A Minneapolis realtor was abducted and murdered by a drug dealer in retaliation for a dispute he had with her boyfriend.

Police say Monique Baugh, a 28-year-old mother of two, was shot and killed in an alleyway on Jan. 1, 2020.

Baugh, a real estate agent, was lured to an empty Maple Grove home under the pretense of showing the house on New Year's Day.

Two men rented a U-Haul truck for a friend Cedric Berry, a drug dealer who paid them in heroin.

Surveillance video from across the street shows Baugh arrive and park at the home around 3 p.m. in a black BMW. She was seen going inside the house to prepare for the showing.

According to an affidavit, the U-Haul passed the house and a person was seen walking into the home.

The U-Haul then pulled up to the house and backed up to the garage doors. Two men were seen walking out of the garage "and appeared to be closely, if not forcibly, holding onto a third person," according to the affidavit.

Two people were seen getting into the back of the U-Haul at about 3:20 p.m., and a third person drove it away. Police later found Baugh's BMW still parked at the empty Maple Grove house.

The U-Haul was abandoned in an alley where Baugh's body was found. The truck "smelled strongly of ammonia," according to the complaint.

The U-Haul truck was traced to the men who rented it, and they gave up Berry's name. Berry was arrested on Jan. 2.

A search warrant was executed on Berry's vehicle. Police found 13 bags of marijuana. And a black mask.

Berry was charged with kidnapping and second-degree murder in Baugh's death. Baugh's boyfriend, a rival drug dealer, was also shot on New Year's Day, but he survived the shooting.

Berry is also charged with second-degree murder for attempting to kill Baugh's boyfriend, the father of her two children.

The boyfriend told police a man entered his home using a key, and shot him several times in the torso. The children, ages 1 and 3, were inside the home at the time. They were not injured.

A GofundMe account created to help Baugh's children raised over $30,000 in donations.

Insiders say the prim and proper host confessed to a live audience that she helped her boyfriend "facilitate" selling cocaine when she was a teenager in college.

On Friday, Hall backtracked, saying her words were taken out of context.

Hall told DailyMail.com in a statement that she never "dealt drugs" in college. She said she was speaking about "part of an open and honest conversation about women" in prison.

Hall explained, "During an interview with prison rights advocate Topeka Sam, I shared a story about a bad situation I got myself into when I was 19. I never dealt drugs."

Even if she did deal drugs, it happened over 3 decades ago.

"I am now nearly 50 years old and was reflecting on a bad judgement call that could have turned worse. I say but for the grace of God, there go I. It was part of an open and honest conversation about women, incarceration and mistakes made."

Hall admitted producers edited the segment in which she reportedly confessed to dealing drugs.

"For legal reasons a portion of that segment was edited from the show. I hope my show can be a forum for sharing stories without shame or judgement - including a conversation we're having Friday on opioid addiction."

Law & Crime, Dallas PD

A second suspect has been arrested in the ambush murder of Joshua Brown, a key witness in the Amber Guyger murder trial in Dallas, Texas.

Police say Brown, 28, was shot to death during a drug deal that went horribly wrong on Friday night. He was killed 10 days after he testified against Guyger, a former Dallas police officer who is currently serving 10 years in prison for murdering Botham Jean, 26.

Just 2 days after Guyger's trial ended, Brown was killed by three men who, police say, drove from Alexandria, Louisiana to buy 12 pounds of marijuana from him.

During his testimony, Brown admitted to previously serving time for a felony drug conviction.

The three men met Brown in the parking lot of his apartment complex. An argument ensued and Brown shot one of the men before he was shot twice. Brown was rushed to Parkland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police say Michael Mitchell, 32, has been arrested in Brown's murder. Another suspect, Jacquerious Mitchell, 20, is in intensive care in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Police are searching for the third suspect, Thaddeous Green, 22, of Louisiana.

Dallas police denied Brown's death was linked to the Guyger trial, and the police department vigorously denied rumors of retaliation or assassination.

During a press conference to announce the arrests, Dallas Police Assistant Chief Avery Moore rebuked "community leaders" for spreading rumors.

If you thought former drug kingpin Alpo was in the witness protection program after snitching on fellow drug lords, you thought wrong.

Actor Faizon Love (right) posted a photo of himself posing with the notorious Harlem drug dealer-turned-federal witness Alberto "Alpo" Martinez.

In the photo caption Faizon hinted at an upcoming project with Alpo: "Y'all not ready for Alpo and Faizon ...oh sh*t."

Faizon later deleted the post after receiving backlash for posing with the man whose testimony sent lower level drug workers to prison.

Alpo was released from prison after serving a portion of his 35-year prison sentence.

He was once considered a hero to Harlem residents who looked to him for Thanksgiving turkey giveaways and for protection from rival drug dealers.

But Alpo's admirers turned on him after he murdered drug rival Rich Porter in 1990. Porter was reportedly a blood relative of the late socialite Kim Porter.

According to VladTV, Alpo spared himself from serving a life sentence by testifying against his alleged D.C. enforcer Wayne "Silk" Perry in open court. Perry received five consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole.

According to Vice, Alpo was released from prison in a little-known federal prison witness protection program called "cheese factories" in 2015.
