HOUSTON – A second man has reportedly been found shot to death after investigators connected him to another homicide investigation at a home along T C Jester Boulevard near West 18th street, according to Houston police.

Authorities say the situation began late last month when a man was found dead at the home. A neighbor reportedly called officers after the victim’s car was left running.
HPD officials say the victim, who was identified as Dana Ryssdal, had been shot several times.
Additionally, investigators said Ryssdal’s truck was also missing from the home, causing them to believe it had been taken.
Investigators said they were also searching for the homeowner, 37-year-old James Gerald Martin III.
On Saturday, police revealed they found Martin’s body in another vehicle at the same home where Ryssdal was found.
He had also reportedly been shot and was found dead on Feb. 1.
“We do believe this is going to be an isolated incident but it’s important not to release all the facts and for the integrity of the investigation,” Detective Blake Roberts said.
If you have any information on these two killings, you’re asked to contact Houston police or Crime Stoppers.
UPDATE: Sadly, a man found deceased on Wednesday (Feb. 1) has been positively identified as Mr. Martin. He had been fatally shot.— Houston Police (@houstonpolice) February 4, 2023
