Daughter Finds Mom & Dad Dead

"HOUSTON, TX — A husband and wife were found shot to death in a suspected murder/suicide in south Houston home Sunday morning. The husband's wound apparently self-inflicted, Houston Police said.

"Raul Cruz, whose age was unknown, and Maribel Cruz, 43, were found dead around 7 a.m. at their home at 9523 Garden Bridge, according to HPD spokesman Kese Smith.

"Police believe at this time that Raul Cruz killed Maribel Cruz and then himself, though police are still waiting on an autopsy.

"A firearm was also recovered.

"The Cruz's two daughters heard gunshots in the early morning hours, but after checking on their parents and finding them apparently asleep, went back to sleep themselves, Smith said.

"He said when one of the daughters got up to get ready for work in the morning, she noticed her stepfather Raul Cruz's truck still in the driveway, when he should have been at work.

"She then found the Cruz's dead, Smith said.

"There was no information yet on a motive, police said."
