A 12-year-old Tennessee girl texted her mother that she thought she heard someone at the door.

About an hour later, she was found brutally murdered.

That’s what Nashville officials report about Yhoana Arteaga’s death on August 10th. 

She had been home and on crutches after a skating injury.

When officials found her dead the scene was reportedly horribly shocking.

“I’ve never seen anything this brutal in my entire career,” Nashville Police Sergeant David Kautzman said.

Police say it’s been difficult to figure out who may have killed her.

They are encouraging anyone with information to come forward.

In the meantime, a GoFundMe page has raised more than $11,000 to help the family.
