When police arrived, they found the bloody body of a 69-year-old woman .

“Her body was partly in the kitchen, the other half of her body was in the hallway,” said Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small. “She obviously had multiple stab wounds to her neck and upper chest. There was actually a knife still lodged in her chest.”
