PLACERVILLE (CBS13) — Investigators are searching for a man after a woman was found stabbed to death in her home and a girl was wounded.

The search is on for Bernardo Castillo, 24, who investigators are describing as a person of interest. He was last seen driving a white Ford Explorer with stickers of pink flip-flops on the back windshield. The license plate is 4XTF911.

“It’s a shock,” said Ray Skuller. “I wouldn’t have expected anything like this to happen here.”

Investigators say the woman was found stabbed to death inside the home at around 5 p.m. on Tuesday and a 4-year-old girl was taken to the hospital with stab wounds.

Neighbors say the girl could be seen playing in the community and has a bright personality.
