A 34-year-old woman's body was found Sunday on the Northside of Jacksonville at Restlawn Cemetery.

Investigators said they suspect foul play in the death of Keisha Murray, and that's leaving nearby residents on edge.

Police said Murray's body was found in plain view underneath a tree.

"I really don't. You can't trust nobody these days no more," one resident said.

Murray was found wearing a yellow dress.

"So far we have not been able to determine how she got here. We're still in the very early stages in this investigation. So it may take us a little while to determine some things, but we're looking at all avenues," said Sgt. T.K. Waters.

Some of the people Channel 4 spoke with said the area is a place where people typically feel safe -- the last place they would expect something like this to happen. And the people in the area want the suspect caught before anyone else becomes a victim.

"I hope they catch this guy. Him or her, whoever did it. Just catch him. Don't take that," one resident said.

Anyone who has any information about the killing is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500 or email JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org. To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000 contact Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
