Two US models found dead in luxury apartments in Los Angeles just 2 days apart
Los Angeles/IBNS: Two models have been found dead in their luxury apartments in the US city of Los Angeles within the last week, the Independent reported.
One of the victims has been identified as 31-year-old model Maleesa Mooney, who was found dead in her downtown LA apartment on September 12, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said.
On September 10, authorities found 32-year-old Nichole Coats dead in her apartment, less than a mile away.
Mooney was found dead in her luxury apartment in Bunker Hill by officers conducting a welfare check after her family couldn't reach her.
The Los Angeles Police Department has begun a murder investigation into her death and is seeking assistance from the public in identifying the person or people responsible for her death.
Just two days before, officers had responded to Coats' home to perform a welfare check around 10 a.m., but no one responded.
Two hours later, someone called to report a dead body at the home. Her death is not being investigated as a homicide, however, Coats' family members believe it was a murder.
The cops are now working to determine if the two incidents are related, but have not confirmed any connection thus far.
Meanwhile, both their families believe that there might be a link between the deaths. They're also concerned a serial killer may be looking for their next target.
