Police Confirm Deaths of Rapper, Actress as Murder-Suicide

A rapper and his actress wife did in fact die in a murder-suicide at their Los Angeles apartment earlier this week, police confirmed Wednesday.

Police found the bodies of Earl Warren Hayes, 34, and Stephanie Moseley, 30, inside the Palazzo complex at Hauser Boulevard and Park La Brea on Monday.

"Investigators have determined that Hayes killed his wife Stephanie in their home and then took his own life," Los Angeles police said in a news release.

The pair had recently gotten back together, Detective Scott Masterson said.

Moseley's Internet movie database site said she appeared in a comedy, "The Best Thanksgiving Ever," which is due for release in 2015, and appeared throughout 2014 in the VH1 reality series "Hit the Floor."

Police earlier this week asked to interview boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. following reports that he may have spoken to Hayes before the shooting.
