"We want answers. We want to know why. We don't understand who would do such a disgusting crime," says a grief-stricken aunt.
21-year-old Felicia Jones was due to give birth on October 8, 2021, She was excited about being a mother for the very first time, but on September 25, she was found dead in a Florida state park, reports PEOPLE. Her lifeless body was discovered around 6:30 am local time, by an individual who was walking in Jacksonville's Riverview Park, according to First Coast News.
Per the Jacksonville Sheriff's office, the person then called 911. Dispatchers located the body and then declared her dead. Investigators with the Florida-based Sheriff's Office said they are now treating the case as a "suspicious death with foul play expected," though it is yet to be revealed why they came to that conclusion.
Now, Jones's aunt, Angelica Williams, and her family are requesting the public to help bring justice to her niece and her unborn child. "I want Jacksonville to come together on this. We can't let this go. We can't let this slide. We need everybody to come together," she said. "This is a whole unborn baby ready to be born in two weeks. A beautiful young lady who just turned 21 this month."

"Felicia, better known as Fee Fee, she was a beautiful person inside and out," added the distraught relative. "She had that bubbly spirit. Even if she was going through something, you wouldn't be able to tell because she was that type of person where she had a lot of strength. She was super excited about being a first-time mom."
