The body of the missing woman in Florida can be found in the middle of a wreck of her friend's boat a week after a fire

Almost a week after the inside of the ship was on fire, the body of a missing Florida woman was found with her on board among the wreckage of her friend's wife's boat.

Daytona Beach police officers confirmed Tuesday that the body of 31-year-old Nikki Shriver was lying on a couch under a large cushion on the boat.

Fire Marshal & # 39; s State authorities inspected the boat for possible arson when they found Shriver's body.

He told the police that Shriver had committed suicide attacks on him and his wife during a telephone conversation.

When first responders arrived, they noticed that the ship was floating about 20 feet from the docks in the middle of the canal.

& # 39; It appears that someone has loosened the ropes that hold the boat against the shore so that the ship can float away, & # 39; the police said.

Moments later, the first responders heard several gunshots and saw flames coming out of the boat.

Police said there were three firearms on board, including an AK-47 with around 100 rounds, a shotgun with around 5 rounds, and a gun with around 30 rounds.

& # 39; All efforts were made from the shore to see if the woman lived on board and to let her come out, including the use of a drone, a public address system and a helicopter, & # 39; the police said.

Officials did not say how Shriver died or how the fire started.
