Los Angeles Real Estate Agent Found Dead: Mysterious Phone Activity Raises Questions

The family of a 31-year-old real estate agent in Los Angeles became worried when they couldn’t reach her, and their text messages to her turned green, which meant she hadn’t received them. Her name was Marissa Mooney.

Maleesa’s family hadn’t heard from her since last Thursday. They contacted the police to check on her. Her sister, Jourdin Pauline, said that Maleesa’s friends had been in her apartment, but they left, and Maleesa stayed.

The police sent an officer to Maleesa’s apartment on Sunday when her family first contacted them. However, the officer didn’t go inside; they just left a card at the door.

Jourdin said, “They didn’t go in, they just left a card. When we went to go check on her, the card was still there.”

On Tuesday, the text messages that hadn’t been received suddenly turned blue, indicating that someone had her belongings and was trying to sell them. This gave her family hope that she was okay.

The police didn’t return until the following Tuesday. The building’s maintenance department let them into Maleesa’s apartment, which was described as “flooded,” and they found her dead at around 4 p.m. However, it’s unclear how the apartment got flooded.

Maleesa Mooney’s death is being investigated as a homicide, according to Los Angeles Police Detective David Marcinek. Still, the Los Angeles Medical Examiner hasn’t determined her cause of death yet. Detective Marcinek couldn’t provide specific details about her injuries or whether a suspect had been identified at the time of the report.

Maleesa worked as a real estate agent, primarily with NestSeekers International, where she showed million-dollar homes. Her sister described her as an amazing, kind, sweet, funny, and smart person who loved cooking.

Her sister made an Instagram post with the hashtag #JUSTICEFORMALEESA, seeking answers and justice for her beloved sister. Residents of the Skye at Bunker Hill Apartments complex were shaken by the grim discovery of Maleesa’s death.
