RIP MONIKA GEORGE AWADALLA (May 27, 2000 – August 12, 2023)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Saturday at 2:09 p.m.

Ruling by the deputy medical examiner was published on December 15, presumably after the results of tox screening came back positive for the drugs.

The decedent’s body was found on an on-ramp to the 101 Freeway in the Chinatown area.

California Highway Patrol says the discovery was made at around 1:58 p.m. on the Alameda Street/Los Angeles Street on-ramp to the northbound freeway.

Monica Awadalla appears to have been of Egyptian heritage.

She had previously gone missing in 2017 when she was 17 years old.

She is survived by her four children.
