The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner has identified the victim as Ronda Jackson.
The property manager and friend of the victim can't believe she's dead.
"It's really sad. I've known her so long. She never bothered nobody. She was a nice, polite person. All of us are going to miss her. We saw her on a daily basis," said a friend of the victim.
Sources close to the investigation tell 19 Action News the victim was stabbed over 50 times.
