Reality Star Loredana Nesci Found Dead, Autopsy Pending

There are still more questions than answers when it comes to the sudden death of SundanceTV's Loredana Nesci of the show Loredana, Esq. Nesci's boyfriend Robert Reagan remains in custody as a suspect in her killing.

According to the Inquisitr, it was Reagan who called police to the home he shared with Nesci to report the crime. Soon after, he was in custody. Loredana and Robert had been arguing, according to Variety, but it is still not known whether she was shot or stabbed.

In the past, her reality show, which ran for six episodes, showed the couple "bickering" over child care and home renovations. Redondo Beach police Sgt. Fabian Saucedo said Nesci was 47 at the time of her death, and that currently, Reagan is the only suspect.

"It was kind of weird actually. He didn't say anything. It's one of those things we call an unknown trouble call," Saucedo said Thursday. "It was very vague, like 'What's going on?'"

"He gave them details of what may have occurred, and as a result, [the officers] decided they better go in and check the welfare. That's where they found the body," Saucedo said.

According to the Daily Breeze, Nesci's show featured her as " a sexy, tough-as-nails defense attorney representing clients that include a medical marijuana growing operation and a nudist couple who wanted to get married naked in front of Los Angeles City Hall."

Friends said Reagan was a former model and avid environmentalist who was controlling and jealous. Nesci was the breadwinner, while Reagan stayed home and cared for their son Rocco. Close friend Laura Riffel said there was tension in the couple's relationship, but no open aggression.

"Loredana was just not somebody to go quietly where you wanted her to go," Riffel said. "She was a strong person as a police officer and attorney. She had the best hopes for their relationship. She wanted things to be happy and be good. She didn't need a constant second-guessing of her calls and scheduling; he just needed to relax."

Other friends and family are equally shocked, including close friend Toni Moorhead, who is remembering Nesci as a wonderful mother.

"In school, he was learning how to write, and he wrote, 'I love my mommy because she hugs me every day.' That's the kind of relationship they had," Moorhead said. "That's what I want people to know. First and foremost, she was the mother of a 5-year-old — a little boy that has lost his mother. I just — I don't understand what happened."
