FRUIT COVE, Fla. -- Nicole Bush's father remembers her as hardworking and kind. 

"She was a very beautiful, loving person. She had no enemies, and she loved her two kids. They were her life," Bush's father Monroe Thompson recalled.

In May, detectives said Bush called a friend from her Fruit Cove home, saying she needed help.

"They went by to check and her garage door was open," Thompson said.  "So that's when they called the sheriff because she never leaves her door open."

Emergency personnel found Bush inside her home. She'd been shot multiple times and died at the hospital.

Detectives collected evidence from her home and have sent it to a crime lab. They're waiting on the results.  But they do not have the gun or any suspects right now.

"We do not believe this is a random act but I can't discuss with you why we believe that," Sgt. Chuck Mulligan with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office stated.

The 35-year-old was separated from her husband, Sean, who family said lives in Jacksonville.

"There were some marital issues ongoing," Mulligan explained. "But having a difficult time in your marriage does not lead anyone to point fingers."

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office is not saying much so they won't jeopardize the investigation, but her family wants people to know about their daughter.

"She had a beautiful personality, got along with everyone, wouldn't hurt anyone. So why this happened, I don't know," Thompson said of his daughter.
