On Saturday morning, there were reports that a woman named Ashley Lockhart had been found stabbed to death inside of a minivan. This prompted the call for a police response to a brutal stabbing.
Following the brutal stabbing death of a 32-year-old woman, who was allegedly murdered by the man who was her partner and the father of her children, six young girls were left without a mother. According to the reports of the police, she was fatally stabbed on the 5300 block of Chestnut Street, and then her body was left in an abandoned gold Honda Odyssey.
The incident was so horrifying, according to sources who spoke with Fox 29, that the knife was still embedded in the victim’s skull when the police arrived.
A Mother of six named Ashley Lockhart was stabbed a total of sixteen times in Philadelphia
According to Fox 29, law enforcement officers discovered the body of Ashley Lockhart inside a gold Honda Odyssey that was parked on the shoulder of a road in West Philadelphia shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. She was stabbed 16 times, and her six children were left alone during the attack.
The victim had multiple stab wounds to her body, including one to her face, according to the police report. Additionally, it was mentioned that the victim and the perpetrator got into an argument prior to the victim’s death.
Despite the fact that a weapon was discovered at the scene, the police have not made any arrests despite the fact that they reported having a person of interest, a male aged 34, in custody. It is believed that Ashley Lockhart had a romantic relationship with this person of interest, who is also thought to be the father of her children.
Lockhart’s name has not been mentioned in any official news sources; however, due to the large number of people discussing the tragic event on social media, she has become a current trend on Facebook.
A photograph of Lockhart and her six daughters, ranging in age from five months to ten years, has been making the rounds on the internet. In the photograph is also a man who appears to be her boyfriend and the person who is suspected of killing Lockhart.
When Ashley Lockhart was younger, did her husband ever hit or otherwise mistreat her?
It is believed that domestic violence played a role in the murder of Ashley Lockhart, as well as the fact that the victim had a history of being abused by the man who is the father of her children, despite the fact that the motive for the crime has not been determined.
A state representative who was interviewed by Fox 29 for a video report stated that Lockhart lived with her boyfriend just a few blocks away from the location where her body was found and that she was the subject of opposition to a protection from abuse order at the time of her death. It is not known for certain whether or not the man in question is the biological father of each of Lockhart’s six children.
The moment that the man who was thought to be the woman’s boyfriend jumped into the vehicle and appeared to abuse the woman before stabbing her 16 times all over her body and face was captured on camera by a surveillance system.
The incident was so horrifying, according to sources who spoke with Fox 29, that the knife was still embedded in the victim’s skull when the police arrived. Those members of the community who discussed the terrible event did so with disbelief and lamentation on their faces.
After their mother’s passing, the six children of Ashley Lockhart have started a GoFundMe campaign.
A GoFundMe account has been set up by Ashley Lockhart’s family for the benefit of her six daughters. On Saturday, August 6, 2022, Ashley Lockhart was cruelly and unexpectedly taken from her six lovely daughters, family, and loved ones, according to the GFM, which has a goal of $15K. The GFM states that the tragedy occurred on Saturday.
Ashley was a wonderful mother who put in a lot of effort and was dedicated to being there for her children. She devoted her full attention to each of her children, she showed them the utmost love, and she made personal sacrifices on their behalf that they will never forget.
Since it is so difficult to comprehend and even more difficult to even attempt to move forward in light of this, our family’s goal is to ensure that the girls maintain their forward momentum.
The ages of the girls range from ten to eight to six to five to three months. We will make it a priority to maintain the cohesiveness of the “6 Charms,” as Ashley referred to her daughters, and to ensure that the memory of their mother lives on in their grandmother’s legacy.
