When Solo was seven, her father picked her up and her brother Marcus to go to a baseball game in the nearby city of Yakima, but he ended up driving for three hours west of Seattle, where they stayed for several days. in a hotel. He only described what vacation looked like at first, but soon realized it wasn’t. Later, police found them on a downtown bank and arrested Jeffrey for alleged kidnapping.

“We bought our 60-acres so our dogs have space to run and live their most full lives,” Solo shared.
Though Solo did not further elaborate on the incident, she said, “as animal lovers we are struggling to make sense of anyone using their right to own guns to shoot pets of any kind.”
“We have had pets come onto our property and always helped them get home safe,” she added.
Conan’s passing comes weeks after Solo and Stevens announced they became parents to twins. They have been married since 2012.
