SPRINGFIELD, Mo.-- The mother of a woman found dead inside a home last week, said the victim was four months pregnant.

A search warrant shows that Springfield police believe 26-year-old Jessica Conner was stabbed multiple times.

Conner's mother and boyfriend found Conner dead on Friday, April 11, inside a home in the 1100 block of North Sherman Avenue.

The search warrant also stated that the mother told officers that Conner's boyfriend called and asked the mother to check on Conner, because he had been unable to contact her.

Conner's mother told KOLR10 News that her daughter also had an 8-year-old child.

Police say no one is in custody and officers continue to investigate.
