DETROIT, Michigan (CNN) — Police found four children inside a Detroit home alone Thursday night along with the body of their mother.
Police say the children who range in age from eight-months to 5-years-old were inside the home when their mother was stabbed multiple times. Neighbors say the mother was in her mid-20’s and moved to the home about a month ago.
“I mean, I feel real sorry for the kids because they didn’t have a chance,” says neighbor Michael Brown.
“Everybody out here wish that they had a chance to do something about it before it came to that,” said another neighbor Charles Jenkins.
A neighbor became suspicious after seeing the oldest child outside looking for help.
The neighbor discovered the body on the bed and called police. Police say the children are with a family member.
No word on a possible suspect yet, but a neighbor told police one of the children named his father as the attacker.
