However, Bryan Kaemmerer, who represents Kaylee’s family, was forced to retract the claims made in his earlier statement, admitting: “It appears that social media posts that were made from an account bearing the name of the accused do not appear to be legitimate. in light of additional details that have emerged regarding the timing of the defendant’s arrest, the defendant’s lack of access to her phone after being detained, and metadata showing precisely when these posts were first published.

At the time, he added that Kaylee is recovering but “tends to repeat the same short phrases over and over again” and that he doesn’t know why she’s in the hospital.

DeClue’s parents reportedly told local media that she “wants to apologize” to Kaylee.

They have been visiting DeClue while she remains in juvenile custody and say police have followed up on social media messages that allegedly include threats toward the teen.

Their statement said Kaylee’s family was “heartened” after DeClue’s parents said she wanted to apologize for her actions.

“While these statements do not change the family’s position that it is appropriate for the defendant to be tried as an adult, it is encouraging that the defendant appears to be remorseful for what occurred during these unfortunate events,” he added.

‘The family is grateful that the accused apparently did not post these totally unpleasant messages.

“However, this does not change the fact that the family firmly believes that there is more than enough evidence for the defendant to be tried as an adult.”

DailyMail.com revealed that DeClue’s family said “cruel” people got their fundraiser for legal fees canceled and that the 15-year-old is the real victim.

During a hearing in St Louis County Court in early April, officials set a date for DeClue’s certification hearing of May 10, which will decide whether she is tried as an adult on charges of first-degree felony assault.

Both sets of parents attended the hearing, and the judge informed DeClue’s parents, Ronald, who came to court in a wheelchair, and Conseula, that they have the right to an attorney just like their daughter.

Both declined to comment when approached by DailyMail.com, but DeClue’s attorney, Gregory Smith, added that she was “doing well” despite being detained.

“She’s a smart girl,” Smith said. “We are doing everything we can to protect her, but she knows the law well.”

Judge Dodson ordered both families to be escorted out of the courtroom separately, which he said was standard practice in his courtroom. A pretrial management hearing will also be held on May 1, nine days before the certification hearing.

DeClue’s family, who confirmed her name publicly in a statement to “address misconceptions” surrounding her arrest, launched a fundraiser to raise $150,000 to help her with her legal fees after she was charged with felony assault.
