TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tiffany Nance was found dead Sunday morning by a hunter.

The great aunt of Nance's children, Vanessa Henry, got the call Sunday and says hearing the news was just horrific.

Vanessa did not hold back about Tiffany Nance's troubled life.

The main message she wants to get out there is that she wants closure for the children.

In an exclusive interview, Henry says that Nance dealt with bipolar disorder and depression and struggled with drug and alcohol addiction.

Henry says she adopted Nance's two boys in 2009. 

You can see the stuffed animals therapists gave the boys in remembrance of their mother. Their lives are forever changed.

"I don't want you to just think about her reputation from the streets of Tallahassee," said Henry. "Regardless of what she did. I want you to view her as a mother of three children who left a legacy here to live on. I'm seeking answers and I want justice."

Henry says Nance's third child lives in Gainesville with a family member.

The sheriff's office does suspect foul play.

If anyone has any information, Henry wants you to call the Leon County Sheriff's Office.
