"PEARLAND, TX — Police are investigating an apparent murder/suicide after two people were found dead in a Pearland residence.
"According to Pearland police, officers responded to a home on 911 South Peach Hollow Court after family members tried unsuccessfully to make contact with the homeowner, Vera Osburn.
"A neighbor told police that Osburn, who is in her 70s, had not been seen since Tuesday and did not show up for a scheduled game night Thursday. That neighbor called family members, who then called police.
"Police arrived, and said Osburn and a male acquaintance of hers, identified as Charles Engle, were both found deceased inside the residence.
"Pearland police said preliminary indications suggest it was a murder/suicide, but the investigation continues."
