Mother, son found dead in Sugar Land home; father dead from apparent suicide near San Marcos

Police said Richard Logan lived in the house with Diana Logan and their 11-year-old son Aaron.

SUGAR LAND, Texas — Sugar Land police are investigating a heartbreaking double murder scene in the Greatwood subdivision.

A woman and child, identified as Diana Lynn Logan, 48, and her 11-year-old son Aaron Logan, were found shot to death Tuesday inside a house in the 8500 block of Evening Light Drive.

Police initially went to the house to notify Diana Logan about the death of her husband, 53-year-old Richard Logan, whose body was found at a business in Guadalupe County. 

No one answered the door when police arrived, so a family friend with a key let them in. That’s when officers found the victims.

"It's always a tragedy any time you have a death -- specifically a young kid, so we're going to do everything we can to protect the integrity of this investigation and do everything we can to do a proper investigation," said Sugar Land Police Chief Eric Robins.

Sugar Land Police spokesman Doug Adolph said it appears Richard Logan took his own life. The Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office said he died from a single gunshot wound.

"Our initial investigation has revealed that Richard Logan's death is related to an ongoing investigation in Sugar Land, Texas," the sheriff said in a statement.

Police said Richard Logan lived in the house with Diana Logan and their son.

Richard Logan founded a non-profit called Attack Poverty. 

"The Attack Poverty family is in shock to learn of the tragedy involving our Chief Executive Officer Richard Logan and his family," the group said in a statement.

Richard Logan was a former youth and missions pastor at River Pointe Church in Richmond. 

“While we still don’t know many details, we are so sad and shocked to learn of the tragedy involving the Logan family," the church said in a statement. "We ask that everyone pray for the family and friends who are suffering during this time."

Aaron Logan was a student at Campbell Elementary School. Lamar ISD released the following statement:
