One fatally wounded woman was found in the living room of the main house, which is located in the 7800 block of Irvine Avenue. The other two woman were found in a converted garage.
The survivor suffered wounds to her upper body and wrists. She is expected to survive. Police are calling her a "person of interest" in the September 2 attacks.
All three women are apparently related.
Police are still trying to figure out the motive and if any of the women lived at the single family house. According to police, a neighbor spotted one of the bodies in the front room of the house around 11:40 a.m. and called 911. Anyone with information about the stabbings should call Foothill Division detectives at (818) 834-3110.
