The influencer lived at the Cortland Apartments located at 5200 Pointe West Circle. Neighbors told KTRK-TV that the apartment complex is normally safe and quiet. "It would be kind of surprising to know that this was an intruder, someone that broke into the house because I wouldn't think that would happen here," resident Field Ledford said.
