Friends said Webster was in Kentucky working at an assembly plant.
They told Arizona's Family the mother of three looked for work in Arizona, but there were no jobs.
Just a few weeks before her death, Webster and a life-long friend, Kaveena Dan, got matching friendship tattoos.
It was one of their last times together.
"(The tattoo) has taken on a whole new meaning in so many different ways," Dan said. "It means a lot."
Police said a man confessed to killing Webster.
A motive in the case still is not known.
