Mystery of bartender, 23, found dead in her home as her family say the ‘unknown is driving them crazy’ | The Sun

MYSTERY continues to grow over two weeks after a young woman was found slain in her apartment in Florida as her family begs for answers.

Kayla Hodgson, a 23-year-old bartender, was found killed in Tamarac, Broward County, on July 13, but no arrest has been made so far in the case.

Kayla's devastated family are searching for answers.

Speaking to WPLG-TV Friday, a family friend identified only as Brianna, said: "She was bright. She was beautiful. She was everybody's hype man.

"Her life was gone way too soon."

The Broward County Sheriff's Office announced it was investigating the homicide, but the nature in which Kayla was killed is currently being withheld.

"The unknown is driving us crazy," Brianna said.

"We don't know who did this. We don't know why you would do this."

She added: "We are praying for justice."

Kayla's loved ones have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to cover the funeral expenses after the young woman "passed away unexpectedly due to someone taking her life away from us".

On the campaign page, friends and family describe the victim as "an amazing daughter, a loved one and adored big sister, niece, granddaughter and cousin, whose bond was like no other".
