A heartbreaking discovery was recently made in Texas. The bodies of a 46-year-old mother and her 15-year-old daughter were found in their Harris County home.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office suspects that the tragic event resulted from a murder-suicide, with the mother allegedly shooting her daughter before turning the weapon on herself.
Senior Deputy Thomas Gilliland reported that the authorities were called to the scene around 12:05 pm. The call was made after the woman’s relatives entered the house, concerned that they had not heard from the mother and daughter since early Saturday. Family members searched the residence and ultimately discovered the bodies on the second floor.
The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences is collaborating with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives to confirm the initial findings and investigate the circumstances leading up to this tragic event.
As the investigation continues, Deputy Gilliland acknowledged the mental health aspects of the incident. He also emphasized the importance of suicide prevention resources available in the county.
