A cleaning worker in Indianapolis was found dead inside an empty medical office, according to reports by FOX59.
The cleaner, Dawn McCutcheon, was believed to have been stabbed to death.
Outside the building, the network said her car was found drenched in blood.
The victim’s son Dalton McCutcheon described the incident as “bloody and horrific.”
“My mom was stabbed to death,” he told FOX 59. “It was a bloody and horrific scene. I wouldn’t wish this on anybody.
“She was here every night, Monday through Friday, cleaning. Just minding her own business.”
While the investigation on the case continues, detectives said that the victim was hit by her killers outside the medical office. They believe that the suspect or suspects attempted to drive her vehicle before finishing up inside the vacant space.
The outlet said that the Indianapolis police currently believe that the single mom knew her killers.
Her family members, meanwhile, believe that the crime was rooted to domestic cruelty.
The victim’s son took the opportunity to urge others who are victims of domestic abuse to look for help.
“There’s always someone to help,” he said. “It doesn’t have to end like this.”
McCutcheon’s death became the second homicide case this year in the city’s Eagle Creek Area, the station reported. Over 230 homicides were meanwhile reported for the whole of Indianapolis this year, FOX News reported.
