Who killed Felicia Jones? Pregnant Black woman, 21, found dead in Florida Park
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA: A nine-months-pregnant woman has been found dead in Riverview Park in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, September 25. The woman, identified as 21-year-old Felicia Jones, was due to give birth next week on October 8, 2021. She was reportedly expecting a baby boy. The shocking incident came to light around 6 am local time on Saturday, when her lifeless body was discovered by an individual taking a walk inside the park.
Though the cause of her death is yet to be ascertained, the police are treating the case as "suspicious death with foul play expected." Felicia Jones' death comes at a time when the entire nation is rattled by the death of Gabby Petito and the mysterious disappearance of her fiance Brian Laundrie. Amid the rising uproar on crimes against women, Felicia Jones' tragic death comes as a brutal shock.
According to First Coast News, Jacksonville Sheriff's Office received a 911 call early in the morning, informing about Jones' unresponsive body. The officials soon found her at the park and pronounced her dead. However, the investigators have not revealed the details which led them to consider the death as an act of foul play.
Meanwhile, Felicia Jones' family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise the funeral expenses for the expecting mother and her unborn baby. Her child was reportedly going to be named Ma'kailand. No details about the baby's father have been revealed yet.
"Our family took a major loss we lost my niece and nephew. This is a unexpected tragedy for our family and can’t believe we lost Felicia and her unborn child. He was set to be here in just two weeks. We appreciate and Thank you for any donations towards burial expenses," wrote organizer Angelica Williams, who happens to be Jones' aunt.
Speaking to First Coast News, Williams urged, "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. This is a whole unborn baby ready to be born in two weeks. A beautiful young lady who just turned 21 this month."
She further added, "Felicia, better known as Fee Fee, she was a beautiful person inside and out. 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."
Williams also condemned the heinous crime saying, "We want answers. We want to know why. We don't understand who would do such a disgusting crime. It's sickening."
