By  | 

A woman is stabbed several times at a Colorado Springs motel with her child inside the room. Now, police are searching for her killer. The murder happened at the Ranch Motel on North Nevada Avenue early Wednesday morning.

Police say 45-year-old Diana Young was stabbed multiple times and then ran out of her motel apartment, knocking on neighbors' doors looking for help, leaving behind a trail of blood.

"We believe the stabbing happened right in her apartment, room #23, knocked on doors asking for help," Sgt. Sal Fiorillo with the Colorado Springs Police Homicide Unit says.

But, when help arrived, the woman had died just outside of her place. She had only been living here less than a month with her baby son.

"I looked out the curtain at 3:30am, saw police cars and I knew something wasn't right," Every Bustos says. Living here for more than 2 years, he says it’s usually pretty quiet. "It's scary because it's so close. It don't want make me want to move, but it makes me more cautious."

Police say the woman's son, who’s about 1-2 years old, is okay.
