Celebrity Stylist Murdered

Via Panache Report: Sadia Morrison (above), 26, was a stylist to the stars. She was found dead after being thrown from the roof of an apartment building in New York on June 13, 2008.

Morrison’s high profile client base included rappers Kanye West, Plies, 50 Cent, and Young Jeezy; singer Fantasia, boxer Zab Judah, NFL players Clinton Portis and Thomas Jones, and many more.

Reports say friends became worried about Morrison when they hadn’t heard from her on Friday.

Sadia Morrison was previously arrested after a fight that broke out in the Minxx (Pacman Jones related brawl) in February 2007. The shooting just outside of the club left a bouncer, Tommy Urbanski, paralyzed from the waist down.

Morrison pleaded no contest to the battery charge for her part in the fight. She was sentenced to three years probation.

Morrison’s brother, Paul, did not think her death was connected to the shooting at the Minxx.

Her brother spoke to the medical examiner to identify the body. He stated that she had two head injuries, one from hitting a satellite dish and another probably caused by her attacker.

Paul Morrison said his sister was fierce and blunt, and didn’t take "no" for an answer. He went on to say, "If Sadia’s with you, she’s with you," Morrison said. "If something happens, she’s with you. Sometimes it leads to her downfall, but that’s the way it is."

wow...I didn't even connect the dots re: her being a stylist. Thanks for shedding spotlight on Sadia for being more than the woman with Pacman Jones that night in Vegas.
