HOUSTON – According to their family, a mother and daughter were found shot to death Saturday inside their southeast Houston apartment complex.

The victims were identified by relatives as Lesly Erazo Reyes, 35, and her daughter Esly Dayana Jimenez Erazo, 16.

“We are shattered, nobody expects this,” said Reyes’ sister Ada Erazo.

The gruesome discovery was made by loved ones who were checking up on the mother and daughter after not hearing from them, according to the family.
