While off duty, Detective Leist was struck and killed by a vehicle in Los Angeles, CA on January 12, 2020. She had just finished rendering aid to an elderly pedestrian who had fallen in a crosswalk while crossing a major intersection. Detective Leist was crossing back through the intersection to return to her vehicle when a vehicle accidentally struck her in the street.
