HOUSTON— The woman who was found dead in Lake Houston Tuesday died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest, the medical examiner said Friday.
Some residents of the Lake Shore Villas apartments on Lake Houston spotted the woman’s body in the water.
Police said it happened at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at 19800 Atascocita Shores. When authorities got there they found it was a white female in her 50s who had been shot in the torso, according to HPD Officer J. Horn.
Many residents expressed concern Wednesday after the discovery.
“It’s frightening. We’ve never had anything like that happen around here, ever,” said longtime Lake Houston resident Connie Perwien.
