GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. -

A 39-year-old Florida woman in Tennessee visiting a friend was found dead inside a storage closet at a Goodlettsville apartment complex and the friend's son is now in custody for the crime.

Yolanda Tashauna's body was discovered by residents at the Greens of Rivergate Apartments on Green Circle around 10:45 p.m. Thursday.

Goodlettsville police Chief Gary Goodwin told News 2 she had been beaten and stabbed multiple times.

"I get up this morning, and I look at the news and I discover a woman has been stabbed to death, right across from my apartments," said resident Tyshell Buchanan said.

Tashauna is believed to have arrived at the apartment complex around 11:30 a.m. Thursday morning to visit a friend.

That friend's son, 22-year-old Jamon French, has confessed to the murder.

Police said he took the victim's rental vehicle and other personal items and robbery appears to be the motive.

However, police said French stated that God told him to kill Tashauna.

The investigation is ongoing.
