The cause of death has yet to be determined, as well as a motive. At this time we are asking for the public's help in locating a person of interest in this case, a female Hispanic 30 years old named Liliana Carrillo.

The bodies of Carrillo's three children were discovered by their grandmother around 9:30 a.m. local time in the neighborhood of Reseda, LAPD Sgt. David Bambrick detailed to NBC Los Angeles.

Police initially identified Carrillo as a person of interest in the killings before they later shared a statement saying that the mother of three committed a carjacking near Bakersfield, and may have been driving in a stolen pickup truck.

Carrillo was later apprehended and taken into custody in Tulare County after a long-distance car chase, the Times reported.

"These are the moments we carry throughout our career," Lt. Raul Joel said, according to the outlet. "It's hard to process that as a police officer."

The children's father, Erick Denton, is "devastated" over the news of his children's death, his cousin, Teri Miller, told NBC Los Angeles, adding that Denton had been trying to get custody of his three kids and had reportedly reached out to the Department of Children and Family Services and police for help on numerous occasions.

Elizabeth Cuevas, a resident who lived in the apartment above Carrillo, told the Times that she knew the children's grandmother, who was reported to be their primary caregiver.

On one occasion, Cuevas said she met one of the children — a little girl — who asked if she could pet her Chihuahua mix. "She was a perfect little angel," Cuevas told the Times. "She was precious beyond what you could imagine."

A GoFundMe page has been created in an effort to aid the family.
