Son Stabs Mother, Killing Her NR09261ne

Los Angeles:  Officers conducting a Welfare Check in the 7600 block of Reseda Boulevard find a woman stabbed to death.

On Monday, June 1, 2009, West Valley Area patrol officers responded to a radio call of a 'Welfare Check’.  The request was called in by family members who reported that they had not seen the victim since the prior evening at about 5:00 p.m.  

Some family members went to the victims' home and became alarmed when they saw things out of place in the home.  They searched the home and found that a bedroom door was locked from the inside causing them concerned that the victim could be in the room.

When officers arrived they were met by a relative that had located the key to the locked room.  Officers found the body of 40-year-old Saida Munguia on the floor.  It appeared that Munguia had been stabbed multiple times.  Paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced her dead.

Witness’s statements lead detectives to believe that the victims’ son 24-year-old Bryan Garcia-Munguia was responsible for this horrible incident.  Bryan was not at the home when officers arrived.  

Later that evening relatives spotted Bryan near a restaurant near the home and grabbed him and held him until the police arrived.

Bryan Garcia-Munguia was arrested and booked for the murder of his mother Saida Munguia and is being held on $1,000,000.00 bail.

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Valley Homicide Detectives at 818-374-7730.  After hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text "Crimes" with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with "LAPD."  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
