PRESS RELEASE BY: LT. DAN NORRIS
On October 11, 2011, at approximately 6:00 PM Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies were dispatched to 75 N. Fronteria Circle Key (Map 215 X) in The Woodlands, Texas. When deputies arrived they found that a mother had shot her 7 year old son then shot herself committing suicide.
Deputies found 7 year old John “Jack” Crawford and his 41 year old mother Stepheni dead inside the home from gunshot wounds. Stepheni’s husband and Jack’s father arrived home from work to find the two dead and called 911.
Major Crime detectives and Crime Scene investigators worked into the night collecting and examining evidence and conducting interviews. Detectives believe that Stepheni Crawford shot her son in the living room of the home then turned the gun on herself. A motive for the shooting remains under investigation.
Justice of the Peace Edie Connelly ordered the two bodies taken to the Montgomery County Forensic Center in Conroe for autopsies.
