A woman was killed with what is described as a ‘blunt object,’ and investigators are searching for answers.


A woman was killed with a blunt object in her adult group home, according to Sacramento Police.

At approximately 8:19 p.m. Tuesday, officers rushed to Matson Drive near 21st Street because of a report of a woman bleeding and in need of medical aid.

They quickly learned that the woman had been attacked inside of her home and hit with a blunt object, causing her death.

At this time, detectives believe that the suspect knows the victim, and that this was not a random attack.
