Pregnant Florida woman Felicia Jones found dead in Jacksonville

The body of a woman who was nine months pregnant was discovered in a Florida park over the weekend.

Felicia Jones, 21, was found dead in Jacksonville’s Riverview Park at 6:30 a.m. Saturday after a person who was out walking stumbled across her remains and called 911.

Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office investigators said they are treating Jones’ death as “suspicious,” according to First Coast News.

They added that “foul play” is suspected but would not elaborate further.

Authorities have not said whether they have a suspect.

The young woman’s family said Jones was due to give birth to a baby boy on Oct. 8, adding that it was a planned pregnancy.

“Her baby was expected. We wanted this baby. I was super excited about my nephew. All of that has been taken away from us. We’re distraught right now,” her aunt Angelica Williams told the outlet.

“We’re not taking it well right now. We want answers. We want to know why. We don’t understand who would do such a disgusting crime. It’s sickening.”

The family did not say who the baby’s father was.

Jones’ cause of death has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner.
