"This is a frightful, horrific scene". The child's identity hasn't been released, but Lyons says a woman was found safe locked in a bedroom closet.
The sheriff's office said its detectives are investigating along with the Texas Rangers and would not confirm whether they believe the case is a murder suicide. Delaney's mother alleges that she woke up to loud noises outside her bedroom and called her son in angst.
Lyons says a firearm was recovered from the house about 75 miles northeast of Houston and that no suspects are being sought. She is the one who called the cops at around 10:30 a.m.
