‘Around the clock’ search for Simi Valley mom after blood found in home
A woman is still being sought after her blood was found in her California home.
The Valley Regional Crime Stoppers says Amber M. Smith, 31, was last seen at 6 p.m. Dec. 5 in the 1200 block of West River Road.
Police identified the victim as Maddy Smith.
Police said Maddy Smith did not make it home from work and, when she came home with a newborn, she decided to go to sleep in her apartment.
But, at 3:30 a.m. Friday, officers were notified by a neighbor that she had discovered “a pool of blood” in the residence.
A criminalist was called immediately and took blood samples from Smith’s car and bedroom.
They said the blood was tested for “blood type B and A positives” and Maddy Smith’s DNA was found inside of the blood.
She was taken into custody and booked at the Los Angeles County Jail for investigation of murder.
She is also being sought on suspicion of residential burglary.
According to the criminal complaint, officers found the bedroom of Smith’s California home “full of blood,” which police believe is “of human origin.”
Investigators said evidence found from the crime scene contained blood of the same type as the blood found inside of Smith’s apartment.
An autopsy was performed and detectives with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services are currently handling the case.
The crime unit said the investigation is ongoing.
Maddy Smith is suspected in a murder.
This is the woman’s boyfriend’s friend and neighbor.
Amber is a mom of three.
She was last seen Dec. 5 at her house on River Road near North Vanowen Street.
When she came home with baby boy, she was told he was deceased.
