"PLANO, TX — A woman and her 4-year-old son were found shot to death in their Plano apartment in an apparent murder/suicide on Friday, authorities say.
"The woman was identified as 28-year-old Lydia Soto, but her son had not been named.
"`Based on our investigation, everything is pointing to a murder/suicide,` said Officer David Tilley, a Plano police spokesman. The official cause of death will be determined by the Collin County medical examiner’s office, he said.
"Police said that about 10:25 a.m., officers went to Soto’s apartment in the 6200 block of Windhaven Parkway between Midway Road and the Dallas North Tollway to check on her and her son.
"`A friend of the resident had called us concerned about the welfare of her friend and her child,` Tilley said.
"Officers found the apartment locked, but a maintenance worker opened the door for police. Inside, officers found Soto and her son dead from gunshot wounds.
"Citing the investigation, Tilley said he could not release any additional information about what made the friend concerned."
