‘James Bond’ Allegedly Kills Magazine Model
A female “James Bond” has been fingered in the 2008 murder of Maxim magazine model Juliana Redding. Redding was discovered, beaten and strangled to death, in her California apartment, according to reports.
Prosecutors in the case recently announced that a 46-year-old woman, Kelly Soo Park, is believed to be responsible for Redding’s death. According to court documents, there is existing forensic evidence that links Park to Redding’s murder.
Prosecutors also believe that Park may have been acting as a hitman for Lebanese doctor Munir Uwaydah.
Redding had been romantically involved with Uwaydah shortly before her death. Greg Redding, the victim’s father, was a pharmacist. Uwaydah and the elder Redding attempted to strike a business deal. It was during this meeting that Uwaydah told the model’s father that he employed an enforcer, a woman that he called “James Bond.”
Prosecutors have stated that previous reports of the use of intimidation, force, and violence by or on behalf of Uwaydah have been been made.
“[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.
Park has maintained her innocence and has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge against her.
