Ask the husband who it was.

Scary. A girl in a white dress coming out of nowhere with a knife in one own's house.

Wow. That we all thought the same thing is a bit scary. Says a lot about our overall opinion of people in general.

If the cops want to solve this, they should be talking with the husband. 20~30-something women don't fit the profile for break-ins, robbery, or random acts of violence. But spurned lover? Yeah, talk to the husband.
