An investigation into how the shooting occurred is currently under investigation but, on January 4, police arrested 41-year-old Cedric Lamont Berry in connection to the Minneapolis death of Monique Baugh, 28. Baugh, who was found lying in an alleyway with gunshot wounds when police arrived on the scene, died not long after being rushed to a nearby hospital. She left behind two daughters, aged one and three.
Shortly after news of Baugh’s death broke, Kris Lindahl Real Estate released a statement saying the company was “devastated” by her family’s loss and launched a GoFundMe page for people to support Baugh’s family. The agency also offered to match the first $10,000 raised with an equal amount — as of Monday, $15,000 has been donated.

“Monique was a beautiful person who was kind and compassionate,” reads the GoFundMe page. “She was a loving mother who always put her daughters first. As all who knew Monique grieve her loss, we want to do what we can to help her daughters.”
Over the past few days, donations have been flowing in from Baugh’s Kris Lindahl colleagues, other agents across the country and friends and family members.
“Monique and I started at Kris Lindahl Real Estate at the same time,” fellow agent Shari Gesche wrote on the fundraising page. “She had a contagious smile, was beautiful inside and out. Immediately we bonded. I know she loved Real Estate. She loved her babies they meant the world to her.”
