Kids find mother stabbed to death

Authorities said a single mother of six children was discovered by her kids stabbed to death in her bed.

Andrea Perry, 50, was discovered at about 9:30 a.m. inside a residence in the 39000 block of Desert Holly Lane in Palmdale.

Detectives are investigating, and no arrests have been made.

"We were banging on her door and she wouldn't open the door," one of her daughters told KTLA. "We went in there and she was just lying there."

"Her face was just covered with a blanket," another daughter told KTLA. "It was a horrible sight."

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the sheriff’s homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500.

Was it necessary to interview the children like that? They're going through hell losing their mother, and for them to have to speak to reporters like that just makes things worse. It's just exploitative.

I want to extend my condolences to Andrea's family and friends during this time of lost. I pray that the person responsible turns himself over to authorities. She did not deserve this and I feel so sorry for her children. Rest In Peace.

just sad very touching my prayer go to the family of the victim
