Content warning: This story discusses homicidal violence.

Authorities have announced a major update in the killing of Maleesa Mooney.

Five months after the model was found dead inside of a refrigerator at her Los Angeles apartment, officials have a suspect in the tragic case.

Magnus Daniel Humphrey, a 41-year-old Minnesota resident, was taken into custody at his home on an “unrelated federal warrant,” according to a Feb. 21 press release from the Los Angeles Police Department. 

“Humphrey is on federal probation for narcotics offenses,” authorities stated, adding that the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has filed murder charges against him. “Humphrey waived extradition and will be transported back to Los Angeles to face charges.”

According to Los Angeles Supreme Court records viewed by E! News, Humphrey has been charged with felony murder, specifically murder with torture, and felony torture.

The arrest comes after a months-long investigation into the death of Mooney, whose body was found by officers during a Sept. 12 welfare check. 

Days later, Mooney’s cousin Bailey Babb told local outlet KTLA that family members grew concerned for the 31-year-old when she suddenly stopped all communication with them.
