Police were searching Monday for a suspect in the fatal stabbing of a 24-year-old employee of a Los Angeles furniture store. 

The woman was found dead by a customer at the store in the Hancock Park neighborhood on Thursday, police said. 

Investigators described the suspect as tall and thin, wearing all black clothing and a face mask. Police haven’t identified a possible motive. 

Family members identified the victim as Brianna Kupfer, a graduate student pursuing an architectural design degree at the University of California, Los Angeles. 

Relatives described Kupfer to CBSLA as a gifted artist who always had a positive attitude.
