INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- Family members of a 22-year-old pregnant mother who was stabbed to death in Venice spoke with Eyewitness News Thursday.
Jasmine Preciado was a mother to a 3-year-old girl and pregnant with her second child when she was killed in a brutal stabbing at Windward and Pacific avenues.
"They killed not only her but a baby, an unborn child. It's caused us a lot of hurt and we're all suffering now. Now her daughter's not going to have a mom anymore," her aunt, Jackie Bustamante, said.
Her heartbroken mother, grandmother and other family members struggle to cope with the loss.
"I love my baby. She was always happy and I just adore my child," her grandmother, Sophia Quesada, said.
The deadly attack was captured on surveillance video. In the footage, a scuffle appears to start on the left side of the screen. Then a woman runs onto the sidewalk and turns, appearing to hold a knife in her left hand.
Police are searching for two women and a man suspected in the murder who all fled the scene in a dark-colored SUV.
"She would give you the last sweater on her back if you were cold. I don't know why someone would do this," her friend Maya said.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise funds for her funeral and can be found at www.gofundme.com/jasmine-preciados-burial.
Authorities are following leads, but no arrests have been made. null
