Katy Woman Finds Dead Husband, Bound Kids When She Returns Home

KATY, Texas (AP) — Investigators say a Houston-area man has been found slain in his home and two of his three children were tied up but not hurt.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says nobody has been arrested in the apparent home invasion.

Sgt. Greg Pinkins says the victim’s wife arrived home Tuesday night and discovered the body and the two bound youngsters. The children are believed to be age 10 and younger. The couple’s baby was found unharmed at the residence.

Deputies have identified the slain man as 31-year-old Russell Lopez. No cause of death has been released.

Authorities say the family’s SUV is missing.
