TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - One year ago today, the body of Tiffany Nance was found in the Ochlockonee River Wildlife Management Area in Leon County.

A year has passed but the family of 33-year-old Tiffany Nance is still trying to find a sense of closure after the horrific news of her murder.

The probable cause affidavit says Nance was repeatedly stabbed, and left in a heavily wooded area. Her body was found by a local hunter.

The report states that DNA evidence collected at the scene points to Bryon Massey.

Nance was a mother of two young children when she was killed. Her great aunt, Vanessa Henry, is the legal guardian of the boys.

"I'll see closure when we get a verdict, the final verdict," said Henry. "I'm actually the only family member in town to be able to see this through. "

Henry adds, her and Nance's children go to Massey's court dates, continuing to seek closure.

Massey has an extensive criminal history, including sexual assault. He was out on bond and wearing a GPS monitor when he was arrested for Vance's murder.

He is facing first-degree murder charges.
