LANCASTER — A woman reported as missing last week, was found dead in a Lancaster hotel on Tuesday.

Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Missing Persons Unit were seeking information on the disappearance of 25-year-old Mykeisha White. She was last seen in the 45600 block of Sancroft Avenue in Lancaster and was known to suffer from a mental condition.

Homicide investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Lancaster station responded to a death investigation at 7:45 a.m., at the Best Western Hotel, in the 2000 block of West Avenue I, regarding a shooting death.

Minimal information was available at that time, with a news release stating a female adult was found at the location and her name was being withheld, pending next of kin notification.

Calls were placed to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, asking for confirmation that the woman found in the hotel was White, but those calls were not returned. However, on Thursday, White’s brother, Malcolm White, confirmed that his sister was the woman found dead in the hotel.

Y’all are disgusting. How was she known to have a mental health issue when the fanily themselves said she doesn’t and Malcom IS NOT comfortable with you mentioning him. You requested information and were denied it you should not have gone on a grieving kids twitter feed to take information you had no reason to even post. Im disappointed and disgusted in whoever published this article because this isn’t news and you're only making the grieving for her brother and family all the much harder. you should be ashamed.
