In an interview with Fox News Digital, Maureen Francisco – who worked with Posey at her most recent pageant – shared that she was “in shock” when she heard the news.
“When I first saw the post that her mom posted about Kailia, 나는 충격을 받았다, I didn’t believe it. 처음에, I thought maybe her mother’s Facebook got hacked, so I had to wait. I realized it wasn’t going away, that this is actually real,” 프란시스코, who is the executive producer of Pageants Northwest, 말했다. “That’s when it really hit me like wow.”
