21-Year-Old Houston Man Shot Multiple Times is Later Found Dead at Southwest Houston Home
The Houston Police Department is currently awaiting autopsy results in the case of a 21-year-old man found dead at 12325 Hillcroft Avenue on October 12. The deceased has been identified as Nickolai Bichon.
On the night of October 12, Mr. Bichon was reportedly shot by multiple suspects. He was later transported by a family member to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital for medical treatment and was discharged in the early hours of October 13. Later that same day, HPD patrol officers responded to a report of a deceased person at the same address.
Upon their arrival, Houston Fire Department paramedics pronounced Nickolai Bichon deceased.
Initial findings from a preliminary investigation, along with statements from witnesses and family members, suggest that Bichon had attempted suicide a week prior to the incident and may have ingested something earlier in the morning following his discharge from the hospital.
The cause and manner of Nickolai Bichon’s death remain pending verification by an autopsy, which will be conducted by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or speak anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
