2 people found dead inside home in Galveston County, deputies say

GALVESTON, Texas – An investigation is underway after two people were found dead inside of a home in Galveston County Friday, deputies said.

A police source identified the men, as younger, perhaps in their 20s.

Identifications of the victims were still not confirmed by the Galveston County Sheriff as of Friday evening.

Deputies said the two people were found around 3:45 a.m. at a home located on Old Alvin Road and FM 517.

According to the Galveston County sheriff, they are trying to figure out if this was a double-homicide or a murder-suicide.

A police source said that a gun was found at the scene of the crime.

“It was really vacant for a very short time and these people moved in and started working on the house,” Dwight Elkins, a neighbor, said.

Another neighbor who wanted to remain anonymous told KPRC 2 that he believes he met the two men last weekend, when they informed them they were going to have a party at the house, and to let them know if it got too loud.

The neighbor reported he never heard the party, but he recalled that one of the men identified himself as the boyfriend of the woman who was renting the house.
