JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Jacksonville mother who police said was found murdered hours after she was reported missing is being remembered as a woman with a beautiful spirit.
Police said 46-year-old Rosemene Decius worked at the United States Postal Service, and her coworkers said she was a delight to be around.
“She was a beautiful person inside and outside and loved her kids,” Decius’ co-worker Khalilah Mitchell said. “She talked about them all the time and how she proud she was of them.”
Mitchell said the two would greet each other with hugs and kisses every time they saw each other.
On July 7, USPS told the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office that Decius hadn’t been to work, according to an arrest report. The same day, Decius’ daughter called police to report her missing, saying that she hadn’t heard from her all day, which wasn’t normal.
