Leila Fowler

Right now, police are turning a small northern California town upside-down, looking for whoever killed an 8-year-old girl in her home.

Police in Valley Springs say Leila Fowler was stabbed to death Saturday while her parents were out.

Fowler's 12-year-old brother told police he found her just as an intruder was running from the house.

Now, people are being warned to lock their doors, and there will be extra security at bus stops and schools.
