Second model found dead in downtown L.A. apartment
Loved ones are distraught after a young model was found dead inside her apartment in downtown Los Angeles, marking the second time a similar incident has occurred within a week.
Family members who discovered the body of Nichole Coats, 32, known as Nikki, inside her apartment are devastated and frustrated at the lack of answers and information coming from investigators.
“This is senseless and I want some answers because my daughter is gone,” Sharon said. “And it’s not fair. I want everybody to find out who did this to her. She shouldn’t be gone.”
“We need to know what happened,” said May Stevens, Nikki’s aunt. The last time anyone heard from Nikki, she told friends she was going out on a date on Friday, Sept. 8.
