Last week, two models were found dead in their luxury apartment in Los Angeles. According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), 31-year-old model Maleesa Mooney was found dead in her Downtown LA apartment on September 12. Two days earlier, on September 10, authorities found 32-year-old Nicole Coates dead in her apartment, less than a mile away, the Independent reports.
Mooney was found dead by authorities in his luxury apartment in Bunker Hill after his family could not reach him. The Los Angeles Police Department has launched a murder investigation into his death and is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the person or people responsible for his death. Just two days earlier, officers had arrived at Coates’ home around 10 a.m. to investigate, but no one responded.
However, after two hours someone called and informed about the presence of a dead body at home. His death is not being investigated as a homicide; Coates’ family members believe it was a murder. “I believe it was murder, I really do,” said Stevens, Coates’ aunt. One of his legs was in the air in a kicking posture. “This is not a man who lay down in his bed and died”,
“This is ridiculous and I want some answers because my daughter is gone,” Sharon Coates, her mother, told KTLA. And this is not fair. I want everyone to find out who did this to her.” Police are also working to determine if the two incidents are related, but no connection has been confirmed yet in these cases. .
Meanwhile, the families of both believe that there may be some connection between the deaths. They are also worried that a serial killer may be looking for his next target. Coates’ cousin, Sheniya Mason, told ABC 7, “We just want to know what happened… It doesn’t seem right… Is there any connection between these two women? They were both in almost the same area… We need to make sure it’s not something else because it just didn’t seem right.
A GoFundMe page was created to help Nicole Coates’ family with funeral expenses.
