Now TMZ reports that local police had been looking for 25-year-old Tavon Jackson, reportedly Glover's ex-boyfriend, ever since her murder.

According to the New York Daily News, a man deemed as a suspect in the 23-year-old's death was found lifeless in the woods in Tallahassee, Fla. on Tuesday (Feb. 21).

As reported, the apparent cause of death, although still in the preliminary investigative stages, points to suicide.

Detectives, for now, have closed the investigation into Glover's stabbing unless someone comes forward with information contrary to what they believe happened.

T-Pain, who was Glover's uncle, urged his followers to help police locate the killer after his niece's untimely death.

T-Pain, whose real name is Faheem Najm, tweeted about the slaying after Glover was found bleeding from stab wounds outside the drug store where she worked last August. Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "The police are still looking for the coward ass n***a that just killed my niece at Walgreens in Tallahassee. If you got info pls help us out!"

"I am happy and relieved", the victim's mom said of Jackson's death.

Authorities released three photos of the suspect inside the Walgreens shortly after Glover's death.
