Attorney Loredana Nesci, a former Los Angeles police officer and the star of SundanceTV’s Loredana, Esq. was shot to death Wednesday morning inside her Southern California home.
According to E! News, police sources said a “distraught male” placed an emergency phone call at the Legal Diva’s Redondo Beach, California home early Wednesday.
Redondo Beach police Officers discovered Nesci’s body when they arrived shortly after 7am, and told members of the media she had suffered a fatal gunshot wound.
Police have arrested Nesci’s boyfriend, Robert Reagan, in connection with her death, which is being investigated as a homicide.
“A resident of Redondo Beach, Robert Reagan, 51 years of age has been arrested in connection with this homicide,” police said in the statement.
Police also said Reagan was the “distraught male,” and he is being held on $1 million bail.
The couple have a five-year-old together, but he was not home at the time of the shooting.
Nesci, 47, had been dubbed “The Legal Diva.” She began working for the LAPD in 1996, and several years later began practicing law. In 2008, she began hosting her own radio show on KCAA 1050 AM.
Her reality series Loredana, Esq. premiered on SundanceTV in 2014 and documented both her personal and professional lives.
