Family wants answers after woman found shot to death in north city Monday

This is the third tragedy to strike the family in the past two years.

ST. LOUIS — After a woman was found shot to death in north city on Monday, a mourning family is left wondering who killed her and why.

Just before 10 a.m. Monday morning, police found 33-year-old Brandi Leachman shot to death in a yard behind a vacant building in the 5000 block of Enright in north St. Louis.

Police do not currently have a suspect.

Brandi lived near the area where she was found killed. Family saw Brandi in recent weeks and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, Collia Leachman told 5 On Your Side. She said this is a painful mystery for Brandi's loved ones.

This is not the first time tragedy has struck the family. Brandi's 10-year-old son was killed in a still-unsolved hit-and-run in 2017, and her other son, then 15, was shot by a police officer in 2018.

A GoFundMe page was set up to assist Brandi's family with her funeral expenses.

Family held a vigil for Leachman at 6 p.m. Saturday at Fountain Park.

The Homicide Division is investigating Brandi Leachman's death. Anyone with information should call the Homicide Division at 314-444-5371 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477).
