A woman whose body was found four days after a fire was identified as 30-year-old Kimberly Davis Tucker, according to the Franklin County Coroner.

Tucker's body was found in a burned out garage on Arlington Avenue in the Linden neighborhood. Firefighters found her body four days after they put out a fire, after neighbors complained of a horrible smell at the scene.

Firefighters said initially the homeowner told them everyone who could've been inside the property was already found.

Davis' mom, who lives in Alexandria, said her daughter was a recovering heroin addict who'd had relapses, but was also trying to help friends kick their drug habit.

Neighbors who live near the fire scene were planning a memorial service for Tucker, to honor her memory and give her a proper burial. Business owners say they were working with Marlan Garly Funeral Home and reaching out to florists to provide flowers for the service.

The cause of death is still pending, and Columbus Police and Fire Chief say they are still investigating the case.
