Twin Cities real estate mogul Kris Lindahl has launched a fundraiser for one of his agents, Monique Baugh, who was murdered in north Minneapolis on New Year's Eve.
The 28-year-old mother of two was found dead in an alleyway on Tuesday, prompting an outpouring of grief from all who knew her, and questions as to how such a thing could happen.
A 41-year-old man was arrested in connection with her death on Friday, and a search warrant affidavit has shed some more light on what authorities believe unfolded.
KARE 11 reports that Baugh was lured to a home in Maple Grove for a house showing that had been scheduled directly with her, not through her employer, the Kris Lindahl Real Estate group.
She is then believed to have been tied up, abducted, shot dead and then transported in a U-Haul truck to the alley in Minneapolis, where her body was left.
It's believed the suspect arrested in her killing was a rival drug dealer of her boyfriend, who was shot at their home on New Year's Eve, but survived his injuries.
The fundraiser created by Kris Lindahl Real Estate will be used to provide for Baugh's two young daughters, aged 1 and 3.
"The world lost someone amazing when Monique Baugh passed away on December 31st," the fundraiser reads. "Monique was a beautiful person who was kind and compassionate. She made an impact on everyone she met. She was very driven and a joy to be around."
"As all who knew Monique grieve her loss, we want to do what we can to help her daughters."
