Suspects sought after pregnant mom stabbed to death in Venice

- Authorities on Tuesday sought public help to find three people involved in the fatal stabbing of a pregnant mother in Venice.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Division went to 80 Windward Ave. at 9:30 p.m. Monday in response to a report of a fight and an assault with a deadly weapon, said LAPD Lt. John Radtke.

Arriving officers saw the mortally injured woman being held by witnesses. She was treated by Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics before being taken to a hospital, where she died, Radtke said.

She was identified by the coroner's office as Jasmine Angelica Preciado, 22, of Inglewood. Family members told news outlets that she was three months pregnant and the mother of a 3-year-old girl.

Police are looking for two women and a man who left the scene traveling east on Windward Avenue in a dark-colored SUV. Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call LAPD West Bureau Homicide detectives at (213) 382-9470, or (877) LAPD-247.
