"I presume they are making that wild guess because I am the same age as the woman is reported to be in the stories about that case. "This is completely unwarranted and wholly unacceptable. "Neither Danny nor myself have been arrested, nor do we have anything to do with the reported case, whatsoever. We do not know anything about it. "This is hugely upsetting for so many reasons. Please share and thanks for taking note of this."
