Popular model, friend found dead in Buckhead apartment

ATLANTA — Many questions still remain after two women, one a popular local model, were found dead in a Buckhead apartment.

It's still very hard for Chucky Kahng to comprehend why his friend -- Summer Moss -- had to die.

"When you hear about someone like that passing it really does come as a shock," Kahng told Channel 2's Nefertiti Jaquez.

Police found Summer Moss and her friend, Katherine Green, dead in a Buckhead apartment complex Thursday night.  

Police found Moss and her friend, Katherine Green, dead in a Buckhead apartment complex Thursday night.

"It makes it harder to believe that they're not here anymore," Kahng said.

Kahng, a professional photographer, met Moss 10 years ago while covering an event. Since then, the two had been very close friends.

While he wasn’t “as close to” Green – he says he knew her well enough to know both victims were battling drug addiction.


"A tragedy like this was bound to happen. It wasn't a surprise in that regard," Kahng told Jaquez.

Atlanta police would not comment on the open investigation. But sources working the case told Jaquez the bodies of the women were found by a friend around 9 p.m. on April 27.

Moss was found in the bathroom and Green was in a bedroom covered with a blanket.

Sources told Jaquez that officers also found clear bags containing white powder, pills and marijuana in the apartment.

That news was hard for Kahng to process.

“She was fragile, so kind, she was like an angel. That’s the one word people use to describe her – and we didn’t expect her to become an angel so soon,” Kahng said.

Friends and family have set up a YouCaring page to help with funeral expenses for Moss.
