Police have confirmed that a 30-year-old woman arrested in Tulare County for the killing of three young children whose bodies were found at a Reseda apartment Saturday was their mother, and considered the suspect.
Liliana Carrillo was arrested in the Ponderosa area of Tulare County, east of Porterville, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Rosario Cervantes said about 2:30 p.m.
Police said all the children appeared to be under the age of 5, and were found in the 8000 block of Reseda Boulevard, near Strathern Street, after the deaths were reported about 9:30 a.m., according to Cervantes.
“Officers responded to a death investigation of three victims who were found deceased,” Cervantes said. “The cause of death has yet to be determined, as well as motive.”
According to NBC4 and ABC7, which both cited police sources, the victims were found by their grandmother and had been stabbed to death.
The LAPD reported early Saturday afternoon that Carrillo may have carjacked a silver Toyota pickup in the Bakersfield area.
