Loredana Nesci, star of the SundanceTV’s reality series Loredana, Esq., was found dead in her home Wednesday in what police are ruling a homicide.
The 47-year-old attorney was discovered after her boyfriend Robert Reagan, 51, called police to their Redondo Beach, Calif. home early Wednesday morning, according to the Los Angeles Times. Reagan was arrested on suspicion of murder and his being held on $1 million bail.
Nesci and Reagan have a young son who was not home when police arrived, Saucedo told the L.A. Times.
Nesci was known as the “Legal Diva” — a nickname she adopted from a newspaper profile about her. She began her career as a Los Angeles Police officer before attending law school at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., according to her website. She later returned to California where she worked as an attorney, a radio host, and a TV personality. Loredana, Esq. aired in 2014.
Nesci was active on Instagram, posting pictures of her family, her pets, New York Yankees games, and her personal fitness endeavors.
