Walker County authorities say a woman and her 2-year-old grandson were found dead inside a rural home near Huntsville.
A spokesman from Texas DPS told KPRC-TV Houston that deputies received a call about the bodies Wednesday afternoon from the husband of the 60-year-old woman.
“Deputies responded to a 911 call of a double murder. When the deputies arrived on the scene, they found one black female and one black child, infant, deceased,” said state DPS Trooper Erik Burse.
Detectives did not immediately release the cause of death or the names of the victims. Authorities have not said how the bodies were found or the circumstances surrounding their death.
Officials said they do not have any suspects or persons of interest at the time.
