JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- A local entrepreneur is dead and now police believe she was murdered. Investigators found Kim Dorsey, 38, dead in her home Sunday morning. At first, officers thought they were responding to a suicide but now say they are searching for a killer.
Right now no one has been charged, no one is in police custody and detectives won't say who, if anyone, has been questioned. But it has Dorsey's Highland Glen community rattled.
"Its just kind of scary," said neighbor Theresa McCardle.
Neighbors are left with few words as JSO crime scene vans line this quiet street in Highland Glen. Police spent Monday scouring the home for clues into her murder.
"They believe foul play is definitely suspected in this woman's death," said Melissa Bujeda with JSO.
Action News did some digging and found out Dorsey owned her own general contracting company that she ran out of her home. She also worked as a Project Manager at Inspection Depot. Her co-workers tell Action News they hadn't heard the news and are completely shocked.
"Everybody is a daughter or a son or a mother or father to someone so these tragedies occur and it's heartbreaking for the family members involved," Bujeda said.
Bujeda says the key to this case could be with those who knew and loved her.
"A lot of times people think, 'oh I talked to her earlier in the day and she mentioned this tidbit or she didn't feel something was right about this person.' That little piece of information could break a case such a this."
Police now urge neighbors in the quaint community to break the silence for the sake of a woman who's life ended without any explanation.
