The lead detective on Mooney’s case, David Marcinek, told KTLA that he has never investigated a case where the coroner listed “homicidal violence” as the cause of death, noting that the autopsy results are highly unusual.
Mooney was last seen on surveillance footage outside her apartment on Sept. 6. Her family grew concerned as they couldn’t reach her in the days that followed and called police to perform a welfare check, leading to the shocking discovery.
After her death, her family spoke out about their devastating loss.
“Never in a million years did I think I’d have to make this post and get justice for my one & only sister,” Mooney’s sister, Guyanese pop star Jourdin Pauline, wrote on Instagram Sept. 14. “My heart is crushed I can’t believe you won’t be here with us anymore.”
Authorities confirmed to E! News previously that they did not have an update in the case following the autopsy report. Detective Marcinek told KTLA that no arrests have been made at this time.
