Monica Quan, Ladies College Basketball coach and fiance, Keith Lawrence, shot dead in parking garage
Two Southern California college employees, a coach and a campus safety officer, were found shot to death in a car at their upscale condominium complex in Southern California, and authorities say they have no motive or suspects in the killing.
Cal State Fullerton assistant women’s basketball coach Monica Quan, 28, and her fiance University of Southern California public safety officer Keith Lawrence, 27, were found dead Sunday on the top floor of a parking structure at the complex, police said.
Quan was found in the front passenger seat and Lawrence was in the driver seat, Irvine Police Lt. Julia Engen said.
“It doesn’t appear they were robbed,” Engen told the Orange County Register. “There’s no obvious motive.”
Few other details have been released, but both campuses where the couples worked issued statements grieving the loss.
Lawrence and Quan played basketball at Concordia University, where they met while they were students, according to Brian Gaul, the school’s athletic director.
Quan was in her second season as an assistant coach at Cal State Fullerton.
“The loss of any member of the Titan family causes our community great grief, but the loss of one of our own under these circumstances is indeed tragic and heart-wrenching,” university President Mildred Garcia said in a statement Monday. “We hope that Monica’s family and friends will feel and be comforted by our support during this difficult time.”
