David Woolley married Christine Brown in October 2023.

In November 2019, Karen's daughter, Dawna Ray Langford, 43, and her kids, Trevor Harvey, 11, and Rogan Jay, 2, were murdered in a massacre in Mexico that left three American women and six children dead. All of the victims had been living in a small, Mormon community and had allegedly been traveling to a wedding at the time of their deaths.

Authorities later confirmed the incident occurred when a cartel gang mistook their vehicles as ones that belonged to a rival cartel.

Dawna's son Devin survived the shootout and his father, who is also named David [Langford], later told ABC News that his son and the other kids who made it through the horrible tragedy were "living miracles."

"How many bullet holes were fired into that vehicle … at that horrific scene and how many children were involved," he said at the time. "It's amazing... It's beyond amazing that they survived."
