HOUSTON (TCD) -- A homicide investigation is underway after a missing 14-year-old male was recently found shot to death nearly a month before his 15th birthday.
In a Facebook post, Texas EquuSearch said Carlos Lugo went missing on Jan. 21 and was last seen near the 2000 block of Tidwell Road.
The victim’s mother told KTRK-TV she dropped her son off at a friend’s home on Tidwell Road, and that was the last time she saw him.
