Kim Kardashian lookalike Missy Hernandez's BF held for her murder, body still not found
'Based on the evidence and the length of time Missy has been gone, detectives have reason to believe she is dead,' police said
Missy Hernandez, a cheerful and social 30-year-old mother, gained prominence over her uncanny resemblance to Kim Kardashian. Hernandez is the mother to a 12-year-old daughter and lives in Fresno County, California, although sources have been unable to confirm if Hernandez's daughter lived with her.
Unfortunately, Missy Hernandez was last seen on December 7 when she left an art show in Fresno with her boyfriend, a man identified as Ramon Jimenez. According to Missy's friends and family, no one has heard from her after that. On December 8, Missy Hernandez's friends turned to Fresno County Sheriff's Office to report her missing after they could not reach her. Missy's friends told the authorities that it was very unlike of her to not talk to them or pick up her phone.
"Missy is a very social person who is out in the public view regularly, so for her to not be responsive or seen was considered unusual," said Tony Botti, a spokesperson for the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office. A deputy officer was sent to the Kim Kardashian lookalike's home where she was not found. However, the deputy came across Jiminez, who was immediately recognised as a wanted person for domestic violence at Missy's address. Back in October, Missy had filed a report against Jiminez for domestic violence but police had been unable to locate Jiminez at the time.
The deputy took Jimenez into custody on December 8 and booked him in the Fresno County Jail. According to the press release, "Detectives identified Ramon Jimenez as a person of interest and made a request to a judge that he be held without eligibility for bail, which was approved," after evidence suggesting his involvement in Missy's disappearance was collected from her home. On further investigation, detectives have found clear evidence that suggests Jiminez most probably murdered Hernandez. A murder charge was added on January 11.
Police have failed to locate Missy and the mother of one still remains missing. No leads to her possible location has been found yet.
Officials suspect that Missy Hernandez is most probably dead. "Based on the evidence and the length of time Missy has been gone, detectives have reason to believe she is dead and Jimenez is responsible for her death," says a police release. Jiminez is set to appear in court on March 22 where an attorney will be appointed for him.
Missy's 12-year-old daughter is "safe and with her other family members right now," officials told The Sun. She also has family in Texas, who said that she sometimes goes by the name Missy Perez.
