Danielle Jelinek remains missing while her estranged boyfriend is now being called a person of interest in her disappearance. The several media reports on this case have painted a suspicious portrait of the "estranged boyfriend" of the missing woman, but now his family is speaking out with a completely different side to the story, and what his loved ones have to say is completely different from what's being shown in the media.
Aaron Schnagel's cousin claims that he wouldn't have hurt Daniel, that he is 'not capable' of hurting her. She claims that the media is making Aaron look like a monster when he isn't.
"He is probably one of the most caring, compassionate people you will ever meet in your life," said Theresa Langevin.
However, Aaron Schnagel (also reported as Schnagl) has been accused of abusing Danielle Jelinek, even going as far as choking her and bruising her face -- giving her two black eyes and fat lips. If a man is capable of physically abusing the woman he claims to love, then he is most certainly capable of harming her beyond the abuse to the point of even death. In fact, domestic violence is one of the leading causes of death in women.
If Aaron Schnagel didn't harm Danielle, then what happened to her? It's already been reported that his story has changed more than once, and there are even two different witnesses giving two different stories that he's allegedly given. One person claims that he called them and said that Danielle overdosed. Another person said that she was texted by Aaron, and that he said Danielle wandered off on foot. So which is it?
