Juliana Redding was a model and aspiring actress, appearing briefly in the 2005 film “Kathy T” and gracing the pages of Maxim before she was strangled to death in 2008. Now, new evidence has come to light that seems to suggest she was killed by a woman, who is nicknamed “James Bond” for her strong-arming ways.
After a business deal between Redding’s father and a Lebanese physician, Munir Uwaydah, went sour, Uwaydah allegedly sent Kelly Soo Park–on the books as his real estate agent and financial assistant–to Redding’s home to “threaten and intimidate” her. Forensic evidence ties Park to Redding’s home, but she has pleaded not guilty to the crime of murdering the young model.
“[Park] has committed other distinctive acts of misconduct against similar victims under similar circumstances which exhibit common features of threats, intimidation and bullying for the purpose of assisting Dr. Uwaydah’s business interests,” reads a motion filed by prosecutors.
As for Uwaydah–who briefly dated Redding–he claims he sent Park to Redding’s home, but not with the intent to see her killed. He has relocated out of the country, supposedly to Lebanon.
