HOUSTON – Houston police are searching for a suspect who beat and stabbed a northeast Houston homeowner Tuesday morning.

The 57-year-old man was found lying dead in his driveway in the 3500 block of Wayne Street around 7 a.m. Someone stabbed him with a knife and beat him with a pot.

Police said the homeowner had been helping out a female friend who was down on her luck recently and had no place to stay. The homeowner offered to let the woman live with him, and the woman also brought another man with her.

It was unclear what sparked the attack, but someone bludgeoned the homeowner to death.

Police want to find the man and woman who were living with the homeowner and bring them in for questioning.
