Janeil Hooten Bernard Beaten & Stabbed To Death


A 2011 red Cadillac sedan owned by a 79-year-old woman murdered in Hedwig Village was found on Houston's south side Monday morning.

Janeil Hooten Bernard's body was discovered by her housekeeper inside the home on Capri Street on Monday afternoon.

Police believe she was killed sometime Sunday evening. Hedwig Police Sgt. Marvin Collins said he believes Bernard was beaten and stabbed.

"Very brutal scene," Collins said.

Collins said there are indications that Bernard fought back based on her injuries.

The victim's son told investigators he last spoke to his mother around 2:15 p.m. on Sunday.

The vehicle was found in the 2100 block of Van Cleve Street, and was taken by HPD for testing.

Investigators said the area is a "common place" for people to abandon cars, and that the keys to the vehicle were found about 100 feet from the roadway.
