Daily Mail Online: LONDON, England – Liliana Carrillo, 30, was on the run for several hours before she was taken into custody in the Ponderosa area of Tulare County, the Los Angeles Police Department said on Twitter.
The grandmother had found the children – all under the age of 5 – slain inside a Los Angeles apartment Saturday morning and their mother gone, police said.
The grandmother was returning home from work when she went inside an apartment in the Reseda neighborhood and found the children had been stabbed to death, Los Angeles police Lt Raul Jovel said.
The LAPD tweeted the children appeared to be under 5 years old after a police spokesman initially said they were under the age of 3.
The gruesome discovery was made around 9.30am in the 8000 block of Reseda Boulevard, Jovel said.
Police said the mother, 30-year-old Liliana Carrillo, abandoned her car and carjacked another
Jovel said investigators were still working to determine a motive but were seeking the public’s help locating the children’s mother before she was taken into custody.
‘At this point, she is a suspect in this incident but that doesn’t exclude other people,’ Jovel said.
The department received reports Carrillo was driving her car and heading north Saturday on Interstate 5 when she got in an altercation in the Bakersfield area. She abandoned her car and carjacked another vehicle, he said.
Police said Carrillo might be driving a stolen silver Toyota pickup license J258T0 and heading north.
‘We’re trying to figure out what ties she has up north,’ he said.
