HOUSTON – Police are looking for person of interest in connection to a double-homicide involving a mother of four and one of her sons Saturday in southwest Houston.

Homicide detectives with the Houston Police Department want to talk to Keith Turner, whose mother and younger brother were found, shot to death in their home in the 7100 block of Bahia Lane near Blue Ridge Road. Both victims were shot multiple times.

HPD said that at about 8 a.m. a woman, one of the twin daughters of the female victim, discovered the bodies of her mother and her brother in the living room of their home. The daughter went over to a neighbor’s home where they called police.

“The sister came and knocked on the door this morning, and I was the second person that found the bodies,” neighbor Carlos Pomares said.

Police said that there was no sign of forced entry or a struggle. Nothing appeared to be stolen from the home.

Police are also looking for a 2001 black Dodge Dakota with the license plate number BLS-7589, which was taken from the scene.

Neighbors said the female victim was a mother in her 60s, with grown twin daughters and two sons who were still living with her. Her husband had passed away.

“They seemed happy,” one neighbor said.

The woman was often seen working in her yard, and neighbors called her “Momma Turner.”

Friends have a message for the killer.

“If something is wrong, man, don’t, don’t run from it. Just allow God to take over your soul and bring you home,” Brandon Hatcher, a friend, said.

Neighbors said the family had been living in the neighborhood since the 1970s and that “Momma Turner” taught special education at Willowridge High School up until she recently retired.

“Just really, really, a good family,” former neighbor Darrin Therman said.
