2 retired HCSO members found dead in possible murder-suicide: sheriff

Two people found dead in a possible murder-suicide have been identified as retired members of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said investigators responded to the scene in the 5300 block of Summit Hollow Drive for a welfare check after a family member called to report they weren't able to reach a woman who lived there.

The deputies conducting the welfare check Tuesday morning found a man and a woman dead in what appeared to be a murder-suicide.

Deputies also reported that they found a purse and shopping bags in the car.

The man, who is in his late 60s, and the woman, who is in her late 50s, appeared to be in a relationship and both lived at the home.

The sheriff says the investigation is ongoing.
