MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The brother of Zina Daniel spoke with reporters on Friday afternoon, March 1st in the wake of the release of the Azana Salon and Spa police reports.

At a news conference, Elvin Daniel said the last few months have been extremely difficult for his family as they cope with their loss. But he says they are a close family -- and will get through it together.

Daniel says he did not know about threats Radcliffe Haughton made against his sister's life. If he had, he says he would have taken action.

Daniel hopes if there's anything we can learn from this story, it's that people need to speak out if they worry someone is going through domestic violence -- especially if a life is at risk.

"To family members of victims, please educate yourself, look for signs," said Elvin Daniel.

Daniel also wants to close loopholes in gun laws that allowed someone like Haughton to get his hands on a gun. He wants a law passed that requires abusers to wear GPS tracking devices.

"My message is clear, I want to prevent this from happening again I repeat this I want to prevent this from happening again. I want to save lives," said Elvin Daniel.

Daniel also thanked the Brookfield Police Department and said he understood why the final police report was made public.

"The BF police department followed the law in order to be transparent to the public and I support that," said Elvin Daniel.

The owner of Azana Salon and Spa, Tami Gemmel, declined to comment on the release of the police documents. She says only that it is causing her and her employees a high level of anxiety and stress.
