Marla Massey was married to a Bionational Corporation agent named Patrick Massey and had a son with him in 2186. One day in 2192, her son came across an encrypted message that was for his father regarding a job he was to do. The boy showed the message to Marla who confronted her husband about the message. Patrick then snapped his son's neck, killing him in front of a horrified Marla. He then quickly killed Marla and used his connections with the local authorities to make it look like a burglary gone wrong. Marla and her son's remains were later cremated.
