Wanda Mittie Threadgill, a 42-year-old black woman, was found dead Tuesday, Dec. 17, in the 9500 block of South Western Avenue in Gramercy Park, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records.

Family members hadn’t heard from Threadgill in nearly two weeks and decided to go to her apartment to check up on her, LAPD Lt. Jeff Nolte said.

Crystal Spradley, 27, found her mother dead in a bedroom, she said. She immediately called police, who set up a crime scene.

Threadgill was pronounced dead at 11:55 a.m., but police said she could have been dead for days.

An autopsy showed that Threadgill died of multiple stab wounds, according to the coroner’s office.
