California woman was fatally stabbed while working in furniture store
A Los Angeles woman was stabbed to death in a random attack on Thursday afternoon while working at a high-end furniture store.
24-year-old Brianna Kupfer was killed when a suspect entered Croft House in Hampton Park, south of Hollywood. He lunged at the woman and stabbed her multiple times before leaving through the back door.
Kupfer was alone at the store at the time of the attack.
No arrests have been made, police said.
At about 2 p.m., a customer entered the store to find Kupfer lying on the floor in blood and called the police.
The responding officers pronounced her dead at the scene.
Security video showed the suspect strolling down an alley wearing all black and a white face mask. He has not been identified, though police said they believe he is homeless.
“I’m absolutely devastated for her and her family,” Croft House co-owner Riley Rea told the Los Angeles Times. “It just seems so disgusting and unexpected. Really there are no words to say how shocked we are to lose such a wonderful person.”
