Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a report of a body at 3323 Lindenfield Lane at about 5 p.m. Friday afternoon, said Jason Spencer, a spokesman for HCSO. The body was found by the victim’s estranged wife who had also reported it, Spencer said.  

“At this time we’re gathering evidence. We’re talking to neighbors about possible video footage they might have [from their security systems],” Spencer said.

The victim’s wife has been cooperating with the investigation as have neighbors, Spencer said. The department is looking to create a timeline for when the man might have been killed and the department had no suspects as of the Friday evening press briefing near the scene.

The incident occurred in a subdivision located in the northeastern corner of the intersection of Morton and Fry roads near the Mayde Creek and Ricewood communities.

Suicide has been ruled out, Spencer said. No suspects have yet been identified and a the estranged wife had not been considered a suspect at the time of the press briefing, he said.

The victim is a Hispanic male in his mid-thirties, Spencer said.
