Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate cold case of Lawanna McDaniel

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has highlighted a cold case this month involving the unsolved death of Lawanna McDaniel.


Action News Jax told you back in December 2014 when McDaniel was found lying in a rural ditch in the area of 18000 Wells Rd.

The family said she never went far from home. When the body was found her family had a sinking feeling it was her.

“We all feel incomplete really. Really without her,” Whitney Taylor, McDaniel’s daughter said.
