Two Homicides in Northwest Harris County Connected, Two Females Dead
Around 9:00pm, Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in the 9700 block of Wortham Blvd, where they discovered the body of a 66-year-old woman dead from multiple gunshot wounds and other trauma.
Early this morning, another call came in from a home on Deep Meadow. A 12-year-old girl reported being sexually assaulted, and deputies found a 42-year-old woman fatally shot inside the residence.
Authorities believe the two crime scenes are connected, as both occurred in close proximity late last night and involved victims who appear to be related.
A 25-year-old male relative of the victims has been detained at one of the scenes and is being questioned. The young girl is receiving medical care.
The investigation into these homicides remains ongoing as detectives work to piece together the circumstances surrounding this deadly family tragedy. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000.
