It said then: "To be clear, Sophia death is being investigated as a robbery and homicide. We're going to take time off social media because this is difficult. But we do appreciate seeing the stories from people who knew her. We all agree she was a sweetheart, kind, and gentle. We all love her."

Sophia's mother, according to the gossip outlet that obtained the police report after the body was discovered, informed the responding officers that she had not received any communication from her daughter for more than 24 hours and had become concerned. Leone 'was known to drink' and had suicidal thoughts, the mum told the police; however, it is unknown whether these factors contributed to her death.

According to the gossip outlet, Albuquerque Police Department also confirmed that they only view the death as suspicious and, after further investigation, have found no evidence to suggest it was a homicide. Her family also reportedly knew she was in the adult film industry, and that they had access to all her cameras.

The homicide detective initially attended Sophia's autopsy, the results of which are still pending. At that time, they were informed that the case did not fall under their jurisdiction, noting the absence of any signs of trauma. Currently, the authorities said they are treating Sophia's death as suspicious.

Following her death, friends and family launched a fundraising campaign to help her loved ones provide 'the best memorial' for her and cover costs associated with the investigation, funeral expenses, and any other costs that may arise.
