Her sister, Jourdin Pauline, described Mooney as “the most amazing girl ever” who was “loving and so kind to everyone”. Pauline also said that she felt like she was in a “bad dream” and vowed to “get justice” for her sister. She added that whoever killed Mooney also stole her belongings, such as her iPhone and her MacBook, and tried to sell them online.
Mooney was a resident of Skye at Bunker Hill Apartments, a high-rise building near downtown LA. Some of her neighbours expressed shock and fear over the incident. Kristin Verduin, who lives down the hall from Mooney’s apartment, said “It is scary… I’m just right down the hall”.
