And, to be fair, it appeared as though Macke had at least tried to find some childcare for her kids before she left for Europe. “Apparently she had talked to a couple of family members that, earlier on, had some conflicts watching the children during that time-frame,” Officer Aswegan revealed.
And yet, as Macke’s German jaunt drew closer, she did not tell anyone that she had been unable to find someone to watch her four little ones. “She gave [family members] the indication [that] she had it taken care of,” Aswegan said. But once Macke had departed, it would not take long for appalled people to realize that this was far from the case.
