Grandmother Found Dead In A Shed

Harris County Sheriff's deputies have confirmed the dead woman found inside a Cypress home is the grandmother of one of the detained suspects.

The discovery of the body in the 17000 block of East Longwood Meadows Sunday afternoon, led to a homicide investigation.

Currently, the grandson of the victim and his girlfriend have been taken into custody, according to police.

"There was some blood found inside the trailer, on the back porch and after they did a search of the area they found the body of a white female," said Sgt. Ben Beall, a Harris County Sheriff's Office Homicide Detectives.

Detectives say the body was found wrapped in a blanket in a storage shed.

They say other relatives who live at the home grew worried after they had received threats from the grandson.

"He was texting messages to family members threatening to kill his mother and grandmother, to take the car," said Sgt. Beall.

Eyewitnesses told deputies the 21-year-old grandson and his girlfriend were loading up things from the house into the grandmother's car when they confronted him.
