She was 55 years old and the cause of death appears to be homicide, according to sources who point to an incident on Dec. 22 in Van Nuys, Calif., And Simi Valley, Calif.
According to a local report, a woman in her 50s was found dead in the trunk of a parked car in Simi Valley, just north of Los Angeles. Sources confirm that Kukawski was the woman. The Simi Valley Police Department and the LAPD arrested the suspected murder suspect, who appears to have transported Van Nuys’ body to a relative’s home in Simi Valley in the wee hours of December 23.
The 49-year-old white man is being held on $ 2 million bail, according to an LA County inmate admission record.
Not much else is currently known about the circumstances of the crime.
Kukowski was a mother of five and, according to friends, was “loved” in the industry. She is described as “hardworking” and “a simple shooter” by a music business associate who contacted her.
