Johnson, who lived in the Manchester area, has been identified by her sisters who made the grisly discovery at her home just after midnight. She had been missing for a few days when they went looking for her.

"And my sisters and I, we had been looking for her. And we found her. My sisters found her in her home hogtied, with her mouth duct-taped rolled up in a blanket," Tyesa Harvey, one of Johnson's daughters, said.

Investigators have yet to name any possible suspects or provide a motive for the killing.
