UPDATE • APRIL 10, 2021• 4:16 PM

The mother of three children found dead Saturday morning in Reseda remains in custody hours after their bodies were found inside an apartment, authorities said.

Liliana Carrillo, 30, has been described by police as the “sole suspect” in the deaths of her children, who all appear be under the age of 5, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Their bodies were found inside an apartment in the 8000 block of Reseda Boulevard at 9:30 a.m., police said.

Around noon, Officer Rosario Cervantes told KTLA the children had been fatally stabbed. However, the department later issued a news release and series of tweets stating a cause of death and motive had yet to be determined.

Earlier, police described Carrillo as a person of interest and announced at 2:30 p.m. she had been taken into custody in the Ponderosa area of Tulare County. She allegedly committed a carjacking while remaining at large earlier.

LAPD Lt. Raul Jovel told the Associated Press she was gone when the children’s grandmother came home from work and found their bodies in the apartment. He described her as a suspect but said police were still working to determine a possible motive.
