Man kills 3 people, himself in murder-suicide in Cypress
An estranged husband shot and killed his 4-year-old daughter, her mother, and grandmother, before turning the gun on himself.
Their bodies were found by Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies Thursday morning, after they were called to the apartment in northwest Harris County when the child’s mom didn’t show up for work.
Since then, we’ve learned the husband and wife were going through a divorce.
And there were reports of the husband being abusive.
A police report was filed against him just last month.

Cornyn: Texas AG Ken Paxton’s legal woes an ’embarrassment’
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn has blasted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s legal woes as an “embarrassment.”
The senator on Thursday gave the sharpest rebuke of Paxton to date from a senior Texas Republican as Paxton appears poised to win the party’s nomination for a third term.
Paxton has been under state felony indictment for nearly his whole time in office and is separately being investigated by the FBI after his top deputies accused him of corruption.
He is competing in the Republican primary run-off primary against Land Commissioner George P. Bush.
Paxton responded that Cornyn “represents the Bush wing of the GOP.”
GOP directs culture war fury toward green investing trend
Red state officials are coming out swinging against growing Wall Street efforts to consider environmental risk in investment decisions.
Their target is “ESG,” which stands for environmental, social and governance. The principles call on investors to consider factors other than traditional financial metrics in their decisions.
The acronym has become the latest culture war fodder in conservative media and in state government this year.
The movement against green investing indicates how the GOP has become more willing to damage its relationship with big business to fight ideological foes. Opposition has been particularly strong in red states where fossil fuels make up a large part of the economy.
