HOUSTON—A woman returned to her home near Katy Tuesday night to find her husband dead, two of her children tied up and a family vehicle missing, according to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies.

It happened in the 19300 block of Plantain at Deermoss in the Silver Mill subdivision.

Deputies said the woman returned home from work around 10 p.m. and found her husband, 31-year-old Russell Lopez, dead inside a bedroom. She then found two of her children, both under the age of 10, tied up in a separate bedroom. A 6-month-old was also home at the time. The children were all physically OK.

Detectives said Lopez had multiple lacerations on his body which may have come from a blunt object.

The suspect fled the scene in the husband’s black Chevy Tahoe, license plate number 03SHS6.
