Police now know the identity of the woman found stuffed inside a cabinet in a Clay County pond on Friday.

Clay County Sheriff Kevin Johnson says Tammi Sizemore Roberts had been missing for nearly two weeks. "At that time deputies began to back track Mrs. Roberts steps she had been missing according to family members since the 28th of April," explains Johnson.

Roberts family received a suspicious phone call that changed everything. "Some of the family members received a phone call directing another family member to go to that location."
