Kelvin Nelson Jr. and Boglarka Halasi Obituary News: Marina del Rey deaths a possible murder-suicide

Boglarka Halasi and Kelvin Nelson Jr. Murder-Suicide: Marina del Rey deaths a possible murder-suicide.

Authorities identified the 25-year-old woman whose body was discovered on a boat in Marina del Rey one week ago and who was named as a homicide victim on Saturday.

The person who was discovered dead on Thursday, December 7, 2023, was identified as Boglarka Halasi by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner’s Office.

On that very day, the body of Kelvin Nelson Jr., 33, who was reportedly a resident of the boat, was discovered in a vehicle. His manner of death was ruled suicide.

According to Lt. Steven De Jong of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, deputies from the Marina del Rey Sheriff’s Station were summoned to the 14000 block of Tahiti Way at 11:12 a.m. on December 7 in reference to a welfare check at a boat in the Marina, where they discovered Halasi’s body.

The Los Angeles Police Department claimed that throughout the course of their inquiry, a local who knew the residents of the boat notified them about a car that was parked close by in the 100 block of Via Marina, which is where Nelson’s body was discovered.

Nelson’s death was reported as a strangling suicide by the medical examiner a few days later.

The sheriff’s office issued an update on Thursday, stating, among other things: “According to locals, the individual lived aboard the boat that homicide investigators were looking into. The deceased woman’s case is still being investigated.”

The sheriff’s office said on Thursday that the county medical examiner’s office “has ruled Halasi’s death a homicide.” The medical examiner’s office states that strangling was also Halasi’s cause of death.
