PLANO, Texas (AP) — Police in a Dallas suburb are investigating the deaths of a mid-20s woman and her 4-year-old son in a possible murder-suicide.
Plano police said Friday that officers responding to a welfare call found the woman and her son dead. Each had a gunshot wound. A handgun was found at the scene.
Officer David Tilley says officers are still investigating a possible motive, but all indications are that the mother shot her son. Tilley says he’s not aware of any previous calls to the woman’s apartment or signs of trouble.
The Collin County medical examiner’s has not yet determined the cause of death.
Police identified the woman as Lydia Soto. The boy’s name was not released.
