Los Angeles Police are looking to speak with Floyd Mayweather Jr., amid reports that the boxer somehow witnessed the murder of Canadian actress and dancer Stephanie Moseley.

Ms. Moseley and her husband, rapper Earl Hayes, were found dead in their L.A. apartment Monday in what police believe to be a murder-suicide. TMZ reported Mr. Mayweather was on the phone to Mr. Hayes via FaceTime at the time of the murder, “pleading with him to get a grip.” Citing unnamed sources, the gossip website said Mr. Mayweather “heard everything.”
“Of course we would like to talk to anyone including Floyd Mayweather,”LAPD Lieutenant John Radtke told the National Post. “Yes he’s somebody we would like to talk to and we haven’t talked to him yet.”
Lt. Radtke said there was “hearsay” at the scene, even before the TMZ report, about a possible witness “maybe on Skype.”
“We have not been able to prove or disprove that,” he said.
Ms. Moseley, a Vancouver native, was best known for her role in the VH1 television show Hit the Floor. She was also a backup dancer for Britney Spears and Janet Jackson and had performed with other well-known artists including Beyoncé, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Usher.
Calls to Mr. Mayweather’s publicist were not immediately returned Tuesday morning.
