Body of Kim Kardashian lookalike Missy Hernandez FOUND in aqueduct as boyfriend arrested for murder


The body of a California woman was found at the bottom of an aqueduct, five days after her boyfriend was charged with her murder.

Missy Hernandez, 30, was discovered at the structure near Huron on Tuesday. 

Her boyfriend Ramon Jimenez, 41, was charged with her murder after the Fresno sheriff’s office determined that she had died under suspicious circumstances. 

Hernandez, who has an 11-year-old daughter, had last been seen on December 7 after going to an art show in downtown Fresno with Jimenez. 

Friends of Hernandez became worried after she stopped picking up her phone and taking their calls, describing her sudden lack of contact as ‘unusual.’

‘Missy is a very social person who is out in the public view regularly, so for her to not be responsive or seen was considered unusual,’ said Tony Botti, a spokesperson for the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy went to her home where he ran into Jimenez and recognized him ‘as a person wanted for domestic violence against Missy in October 2021 at this same address,’ the sheriff’s office said.  

Jimenez was taken into custody on December 8 and booked into the Fresno County Jail. 

He has been charged with murder and domestic violence, with his next court appearance is scheduled for March.

Following his arrest, Hernandez’s friends went to her home where they discovered evidence that she had been injured.

It led to a month-long investigation which saw the police collecting evidence, including DNA, that suggested an act of violence had occurred at her home.

Search teams then looked for Hernandez’s remains in several locations, including the Grapevine on Interstate 5 and the Highway 198 corridor in western Fresno County.

‘After not having any success, a decision was made on January 16th to attempt a dangerous dive operation in a specific area of the California Aqueduct,’ the sheriff’s office explained.

Hernandez’s body was later found under the water in the aqueduct, near Huron.

The California Aqueduct is a system of canals that carries water from the Sierra Nevada to other parts of California. 

Hernandez’s family set up a GoFundMe to help pay for her funeral.

‘As many of you know my aunt was taken from our family in a very tragic and horrific way,’ her niece Dolly Ayala wrote.

‘She was murdered by someone who abused her daily, a coward who took her from her daughter and family in the worst possible way.

‘She tried to leave and get away many times and in the end she lost this long fight. She went missing on December 7 and was missing for over a month before we found her.’

‘We finally have her back and we can finally lay her to rest and get the closure we need,’ Hernandez’s niece said.
