Reality star and defense lawyer Loredana Nesci has died in Los Angeles in what is being reported as a homicide.
Loredana Nesci, star of the Sundance Channel’s Loredana, Esq., was found dead in her Los Angeles home on July 22.
Her partner, Robert Reagan, reportedly called police at 7:20 a.m. PT. Officers from the Redondo Beach Police Department responded and found a deceased woman in the Redondo Beach residence. The police suspect foul play and have arrested Robert Reagan, 51, on suspicion of murder.
A neighbor said his wife, who was home at the time of the incident, didn’t hear any loud noises or fighting coming from Loredana Nesci and Robert Reagan’s home, and he had never noticed anything “wrong or weird” with the couple in the past.
Loredana Nesci started her career as a Los Angeles police officer – at one point, she was involved in a shoot-out at a bank in North Hollywood – before leaving the LAPD to attend law school at Quinnnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut.
She later joined two Connecticut practices, Spinella & Associates and Cadden, Ivers & Ivers, and was dubbed “The Legal Diva” by the Connecticut Law Tribune, a name that stuck when she moved back to California in 2004.
In 2008, Loredana Nesci began hosting her own radio show on KCAA 1050 AM. Her Sundance show kicked off in 2013, and she had also contributed on The View. At the time of her death, her website noted that Loredana, Esq. was still airing, and she was slated to make more TV appearances in 2015.

Loredana Nesci’s last Instagram post, just 24 hours ago, was of her giving Louie a sweet kiss and included the hashtags “luckydiva,” “dogkisses” and “girlsbestfriend”.
