Body of Missing Mother Turns Up at the Morgue With Stab Wounds, Still No Signs Of Her Two Sons
The body of a missing Orange County woman turned up in the county morgue, but her two sons are still missing.Authorities had been looking for Arlet Hernandez Contreras, 31, ever since someone sent to clean the Orange apartment where she lived with her two sons found a blood-stained carpet last week. Right away, police turned their attention to Shazer Fernando Limas, 31, her estranged boyfriend and the father to her children. Limas was apprehended after a high-speed chase.
Contreras was identified in the Los Angeles County morgue, according to City News Service. She was an apparent victim of a stabbing. Her body had been found by county workers in the city of La Puente, although it isn't clear where specifically it was found.
Police don't have any clues about where to find her 4-month-old baby and 2-year-old son. Authorities already searched a Brea landfill for signs of their bodies, but with no luck.
