Grandma stabbed multiple times, killer on the run

WEATHERFORD, Okla. – Police found a grandmother murdered inside her Weatherford home, and her family is begging for answers.

Sisters were emotionally broken Monday. Six days earlier, detectives found their mother, Paula O’Brian, stabbed to death, and the killer is still on the loose.

“Why and who? I mean, how? She was too young, so full of energy,” said the victim’s daughter, Belicia Kirkland.

Those questions police are working to answer. Monday, they snapped photos of evidence outside the trailer on S. Bradley St.. They are trying to build a timeline surrounding the grandmother’s death.

“I still keep waiting on a phone call to tell me it it’s not real,” said Ellen Pilley.

Pilley hadn’t spoken to her mom in days before police found her dead.

“We were really concerned because she always called us,” said Pilley, “She always talked to us.”

So family called police and waited outside the trailer while officers went in to check on O’Brian, but it was too late.

“I got upset, and I just prayed to God that whoever done this would come to justice,” said Kirkland. “She didn’t deserve any of it.”

Now O’Brian’s seven children and 18 grandchildren want her killer to know what they’ve taken.

“Not only did they take an innocent person’s life, but they hurt a lot of people, too. A lot of kids are going to grow up. They’re not going to be able to see their grandma,” cried Kirkland.

Police are still asking for more information on this murder.

If you saw something suspicious, they want to hear from you.
