EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, MO (KCTV) -
Authorities in Florida announced Monday afternoon that the body of a missing Jacksonville woman was found covered with rocks in a Clay County gully.
Kimberly Dawn Mackey, 48, was last seen last week, and police had suspected foul play.
Her former husband has been arrested in connection with her death. According to the Florida Times-Union, Jeff Mackey, 58, provided details on where the woman's body could be found after he was taken into custody.
Kimberly Dawn Mackey moved to Jacksonville in the past year where she was attending nursing school.
The couple has two teenage sons, the newspaper reported.
Media outlets in the Jacksonville area reported Monday afternoon that the woman's body was found in a gully in Excelsior Springs and it was covered with rocks.
But the Excelsior Springs Police Department said the location is actually in rural Clay County.
Crime scene tape surrounds the area where Kimberly Mackey's body was found.
Officials with the Clay County Sheriff's Office declined comment, referring questions to authorities in Florida.
A second ex wife of Jeff Mackey owns the property in the 10300 block of Parman Road in Clay County where the body was found. She lives there with her son by Jeff Mackey.
