Missing 14-month-old boy found safe, but both parents now dead

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A violent shooting on Houston's northwest side left two little boys without a mother.

The Houston Police Department issued an Amber Alert for 14-month-old Tyemetheus Pack Tuesday morning, after they found his mother Angel Jackson dead in her apartment.

The Alert was cancelled just before noon, after authorities tracked Tyemetheus' father, 44-year-old Tumetheus Pack, to Arkansas.

Little Tyemetheus was found safe. Investigators said Tumetheus killed himself, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Jackson's sister, Daviana Standokes, spoke with Eyewitness News Tuesday afternoon. She said Jackson's seven-year-old son is safe with his father in Louisiana. Standokes stood, visibly upset, overwhelmed and in shock. She remembered Jackson as a hardworking mother, who just moved to Houston about a month ago. Standokes said she doesn't know how she'll explain what happened to the little boy one day.

"I can't imagine it because I'm a mama," said Standokes. "That's the only thing I can't imagine is leaving before my children, before they're grown."

Eyewitness News confirmed with Oregon's Department of Correction Pack was already wanted for violating his parole. The department said Pack absconded in June 2012, and had been on the run ever since. Pack had been released after serving eight years for a kidnapping charge.
