HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA.com) - Romonie Killins is having a hard time comprehending what happened to her friend Felecia.

The girls had been in a youth group together for years until a week ago.

Felecia Williams, 9, disappeared from the Doral Oaks Apartments in Temple Terrace Friday afternoon. The next day two fishermen found her body near the mangroves and rocks on the Courtney Campbell Causeway in Clearwater.

Police believe she was a victim of murder.

"It's hard to watch her mother. It's hard to watch my daughter," said Rosezine Killins, Romonie's mother, at a wake for Felecia on Friday.
