Mother of three of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s children found dead

SANTA CLARITA, CALIFORNIA (AP) — An ex-girlfriend of boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr who was the mother of three of his children was found dead in a Southern California suburb, authorities said.

The coroner’s office confirmed on Wednesday that the woman was Josie Harris, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told KABC-TV.

The woman was found just before 10pm on Tuesday in a vehicle parked in the driveway of her apparent residence just outside the city of Santa Clarita and firefighters pronounced her dead, a sheriff’s department statement said.

Sheriff’s investigators and the coroner’s office were working to determine the cause of death, Villanueva said. “It will take a while to figure that out,” he said.
