Family members fear the worst after a woman who moved to Los Angeles a year ago to pursue a modeling career vanished under suspicious circumstances.
Ana Braga, 24, of the Mid-Wilshire district, was last heard from by telephone on Jan. 29, her mother Delma Felix, who lives in Brazil, said through an interpreter.
The woman’s car has since been found in Oklahoma, and a search warrant issued by investigators there references a video obtained by detectives that depicts a bloody female lying face down, with a belt and an electric cord wrapped around her neck.
Kimberly Cheng reports for the KTLA 5 News on Feb. 21, 2020.
Correction: This post has been updated to correct Felix’s last name.
