Tampa, Florida — A family of murdered Tampa guards talks about her mysterious death and her legacy.
Last week, investigators found a burnt body of a woman near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
The next day, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said the body belonged to a security guard who was last seen on duty at a Beach Walk condo in Town’N Country.
The family identified her as Alisha Windfield, the mother of three children.
“No matter how hard we try to keep Alisha alive for our children, there’s a lot we can do,” said her sister Kimberly Matthews. “The baby is four years old and doesn’t remember his mother’s hug, so he needs to grow up.”
Matthews said his family was worried when Windfield did not return home after the June 8 shift.
Her body was found a day later, more than 20 miles from Pinellas County.
“Because she went to work on Tuesday and didn’t come home … soon, you know, we knew something was wrong.”
Since then, Beach Walk residents have left flowers, cards and candles in honor of their beloved guards who made a few friends after a year’s work.
“She touched the lives of many people,” said resident Nancy Pacifico. “She will wave. She will smile. She will talk to you. She cares about everyone here.”
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says they focused on the people they were interested in, but no arrests were made.
The family told ABC Action News that the funeral will take place in Tampa on Saturday, June 26th.
