Despite that, posts to social media indicate the couple never grappled with Athena's death.

Just three days after her murder, Dec. 29, Alysia took to her Instagram to show off her manicure.

On Dec. 30, she posted her photo at a hair salon, ahead of her husband's work party where they are both seen smiling for the camera. Also from that night, a picture showed Adams posed for a silly picture atop a buffalo statue.

Then on New Year’s Eve, Alysia shared a quote that read "I love New Year’s...this feeling of starting over again."

On Jan. 1, in another posted picture, Alysia wrote “2022 was a hell of a year so ready to make 2023 mine."

On Jan. 3, she said, "One thing I realized is that everything always ends up working out. "

Then on Jan. 6, the day investigators believed Athena's sister had been left alone,

Alysia posted pictures taken on a date with a new boyfriend that read "best night with the man of dreams." 

She went on and said, "Can't wait to build the best life with you."

In a statement to News 9, the man pictured on the date with Alysia said as a father, his heart goes out to Athena and that he hopes justice will be served.
