WESTMINSTER, Calif. — Police have released surveillance video of a man they believe fatally stabbed a 22-year-old woman at a Southern California motel.
Officials in Westminster said Wednesday they hope the public might help track down the man seen walking up a staircase at the Quality Inn on the afternoon of March 5.
Treeanna Nichols was found dead that day inside a room at the motel.
Investigators say there was no sign of forced entry into the room. Detectives believe the suspect may have been injured in a struggle.
He’s described as a 25 to 30-year-old white or Hispanic man, around 5-feet 10-inches and about 200 pounds. He’s wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt in the surveillance footage.
