Sacramento murder victim was a YouTube hit for fashion

The Sacramento County Coroner's Office released the name of a mother of three who was fatally shot in south Sacramento Wednesday morning.

Thirty-one-year-old Tamisha Evette Glashen, who also went by the name Meesha Ridge, was shot to death in a case of domestic violence, police believe. Officers arrested her ex-boyfriend, Dameshlo Green, 34. He turned himself in to police for a parole violation and was later booked into Sacramento County Jail for homicide.

Ridge was an online sensation. She used social media to spread her knowledge of fashion design.

Thousands of people were drawn to her videos on putting together clothing pieces on a budget. She had more than 140,000 subscribers to her YouTube channel.

Her charismatic personality shined through while she shared simple tips on sewing.

Fellow fashion designer Lauren Taylor of Mississippi was one of Ridge's followers. She would watch her videos daily.

"She had a wonderful, beautiful spirit about herself. Always smiling. You got the impression she was a really nice girl that really just loved to sew and wanted to share that with the world," Taylor said.

Ridge also had an online fabric store where fans could purchase some of her designs.

Her loyal followers have turned to social media to mourn her loss. The hashtag: #MeeshaTaughtMe has been trending on Facebook and Twitter.

One tweet read: "Tamisha Ridge was the first person to convince me I could sew! She has been such an inspiration. RIP Sweet Meesha."

Ridge's life abruptly came to an end when she was shot in her sleep.

Homicide investigators say Green snuck into her bedroom and opened fire. Several relatives and Ridge's three children were inside of the home at the time.
