Teen's death was not suicide, but a homicide, investigators say

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A teen's death that was first reported as a suicide now appears to be a homicide.

On Friday, police were called to the scene 10907 Tanwood Dr. where a teenager was found dead, allegedly with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

But on Saturday, investigators say they determined that was not the truth about the death of 19-year-old Cole Spears.
