No Signs of Forced Entry
Yesterday, authorities received a call concerning a residence. Fulshear Police conducted a welfare check yesterday morning at a residence at the 7400 block of Katy-Fulshear Road. The home was locked, with no signs of a forced entry, but the officers reported an odor. Upon entering the home, the police found two deceased men.
Names Released (updated:)
Fulshear Police has confirmed that the deceased men are Warrick Alford (41) and Terry Stevenson (64.) Police are referring to this as an "unattended death," which is when a person (or people) die and are not found for days or longer.
According to authorities, one man is the resident of the home and the other is believed to be a neighbor from down the street. The two men are believed to have been deceased for a few days.
Cause of Death is Unknown
Officials said that the bodies were found next to each other in chairs and that the condition of the bodies did not make it apparent as to what the cause of death was.
“No further details will be released until we get the results from the autopsies,” says Fulshear Police Captain Mike McCoy. “That can take a couple of weeks.”
Initial reports indicate that one man was in his 60s and the other in his 40s.
Fulshear Police Express Sympathy
"Our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of these two Fulshear residents. We are a small city and we all hurt when we lose our own," the police department stated.
