The case of a health care worker who went missing in Miramar nearly eight months ago is now being treated as a homicide investigation, authorities said Thursday.
Stephanie Ray Clemons, 55, was last seen on May 20, 2018, outside her home in the 7200 block of Venetian Street, Miramar Police said. Clemons, a phlebotomist at Jackson Memorial Hospital, failed to show up for work the following Monday and no one has heard from her since.
She also left her vehicle behind, and it's unknown how she left the home.
At a news conference Thursday, officials announced the case is being treated as a homicide now.
"I just want them to find my sister, I want them to bring her home," sister Sylvia Ray told reporters at the news conference. "Whoever had anything to do with it, I want them to pay for it."
Police said no arrests have been made but added that Clemons' husband, Jack Freeman, Jr., has been named a person of interest. They said he hasn't been cooperating with investigators.
NBC 6 reached out to the husband on Thursday but he didn't return calls for comment. Police said there were more than 20 reports of domestic violence incidents involving Freeman.
"The whole family is just really hurting because we don't know what has happened," Ray said.
A reward of $3,000 is being offered by Crime Stoppers for information in the case.
