Pastor, his family found dead in apartment
Police say they were found inside their west Houston apartment and appear to be the victims of murder, but won't say much else

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Apartment 573, still behind yellow crime tape on Tuesday afternoon, is the site of an active investigation for more than 20 hours. One officer told Eyewitness News there is a lot inside to document.

The deliberative investigation concerns neighbor Amy White.

"What are they looking for? What do they they think they're going to find there?" she asked. "They don't have answers. And if they don't have the answers, we need more answers."

The Houston Police Department did tell Eyewitness News early Tuesday afternoon there was no new information to release about what they discovered inside the apartment, other than someone killed Espiscopal Priest Israel Ahimbisibwe, his wife Dorcus, and their five-year-old son Jay.

Parishioners at Redeemer Episcopal Church became concerned when they didn't appear for Sunday services. Police believe they were killed days before their bodies were discovered.

The Ahimbisibwes have two teenage surviving sons. One attends a boarding school in California. Investigators have not been able to locate the other son.
