Neighbors Remember Mother of 3 Killed in Sherwood Deadly Stabbing

SHERWOOD, Ark. -- A deadly stabbing claims the life of a mother Saturday in Sherwood.

'I was shocked because they were a pretty quiet family," says Jesus Valladares.  He has called his mobile home community home for the past year.

"It's pretty quiet, it's pretty calm, and it's pretty friendly."

Until last night, when he heard his neighbor was stabbed to death. Valladares says the victim has three kids. "They minded their own business, they said hi, but that's about it."

Sherwood police say it happened at a home on Rixey road. "She was pretty happy it seemed. She would always come out and wave, she'd always be outside taking care of her kids."

Neighbors say the mother was from Honduras and didn't have much family in the United States. "Stuff like this happens every day but when it happens in your neighbor, I don't know."

Now, Valladares is hoping the person responsible for killing his neighbor - is caught soon. "I just hope people stop the violence."

Police are now looking for a person of interest. They say they are looking for a man named Pedro Garcia. Neighbors say that's the name of the victims boyfriend. If you know where he is, contact Sherwood police.
