The Edinburg Police Department just held a press conference this afternoon following a quadruple homicide on Tuesday morning.
Edinburg Police Chief Cesar Torres read a prepared statement during the conference and did not take questions due to “the sensitivity of the investigation.”
Torres said that on Tuesday morning, officers were called out to 301 West Kuhn Street after a 911 call of a woman found dead, just after 6:45 a.m., at an apartment complex.
Torres stated that during their investigation, four people were found dead. We’re told that two of the victims are mother and daughter, another was the boyfriend of one of the two females, and the last was a home provider.
Any loss of life is tragic and today our city has lost four people due to senseless act of violence,” Torres said during the press conference. “I can assure the community that my officers and investigators will work tirelessly to find answers in hopes of providing closure to the families and bringing justice to the ones lost.
A male toddler was also found, is currently in safe hands, and being monitored.
The names of the victims have not yet been released, pending notification of next of kin.
This is a dark day for the City of Edinburg.
Torres said that at this point, it is unclear whether the incident was murder or was a murder-suicide.
