Marco Aponte is facing charges of money laundering after Family Connections declared bankruptcy earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Louanne Aponte has fled the country.
"I understand she is in a foreign country, and they are trying to get her back here," said Turner.
Marco Aponte and Turner said they will speak about what happened with the money in question once the matter is resolved and that they apologize to the employees and families involved with the organization.
