Woman killed in Bonita Springs

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. A woman whose body was discovered early Sunday morning at a home east of Imperial Parkway has been ruled the victim of a homicide, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said.

Sarah Nicholson, 34, was found dead just before 6 a.m. after a fire at her home on the 26000 block of Squire Lane.

Authorities have been tight-lipped about the events that led up to Nicholson’s death, leaving family and neighbors worried.

“It’s scary not knowing who did it or any details about it,” nearby resident Jeanie Hobbs said. “They’re holding everything in, not telling us about it.”

Nicholson was an avid social media user, often posting about Southern Belle Gems and Smells, the small business she ran out of her home.

She was forced to shut down the business after the house was severely damaged during Hurricane Irma.
