An 18-year-old mother found dead in her southside apartment Thursday morning.
"Foul play is suspected at this time," says Sgt. Dan Larson with JSO.
Larson says police were called to the San Pablo Apartments off Beach around 8:41 a.m. Thursday where they found Rosa Garcia dead. She apparently worked with her husband at the Jax Beach La Nopalera but stopped 2 months ago to care for the couple's sick 2-year-old daughter. The husband apparently has been missing from work since Monday. Also missing is the family's 2005-2009 silver Nissan Altima with a temporary tag.
Neighbors say the husband is the only person who drives the car. They tell our partner Action News they saw him leaving the apartment complex yesterday morning around 8 a.m. Moments later they say they saw Garcia's sister-in-law enter the complex with the daughter, looking for Garcia. Shortly afterward police arrived
Police say Garcia's husband is not a suspect at this time..you're asked to call JSO or Crimestoppers if you have any information.
