A Florida woman found buried in a Jacksonville yard last week has been murdered, police say.
The body of LaDonna Williams, 41, was discovered partially covered near a fence behind an apartment building last Wednesday, according to WJXT-TV.
It was unclear whether she had been home or how she died, according to the report. William’s children told the local outlet they had not heard from their mother for two months.
Local investigators had reclassified his death as a homicide, the station reported.
Williams spoke to the outlet in 2015 after surviving a domestic knife attack.
“I didn’t know who was going to live and who wasn’t,” she said at the time.
“I feel like my son put his life on the line for me and he very well could have lost his life.”
A site that raised money for Williams’ funeral costs said she was “a grandmother of two, soon to be four”.
“LaDonna was an independent, strong and driven wife and mother. She lived her day-to-day life ready for whatever God had planned,” LaDaisha Williams wrote.
