoenaed to testify before a federal grand jury Friday. She was reluctant to become involved in the FBI’s investigation of Ivins, McFadden said. “She had to quit her job and is now unable to work, and we have spent our savings on attorneys.”
This report raises a number of interesting questions. Why did she have to quit her job? Why is she unable to work? Ivins is deceased and no threat, if he ever was a threat. Was she instructed to hide out by federal employees?
