Maleesa Mooney, who was 31 years old, was allegedly pregnant when she died. She died from “homicidal violence.”
Two models’ bodies were found in a fancy apartment in Los Angeles, and Mooney was one of them. This led to fears that they may have been killed.
Since then, the LA County Medical Examiner’s Office has changed the original “deferred” cause of her death to “homicidal violence,” which is now called “Cause A.”
As well, “other significant conditions” were named in the final report.
Jourdin Pauline, Mooney’s sister, says that the cause of death was probably marked as “deferred” because she was badly beaten, which makes it hard to figure out the exact cause of death.
Pauline told everyone that her sister was two months pregnant when she died and really wanted to have a baby.
She told KTLA, “It hurts me to think about what my sister went through because I can’t picture it.”
On September 12, Mooney’s body was found in her apartment on South Figueroa Street. Two days earlier, on September 10, 32-year-old model Nichole Coats’ body was found in her apartment on South Grand Avenue. The death of Coats is not thought to be murder.
Police say there is no proof that the two deaths are connected, even though the victims had similar jobs and lived close to each other.
The investigation is still going on, but so far Mooney’s family has only gotten a small amount of information. No one has been arrested.
Pauline told the news source, “It’s really so stressful.” “Since we don’t know what happened, I have a million different ideas about what could have happened.”
She said she is still angry about having to wait so long for information.
She told KTLA, “This person is still out there, and the police aren’t telling us anything.” “What’s taking so long?” What did they see? Could you give it to us? Possible suspects? video surveillance that you do have? Tell us something or show it to us so we can watch out for it.
Nichole Coats’ mother, Sharon Coats, was angry with the cops on Thursday for not looking into her daughter’s death as a murder and ruling out foul play.
Sharon Coats couldn’t believe the Medical Examiner’s Office when they said Nichole had been dead for three to five days before her body was found. Two days before, she had seen her daughter living.
“They don’t seem to care. I’m not going to let this case go to sleep. “I will keep saying what I think about what happened,” she said.
Investigators haven’t told Coats’ family anything new since she died.
