About quarter of an hour later after arriving at the scene, the police found the dead bodies of the couple’s 9 years old daughter Susana, and 8 years old son Vincente in Dora Buenrostro's apartment as they were stabbed in the neck in their sleep and later that day their last child, 4-years old Deidra was found dead in an abandoned post office in the Lakeview section of Riverside County stabbed in the neck with a knife and ball point pen ( Authorities discovered Deidra was killed two days earlier). But No weapon was recovered at either scene.

SHE KILLED HER THREE CHILDREN AND FRAMED HER HUSBAND "FOR REVENGE": The estranged husband Alejandro Buenrostro was brought in for questioning together with Dora.
